Well, I remember way back in the 1970's kids talking about F troop the oldest Mexican gang in theRead More county and some fighting at the strawberry festival. Gangs are bigger today of course in those days only knives mainly.

I think Westminster High use to have animals a small 4 h club and Mission Viejo High School.

Whaaaat? The last non-urbanized community event in the County? I don't think so! How about theRead More annual Rancho Mission Viejo Rodeo (Aug. 23-24, 2014) in the last working cattle ranch and farm in the county? The Rancho Mission Viejo Rodeo is the richest two-day rodeo in America! This is where the great American West comes alive every year as the nation's top cowboys compete for their share of a huge purse and their place at the Nationals! What about OceanFest? What about Silverado Days in the canyons? What about all the farmers markets and harvest festivals. Goodness!

i wonder when this is going to turn into a debate about whether or not this is Obamas fault?

What is wrong with everybody? Do you ever realize how crazy you sound? You are responding to anRead More article to help keep our kids safe, which I clicked on because I have 2 kids, not because I wanted to start an anti-government militia

I had posted a comment but it was deleted??? I guess because I was sticking to the point of theRead More article: Kids should also be told NOT to cook without an adult present. Fires can start very easily, even with a toaster...I should know. I started such when I was about 5.
Drownings are up this year in Orange County, a fire chief told the San Juan Capistrano City Council this week. Patch file photo.

Actually, an emergency room doctor has already emailed me to say the OCFA and Patch got it right.Read More Whatever the plain meaning is to us, the medical community believes that "The term 'near-drowning' is no longer appropriate and instead all submersions that lead to respiratory compromise are termed drownings. We then qualify the drowning as fatal or non-fatal." The doctor said he speaks nationally on the issue. And yes, he's legit.

I thought the headline was pretty clear - 46 drownings, 22 of them fatal. More important than theRead More definition of the word drown, is the fact that we have lost 22 people so far this year to a completely preventable death. We can and should find ways to reduce this number.

Back in the '70's, when I was a teenager in Western Massachusetts, I worked on tobacco farms for twoRead More summers for just a bit more than $1.00 per hour. I had to get up at about 4:30 am to get ready and catch a bus. We worked from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm out in the fields under "tents" (that caused the temperature to be about 20 degrees higher than the air temp) for part of the summer, then had some relief by working in the barns for the remainder of the summer (for the girls - guys stayed in the fields all summer). It was grueling work and we would be covered in sticky dirt at the end of each day. It taught a great work ethic, though, not seen often today.

Looks like these pics are from right out in front of strands/salt creek? How cool!
Penny Arévalo August 28, 2012 at 03:28 pm
Yep. Capt. Dave emails us the photo and video. I agree. Very cool!

What a great, fun event. San Juan Capistrano citizens should be proud of San Juan Summer Nites andRead More the pleasure that it brings to our community!

Fantastic Idea,Times are changing in San Juan Capistrano,I see more smiles everyday...
Eric Bergstrom August 4, 2012 at 12:43 pm
Great idea, Dusty. Maybe we can create a mascot. Like Alfred E. Newman with a cowboy hat and weRead More can dub him...Seymour Smyles.

FYI - The San Juan Chamber of Commerce deserves most of the credit for coordinating this week-longRead More event, not the city. Chamber director Mark Bodenhammer and the current cast of Board Members and Ambassadores have brought the chamber back to a point equal to it's zenith. More great things to come. Every event listed above with a bullet point sprung from the support of the Chamber.

Sounds fun. Too bad they don't include wine or non-alcoholic beverages for the people who don'tRead More drink beer.
Stephanie Frisch July 22, 2012 at 06:16 pm
The event is called, "Micro-brews by the Mission". It's intent is to showcase microbrewsRead More and the participating venues to help promote business and visibility. You can enjoy wine and non-alcoholic drinks at these locations during this event as well. That's what I do since I don't really drink beer either. It's still a fun event whether or not you drink the Micro-brews and a great time to enjoy the company of friends.
