Rancho Peñasquitos, barely suburban

Anti-migrant white boys, Adam Lambert returns, riparian zone, pedestrian crossing signs, Evergreen Nursery, Lennar Homes

  • Beaner bashers

  • They identify themselves as the border patrol. They demand money. The Mexican stranger drops the grocery bag and sprints into the valley. The teen-age boys shout taunts as the shadow disappears around a curve in a dirt path, heading toward the plywood shack he calls home.

San Diego police have received seven reports of migrant workers being robbed, attacked, or harassed by American teens in the Penasquitos area.
  • Adam Lambert returns to Mt. Carmel High

  • Lambert rode into the stadium in a red convertible, mounted the stage, and sang two songs. The first, Michael Jackson's "Black or White," mucked its way through a poorly set up sound system. The second, Tears for Fears' "Mad World," came through clearly and gave a hint of Lambert's talent.

  • Rancho Peñasquitos man fights with city over concrete

  • On April 12, 2007, I did some concrete work in the backyard of my Rancho Peñasquitos home with the help of my wife, son-in-law, and two close friends. I rented a cement mixer in Poway, which my friend towed home with his truck. I took careful precautions, and when a small amount of cement spilled onto the road, I had tools ready for proper cleanup.

  • Get in the Peñasquitos Creek riparian zone

  • Walk down toward the creek and follow the trail that crosses under Black Mountain Road and continues east toward Mercy Road. This well-marked trail is signed “Trans-County Trail.” For the first quarter of a mile, you will be walking along the side of the stables on your left. Once past the stables, the trail will drop down along the riparian zone of Peñasquitos Creek.

  • Some Rancho Peñasquitos residents who were pleased to see yellow wheelchair ramps put in at the corner of Rife Way and Sparren Avenue were astounded days later when city crews showed up and installed ‘No Pedestrian Crossing’ signs with chains next to the ramps

  • Perpetual war between Evergreen and the city

  • "How did you find out about this?" asked Mark Collins, owner of Evergreen Nursery. I told him I spotted an item on the Rancho Penasquitos planning group agenda about his near 50-acre wholesale nursery going retail.

  • There goes the affordable neighborhood

  • It took three years of planning, hours of contentious debate before the city council, and a last-minute deal with opposition forces that left some tenants feeling blindsided, but Lennar Homes ultimately got approval March 5 to bulldoze some 332 former low-income housing units in Rancho Peñasquitos.
