New details emerge as man gets 26 years in hammering death By NEAL PUTNAM Disturbing new details emerged in court documents about the man who bludgeoned Jean Eskridge, 94, to death in her Ramona home. He was sentenced June 16 to 26 years to life in prison. Many family members and friends of Eskridge attended the sentencing of Gary Allen Thomas, 64, who said nothing before El Cajon Superior Court Judge Allan Preckel sentenced him. Thomas, who lived near

Eskridge, pleaded guilty April 15 to first-degree murder. Carol Ann Eskridge, the victim’s daughter-inlaw, asked Thomas to turn around and look at photos of Jean Eskridge, but he laid his head on the table with his back to the audience and softly cried in his blue jail clothing. “I want you to spend every waking hour you have begging forgiveness from God, because He’s the only one who can forgive See THOMAS, page 12

Praising the drafted $32 million budget because it funds operations and projects with less impact on customers than anticipated, Ramona Municipal Water District directors adopted the 2013-14 fiscal year document that includes rate increases of 3 percent for water and 4.5 percent for sewer. The new rates went into effect July 1, the start of RMWD’s fiscal year. “I think this is an excellent job by staff,”said Di-

rector Rex Schildhouse at the June 25 board meeting that included a public hearing. “This is a remarkably good budget,” Director Joe Zenovic commented. The treated water rate, when combined with the electrical charge to pump water to Ramona, will increase from $5.23 per unit to $5.39 per unit. The electrical charge is jumping from 65 cents to 92 cents per unit, which RMWD attributes in part See RATE HIKES, page 12

Court to hear fire tax arguments in July The state’s $150 fire prevention fee, that is being challenged by the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association as an illegal tax under Proposition 13, will be the focus of a hearing scheduled for July 19 in Sacramento Superior Court. The taxpayers association filed a class action lawsuit against the California Department of Forestry and the Board of Equalization, seeking to overturn the fee charged annually to rural property owners and to require the state to refund to those who had paid. According to the association, the state responded by filing a demurrer, a pleading that argues the case cannot be brought as a class action, and that no one is entitled to relief who did

not file a timely petition for redetermination with the California Department of Forestry. “A successful demurrer could knock the lawsuit out of court before there is ever a trial,” stated the association in a news release. Lawyers for the taxpayers association will defend the theory that “the state should not be allowed to keep anyone’s money if the fee is indeed illegal,” and the court will either sustain or overrule the state’s demurrer, reads the release. The $150 per habitable structure fire fee was charged last year to approximately 100,800 property owners in San Diego County and affected 11,000 structures in Ramona.

Emergency personnel transport an elderly man who was burned to an ambulance.

Discarded cigarette may be cause of fire, explosion on Ashley Road Man, 75, airlifted to burn center A discarded cigarette is believed to have started a fire the evening of June 26 in the 1300 block of Ashley Road, where a 75-yearold man suffered burns to about 45 percent of his body, said Ramona Fire Department/Cal Fire. Neighbors reported hearing a loud boom or explosion, which was

probably caused by the fire spreading and overheating a CO2 cartridge for an air gun, causing the cartridge to blow up, said Cal Fire Capt. Don Davis with the Ramona Fire Department. The air gun was on the back covered deck where the man was sitting in a chair, he said. Davis said it appeared that the man may have tossed the cigarette into a trash can, and then material on the chair probably

caught fire. The man also may have fallen asleep, he said. Although the chair was under an electrical panel, Davis said, “the fire wasn’t electrical in nature.” According to the captain, the man’s wife heard the wind chimes on the patio, saw the chair on fire, and her husband, who was reported to have limited mobility, crawling See BURN VICTIM page 3

County offers seven horses found without food or water for adoption Seven horses found without food or water in Ramona in May are being put up for adoption, the county of San Diego Department of Animal Services reports. Animal Services employees began monitoring the horses May 20 when they were found on Highway 78, and seized them three days later. Dan DeSousa of county Animal Services told City News Service the owner had 30 horses on her property and moved two-thirds of them before the seizure, and they are still being monitored. Of the 10 that were seized, two were returned to the owner, one was euthanized because it was considered too aggressive to adopt out and seven will be adopted, according to DeSousa. An investigation was continuing, but no decisions have been made on whether to file charges against the woman, he

said. Photographs of the horses can be found on the department’s website at sddac.com/adoptions.asp. Prospective adopters can also check out the horses in person. Six mares are at an animal shelter in Bonita and a stallion is housed at in Carlsbad. The minimum bid for most of the horses is $150. Two of the mares at the Bonita shelter are pregnant, so their minimum bids are $200. An adoption application and a completed sealed bid form, available on the

website, must be submitted to the facility where the horse is housed by 5:30 p.m. July 5. Animal services will screen the applicants and open qualified bids. Winning applicants should be notified by July 10. The county’s animal care facilities are open from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. They are at 5480 Gaines St. in San Diego, 2481 Palomar Airport Road in Carlsbad and 5821 Sweetwater Road in Bonita.

The wife and neighbors used hoses to extinguish the fire by the time firefighters arrived, said emergency responders, who found the burn victim on the grass. In treating the man, Davis said, “Our main concern was to cool the burn down.” He estimated that roughly 3 percent of the burns were third degree.

Speared turkey 'Archer' recuperates in foster home By KAREN BRAINARD The elusive wild turkey seen in San Diego Country Estates with a green arrow through his chest is recuperating at a foster home after his capture and the successful removal of the arrow by a veterinarian. The turkey, known as “Archer,” was captured by two biologists with California Fish and Wildlife on Tuesday, June 25, and taken to Acacia Animal

Health Center in Escondido. “He’s healing well. We need to get a little bit more feathers to grow on him,” said the treatment supervisor at the animal hospital on Monday. Archer’s foster home is with a local individual, she said. Dr. Carrie Bone, D.V.M. with Acacia, said that when the animal hospital took X-rays of Archer, it appeared the arrow was

all in the front muscle and did not damage any vital organs. She put him on antibiotics so an infection would not develop. “It seems like he was pretty skinny,” she said. Acacia has treated turkeys before, Bone said, “but never a turkey with an arrow through it.” San Diego Country Estates residents first reported seeing the turkey with the green arrow in April and worried an infection would set in or he would become an easy target for predators. Doug Lake, executive director with Emergency Animal Rescue in Ramona, said the turkey was hit with a target arrow that is not meant to kill animals like a hunting arrow. Lake said he had been trying to catch Archer for three months. “We chased him all over the place. He was able to run and fly and roosted up in the trees at night,” said Lake. Although Archer was

able to fly, the arrow prevented him from going as high as the other birds, Lake added. Archer hung out within a few blocks of the Davis Cup Lane area, said Lake, who went there almost every evening and weekend to try to capture the turkey by dropping a net. “He was quite elusive and quite wary of humans,” Lake said. Fish and Wildlife officials were able to catch Archer with a net gun that shoots a net out 30 to 40 feet, Lake explained. “I didn’t really care who got it, as long as someone got it,” he said. Lake was part of a group — a combination of residents and volunteers — that was sitting around one time and decided to name the bird. “Someone wanted to name him Green Arrow,” Lake said. Archer, however, was suggested and it stuck. Noting that residents put out food for Archer,

