If the residents and taxpayers of East County are ever to be recipients of adequate and worthwhile fire protection and emergency services, they are going to have to abandon their dependency on government entities and look toward the private sector. Many communities across our great nation and the state of California have made the decision to privatize their fire department services with successful and cost effective results. Perhaps it is time for the citizens of East County to explore alternatives to the failed and very expensive system that is not achieving a desirable and effective return on their investment in fire and emergency services.

People on Twitter and elsewhere expressed hope and excitement about how Ragland’s daughter, a former TV actress, feminist and United Nations humanitarian, may help bring this dynasty into a new era.
After the 10 a.m, dancing together students file out, the 10:30 tiny tots ballet class runs in, Although the 10 2- and 3-year-old girls may not be performing Swan Lake any time soon, they certainly looked the part in their colorful tutus and tights, Brady led the group for ballet slippers through routines to “I’m a Little Teapot” and “The Hokey Pokey,” followed by moves across the floor like tippy-toe walks and chasses, The girls also practiced bunny hops across a row of shapes, which was a popular segment of the class even with the children who were too shy to take part in the earlier activities..

I love teaching younger dancers what I have learned and watching them come into their own.”.
