On Sunday May 17th, Santa Ramona's Sheriff Department hosted a brunch and demonstrated several self defense techniques as part of their "Make the Call" campaign to end sexual violence. They had a very good turn out with many women and several men learning how to protect themselves.
The Sheriff's Department shared the following tips about self defense.
* Get Loud- Don't be afraid to scream when approached by an attacker. Don't just scream though, yell "Help. Call 911."
* Be prepared with your keys and phone in hand when you leave your house, your business, or while out and about.
* Use your keys as a weapon. Put the keys through your fisted hand, with the sharp key part sticking out between your fingers. If someone is coming at you, use a hammer strike, which is fancy way of saying punch them in the throat, nose, or eyes.
* If someone grabs you from behind, use the keys as before, but slam the keys into their thigh or knee. Once the attackers arms give you some slack to pull your arms free,...

The daughter of Governor Jay Stone and one of Santa Ramona's most beloved and prolific celebrities to reside in the city has seen tragedy strike twice in the recent week or so.
Governor Stone remains in hospital in critical condition where he was placed after being the victim of an apparent drive by shooting which is currently an on going investigation by the SRSD.
Liana Stone as she is known to her fans in the music and movie world or Juliana Stone had to contend not only with her father's shooting but also had her own car stolen and later set on fire when a woman, Ms Willow Moore, the sister to Mayoral candidate Manny Moore, stole the vehicle and proceeded to crash it into an empty storefront on Shady Street while under influence of illegal substances.
The car was intentionally set on fire by Ms Moore as was revealed by a reliable and trustworthy source who was on scene at the time: "There was a lighter found at the scene, suspected to be the incendiary device for all the leaking gas o...
"At the end of the day we do not want to shoot anyone. Firing shots at civilians during some of the highly charged incidents we have to attended is not something the Sheriff's ever takes lightly, or something we ever want to do unless its necessary for the protection of members of the public or our personnel." said Undersheriff Brentt of SRSD. "However a large proportion of the time, when we arrive its already to late to avoid that outcome, things have escalated to far and gone beyond the point where other options may be available to us. The purpose of this campaign run in conjunction with the Mayor's office is to make the public aware, that often picking up the phone and dialing 911 at the very beginning of disagreements or situations can, quite bluntly, save lives."
"Whilst that might seem obvious there have been a lot of incidences that could of had very different endings, had someone called us earlier." he added "The Sheriff's Department is not and never will advocate that any membe...
SRGH told us today that one baby was delivered to Dr Allie Brentt during the recent blackout caused by Storm Derecho that made landfall on the coast near SRV on the evening of August 30th.
The idea that blackouts might lead to baby booms has been a subject of contention for a long time. It first came
to prominence in popular culture after the great New York blackout of 1965, which left over 30 million people
without electricity for 13 hours, but what about babies being born during blackouts?
For one little boy who was born at approximately 10.30am on Sunday September the 1st and weighing in at 7lbs, power outages will probably be part of his life living in this area of Southern California, but for his parents and Hospital staff it definitely made things interesting.
EMT's were called to City Hall about a hour earlier when the baby decided he was going to make an appearance in the foyer. Fortunately parts of City Hall had generators going and help was swift to arrive. The hospital was als...
In the light of Ms Angelyna Bennetts article I contacted SRPD to see if they had a response and explanation for what seems to be a sustained amount of interest and harassment of a young bushiness woman from the Southside. I was interested to find out what their opinion of Ms Bennett is and if this sentiment extends to all the community in the Southside or is just isolated on Ms Bennett. I spoke to the Acting Chief and asked him the following questions;
Thank you for agreeing to talk to me Acting Chief, I understand you already put out a statement regarding your reasons for serving your search warrant the way you did on Sunday, so I am not going to dig into that too much. However I was wondering if you can tell me anything about the allegations made against your department by Ms Bennett. Specifically what seems to have been six months of abuse by your officers?
"Yes okay. Regarding the incidences that are stated to have happened in Feb, Mar, April and late May of this year. Its never my...