Lake said, “He had been shunned by the rest of the flock because he was a little different from them.” While Archer was at the animal hospital, Lake said he was planning to visit the bird. “It got personal,” he said of his interaction with Archer, adding with a laugh, “After a while I’m being

outsmarted by a turkey.” According to Lake, Archer’s human neighbors in the Estates would like to seem him return. A spokesperson for Fish and Wildlife said the agency responded to a similar circumstance in Davis last year. “This is not unusual, unfortunately,” he said.

County budget includes $45,000 for chamber, $15,000 for museum By JOE NAIMAN Ramona Chamber of Commerce and Ramona Pioneer Historical Society will receive Community Enhancement money from San Diego County for the 2013-14 budget year that started Monday. San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted 5-0 June 25 to adopt the county’s 2013-14 budget, including the distribution of $536,000 in Community Enhancement money targeted for District 2, represented by Supervisor Dianne Jacob, who recommended $45,000 for the chamber and $15,000 for the historical society. Although only Transient Occupancy Tax revenue from lodging facilities in unincorporated San Diego County funds the Community Enhancement program, organizations in incorporated cities are also eligible for grants. Each county supervisor also has a $1 million discretionary Neighborhood Reinvestment Program budget, so some Community Enhancement requests may be funded from that source. The $45,000 for the Ramona Chamber of Commerce is an increase over the

$42,000 it received for 2012-13, although less than its $65,000 request. The chamber said it will use the money for community events such as the installation dinner, open artist studio tour, horseshoe tournament, Ramona Country Fair, Oktoberfest, Merchants’ Safe Trick or Treat program, and holiday tree lighting. The $15,000 to the Ramona Pioneer Historical Society matches last year’s amount. The historical society, which owns and operates the Guy B. Woodward Museum at 645 Main St., had requested $20,000. The Community Enhancement money will be used to pay an operations director who works 30 hours per week. Two Ramona groups that requested money were not on the 2013-14 allocation list. The Ramona Trails Association sought $7,000 for outreach, marketing, and community education programs and to make the Cougar Canyon trail compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act standards. The Wildlife Research Institute requested $325,000 to acquire 70 acres to expand the Ramona Grasslands Preserve and for the Hawk Watch program.

Design review board pushes for shielded parking lots By KAREN BRAINARD Views of parking lots for two proposed projects, a Tractor Supply Company (TSC) store and multifamily housing on 16th Street, became critical issues at the Ramona Design Review Board’s June 27 meeting. Scheduled for 7:30 p.m., the meeting did not start until 7:50, when the ninemember group finally had a quorum. Four members were absent. With the TSC store proposed for vacant parcels at Main and Hunter streets, design review board member Rob Lewallen was adamant that he does not want to see the store parking lot from Main Street. Developer Steve Powell and Architect Carole Wylie, both of Ramona, have been working with an Alabama-based developer who constructs buildings to lease to TSC. The client has been willing to work with the design standards of the not-yet adopted Ramona Village Center

landscaping between the parking lot and Main included a concrete split rail fence with low shrubs planted on each side. But Lewallen, who is also chair of the Ramona Village Design Group that developed the document of customtailored zoning and design standards, said, “I want to screen that big parking lot from Main Street.”

Powell and Wylie pointed out that trees and landscaping will help block parking, as will mounds between the shrubs and parking lot that will display equipment. Lewallen, however, suggested threefoot high shrubs to shield the parking lot. “I’m pretty satisfied with everything else,” he said. “I just don’t want to look

at the parking lot.” Member Greg Roberson, also on the village design group, said he was satisfied that there were enough elements proposed. Design review Chair Debi Klingner and member Evelyn McCormick also said they were fine with the plans. Member Carol Close, who advised on some plant selections, made a motion, which passed 5-0, that the shrubs be 30 inches high and display mounds be 18 to 24 inches above the level of the parking lot. Lewallen said the village design group plans to meet in July with property owners in the Colonnade section, from Etcheverry to Pala streets, to talk about the village center document. The board also saw conceptual plans for a 44-unit multi-family housing complex for 3.6 acres on the west side of 16th Street behind the Stater Bros. shopping center. Members

called the two-story eightunit buildings surrounded by parking spaces an outdated look. Roberson said it did not reflect the current trend of walkable communities that promote interaction with neighbors and do not have parking lots in front. Lewallen suggested design techniques to add to the community character. “There’s a whole different feel,” Roberson said of new apartment complexes. The project was presented by Architect Edward Gros and Bob Burch of Ramona, who said the intent is to have a housing community that is seniorfriendly. To illustrate a look they like, board members pulled out plans for AMCAL’s affordable housing community, proposed on Robertson Street behind Kmart, that has a California farmhouse design and concealed parking.

Elderly driver injured after vehicle strikes signal pole An 84-year-old Ramona man was taken by ambulance to Palomar Medical Center after his vehicle struck a traffic signal pole at Main Street and Montecito Road, CHP reported. The man was the sole occupant in the Ford Taurus and no other vehicles were involved, said CHP

Officer Kevin Pearlstein. According to reports, around 3 p.m. on June 25, the driver pulled out of the post office parking lot, crossed Main Street and hit the signal pole. He had lacerations to his left hand, abrasions to the right side of his head, and pain to his right hip, said Pearlstein.

Teen died of heart complications, medical examiner says Taylor Dorman, Ramona High School sophomore who died April 10 after he was struck in the chest by a softball, had a viral infection in his heart, the county Medical Examiner’s Office reported. The infection, combined with an enlarged and weakened heart, caused him to go into sudden cardiac arrest, the report stated.

The 16-year-old was playing the game “over the line” in physical education class around 11:20 a.m. at school when he was accidentally hit in the chest by the softball. Although he continued to play, about 20 minutes later he collapsed. He was flown to Palomar Medical Center where he died later that day, which was his birthday.

