What’s Inside... Redistricting Updates

Rancho Penasquitos


This issue takes us through another two months of covering life in our great community. There is so much happening; it’s been tough to cram it all into these 24 pages. It is almost like we need more space (hint: foreshadowing alert).

Besides the quality information you have come to expect from the pages of Mira Mesa Living, we are trying some new things in this issue as far as our design and layout. We hope you like some of the changes which are an attempt to spruce things up a bit. Please let us know what you think, whether positive or negative. As always, there are so many ways to reach us.

Life in Mira Mesa is good, and it’s only going to get better as the spring turns into summer. Surely, you agree. We will see you on the streets living in Mira Mesa.

Spring is arguably our favorite time of year. After a soggy March, we are seeing more flowers in bloom. The weather is warming up. We can smell delicious food on our neighbors’ grills. Our children are having more fun outdoors later into the day because of the extended daylight hours. In this issue we focus on a lot of things that make us happy. That includes athletics at every level, expanding our cultural awareness and watching kids use MML as a learning resource. Basically, it all comes down to people in our community doing some amazing things like countless years of volunteer work or overcoming deadly obstacles to become a mentor for people raising money for cancer research. We also can’t forget to mention the hard work put in by high school and college students who graduate in May and June. That is no easy task and they need to be commended.
