‘Moms Making Six Figures’ helps moms stay at home while still having careers

Angie, Charlie, Christian and Scotty Gange

Angie Gange had a successful career in mortgage banking. Then the recession hit. The Carmel Valley mother of three began looking for a new job. That’s when a friend introduced her to Moms Making Six Figures, a San Diego-based marketing company that allows women to stay at home and either replace or supplement their income.

San Dieguito Union High School District Superintendent Rick Schmitt’s Monthly Update

On behalf of our Board of Trustees, I want to welcome you and our 12,400-plus students to the 2014-15 academic year. The start of a new school year is always exciting. We have spent the summer eagerly preparing for your student’s return on Aug. 26 and look forward to sharing new learning experiences with each of you. For parents/guardians whose students are entering our schools for the first time, I would like to extend a special heartfelt thank you for the trust you have placed in us.

To your health: 5 questions to ask your new doctor

At some point, nearly everyone will need to choose a new physician, perhaps because of a change in insurance, a move to a new city, or simply a feeling that it is time to make a switch.

Your relationship with your physician is perhaps one of the most important in your life, and you want a provider who is not only highly knowledgeable and experienced, but also understands your needs and communicates effectively.

One Paseo will affect emergency response times

I’m writing in opposition to the current One Paseo proposal and the impacts it will have on our community. Carmel Valley has a large population of retirees and elderly people, like me. I am extremely concerned that One Paseo will increase the response times of emergency service vehicles due to the inevitable gridlock the project will create on our local streets.

This One Paseo — 3 key facts

You can’t lie to the city. But apparently it’s OK to mislead the community if there are additional millions to be made. The final EIR to the city on Kilroy’s proposal found nine environmental impacts, especially regarding traffic and neighborhood character, that even including the proposed mitigation measures — such as two I-5/SR 56 freeway connectors that, best case, won’t be built until 2030 — remain significant. Kilroy’s published response to the community: “We don’t have any unmitigatable impacts.” Want to run that by us again?

An offense to the community and to the General Plan

Why won’t Kilroy propose a smaller mixed-use project that would not overwhelm our streets? Because they would not make enough profit. This is what they say, in more elegant terms, in Appendix B.3 Retail Critical Mass Memo for Reduced Project Alternatives of the Final Environmental Impact Report for One Paseo.

Kilroy goes to great extent to disguise their profit motivation by claiming that the oversize project is in accordance with the “City of Villages” concept adopted by the city of San Diego and embedded in the General Plan. The General Plan is supposed to guide all development.

Rant with Randi: The elephant in the room

The story of Robin Williams’s suicide has made such a huge impact on all of us. First, he was truly one of the most incredible talents of our time, and I don’t just say that because he is no longer with us. His “Aladdin” character is better than any other Disney character I’ve ever seen, mainly because of his outrageous monologues. I equally love his more serious roles, like in “Good Morning Vietnam” and “Dead Poets Society.” Who can forget his famous words, “O Captain, my Captain,” or “Carpe Diem”?

Del Mar council ignores voters’ rights

Recently, notice was given that the Del Mar City Council members would interrupt their August vacation to hold a special meeting Aug. 20 to vote to cancel the Del Mar citizens’ right to vote in November for the election of two councilmen for the next term! And to appoint the two instead!

Mental illness: An inconvenient truth

Recently, the world lost Robin Williams, a great human being and actor. Some of us will remember him as the alien in “Mork and Mindy,” the nanny in “Mrs. Doubtfire,” or Teddy Roosevelt in “A Night at the Museum,” but none of us will forget the sad twinkle in his eye and the joy he brought to audiences everywhere.

With summer in full swing, new banners celebrating Del Mar attractions and activities can be seen all along Camino Del Mar from Ninth to 15th Street.

Created by the Del Mar Village Association, the colorful banners were installed to highlight community events for residents and visitors. Beginning with Summer Solstice and the San Diego County Fair, followed by the summer and fall Del Mar Race season, the Taste and Art Stroll, Del Mar National Horse Jumping Show and the Rotary Club’s Chili & Quackers Challenge in October, and the all-summer-long Del Mar Foundation’s Summer Twilight Concerts at Powerhouse Park, these vibrant banners were designed to remind residents of special events throughout the year and attract visitors to the heart of Del Mar Village.
