Beware of cell towers in your neighborhood

Verizon signed a contract with a homeowner in the Winterwarm/Jackson neighborhood to construct a cell tower on their property. We received a one-page project summary from the County’s Planning and Development Services informing us of a proposed unmanned telecommunications site, which is a cell tower.

Thank you, Fallbrook

From the time I moved here in 1960, Fallbrook people have been so wonderful, considerate and compassionate to each other when help is needed. They are there for each other.

Yet another eyesore in town

While the weeds at the old McDonalds continue to grow towards the heavens, there is another eyesore developing in town: the old county welfare building east of Main and Alvarado, which is now run by the Mission Resource Conservation District (MRCD). How about turning the water back on and not killing all the shrubs and […]
