3, 2013 the committee, along with their Valley Center Optimist Club partners, presented a $1,000 check to Melissa and Lindsey
McCray on behalf of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. In August 2013, Melissa and Lindsey learned that their beloved
mother had Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Melissa says, “My twin sister and I took interest in the fundraising opportunities
for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The first event we participated in was extremely successful, largely due to the generous
donation from the Valley Center Stampede Rodeo Committee.”
The Stampede Rodeo committee proudly wears pink
shirts, donated by Armstrong Feed & Supply, to promote cancer awareness. Stampede Rodeo Chair Joyce Holmes said the rodeo
committee was honored to support the McCray sisters in their efforts to fight cancer through the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
(LLS). For more information on LLS, visit their website at www.lls.org.
The Valley Center Stampede Rodeo is now in its twelfth year of sponsoring
quality rodeo entertainment during the Valley Center Western Days festivities each Memorial Day weekend. The Valley Center
Optimist Club has teamed with the VC Stampede Rodeo committee on several occasions; however, the 2014 rodeo season marks the
beginning of their official partnership. Members of both organizations have already begun working diligently on the many tasks
that need to be accomplished before next May to bring the Stampede Rodeo to Valley Center.
the rodeo is bigger and stronger,” says Joyce Holmes, “and the 2014 VC Stampede Rodeo will be no exception. The
rodeo committee thanks everyone for their support!”

Keep Your Pets Safe During
The busy holiday season is upon
us and with all the dashing to and fro comes an increased chance your pet will accidentally escape from your home or yard.
Hundreds of lost animals come in to the County
shelters this time of year. The County Department of Animal Services (DAS) encourages you to keep a close eye on your pet
during these hectic days and to microchip your pet just in case he does get out. DAS will offer microchipping, rabies
vaccinations and dog licenses from noon to 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 8 at the animal care facility at 5480 Gaines Street in San
is the best gift you can give your pet this holiday season," said County Animal Services Director Dawn Danielson. "A
microchip helps reunite lost animals with their owners after escaping from a house or yard and it could save your pet's life!"
DAS will microchip pets
for a one-time fee of $10, which includes the registration. Rabies vaccinations for dogs four months or older and cats three
months or older are $6. Amnesty from late fees is offered to owners who failed to license their dog or allowed their dog's
annual license to lapse.
discount coupons will also be available, $50 for female cats and dogs, and $25 for all males.
Rabies vaccinations and microchipping are available to anyone. Spay/neuter
coupons and licenses are available to residents who live in the department's service area of the unincorporated county or
the contract cities of San Diego, Carlsbad, Encinitas, Solana Beach, Del Mar and Santee.
To protect owners and their pets, dogs must be on a leash and cats
in a carrier while visiting the clinic. For more information, contact DAS at (619) 767-2675 or visit www.sddac.com.
Deputies Honored for Recovering Stolen Cars
Two deputies in Valley Center have distinguished themselves with the recovery of 12 stolen vehicles each between May 2013,
and December 2013. Between May 1, 2013, and November 26, 2013, Deputy Nathan Rowley recovered a total of twelve stolen vehicles.
Three of those vehicles were "rolling stolens", which resulted in the arrest of four suspects.
The value of the recovered vehicles was $24,000. Between May 2, 2013,
and December 4, 2013, Deputy Aaron Boer recovered a total of twelve stolen vehicles. Four of those vehicles were "rolling
stolens", which resulted in the arrest of six suspects. The value of the recovered vehicles was $123,000.00.
Deputies work hard to recover stolen vehicles and
the Sheriff's Department would like to remind the public to take care in preventing theft. Citizens should never leave their
car unlocked, running, or with the keys in the car when unattended, they should pay attention to their surroundings, park
in well-lit areas when possible, utilize alarms, and garage their vehicles when possible.

surprises from Valley Center’s talented youth.”
The VCHS Marching Band will be performing along with hundreds of

