Help for people with mental illness

Dave Roberts

May is Mental Health Month, which the County of San Diego and many of its affiliates have observed through events and screenings.

In 1949, Mental Health America – a Virginia-based advocacy group – launched the observance. This year’s theme is, “Mind Your Health.”

Increasing public recognition and understanding of mental health issues is important. During 17 months in office, I am proud to have advanced a number of mental health reforms. And I am always pleased to support our mental health partners.

Del Mar Heights hosted the second annual Friendship Games on Friday, May 30, bringing together the first grade classes at Del Mar Heights and Del Mar Hills who have been pen pals for the last few months.

In-Lieu Parking Fee program requires a year-round shuttle system

While we are considering a new Del Mar City Hall with a new parking structure for public parking, I thought it would be worthwhile to point out the In-Lieu Parking Fee program does not suggest just a huge parking structure, but does require also a fully operational, year-round shuttle system throughout the commercial zone to Powerhouse/Seagrove Park before more than 50 In-Lieu Fees can be sold.

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

It is hard to believe that we are only one year into our construction bond program. In that short time, we have completed projects that have upgraded classrooms and other facilities at each of our schools.

State bill good for people and pets

Dave Roberts

It has long been proven that people who commit domestic violence are prone to harming their pets, too.

For that reason, the County Board of Supervisors years ago adopted an initiative to keep Animal Control Officers informed concerning households where domestic violence has taken place and there are pets present.

Now new state legislation, Assembly Bill 1511, goes one step further.

What’s at stake on June 3

Gordon Clanton

Voter turnout is always lower in the spring primary than the November general election. Turnout is always lower in non-presidential years. City of San Diego residents are suffering from voter fatigue with two mayoral elections in two years. There are no controversial state ballot measures to stir voters. So look for low turnout on June 3. We’ll be lucky if we have a quorum.
