Don't forget to vote YES on Prop C. This measure will give Pacific Highlands Ranch (to our East) their own shopping area and parks, which should ease the parking in the local shopping centers and provide more park space for our kids. Prop C (see the League of Women Voters Prop C Page) has no opposition, and everyone seems to think it's a good idea. For more information, visit the Prop. C Supporter's website,

Local Drug Drop Box is Now Permanent

The idea of a Prescription Drug take-back day, where you can anonymously get rid of old drugs around the house, is seen as such a good idea that the local Police have decided to make the drop box permanent. The box is located at the Carmel Valley Police Station on El Camino Real, just inside the back parking lot fence (it looks like a mailbox). Just reach through the fence and drop your unwanted items into the box. Items in the box will be incinerated.