United States of America's Birthday

Freedom—hard to get, but easy to lose “All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.” – Thomas Jefferson By Bryan Golden

W

ill this be America’s last birthday? America is the first country in history to be founded based on individual liberty. The principles of liberty are timeless. The concepts apply as much today just as they did over 200 years ago. Our founders knew firsthand the misery and suffering caused by tyranny. They came from societies where government controlled its citizens with an iron fist. They had a solid understanding of the consequences of unchecked power. The founders also understood human nature. Throughout history, oppression and subjugation had been the norm. They recognized that power hungry people seeking to dominate others would always exist and be a constant threat to our free society. Our Constitution was crafted specifically to limit the scope of government to prevent its infringing on individual liberties. It has numerous checks, balances, and safeguards designed to prevent the rise of tyranny. But our Constitution is only a document. Maintaining a free society requires vigilance and participation. There will always be those seeking to subvert the Constitution to seize control. The power hungry claim the Constitution is out of date. They assert it doesn’t apply to them. They violate your constitutional rights while claiming to act in your best interest. An apathetic and gullible populace facilitates the rise of tyranny. Tyrants depend on people’s ignorance, inaction, or apathy to confiscate power. Tyrants are cunningly deceptive. They claim their mission is so altruistic that it is worth giving up your liberty on the pretext of being in your best interest. Tyrants operate by suppressing liberty in small steps under false pretenses. They target one group at a time. They depend on those unaffected remaining silent because the lost liberty doesn’t affect them. But as liberty incrementally disappears, every group will ultimately be targeted. In short order, freedom is lost by all.

Tyrants exert the power of their position to silence opposition. Liberty thrives on the open flow of ideas in a free society. Totalitarian regimes require the suppression of opposing viewpoints. It’s difficult for good and decent people to comprehend the nefarious intent of the power hungry whose sole objective is the subversion of their liberty. These tyrants lie about their objectives. They publicly proclaim to have only benevolent intentions while working persistently behind the scenes on their malevolent goals. This insidious strategy conceals their real purpose under the guise of fairness, safety, health, and national security. America has more liberty than anywhere else in the world. However, those who have grown up with abundant liberty often take it for granted. When freedom is all they have known, they don’t truly appreciate its irreplaceable nature. They have so much freedom that they are not alarmed when their freedom is gradually smothered. By the time they realize their freedom has vanished, it’s too late. Once liberty is lost, and those seizing it firmly entrenched, it is extremely difficult to recover. Our freedoms are unalienable rights, not privileges granted by government. Every item in the Bill of Rights is a precious jewel designed to ensure the immortality of our liberty. Don’t allow anyone to subvert your liberty. Stand up for and speak out in defense of your rights and the rights of others. You must say NO to those who would take your freedom or your neighbor’s freedom. Freedom lost by anyone impacts everyone. When freedom isn’t insisted on for all, freedom will exist for none. All freedoms are essential, not just the ones you benefit from or believe in. Once one freedom starts to fall, a chain reaction begins that consumes all liberty. Your freedom is hard to get and easy to lose. Although it takes vigilance to protect it, it takes so much more effort to get it back once it’s gone. Only you can ensure that this Independence Day is not America’s last birthday. Bryan Golden is the author of “Dare to Live Without Limits.”

“There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation." – James Madison

Business News New Old Town shop offers stroll through memory lane By Jessica King A new storefront that pays homage to the past is scheduled to open on Main Street today. The Mason Jar is an antique and collectibles store that owner Debbie Roelle says has been in the works for about five years. Thousands of items, from vintage toys and tools to jewelry and kitchenware, await customers in a 3,500-square-foot space at 652 Main St. “It’s the biggest thing I’ve ever taken on in my life, but it’s so exciting,” said Roelle, 53. In honor of its grand opening on July 4, The Ma-

son Jar is offering a storewide discount throughout the month of July. Also, Roelle’s husband, Rick, a mining enthusiast, will be offering gold panning lessons at the grand opening and on the weekends. Though The Mason Jar is Roelle’s first storefront, she has previously sold items out of rented space in antique malls in Ramona and Julian. Her business expertise also extends to selling her vintage goods on eBay, and to Etsy.com, where she sells mostly furniture and glass items she has hand painted. Roelle plans to continue her eBay and Etsy business-

The toy section greets customers at The Mason Jar as soon as they walk in the door.

es out of The Mason Jar. “I just decided to bring everything together,” she said. “Painting is my passion, which is why I’m going to still do it, but everything else is much more profitable.” Bringing everything together has been a family affair all the way down to what to call the new storefront. Roelle and her four kids, ages 14 to 23, chose The Mason Jar moniker to convey a vintage, allinclusive container kind of message — that is after she explained to her two youngest what a mason jar was, joked Roelle. A resident of Ramona for the past 25 years, Roelle said she feels a sort of nervous excitement about owning a store, but the transition has been made easier by the community. “Everyone has been so supportive,” said Roelle of her fellow merchants. “I was unsure at first if they’d view me as competition and not like it, but that hasn’t been the case at all. They’ve been great, really great.” The Mason Jar is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

Excise tax increase hikes gas 3.5 cents per gallon Effective July 1, the excise tax on gasoline increased 3.5 cents per gallon, taking it from 36 cents to 39.5 cents per gallon, Michelle Steel, vice chair of the State Board of Equalization, said Friday. Steel, Southern California’s elected member on the board, voted against the increase. Rising gas prices the past two years and estimates of continued increases obligated staff, under the law, to propose an increase in the excise tax rate, notes a news release. The Board of Equalization approved the increase in a 3-2 vote. “Gas prices rise and fall at different times throughout the year and are notoriously difficult to predict,” she said. “Raising the excise tax rate based on such shaky guessing is wrong, especially when Californians are already hurting. If BOE members had rejected these speculative projections, Californians would have saved 3.5 cents per gallon of gas starting July 1.”

Christmas Bazaar vendors welcome Organizers of Ramona’s 4th Annual Christmas Bazaar are accepting vendor applications for the event, slated for Saturday, Nov. 9, at Mountain View Community Church. Vendor forms are at mvcc.christmasbazaar@gmail.com. Organizers ask that vendors not contact the church.

