El cajon is a nice discrete city during the day but at night the weirdos come out to play. Keep El cajon discrete not wound up like the crack heads in the night. Go El cajon P.D.

When the 52 freeway opened in 2012, did nobody look down the road and think "Hey, we might need to change the 67 south interchange to Interstate 8 to accommodate all this additional traffic."

Get off the freeway, change lanes, underpass, clover leaf, merge, merge again, merge a third time to get back on the freeway.

How many deaths before a flyover is built?

The El Cajon City Council has sent property owners notifications of a proposed change in sewer billing, designed to save the City $100,000 a year. The new billing system will be incorporated with the County of San Diego's property tax collection, due for payment in November and February.

A public hearing will be held at Council Chambers on 9 July 2013 for those that object to the change in assessment. There is no indication given that there is any rate rise associated with the billing method.

Only those property owners who object in writing PRIOR to the meeting will be heard at the meeting.

This family wants to give a big shout out to the area firefighters. We were at Camino Canada last week when fire broke out on the mountain behind VONS. Once again we witnessed a fire across Highway 8 this week. Coming from an area where there is always a debate of which fire department will respond to an unincorporated area we were pleasantly surprised and amazed of the teamwork exhibited by several fire departments that responded to the call. Thank you so much for all you do!
