June 30, 2010 Little League Seeks Board Members by Curt Nelson, League Information Officer The Julian News 3 While the 2010 Julian Youth Baseball, Inc. (JYB) Little League season has successfully wrapped up, the Board continues to plan and work on an even better season next year. Several Board positions are open, and interested parents or community members are encouraged to nominate themselves. JYB asks that Board members serve for 2 years, and to stagger those two year commitments, to provide continuity from year to year. Several existing Board members have agreed to stay on for another year, but a couple existing Board members completed their two-year commitment and are now making room for others to step-up. Many of the open positions were not filled for the 2010 season. Completiffg a full Board would help immensely in 2011. The open positions are: The Vice President assists the President, presides over the Board in the absence of the President, is a ex-officio member of all committees, and carries WINg & Monday -- Friday 8 Am - 6 pal Sstutd8m-6pmm Sunday 98m-5pm D]g00 DAY 760 765 3200 .. 2117 Main Street POPE TREE SERVICE II All Your Tree Service Needs, Commercial Oak and Pine our Specialty CA.

Several drug abuse prevention and treatment providers showed support Tuesday as the San Diego County Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to implement an ordinance to allow countywide placement of receptacles to collect prescription drugs for safe disposal. The ordinance, brought forward by Chairwoman Pam Slater-Price and Sheriff Bill Gore, aims to reduce the abuse of prescription drugs obtained from the home by offering safe places to surrender the medications -"no questions asked." "Thank you for your continued support in reducing the abuse of prescription drugs," said Dana Stevens of Communities Against Substance Abuse, who collected more than 250 signatures in support of the county ordinance. The need for the program became evident to Slater-Price and Gore after the Oxy Task Force of San Diego County hosted two highly-successful countywide prescription drug'Take Back Days. Sheriff's officials collected nearly 2,900 pounds of prescription drugs from the public, i "Those drugs could have easily fallen into the wrong hands and led to abuse, addiction or worse - death," Chairwoman Slater-Price said. "One thing became incredibly clear: a permanent, safe solution to dispose of prescription drugs must be found for San Diego County." Sheriff's officials will regularly collect the medications for safe destruction. The drop boxes are being put out for a public bid. Officials hope to have them installed by fall. The cost of the boxes will be paid for by the Sheriff's budget and Slater-Price's Neighborhood Reinvestment Program grants. The 22 locations for the drop boxes include: Alpine Station, Boulevard/ Jacumba Office, Borrego Springs Office, Campo/ Tecate Substation, Encinitas Station, Fallbrook Substation, George Bailey Detention Facility, Imperial Beach Station, John F. Duffy Administration Center, Julian Substation, Las Colinas Detention Facility, Lemon Grove Station, Pine Valley Substation, Poway Station, Ranchita/Warner Springs Substation, Ramona Substation, San Diego Central Jail, San Marcos Station, Santee Station, South Bay Detention Facility, Valley Center/Pauma Substation, and Vista Station/Vista Detention Facility. Board Of Supervisors Approve Medical Pot Shops San Diego County Board of Supervisors Tuesday, June 22, approved on a 4 to 1 vote a new policy limiting medical marijuana dispensaries to 16 areas in the unincorporated areas of the county. One of the approved areas is Julian. Under the regulations, medical marijuana dispensaries must be located 1,000 feet from outnumbered supporters at the morning meeting. Supervisor Ron Roberts called some of the provisions too tough. Critics are saying the policy is just too restrictive and the sites are not even practical. Those in favor say it's about time the county gets in line with state law which was passed 14 years ago. As Supervisor Dianne Jacob noted, "1 didn't hear a lot of unqualified support for what's before us today." The collectives must obtain permits, be located on industrial- zoned land, and keep records for on-site inspection by sheriff's deputies. They must also install alarms and surveillance systems, maintain lighting and use equipment to prevent break- ins. On July 6th the County plans to start offering a Medical Marijuana Identification Card (MMIC). Application forms can be obtained by mail, in person or online in English and Spanish. A number of speakers from anti-drug organizations asked the supervisors to ban the collectives outright, but lawyers with the county counsel's office advised them that they believe the courts will rule against jurisdictions that prohibit them. Jacob noted that people on both sides of the medical marijuana debate spoke out against the regulations, but said "what the staff brought before us is the best we can do." homes, churches, schools, parks and other dispensaries. The sheriff's department will be in charge of granting permits for the facilities and make sure their operators follow a strict range of rules. Three of the 16 sites are in Lakeside and three more are in Ramona. Two each are in San Dieguito, Alpine and El Cajon. The rest are in Borrego, Campo, Julian and Spring Valley. It's possible that some locations could hold multiple dispensaries if each complied with the distance requirements. Critics said that the policy is too restrictive, that the sites are not practical, and that the regulations amount to an invasion of each patient's privacy.
