Rancho Bernardo has great resources
Very interestingly, one thing that came through loud and clear at the Plan- it-Yourself Seminar last week: Rancho Bernardo has a wealth of resources. One just needs to know what they are and how to access them. In other words, we can find out anything if we only know where.
One important resource is the San Diego Community Service Center located in Rancho Bernardo on the 2nd floor of the Library 538-8070. Start there for all City of San Diego telephone numbers - from noise abatement, potholes, dead animal removal, street light replacement, mediation, all city permits, and about 500 other numbers. As you know, Manager Gaye Kuyper gave us a talk on all the services at the Community Service Center, including their new addition of passport services - new and renewals. Call her if you have questions.
Equally important to some of our attendees: all safety and security questions can be directed to our own Police Storefront (also in the library, 2nd floor.) Officer Paul Lennon will answer or re-direct all SDPD questions. However, he advises that all crime calls go to9-1-1 if itís an emergency or a crime in progress; all other calls go to (858) 484-3154.
If you have frequent problems with misdelivered or never received mail, and of course, any problem at all regarding mail fraud, call David G. Fast, postal inspector with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service in San Diego. (619) 531-8203; Fax (619) 233-9623.
If you have annoying phone calls or repeated hang-ups, call and report to the SDPD to get a case number. Then call the phone company. They can then legally put a trap on your line.
At the Scam Jam 2000 last Saturday, District Attorney Paul Pfingst made a plea to all 2000 attendees: if you have any suspicions at all that an elderly neighbor, friend or relative is being financially or physically abused by any caregiver, including a relative, call his office to report this. (619) 531-3544. Your call may save a life.
www.rbernardo.comcan answer hundreds of questions if you are on the Internet. If you are not, the library has 4 computers which are. Itís easy to log on and go from there. Any librarian or helper can do it for you. This website has now over 100 pages and links - local news, crime , fire, and RSVP stats, RB organizations , senior interests, entertainment, government and Councils, health information and local hospitals, schools, houses of worship, community centers , maps, and much more. Become familiar with this source of information.
Regarding the need for more block captains, or to find out who your captain is, call theNeighborhood Watch office at (858) 538-8148. In this way, you can also find out who your district coordinator is, as well, and discuss any problems together. Your district coordinator has monthly detailed crime statistics; also your Community Council representative. You can call the same number for questions about Emergency Preparedness and find out who is the preparedness coordinator in your district. More next week.
