  • A Feeling of Hope in Rancho Bernardo

  • How do I even begin to tell you about the incredible turnaround my neighborhood has taken? I will start here. Hi, my name is Mychal McMahon. I am a single mom living with my mom in an apartment complex in 4s Ranch near the Rancho Bernardo area. We were the very first people to move into these low-income apartments about five years ago. We live in a rich community and many of the residents here are the poorer part of 4s Ranch. I noticed, as families started moving in, that there were many single moms like me.

  • Olive fruit fly invades San Diego orchards

  • At Bernardo Winery, one of the oldest olive oil producers in California, oil flow has come to a standstill. While the Rancho Bernardo company has historically produced 300 to 400 gallons of olive oil per year from its 1200 trees, the olive fruit fly, an invasive pest that’s native to Mediterranean Europe and north Africa, has already destroyed this fall’s crop, says company director Rossi Rizzo.

  • Drought on display

  • Bernardo Mountain, with an elevation of 1150 feet, rises steeply from the north shore of Lake Hodges, southwest of Escondido. It offers a relatively short, vigorous hike to the peak for dramatic views of this rapidly expanding part of North County as well as Lake Hodges.

  • Error alleged in Rancho Bernardo High baseball

  • A Rancho Bernardo High School student is suing the school district and the school's legendary baseball coach for retaliating against him after he complained that a freshman coach sucker-punched him in the back of the head. The boy filed a lawsuit against the Poway Unified School District, Rancho Bernardo High School's former varsity coach (Sam Blalock), the school's principal, and former freshman coach Dan Kelly.

  • Late night rhymes at Tony Pepperoni

  • It was going on 10 pm, and I found myself hungry in the thick of North County suburbia. Which is to say, my expectations were not high. A precursory iPhone scan for still open nearby restaurants confirmed my options were few, mostly familiar sounding national chains that inspire little confidence. One name did stand out as kinda funny, and amid these slim pickings that would prove enough. It’s tough to ruin pizza, I reasoned, as I charted a course for Tony Pepperoni Pizzeria.
