When eating is an issue, this expert steps in | UTSanDiego.com

LOCAL San Elijo Hills Resident Roxanne Rockwell is in today’s San Diego Union Tribune Talking about helping teens with eating disorders.

Making healthy food choices is something with which many people struggle.

But there are some — especially teens — who have such a difficult time that it can sometimes develop into an eating disorder.

That’s where Roxanne Rockwell steps in.

She’s the Program Manager at UC San Diego’s Adolescent Eating Disorders Treatment and Research Program, a place that helps young people overcome their issues with food and eating.

Rockwell, 34, was raised in Burbank and moved to San Diego in 1997 to attend San Diego State University. She’s spent most of her career researching the illness and working with patients.

The San Elijo Hills resident and mother of two boys explains why eating disorders should be taken seriously.

San Diego County Sheriff’s Department Warning About Warrant

It’s a startling phone call you could receive: “There’s a warrant out for your arrest.” A scam going on right now in many counties hopes that fear will cause you to act without thinking.

The caller is very pushy and poses as an employee of the Sheriff’s Department. To make the pitch very convincing, the scammer will: 
• use the name of an actual Sheriff’s Department employee 
• give the actual telephone number of a Sheriff’s Station or Substation 
• have some of your personal information such as a former address or your date of birth 
• threaten you with jail time or taking away your driver license 
• ask for more personal information 
• ASK FOR MONEY either with a credit, debit or prepaid card 

Impersonating a Sheriff’s Deputy is a violation of state law. REMEMBER, no deputy or employee of the Sheriff’s Department will ever contact members of the public by telephone to demand money or any other form of payment. If you get this type of call, hang up immediately. 

People with outstanding warrants are encouraged to turn themselves in Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at any one of the Sheriff’s Court Facilities http://goo.gl/y035S. For more information on warrants and bail notices, visit http://goo.gl/J5N5g. To check if you have an outstanding warrant in the County of San Diego, visithttp://goo.gl/J5N5g

San Marcos residents invited to take regional disaster preparedness survey

This year, the San Diego region’s 18 city governments, the county and several fire protection and water districts and are working together to update the region’s plan for mitigating the impact of potential disasters. Residents are invited to submit input through an online survey by June 30 by visiting www.surveymonkey.com/s/ZPYGVG6

With only 18 questions, the survey will help gauge residents’ level of disaster preparedness and awareness and help local governments set priorities for addressing potential disasters before they happen. 

“We want to know what natural and manmade hazards you think are the biggest threats where you live, and how prepared you are to deal with them,” said Holly Crawford, San Diego County Office of Emergency Services Director. “We also want your ideas about the most important things government should do to help protect the region.” 

The input will inform the region’s Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan, which is updated every five years and was last published in 2010. The 533-page plan describes the specific vulnerabilities and likely damage in each city and unincorporated communities in the event of various hazards, from earthquakes, to wildfires, to floods. The plan also outlines what each jurisdiction can do to mitigate the harm.

For the first time in this year’s plan update, local governments will address potential harm caused by severe weather and drought due to climate change. 

The region’s updated plan will be reviewed by the state Office of Emergency Services and FEMA in early 2015. Besides the public survey, individual cities and districts may conduct public meetings and other outreach to get your input this year. 

San Diego County’s Hazard Mitigation Plan was one of the first of its kind approved by FEMA in 2004. Local governments must adopt such a plan to qualify for federal hazard mitigation grants.

Open House Sign Policy

The San Elijo Hills Community Association has a very specific sign policy in place regarding Open House signs in the community implemented to keep our community beautiful! The San Elijo Hills Community Association’s governing documents prohibit the display of any non-Association signs in the Common Area.  The intent of the San Elijo Hills Open House Sign Policy is to (1) provide an acceptable means for homeowners to market homes for sale within the community; (2) reduce the number of open house signs used in the community; and (3) discourage the ‘alternative’ means of signage that have been used in the past (sign spinners, signs on cars, etc).

It is your responsibility as the homeowner to notify your agent of the policy prior to putting out their signage. If it does not follow the guidelines, it will be removed and disposed of. The Open House Policy can be found on our website www.sanelijohills.netfor your convenience. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.

Bradley Park plan OK’d, but funding tough | UTSanDiego.com

SAN MARCOS CA — Big plans have been hatched for Bradley Park — new football/soccer fields, another baseball field, improvements to existing fields and lots more parking.

Big plans, but they cost big money, more than $12 million. So now comes the search for funds. And that’s the big unknown.

San Marcos City Council last month approved a master plan for the 24-acre park, which sits along Rancho Santa Fe Road south of Linda Vista Drive. READ MORE via Bradley Park plan OK’d, but funding tough | UTSanDiego.com.
