Candidates Forum

Candidates Forum Held at

Escondido Republican Club

 

Eleven candidates showed up for a candidates forum Monday, sponsored by The Escondido Republican Club and held at Cocina del Charro in Escondido.

 

Local political observers generally seemed to agree that the front running candidates are most likely Brian Bilbray, Bill Morrow, Howard Kaloogian and Richard Earnest.  They were joined by other candidates, Alan Uke, Eric Roach, Bill Hauf, Victor Ramirez, Scott Orren, Scott Turner and Delecia Holt.  Of the four apparent front runners, all argue their  experience working at the federal, state, and or city level of government gives them the training, the contacts, the ‘know-how’ of political navigation within legislative assemblies.  (Bilbray has served as a Congressman, Morrow as a state senator, Kaloogian as an Assemblyman and Ernest as a Mayor and Councilmember in Del Mar.)

 

Clearly, the number one issue was Illegal Immigration and what to do about it.  Ethics in government and track records of accomplishments were also featured.

 

A number of the lesser known candidates did not show.  They included Bill Boyer, Milton Gale, and Jeff Newsome.

 

Faster Than a

Speeding Bullet

 

Feet flying, Tyrant, a male rat terrier, competes in a Flyball relay race, which he—and his  three canine teammates—may complete in less than 20 seconds. 

 

 

INXS, a local team, will demonstrate this worldwide pastime at Paws in the Park, the Escondido Humane Society’s annual fund raiser. The community-wide event, which features 1.5 and 2.5 mile walks for pet lovers, with or without a canine friend; breakfast goodies; games for kids, and dozens of vendors displaying pet-related wares, is Sunday, March 26 from 8 a.m. to noon in Escondido’s Kit Carson Park.  Watch INXS demonstrate its incredible strategy and speed at 10 a.m.  For information, call 888-2242 or visit the EHS web www.escondidohumanesociety.org

 

Chamber Launches Successful

5-Minute Networking Program

 

The Escondido Chamber of Commerce opened its board room doors on March 15 to its first-ever  "5 Minute Networking" program, an acclaimed way of networking with other business professionals by describing your business, exchanging business cards, and passing on referrals.

 

Twenty-seven Chamber members attended the inaugural session and the after-the-event reviews were excellent. Said one participant, John Murphy, a home loan specialist with First Horizon Home Loans, "I met several people interested in my services. I have no suggestions on how to improve it. It's a real terrific form and I looking forward to the next one." The light supper, supplied by Samurai Sam's Teriyaki Grill, got high reviews as well.

 

The next "5-Minute Networking" program is set for Wednesday April 19 from 5 pm to 7:00 pm in the Chamber Angelo Damante board room, with the one after that set for May 17th. For more information, call Chamber Events Coordinator Georgia Simon at 745-2125.

Rincon Agrees to Buy Desalinated WAter

 

Add the Rincon del Diablo Municipal Water District to both Valley Center and Carlsbad as agencies that have agreed to buy desalinated ocean water from a plant proposed for Carlsbad.

 

Rincon agreed to buy 4,000 acre-feet of desalinated ocean water a year over 30 years from Poseidon Resources who plan to build $270 million plant, by 2009.

 

The district will pay no more for the water than it would pay the San Diego County Water Authority, according to district officials.

 

Poseidon proposes to desalinate 56,000 acre-feet of ocean water a year at the plant, proposed for the Encina Power Station at Cannon Road and Carlsbad Boulevard.

 

Rincon Municipal Water District services about 28,000 people within 42 square miles that includes portions of Escondido, San Marcos, San Diego and unincorporated San Diego County.

 

Escondido Elementary District Plans Purchase of Building

 

There’s a building near South Auto Park Way that the Escondido Elementary District has its eyes on for administrative offices after its lease is up on its current building.

 

After Dec. 31, 2007, the district will need new quarters unless, of course, they’d be comfortable with absorbing about $350,000 over a two year period.

 

Plans were all set to move to a city-owned property but those plans fell apart when Ralph’s store on East Valley Parkway turned thumbs down on a proposal for Wal-Mart to come into where the present district offices are located.  The city had agreed to give the Escondido Union School District a 4.5-acre parcel at Washington Avenue and Ash Street if the district agreed to move before its lease was up to make room for Wal-Mart. When the Wal-Mart deal fell apart, so did the city’s offer to the District.

 

The building they are looking at is a commercial building on 11.5 acres at Aldergrove Avenue in west Escondido. The property is listed at $13.5 million.

 

The building offers adequate parking and space with 64,000 square foot building.  Presently, the district is renting 62,000 square feet.

 

Citywide Wireless Service for San Marcos?

 

The ears of computer buffs in San Marcos are standing at attention, trying to glean every bit of information available about discussions going on that may lead to the city of San Marcos providing free wireless internet service to San Marcos residents.

 

Some telecommunication providers aren’t too happy about it as it may well mean a cut in their lucrative income stream . . . but computer buffs?  They’re all for it.

 

Actually, the concept is growing rather rapidly nationwide. So much so that Service Providers have begun to get involved as they fight to retain their share of the market.  A number of cities have already started providing wireless Internet technology that allows residents to use the Web with their laptop computers from anywhere in town.

 

The San Marcos City Council will hire a consultant to study how it could provide wireless Internet service throughout San Marcos.

 

More than 300 cities and counties across the country have started to develop wireless networks.  Originally, cities would create the wireless networks to improve communications between public safety officials and employees.

 

San Marcos already has private wireless networks at City Hall and there is wireless access on many college campuses as well as Internet Cafes throughout much of California.

 

There are companies that specialize in building wireless networks and some even provide the network at no charge to cities and their residents.  They then sell advertising that appears on the top of Web Pges on the Internet.

 

To be on the Internet all you would need is a laptop with a wireless card.  The cards are available at a cost of around $50.
