Wednesday Evening Track Workouts at the San Elijo Middle School

The track workouts are back.

If you have taken some time off, are out of running shape, are training for a spring or summer race (Rock N Roll, Carlsbad 5000, etc.), or you simply want to get a little faster and stronger and run more efficiently with less effort, then join us on Wednesday evening at 6:00 PM at the San Elijo Middle School track.

We will be starting this series very gently, because there is no better way to get injured than doing too much speed work too soon.  For the first few weeks we will focus on drills, strength and proper form, doing some slow intervals and leaving enough time for a nice cool down and stretch.

We welcome all levels and abilities (from 5 to 15 min. milers), and this will be a great chance to run at your own pace without fear of getting dropped or going too slow.  These workouts will be geared toward your individual level of fitness and will be beneficial for all levels of runners.

You can check out the details and schedule here –  These are free workouts.

Mountain lion sighting today in San Elijo Hills

A mountain lion was reported on Doublepeak trail around 2:30pm this afternoon, near the Symphony/Montage vacant development in San Elijo Hills. The mountain lion was reported to be full size and was crossing the paved part of the trail. This location would match sighting last fall

The following safety tips are provided by the California Department of Fish and Game. They are based on studies of mountain behavior and analysis of attacks by mountain lions.

  • Don’t hike alone. Go in groups, with adults supervising children an keep children close to you. Observations of captured mountain lions reveal that the animals seem especially drawn to children. Keep children within your sight at all times.
  • Don’t approach a lion. Most mountain lions will try to avoid a confrontation. Give them a way to escape.
  • Don’t run from a lion. Running stimulates a mountain lion’s instinct to chase. Instead, stand and face the animal. Make eye contact. If you have small children with you, pick them up if possible so that they don’t panic and run. Although it may be awkward, pick them up without bending over or turning away from the lion.
  • Don’t crouch or bend over. A squatting or bending person looks a lot like a four-legged prey animal.
  • Do all you can to appear larger. Raise your arms. Open your jacket if you are wearing one. Throw stones, branches or whatever you can reach without crouching or turning your back. Wave your arms slowly and speak firmly in a loud voice.
  • Fight back if attacked. Some hikers have fought back successfully with sticks, caps, jackets, garden tools and their bare hands. Since a mountain lion usually tries to bite the head or neck, try to remain standing and face the attacking animal. For more information about mountain lions, contact the Department of Fish and Game (DFG), case of emergency call 911 and DFG at 916-445-0045

Hospital districts in North County turf war – From

Hospital districts in North County turf war


Monday, March 22, 2010 at 1:27 a.m.

NORTH COUNTY — North County’s two rival hospital districts are locked in a war over territory.

Palomar Pomerado Health of inland North County has been sued by the smaller Tri-City Healthcare District, accused of encroaching on Tri-City’s coastal area by opening retail clinics in grocery stores.

“This kind of conflict is unprecedented,” said Michael Ott, executive officer of the San Diego Local Agency Formation Commission, which regulates boundaries of special districts. “In my years (in the commission), I’ve never encountered a situation like this.” Palomar Pomerado covers 800 square miles that include much of the cities of Escondido, San Marcos and Poway. Tri-City serves 132 square miles that include Oceanside, Vista and Carlsbad. The state assigned their boundaries, and taxpayers partially support both districts. Palomar’s net revenue for the current fiscal year is $460 million; Tri-City is projecting $330 million. Tri-City is recovering from a series of internal upheavals, which included the board of trustees firing seven executives and physicians questioning the competence of the elected board.

Palomar Pomerado has aggressively built its brand, winning voter approval of a $496 million bond measure to partly fund a $925 million hospital under construction in Escondido. The district also hired former Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson and former local TV anchor Carol LeBeau to be its ambassadors and opened two retail clinics in Albertsons stores in Escondido and Rancho Peñasquitos. Now Palomar Pomerado wants to open clinics in San Elijo Hills in southern San Marcos and in Temecula — outside its boundaries — and one in Oceanside, which is in Tri-City’s service area. Its board approved $200,000 to design and “investigate” the three new clinics in February.
