|Three of the four winners posed for a group photo... with a little help from dad. ☺|
|Rafael Hermosillo speaking to all the artists.|
|The artists as they were being polled about next year's Halloween event.|
|I heard that this artist has won, with different blind judges, four years in a row.|
|This pumpkin was painted to be a hedgehog (not Sonic, mind you) so it was purposefully on its side.|
|This blue pumpkin was chosen to receive the staff's choice award.|
|Jack Skellington was also a favorite.|
|The first booth that most trick or treaters went to was the Wildomar city booth. In this photo you see councilmember Ben Benoit offering three different types of m&m's. For some, it was an easy choice. For others, it was like a trick question on a pop quiz. ☺|
|There were plenty more upside down m's throughout the park, but getting us all together for a photo was impossible. Left to right: Joseph Morabito, Gary Nordquist, Bridgette Moore and Ben Benoit.|
|The top photo was taken just outside the city boot, and you can see that it stretched all the way to the Faith Bible Church ice cream truck. The bottom image shows the crowd size around 7:15pm.|
|Two of the three bounce houses that were busy all evening long.|
The view from the south end of the parking lot.
|Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez and staffers had a booth. They dressed as Wizard of Oz characters.|
|Relic VW, on Mission Trail, was in the park handing out candy. Their haunted VW Bus was pretty cool.|
|Living Hope Lutheran Church put together another spectacular booth. In years past they had group costumes from "Where's Waldo", Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, The Wizard of Oz and in 2019, The Sandlot.|
|A look at the Cops For Kids and City of Wildomar booths at about 7:30pm.|
|If you'd like to attend, you don't really have to dress in your "50's best", but those of us on the council probably have to (gulp, lol). You also can skip the VIP portion and just come for the Mayor's presentation.|
|The current map of LoCC divisions.|
This is an easy question to answer.First, what kind of stupid question is this? If you have ever asked such a question in your day to day life, please don't seek any position in which people are supposed to put their trust in you... and that includes dog catcher. Second, well, there really is no second... other than you'll be looking at a ton of trouble if you think such things don't apply to you.
|The arrow points to where I was during a new council member training course.|
|Rearing and ready to go!|
|The comparative costs of homeless people on communities.|
|Some people can accumulate two feet worth of those badge add-ons. You can tell by my hair that I was ready to return to the friendly confines of Wildomar by midday Friday.|
During the past year, Lake Elsinore Sheriff Station deputies investigated several complaints of theft stemming from an individual offering to sell a vehicle. The suspect would meet the victims at a location and take their cash offer, through force or fear, without turning over the vehicle.
The Lake Elsinore Station Detective Bureau identified additional victims during the investigation from the cities of Moreno Valley, Perris, Riverside, and San Diego, along with the suspect, Jarbi Recinos , a 23-year-old resident of Eastvale. On Thursday, October 3, 2019, investigators located Recinos in the area of Clinton Keith Road and Interstate 15 in the city of Wildomar. Recinos was arrested without incident and booked at the Cois Byrd Detention Center for robbery.
The investigation is on-going and anyone with further information on this case is encouraged to contact Investigator Esteban Carranza from the Lake Elsinore Sheriff’s Station by calling (951) 245-3300.

|I see a GPIP as asking if you can ask, because if you were actually asking in the first place, you'd go directly with the GPA (General Plan Amendment).|
|The key concern from the council was the traffic impacts.|

|Might as well mark your calendars now... I have. ☺|