"Mr. Scrooge & Mrs. Dickens," an adaptation of Charles Dickens' beloved classic, "A Christmas Carol."
by Marsi Carr
The San Marcos Historical Society will host this year's production of "Mr. Scrooge & Mr. Dickens." The play
is a faithful adaptation of Charles Dickens' beloved holiday classic "A Christmas Carol" with a fascinating new
embellishment: Dickens himself appears onstage to read sections from the work -- primarily passages describing the people
and places of Victorian England, an aspect generally lost in adaptations of "A Christmas Carol." The production
is further enhanced by carolers, dancers, computer-controlled lighting, music, and powerful sound effects. There will also
be a surprise visit by Santa at the end of the show.
"Mr. Scrooge & Mr. Dickens" has been performed annually to sell-out audiences throughout
So Cal. 100% of this year's ticket sales (not just 'proceeds') will benefit the Historical Society.
"Mr. Scrooge & Mr. Dickens" is
a production of Art Animates Life (www.artanimateslife.org or .com), a non-profit group founded by creative professionals
looking for ways to help non-profit organizations struggling in difficult economic times, as-well-as promote live theater
to the general public. Art Animates Life members do not receive monetary compensation for their time, talent, commissions,
Past years' shows have raised
thousands of dollars for disaster relief in San Diego's North County and staged the first ever live theater production for
the Escondido Arts Partnership/Municipal Gallery.
"Mr. Scrooge & Mr. Dickens" has been performed the last several years to sell-out audiences
to benefit several San Diego theater mainstays including Patio Playhouse and POWPac (Poway Performing Arts Company).
The San Marcos Historical Society was established
in 1967 and incorporated in 1968. The Society was originally located on San Marcos Blvd until the end of 2009 when it was
relocated to Heritage Park, nestled within Twin Oaks Valley.
The play will take place in picturesque Connors Hall, which was built in 1940 by the Works Projects Administration.
The adjacent historic Cox and Bidwell houses were built in the late 1800's creating a near perfect ambiance for this adaptation
of "A Christmas Carol."

Tick Numbers on the
The cooler, wetter weather means more ticks in San Diego County, and the Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) wants you
to be aware of the increased possibility of contracting a tick-borne disease.
“It’s important to know that there are several diseases
carried by ticks,” said Wilma Wooten, M.D., County Public Health Officer. “People who work or play in grassy or
brushy areas need to take special care to avoid exposure to ticks.”
Nineteen San Diego County residents were reported to HHSA with
confirmed or probable tick-borne illnesses in 2012. This included fourteen cases of Lyme disease, two cases
of Rocky Mountain spotted fever, two cases of other rickettsial diseases (which include spotted and typhus fever), and one
case of ehrlichiosis, a bacterial disease affecting people and animals. Ticks can also carry tularemia
and cause tick paralysis.
Ticks can be found year-round
in San Diego County, but they greatly increase in numbers between November and May. Over the past two years,
the San Diego County Department of Environmental Health (DEH) found spotted fever group Rickettsia, potentially disease-causing
bacteria, in 10-20 percent of tick batches collected in the county.
Lyme disease is the most commonly reported tick-borne illness
in the United States. It usually starts with a circular red rash at the site of a tick bite. Other symptoms
include fatigue, chills, fever, headache, and muscle and joint aches, and swollen lymph nodes. If not treated, the disease
can spread to other parts of the body, causing Bell’s palsy (loss of muscle tone on either side of the face), severe
headaches, and neck stiffness due to meningitis, as well as joint pain that lasts for months or years.
A tick-borne disease caused by bacteria called
Rickettsia philipii (also known as Rickettsia 364D) may be a newer threat in San Diego County. First reported in Northern
California in 2008, the illness can be carried by the Pacific Coast tick. DEH found
evidence of Rickettsia philipii in tick batches it tested from diverse areas in the county, including Sorrento Valley, Escondido,
and the Cuyamaca Mountains.
A bite from a
tick carrying Rickettsia philipii can cause an area of dead skin that looks like a black scab, along with fever, headache
and fatigue. Although this illness has never been reported in San Diego County, people in other parts of
California have become sick enough to require hospitalization.
Tips to avoid ticks include:
Stay on marked paths, choose wide trails and walk in the center. Avoid grassy or
brushy areas.Wear light-colored
long-sleeved clothing, tuck shirts into pants, and pants into socks or boots.Check clothing, body and companions for ticks frequently. Remove ticks immediately.Apply insect repellent to clothing and footwear.Keep pets on a leash. Treat pets with appropriate
sprays, collars or spot applications labeled for tick control.
VCPUSD Asks Parents To Complete Survey On Funding Plan
Valley Center-Pauma Unified School District is seeking input in developing their Local Control Accountability Plan

VCPUSD Adds "Tip Hotline" To Help Keep Students Safe Online
In response to the recent discovery that students were accessing inappropriate images on their school-issued iPads, VCPUSD
implemented a "Tip Hotline" for parents or other concerned persons to report inappropriate material.
According to Superintendent Lou Obermeyer, "I believe we've
blocked inappropriate sites by adjusting our internet filters. We've added an email address under Tech Tips on the district
and school website as a way for anyone to let us know if they encounter something inappropriate."
