Chicken manure - closer to town than Ramona

After I discovered the $10/pick-up load ranch in Ramona (see Ramona Holler, April 15), friends in La Mesa said they could get pick-up load for $20 in Lakeside - closer to L.M.

Hilliker's Egg Ranch, 11329 El Nopal Rd. in Lakeside is their preferred supplier.

Just curious how fellow Lakeside residents feel about the new Starbucks that opened on Wintergardens? There's no doubt that Lakeside could use a facelift, but is infusing it w/ businesses such as Starbucks the way to go?

Help me out here. Are the laws about living in a motorhome or trailer parked on the street different in the County from the City? Or just in Lakeside. They park across from my apartment bldg. on Vine St. for weeks, not days. Dealing drugs, drinking, fighting, and the most disgusting?? letting their "blackwater" (sewage) drain onto the street. Call the Sheriff you say? Been there..done that. The whole complex has. Anyone have another idea?