Marketing your nonprofit What’s a good way to market my nonprofit? Diane Philips Nonprofit organizations must understand the constant need to justify their existence. That requirement can be helped by solid, consistent marketing. Now recognizing that most nonprofits have little money, I’m assuming by “good” you mean both low-budget and effective. With that approach in mind, here are a few thoughts to get you started: •Have a website that tells your story. This should include your vision, events, and ways folks can donate and get involved. Present your board members (with links to their respective websites to provide them with potential business opportunities). •Maintain a blog. Blogs are a good way to attract attention, with the only cost being the writer’s time. Once you commit to doing a blog, though, post an entry at least once each week to maintain an active presence with your audience. •Social networking. Post blog and event infor-

mation and other items of interest on a regular basis. Talk things up before they happen, then provide pictures, results, and stories after the fact. •Send publicity to local media. Online, print and broadcast outlets all want to hear from you about events and other news, and it keeps your group visible. •Network. Attend chamber of commerce events, Kiwanis breakfasts, Rotary lunches, and similar outings with an eye toward spreading the word far and wide. Always carry a brochure, flier, or business card for anyone who wants more information. •Speak out. Lots of groups (Rotary, Kiwanis, San Vicente Valley Club, etc.) regularly seek public speakers. Put together an enthusiastic 20 minute presentation that tells your tale. Avoid “Death by PowerPoint.” •Fill in. Business Network Exchange members sometimes need help filling their seat for missed meetings. Pass the word that you’re available to help out. •Promote to your members. Developing a “Bring

Ask Mr. Marketing

ROB WEINBERG a friend” program for your current members should help introduce like-minded individuals to your group at a very low cost. •Promote to the public. Offering 2-for-1 deals, drawings, and high visibility sales promotions can help you expand your audience at little or no expense. Good marketing can make all the difference for any organization. Commit to these efforts for a year and I’m certain your group will become stronger. With that said, I wish you a week of profitable marketing.

n annual Ramona High School football fundraiser is under way, offering fans an opportunity to “enjoy RHS football at its finest.” Participants will avoid the long lines and hassle of finding a good seat by purchasing Season Football Reserved Seat passes that include gate admission and an assigned seat number, that is “yours for the entire season and is good for all levels of play: varsity, junior varsity and frosh,” said Joan “A.J.” Snelling, who is helping to coordinate the effort. The reserved seats are on the 50-yard line and are identified by their contoured shape in either a red or blue color. Adult passes are $80 per seat and children’s passes for ages 12 and younger are $25 per seat. “I suggest that you go to the stadium if you have never purchased seats before and decide what row and seat or seats would be desirable,” said Snelling. “I will make every effort to accommodate unless 2012 seat holders have renewed the seats you have chosen.” Priority seat selections are due before Aug. 9. Reservations may be made with Snelling at 760-518-3302 or jpsnelling@ gmail.com. She encourages reservations as soon as possible. All 2012 Season Football Reserved Seat holders who wish to retain the same seats

for the 2013 season or to make changes have until July 22 to call or email Snelling or the 2012 seats will be returned to the available seat pool and resold. “This is a football fundraiser and all funds obtained go directly to the football program, with a designated portion of the total funds collected being retained by the Ramona Bulldog Booster Club (RBBC) per an agreement established by Damon Baldwin, varsity head coach, and the membership of RBBC,” noted Snelling. RBBC is a voluntary nonprofit club that supports all athletic and non-athletic clubs and organizations approved by RHS. “Our goal is to increase interest, loyalty, pride and attendance at all school activities as well as help make those programs be as successful as possible,” said Snelling. In previous years, RBBC has provided partial funding for transportation, uniforms, equipment and general grant requests for various RHS athletic and nonathletic student groups, she noted. “This was accomplished with membership support and involvement,” she said. “Your involvement does make a difference. Your help is both needed and appreciated.” Snelling concluded with: “Go, Bulldogs! "See you under Friday Night Lights.”

g

you,” said Carol Ann Eskridge. “She was joy. She had compassion. We’ve lost her laughter.” Suzanne Mollenhauer, the victim’s daughter, talked about the good memories she had with her mother. “You took her away from me and I’m very sad,” she told Thomas. “I know she’s up in heaven today. She’s up there telling me to forgive you. I’m struggling with that. I miss my mom.” One of the victim’s sons, Valjean Eskridge, told the judge his mother befriended Thomas after “she saw you all alone in the lunch room. She said you were like another son to her.” “You killed one of the kindest persons in the world. She was one of God’s angels on earth,” said Valjean Eskridge. “This is not a forgivable sin. You will rot in hell for eternity.” Preckel ordered Thomas to pay $5,000 for funeral and burial expenses, and he was fined $10,224. If Thomas gets a job in prison, a portion of his earnings would go to the restitution and fines. Preckel gave him credit for serving 421 days in jail since he was arrested May 2, 2012, the day after Eskridge’s body was found in her bed. A claw hammer was found nearby, and she had been struck in the head eight times, according to court records. Deputy District Attorney David Williams III said Thomas will have to serve 26 actual years in prison before he could be eligible for parole. Preckel, who served as a prosecutor before he was appointed a judge in his 40-year legal career, said

this case surprised him. “Just when I get to the point where I think I’ve seen it all…along comes Mr. Thomas.” Many hours after the sentencing, the probation report was released and it included interviews with Thomas in which he tried to explain why he killed her and his past killings of birds, cats, dogs and sheep. In a taped interview with sheriff’s detectives, Thomas said he always had a desire to kill, and initially claimed to have never acted on it with a person. Thomas was born in Los Angeles, and was married at age 23 in 1972. His wife divorced him two years later. They had no children. Thomas admitted he tried to strangle his wife with ropes during bondage sessions. No criminal charges were filed and he has no record. He moved to San Diego in 1978. He had another girlfriend for two years, but after they broke up, he sought the services of prostitutes who specialized in bondage and sado-masochistic acts, the report said. Thomas said he practiced strangling prostitutes. He told detectives he stopped seeing prostitutes about 10 to 15 years ago because he “lost interest.” He moved to the Terrace Estates mobile home park in Ramona seven years ago. He named Jean Eskridge as his only friend. He worked as a machinist for 30 years, but lost his job when he turned 60 years old and he retired, he said. Thomas told authorities he experienced some type of “euphoric feeling” upon killing animals, which in-

He said he started killing parakeets at age 8 — for “fun” — and it stopped when he turned 13 years old. But the desire to kill remained within him, he said. “He said it was a more powerful feeling than sex,” stated the report. “He said it was the most powerful feeling a person could have, but it dissipated very quickly. He talked about it being thrilling and talked about how the thrill was like a volcano.” Thomas took Eskridge to church, to Bible studies, and to feed the ducks in a park. They were not romantically linked, but Thomas was allowed to stay overnight in a guest bedroom on April 30, 2012. Thomas told detectives he woke up on May 1 at 6:30 a.m., had coffee, and watched TV. “He decided to kill the victim at that moment, but admitted he had wanted to kill someone for quite some time,” the report said. Thomas told detectives that immediately after killing Eskridge, he went to his home and deleted all his email on his computer that was about bondage and sadomasochistic acts.

