Murrieta Upholds Ban On Marijuana Dispensaries

Because of the ruling, Murrieta pursued to pattern its law after Riversides. It placed the revised ban under the citys development code, the place where its land use rules web site are kept. The earlier prohibition had been under business licenses, which was repealed instantaneously with Tuesdays action. Murrieta police Capt. Dennis Vrooman, who helped present the information to the council, urged the members to include a ban on mobile dispensaries. He said that over the past several months there have been a lot of deliveries and crime, including several robberies. Vrooman also said through investigations by the police department that they found that those who have medical marijuana dispensary businesses are not checking medical marijuana cards, identification, and theyre not paying sales tax. “Its flat out drug dealing,” he said. Councilman Alan Long said until medical marijuana is able to be regulated and track who is using it or selling it, it is way beyond what any local agency can mitigate on its own.

Murrieta Illustrates ‘new Era’

Although Murrieta has been owned by his family for 30 years, Dalmau pinpointed the beginning of what he called its new era as 2000, when the arrival of winemaker Maria Vargas set in motion his extensive project to update this historic property and its wines. After his father died suddenly in 1996 at the age of just 47, Dalmau took over. Then aged just 24, he recalled: For the first three years I did nothing, just looking and talking to the market and winemakers. By 1999 however, he began to implement changes in earnest, beginning with the introduction of a new, younger winemaking team. With an average age of just 28 years old, Dalmau highlighted a deliberate contrast with the long history of the estate, saying: I think its important for a winery like this to have young blood inside. Other steps saw the end of Murrietas crianza production and the renaming of its white wine as Capellania, which like the modern Ygay Gran Reserva also now matures for a shorter time in a higher proportion of new oak. Meanwhile, 1998 saw the launch of an entirely new red wine, named Dalmau after its owner. Describing this wine as our concept of a modern style of Rioja, Dalmau told the drinks business: It was going to take many years to update Murrieta and 10 years minimum to update Ygay so I thought lets make a modern style that I could show to the market after three or four years. Controversial with the Rioja authorities for its inclusion of Cabernet Sauvignon althought as Dalmau notes, the 55-year-old vines existed before the DOC Dalmau is produced from a vineyard in the higher part of the Ygay estate. In the beginning it was a wine selection not a grape selection, admitted Dalmau. However, he stressed: Since 2000 it has been a grape selection. With the main changes to the wines now in place, the end of this year will see the completion of an eight-year project to rebuild the castle which gives Castillo Ygay its name.

Lawsuit Seeks To Overturn Murrieta’s Pot Shop Ban

The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports ( ) the suit was filed last week on behalf of the dispensary Compassionate Care Beneficiaries. Murrieta recently approved the ban and joins roughly 200 municipalities in California that prohibit retail pot sales. The suit seeks an order to set aside the city’s decision. It claims the city violated state environmental laws by failing to evaluate the potential impacts of barring dispensaries and forcing residents to drive farther to obtain marijuana. City officials were emboldened by a California Supreme Court decision earlier this year upholding municipal pot shop bans. Think your friends should see this?

Highway 395 Advocates React To Sign-stealing Spree In Rainbow

He is especially proud of a pair of signs in San Diego that mark the start of the route in California and the Balboa Park location where Highway 395 skirted the California Exposition. Casey said he soon hopes to soon have signs placed in San Bernardino, the El Cajon Pass and other northern locations. He estimates that about 120 signs now pinpoint the highways location throughout Southern California. He is also focusing on the Rainbow sign disappearances. Casey and Harmon attribute the thefts to locals who have taken advantage of the rare locations where signs were once mounted atop wooden poles. “People are taking them for their man caves or whatever,” Harmon theorized. He said similar sign thefts have occurred over the years along Route 66, an iconic highway that crisscrosses the Attorney in Murrieta country. Public works crews eventually gave up Attorney in Murrieta replacing signs in some locations on that highway and simply painted sections of the pavement to help motorists follow its course, Harmon said.

Nevada , prior to their new staff, liked me and Utah State has said theyre interested. Solomon wouldnt go too much into detail of what didnt work in Corvallis, other than to say he wasnt happy having to redshirt. They told me when I got there I was going to play and I was keeping up with the starts and then I had a good training camp and then they told me I was going to redshirt, said Solomon. I could have helped and thought I should be playing. Solomon said that Oregon State gave him his release so hes able to play next fall without having to sit out a transfer year.

Citrus Valley Football Falls To Murrieta Mesa, 42-32

But that will be the kind of team we will see in the Citrus Belt League. The third quarter was a disaster for Citrus Valley. And three plays seemed to decide the game for the Blackhawks. First, Citrus Valley was nailed with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that turned a 3rd-and-short situation into a Murrieta Mesa first down near the Citrus Valley goal line. One play later Murrieta Mesa scored to go up 20-13. Next, three plays into the ensuing possession, Lance Douglas attempted a screen pass to Brett Kokesh. The ball was mishandled and hit the ground, officially being ruled a fumble.
