Dianne’s Corner – News and Notes from County Supervisor Dianne Jacob – May 2017

Dianne’s Corner – News and notes from County Supervisor Dianne Jacob

East County, naturally: My fellow county supervisors recently joined me in signing off on plans for the long-awaited Santa Ysabel Nature Center. The 6,000-square-foot attraction is due to start construction next year on the Santa Ysabel Preserve near state routes 78 and 79. The center will be the first of its kind in rural San Diego County and will showcase our beautiful backcountry!

Home sweet home: Your county government is moving to create more affordable housing for seniors. We recently approved spending $4.5 million towards the construction of two housing complexes, including a 62-unit development planned for Ramona. The units will be for low-income seniors 55 and older. There is an incredible need for projects like these because the cost of living continues to go up, along with the number of seniors on fixed incomes. Plus, our senior population is skyrocketing.

Cool Zones: Summer is almost here, along with dangerously high temperatures. In recent years, the hot weather has come earlier and earlier – and forecasters expect 2017 to be hotter than average. Stay ahead of the heat by checking out one of the 115 Cool Zones across the county. They include libraries, community centers and other places where seniors and the disabled can get a break from hot weather.

It’s important to remember that a lot of folks don’t have air-conditioning. And if you are older or disabled, heat-related illnesses are more likely to strike. A Cool Zone can be a life saver. Where are they located? Look for a blue, diamond- shaped window decal with a polar bear on it. Or go to coolzones.org.

Have a great East County day!

CRIME ALERT: Car Break-In on Avenida Marcella

From Eric. O, Via Facebook: At 3:06 am I walked out of my house on Avenida Marcella to 3 guys breaking into a vehicle and then one of the guys approached my truck. Let’s just say I freaked them out. Sheriff contacted. [The car they took off in] was a 2011 Hyundai Sonata (thanks to Dave for looking it up), license plate number 6PMW236. Can someone please catch these punks? Thanks!!

The truck they were breaking into and actually inside of showed no signs of forcible entry. The one guy jumped out of the back seat and went to the car behind it and checked the locks and then headed toward my truck. Basically I’m trying to say is MAKE SURE YOU LOCK YOUR DOORS!! They were looking for the easy ones.

Dianne’s Corner – News and Notes from County Supervisor Dianne Jacob – April 2017

Dianne’s Corner – News and notes from County Supervisor Dianne Jacob

Pioneer path: A long-held dream of re-opening the historic Stowe Trail to the public is finally becoming a reality. MCAS Miramar has agreed to make the scenic path, which skirts the eastern edge of the air base, accessible again. Those wishing to hike or bike along the trail must obtain a permit. For more information, go to the “Resources” section at www.miramar.marines.mil .

I started working with military officials in 2001 to reopen the trail – and with our hiking and biking community before that. A big thank you to Marine Corps Col. Jason Woodworth and the San Diego Mountain Biking Association. San Diego’s earliest pioneers created the Stowe Trail in the 1800s. It’s so important to our history that the White House in 2000 designated it a “Millennium Trail.”

Helping our most vulnerable: I’ve teamed up with Supervisor Kristin Gaspar, Sharp Grossmont Hospital, Grossmont Healthcare District, Alzheimer’s San Diego and others to help seniors who end up in crisis. We’re developing a model for Alzheimer’s patients that start with the call for help and ends with in-home services.

Too often, seniors who suffer from dementia end up in a hospital bed or a jail cell when steering them to services might be the best option.The effort is an outgrowth of The Alzheimer’s Project, the county-led initiative to find a cure and help families struggling with the disease.

Parks and recreation: With my full support, the Board of Supervisors recently moved to tackle the policy and financial hurdles for building and maintaining parks.
Parks keep our communities healthy and whole – and building and maintaining them is one of the county’s core responsibilities. We’re aiming to make our awesome park system even better!