Computer experts with the sheriff’s department went through Thomas’ computer and noticed he had repeated searches for how to kill someone. “Death by blow to temple” was one online search. Another was “how long to bleed to death from cut throat,” according to the report. “Death by falling” was another search. Thomas also researched biblical and religious sources as well on the subject of “if I commit suicide, do I go to hell.” The victim’s family members afterward said their focus will always be on Jean Eskridge and not Thomas. “I feel the justice system gave him the maximum amount by law,” said Mollenhauer. “She’s the most positive person you ever met. She’s the epitome of joy,” said Mollenhauer. Jean Eskridge founded Jean’s Dance Studio in Spring Valley in 1948, and Mollenhauer operates it. “She changed people’s lives through dance,” said another relative. At the end of the probation report, someone asked Thomas what his future plans are. “My life is over,” he replied.

to San Diego Gas & Electric’s expected 13 percent rate hike in September. For untreated water, the cost will go from $4.58 per unit to $4.73 per unit. A unit of water is about 748 gallons. The monthly water service fee, based on meter size, will increase 5 percent, from $26.45 to $27.80. RMWD Finance Manager Richard Hannasch noted that San Diego County Water Authority, RMWD’s sole water supplier, had indicated earlier this year that its rate could rise 7 percent, but has since projected a 3.5 percent increase. With Ramona’s 3 percent rate hike, Hannasch said a household using 14 units of water every two months would see a monthly increase of $2.47. For sewer fees, customers of the Santa Maria Wastewater Reclamation Plant will pay $637.22 this year, which is $27.67 more than last year. San Vicente sewer customers will pay $605.30, reflecting an additional $26.28 this year. After listening to a water rate increase protest from one customer, Zenovic

said he did some “quick mental math” and the typical customer would see an increase of about 8 cents per day. “How much does a cup of coffee cost? Just to put it into perspective, the magnitude of the increase — 8 cents a day,” he said. Water rates may be impacted more next year as RMWD funds the relocation of a water main for the county’s San Vicente Road Improvement Project. To move the water main is estimated to cost $5 million. Hannasch said that for the next fiscal year, RMWD will be able to fund the initial $500,000 of debt service for the pipeline relocation. If that amount had to be funded by water rates, that alone would have been a 5 percent increase, he said. “At least for one year there’s not going to be any impact on water ratepayers,” said Hannasch. The half million dollars will come from the $4.7 million of projected property tax revenues, according to the district. Hannasch said the county is estimating that See RATE HIKES, page 13

The finance manager also noted that the district will be able to fund the $1.9 million for the Poway Pump Station project through property tax revenues and without an impact to customers. The project calls for installing a natural gas line to the pump station as a secondary power source for emergency purposes and is hoped to eventually reduce pumping costs.

Noting that RMWD does not have any control over the price of water, he said, “We are trying to cut costs where we can.” Director George Foote said that, even though water use has declined among customers, the cost doesn’t decrease to maintain the system. “Buying less water doesn’t mean we can

Insect threatens citrus trees A dangerous insect has made its way into Ramona and is threatening citrus trees, reports the California Department of Food

and Agriculture. The Asian citrus psyllid feeds on the leaves and stems of citrus trees and can spread a fatal plant disease called Huanglongbing (HLB), also known as citrus greening disease. Since the beginning of the year, there have been three Asian citrus psyllids found in Ramona, and with people spending more time in their backyards this

summer, now is an important time for residents to take actions to protect their backyard citrus trees. HLB puts all citrus trees at risk. There is no cure for HLB and once a tree is infected, it will die. Symptoms of HLB include asymmetrical yellowing of leaves, hard, bitter or misshapen fruit, and excessive fruit drop. Residents are advised to inspect their backyard citrus trees for signs of the disease.

Real estate index shows May increase The University of San Diego Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate’s Index of Leading Economic Indicators released last Thursday shows a 0.6 percent increase in May from the previous month. The uptick was led by sharp gains in the number of residential building permits issued and local stock prices, USD Professor Alan Gin said. “With May’s advance, the outlook for the local economy remains unchanged from recent reports,” Gin said. “Good growth is expected in the

local economy through the end of 2013 and into at least the first part of 2014.” The number of residential building permits issued in May topped 1,000 in a month for the second time this year. Not since 2007 had a single month had that many, he said. Building permit totals so far in 2013 are up 50 percent over last year, according to Gin. The professor said an improved overall economy has put more people to work and earned them greater incomes, which

Gin said local stock prices rose 1.88 percent in May, reflecting an increase in the broader market in May. On the labor front, the number of filers for unemployment insurance rose last month, but the amount of help-wanted advertising also went higher, he said. The index stood at 126.4 in May, its highest mark since December 2007.

SubVets memorial float has Ramona connection By REGINA ELLING

While some parade floats can be built in a day, others take much longer. Ramona saw one of the more intricate floats when the U.S. Submarine Veterans (SubVets) rode the recently completed replica of the USS Los Angeles in the town’s Home Sweet Home Main Street Parade. It was the float’s second run. As a large, albeit miniaturized, black submarine, mounted high above a flatbed trailer, passes in front of thousands of parade goers in the months to come, Ramona will know it has a special connection to the float and what it stands for.

The float, designed by members of one of the three SubVet bases in San Diego, is a moving memorial to the many submarine veterans in the area and beyond. It’s more than just a physical image for Ramona resident Wayne Spani, and everyone involved says it couldn’t have been built without him. That’s partly because Spani, a U.S. Navy veteran, offered use of his airport hangar as a building location for two months. He designed the float and even created special tools to build it. His three sons — Donald, Eric and Greg — as-

sisted the five SubVets in the float’s construction. Spani became involved because he builds models, and his son, Eric, passed his name on to a member of the Sub Float project. “I volunteered to do the design and construction at my airport hangar if the San Diego Base would buy the materials and help provide labor,” said Spani. “Our older float was deteriorating, it had many mechanical issues,” said David Kauppinen, a submarine veteran serving as chairman of the float committee. “The San Diego Base submarine float is a 1/22 scale model of the USS Los Angeles (SSN-688), a nuclear-powered fast attack submarine, and the first of her class,” he said. “The float is 16 feet long and 18 inches in diameter.” Construction of the float involved building a long tapered plywood box with internal support structures for the two external stanchions, the sail on top, and the propeller. “Styrofoam was glued to the outside of the box, and the entire assembly was rotated while cutting to achieve the cylindrical

Before the start of Ramona's 2013 Main Street Parade, members of the hardworking crew that built the submarine float pose with their creation. From left are: Joel Eikam, Wayne Spani, Robert Coates, Jack Addington, Rocky Rockers, Bob Bissonnette, David Kauppinen, Paul Hitchcock, Phil Richeson and Jack Kane. shape with tapered ends,” said Kauppinen. “The submarine was then covered with two fiberglass coats and painted black.” The float is unique in that it can be raised 36 inches by a hydraulic lift for parade viewing and then lowered for highway travel. The sail and propeller can be removed and stored for travel. Up to 10 submarine veterans can be seated on

the float, which includes a diving alarm and stereo for playing Navy music as they travel parade routes. Many of those veterans include members of the SubVets team, including Joel Eikam, Ray Ferbrache, Rocky Rockers and Mert Weltzien. “It was rewarding for me to work with this group,” said Spani. “The model construction was a challenge and required some

special techniques in the scale shaping of the hull, propeller, sail, rudders and planes.” Parades in San Diego are held on a variety of holidays, and whether they are on Memorial Day or not, float committee members are eager to share their love and support for their fellow submariners. “The submarine veterans are entitled to our support, as they proudly served in the security of our country,” said Kauppinen. “The float is important to our organization of sub vets,” said Bob Bissonnette, base Commander from San Diego. “But it’s also important to San Diego and beyond. It’s our tradition and our heritage.” “The float represents the service of the SubVets to our country, and is a memorial to all submariners,” said Spani. “The float allows the people of Ramona to see the ongoing dedication of these veterans. I know the float will be shown in many local parades for years to come.”

Have a safe Fourth, says sheriff

S

Leave fireworks to the professionals

an Diego County Sheriff’s Bomb/Arson Unit reminds residents it’s illegal to possess and use fireworks in the county. It’s also illegal to transport fireworks from elsewhere into San Diego County or to make homemade fireworks or explosives. Under California law, illegal fireworks include sky rockets, bottle rockets, roman candles, aerial shells, firecrackers, and other miscellaneous types that explode, go up in the air, or move about the ground in an uncontrollable fashion. Those convicted could be fined up to $50,000 and sent to prison or jail for up to one year. A study by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission shows 200 people on

average go to the emergency room every day with fireworks-related injuries in the month around the Fourth of July holiday, the sheriff’s department reports. Fireworks can cause burns, lacerations, amputations, and blindness. Sparklers can burn at a temperature hot enough to melt gold. The National Fire Protection Association says more fires are reported on July 4th than any other day of the year. Dry conditions elevate the risk that even small sparks created by fireworks can lead to grass and brush fires, which can spread rapidly. Leave fireworks to the professionals. After the fireworks display, children should never pick up fireworks that may be left over, because they may still be active.

Looking for an old-fashioned July 4th community parade? Head to Pappas Road in San Diego Country Estates Thursday morning for the annual Independence Day Parade. Businesses, families, individuals and organizations walk, ride (in vehicles and on horseback) and bike the parade route. Get there early for the best spots in the shade. Start time: 10 a.m.

July 4th Pet Safety Tips The Fourth of July is one of the most stressful and potentially dangerous times of the year for pets. While you and your family, friends, and neighbors are celebrating the holiday with fireworks, pets are finding these festive activities anything but celebratory. Many pet owners assume that if their pet is not afraid of thunder or other loud noises, they will not be bothered by fireworks. This is not necessarily true. Even pets who normally are not bothered by thunder and other loud noises are often frightened and panicked by the cumulative effects of the fireworks, the excited voices outside, and being left alone inside the house. If pets are left outside and unattended, the noise and raucous often drives them to run away. In fact, the July 4th holiday is a busy time for animal shelters. They report taking in a higher number of dogs that run off during firework festivities. In addition, many police stations log higher volumes of stray dog calls and barking

complaints on July 4th compared to any other day of the year. By planning ahead and taking some common sense precautions, you can help ensure your pet is happy and safe this Fourth of July. •Do not take your pet to fireworks displays. •Do not leave your pet alone in the car. With only hot air to breathe inside a car, your pet can suffer serious health effects, even death, in a few short minutes. Partially opened windows do not provide sufficient air, but they do provide an opportunity for your pet to be stolen. If your pet is most comfortable in the car, however, some pet owners find that driving around with their pet in the car helps to calm their pet. •Keep your pets in

your home in a comfortable and quiet area with the shades drawn. If your pet is crate trained, then their crate is a great choice. Some animals can become destructive when frightened, so be sure that you’ve removed any items that your pet could destroy or that would be harmful to your pet if chewed. Leave a television or radio playing at normal volume to keep your pet company while you’re attending Fourth of July picnics, parades, and other celebrations. •If you know that your pet is seriously distressed by loud noises like thunder, consult with your veterinarian before July 4th for ways to help alleviate the fear and anxiety he or she will experience during fireworks displays. •If your pet seeks comfort in a bath tub, under a bed or other small space, let him or her. If the space is safe and it makes the pet feel more secure, let it be. •Never leave pets outside unattended, even in a fenced yard or on a chain. In their fear, pets who normally wouldn’t leave the yard may escape and become lost, or become entangled in their chain, risking injury or death. •Make sure your pets are wearing identification tags so that if they do become lost, they can be returned promptly. Here’s to you and your pet/s having a happy and safe Independence Day!

Microbreweries, agri-tourism are on supervisors’ radar

San Diego County supervisors directed the planning department to look for ways to reduce restrictions and make it easier for people to start microbreweries and cheese-making operations and to promote agritourism. Department officials said they could return to the board with a plan to begin

the process this winter. Supervisor Dianne Jacob, whose District 2 includes Ramona and who brought the recommendation to the board on June 26, said the region is emerging as a craft-brewing capital with more than 60 microbreweries, and the county should promote agriculture and the local economy.

Jacob said the county has had success in boosting agriculture in a similar area — by streamlining permitting processes to promote boutique wineries — and is working to ease regulations for horse-related businesses. “As a result of those efforts, we have really boosted our winery indus-

try,” Jacob said. “In what I would call a blazing success, we have today, in just a couple of years since the ordinance came into effect, nearly 20 boutique wineries operating in our region.” Eric Larson, director of the San Diego County Farm Bureau, said there is a strong connection between

microbrewing and the local farming community. “People may say, ‘where’s the connection to agriculture?’” Larson said. “But I do want to report to you we have a number of hops growers in San Diego County — driven by the local brewery industry looking for local hops. We’ve also had a number of in-

quiries into our office from folks interested in growing grains in San Diego County to sell to local breweries.” Larson said farmers are interested in supplementing their income through agri-tourism, where farmers charge people to visit their farms to see how they operate, or even work on the farms.

Day camps offer remedy for summer boredom By JESSICA KING School is out for summer and that means day camps are back at the Ramona branch of the Boys & Girls Club. “It’s going to be a lot of fun,” said Site Supervisor Simone McCune. “The staff are all energetic and it’s going to be a good time for everyone.” The club’s annual summertime day camp program kicked off last Thursday, with a “Don’t Stop the Music Days” theme. Every week of the program

is centered on a different theme, with games, arts and crafts and other activities planned around it. Upcoming themes include “Super Hero,” “Star Spangled,” “Olympic Games,” “Pirates,” “Game On,” “Eco Warriors,” “Wet & Wild,” “Our Town,” and “Mad Science.” Day campers also get to go on several field trips throughout the summer. Planned trips range from The Wave Waterpark in Vista to a Padres baseball game in downtown San Diego.

Alex Rubio spends time at the Mini Hoop.

Special on-site activities at the Collier Park-based club slated for this summer include a DJ Dance Party, laser tag and carnival games. Day camps run from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday. Discounts are given for families with two or more children in the program, and scholarships are available for those who qualify. In addition to the weekly cost, a one-time membership fee of $70 is collected, giving the camper yearlong access to the club and its other seasonal activities. “We’re really like the least expensive out there when you compare us to other summer camp programs,” said McCune. “I think I can safely say that because summer camps can be so expensive.” There is no extra charge for the field trips, an afternoon snack is provided and, when possible, lunch is also included. “We try to include as

much as we can with it so kids don’t have to bring anything extra,” said McCune. As the weather heats up, day campers can expect more water-based games to help everyone cool off, according to McCune, who encourages parents to send their kids off with sun block on, hats and an extra set of clothes. Day camps are open to ages 5 to 14, with some minor exceptions. Fouryear-olds who are entering kindergarten in the fall are also invited, along with any outgoing eighth-grad-

ers who are older than 14. In addition to McCune, three staff members guide and supervise the campers throughout the day. The average camper to staff ration is 15:1, said McCune. “As the numbers increase, we just add more staff,” she said. “We don’t ever want to turn anyone away if we can help it.” Though fun is key goal of the day camps, McCune and her staff also take the opportunity to pass along good sportsmanship, teamwork and antibullying messages to the campers.

“I have my own kids in the program,” said McCune. “As a mother, that’s something I think about a lot throughout the program — what do I see, what kind of message is being sent, how can we do something even better.” For club members not participating in the day camps, the clubhouse is open from 1 to 6 p.m. To learn more about the day camps offered through the Boys & Girls Club, visit sdyouth.org/daycamps. aspx, visit the club at 622 E St. or call the Ramona branch at 760-788-7564.

Fitness pros, football players train youths at camp By KAREN BRAINARD Speed, agility, and conditioning — that’s the focus of Ramona Pop Warner’s (RPW) summer boot camp where youths receive training from fitness experts and semi-pro football players. The camp, for boys and girls ages 5 to 14, creates age appropriate workouts for young football players and cheerleaders and attracts children who are not in the Pop Warner program, said John Pecoraro, vice president of the Ramona organization. RPW partnered with Ramona Fitness Center “to

give the kids a better experience,” said Pecoraro. Camp is held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., at RPW’s BullDawg Stadium, 720 Ninth St. Ramona Fitness Center sends personal trainers to work with the kids in the first hour of camp, teaching them the most up-todate methods of speed, agility and conditioning, said Pecoraro. “They tailored it around what kids will be doing during the season,” he noted. RPW also partnered with the San Diego Stallions Development Foot-

ball Team, which brings players and coaches to “really hone their skills,” said Pecoraro. The Stallions, owned by the husband/wife team of Ray Stewart and Mary Blas, is a member of the La Belle Community Football League (LCFL), a competitive minor league football organization. About eight teams participate in the LCFL West, based out of Los Angeles, said Stewart. Players range in age from 18 to 36. At the RPW camp, the Stallions set up different stations and participants rotate, working on agility and conditioning.

Division I schools recruit two Ramona High football players By BILL TAMBURRINO “Ramona High School has two football players who have verbally committed to play Division I programs,” announced coach Damon Baldwin. “Christian Drews has committed to play at the University of Utah in the PAC-12 in 2016 after going on his Mormon Mission. “Matt Lawler has committed to the United States Air Force Academy to play football and attend the

prestigious academy to serve our country,” said Baldwin. Both Drews and Lawler will be seniors at RHS this fall. “Ramona football is very proud of both of these young men. Their commitments only bring more attention to other Bulldogs that are willing to work hard, get good grades and commit themselves to the sport that can provide so many great opportunities to young men after high school. Way to go Matt

and Christian, more on the horizon…stay tuned,” Baldwin said. “I will be trying out as a preferred walk-on after I go on my mission. Right now Utah doesn’t know how many scholarships they will have available in 2016. They want me to enroll and if I do well they will put me on scholarship,” said Drews, whose father, Jeremy, attended and played football at Utah. “From day one, See FOOTBALL on page 31

When campers separate for cheer and football, the young athletes can participate in stations that are specific to field positions, such as wide receiver, running back and linebacker. “They’ll teach them some very, very fundamental things about that station. The intent is to build on skills and have a good foundation,” explained Pecoraro. Attendance at the camp varies and can range from 50 to 70 children and teens. “Camp is the sort of thing that’s meant to be fun, get the kids out of the house,” noted Pecoraro. According to Blas, the Stallions players really enjoy working with the youths. “We get some really See CAMP on page 31

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code.

In compliance with California Civil Code 2923.5(c), the mortgagee, trustee, beneficiary, or authorized agent declares: that it has contacted the borrower(s) to assess their financial situation and to explore options to avoid foreclosure; or that it has made

efforts to contact the borrower(s) to assess their financial situation and to explore options to avoid foreclosure by one or more of the following methods: by telephone, by United States mail; either 1st class or certified; by overnight delivery; by personal delivery; by e-mail; by face to face meeting or the borrower has surrendered the property to the mortgagee, trustee, beneficiary, or authorized agent and that the compliance with Civil Code Section 2923.5 was made at least thirty (30) days prior to the date of this Notice of Sale.

Bulldog volleyball awards Spieker MVP By JOE NAIMAN At the post-season banquet for Ramona High School’s boys volleyball, Senior outside hitter Josh Spieker was voted both the Most Valuable Player and as the Best Attacker. “It was a well-deserved honor,” coach Jeff Klauda said. The banquet was held at South Mission Beach and activities included a beach party, barbecued food, and informal volleyball competition as well as the presentation of awards. The players selected first, second, and third choices for each award with corresponding points given to the recipients for each ballot on which they appeared. Klauda noted that Spieker’s Most Valuable Player attributes included

great feedback,” she said. Pecoraro played with

leadership as well as his offensive skills. “He took ownership and control of the team emotionally,” Klauda said. The coach added that Spieker’s on-court contributions weren’t limited to offense. “He was also one of our best serve-receive players,” Klauda said. The Best Defensive Player award was given to junior Jake McLaughlin, who was primarily the Bulldogs’ libero and also played setter. McLaughlin had been a setter on the Bulldogs’ junior varsity before making his debut as a libero this year. “It was a position that was completely new to him,” Klauda said. Junior middle blocker Levi Vermeulen complemented his 2011 junior varsity Most Improved award with the 2013 var-

sity Most Improved honor. Vermeulen played one game at middle blocker as a freshman. In 2012 he was on the swim team rather than in the volleyball program. This year Vermeulen started at middle blocker when absences deprived the Bulldogs of one of the regular starters. “He was actually able to step in and play and start a few games,” Klauda said. What was originally called the Spirit Award is now the Sean Hogan Award, which is named after a 2008 graduate who was on the team. The criteria includes character as well as spirit, and junior middle blocker Lance Stickney was the 2013 recipient selected by the players. “I can’t think of a better representative from this year’s team than Lance,”

Klauda said. The coaching staff determined that senior outside hitter Josh Plunkett would take home the Bulldog Award. “He was always so coachable,” Klauda said. The coach added that Plunkett maintained a positive attitude regardless of whether he or his team was struggling. “He was the ultimate team player,” Klauda said. “He always put the team above himself.” Four junior varsity awards were also presented. Matt Gregg, a sophomore who did not play volleyball as a freshman, received both the Bulldog Award and Most Improved honors. Sophomore Dylon Hitt was the Best Offensive Player and sophomore Taylor Holas received Best Defensive Player recognition.

Utah is where I wanted to go. After my mission I will enroll and give it my best shot.” The Air Force Academy has always been Lawler’s No. 1 goal. “I visited the academy between my sophomore and junior years and I just returned from football and basketball camps there where I verbally committed to play football and now I have to go through the application process. I am academically qualified and I have to pass their physical. I also have to acquire a congressional nomination but the academy is going to help me

with the process,” Lawler said. He was actually being considered by the football and basketball programs. Lawler did very well at both camps and the football coaches recruited him to commit to play at USAFA. His parents, Jeff and Kelly, both graduated from RHS and were varsity letter recipients. Both Lawler and Drews are two-sport athletes. Lawler also plays basketball for the Dawgs. Drews lettered in baseball as a sophomore but had to sit out last season as he had to rehab from a shoulder operation.

Coach Kevin Long gives instructions to members of his 12U tournament team.

Ramona Girls Softball is a hit among players By BILL TAMBURRINO There is a T-shirt that has a picture of a girl sliding into home plate in a softball game with a catcher fielding a throw and making a tag. The caption for the picture is “A Woman’s Place is at Home!” Some may not see that Tshirt as politically correct, but it gets the point across — girls can play, they play hard and they have fun doing it. About 156 girls, between the ages of 4 and 15, play softball in the Ramona Girls Softball Association (RGSA). There are three separate seasons: regular, between February and May; tournament, from May through July; and winter, from August to November. Each age group fields several teams. Tee Ball has four teams. 8-under (8U), 10U, and 12U each have three teams. The 14U didn’t have enough signups to field a team so the girls were put on 12U teams but were not eli-

gible for tournament play. The fields are in great shape and the complex is good but player numbers are down. The cost to play is $180 for the first player in the family. A discount is offered to more than one player in a family. “We are currently having signups for winter ball and in winter ball we emphasize FUN and fundamentals. It is primarily an instructional program,” said Nicole Lester, a board member and mother of a girl in the program. The RGSA entered four teams in the sectional tournaments: 8U Gold, 10U Gold, 10U Silver, and 12U Gold. For more information about the program and upcoming signups, go to www.ramonagirlssoftball. com.

Ramona Sentinel pros to high schools. The new playoff divisions in the CIF are a joke. It seems that we are trying to make sports a warm and fuzzy feel good experience that allows weak teams to go to the playoffs. Three teams with losing records should not be placed in the elite division playoffs because they were good back in the

try to rationalize why basketball and hockey, both winter sports, continue playing into the late summer or early fall. In the NBA they should just play two minutes and if the score is tied, then they should have to play the rest of the game because at times it seems that they only play hard and coach in the final two minutes. Here are some observations that I have made when I could stay awake during the winter sports playoffs. I must say that the finals in both hockey and basketball were excellent but it is like the heart of an artichoke. It is too much work getting to it to make it worthwhile. Hockey players don’t flop. They don’t have to. The checks and fights are real and vicious. Basketball players are following the lead of world class

Three teams from the same conference should not be moved to other regions so that they can make it to the final four, World Series or whatever. I blame hockey for the extended playoff format in all pro sports that have trickled down from the

My dad took me to the Forum in Inglewood to see a Lakers Game for one of my birthday presents when I was in high school. As it turned out, the Lakers were out of town and the Los Angeles Kings were playing in the House That Jack Built. My dad had never been to a hockey game in person and as the old joke goes, “I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out.” My dad said, “These guys are serious they are really fighting! This is great.” That was an indirect reference to baseball and football “brawls” where the benches empty and one or two go at it and the rest bump into one and other. In watching the basketball playoffs on television when I can’t find a “Golden Girls” marathon or new episode of “Pawn Stars,” I

soccer players and are incorporating drama and fake falls into the playoffs. In the NBA playoffs there were more prat falls than in a “Three Stooges” marathon. Pro wrestling is probably more realistic than some of the acting that goes on in pro basketball and soccer. If one believes that all of the action is real in the NBA, then one has to believe that pro wrestling and roller derby are real too. March madness is the real thing! The college baseball and softball playoffs and College World Series’ are real and great. However, I have one suggestion. The NCAA playoff committees should all take a college level geography class. Duke is not in the West. Maine is not in the West. Minnesota is not in the South. Teams should not be moved three time zones to be patsies or to be able to beat up on patsies. In John Wooden’s days, UCLA had to beat the other teams in the west to move on to the final four. If a region is weak, don’t have so many teams in the playoffs. If a region or
