Queen Califia's Magical Circle Open this Saturday 

05/09/16 Categories: City of Escondido

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - May 9, 2016                                                   

CONTACT: Kristina Owens, 760-839-4519

                                                 

QUEEN CALIFIA’S MAGICAL CIRCLE OPEN THIS SATURDAY

 

Weather permitting, Queen Califia’s Magical Circle in Kit Carson Park (3333 Bear Valley Parkway) will be open to the public this Saturday, May 14, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Queen Califia docents will be on site to answer questions.

Queen Califia's Magical Circle is the only American sculpture garden and the last major international project created by French artist Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002). Inspired by California's mythic, historic, and cultural roots, the garden consists of nine large-scale sculptures, a circular "snake wall" and maze entryway, sculpturally integrated bench seating and native shrubs and trees planted within the interior plaza and along the outer perimeter. The garden bears the brilliant, unique mosaic ornamentation that is an unmistakable part of de Saint Phalle's later work. Complete restoration of the exhibit is underway and will continue for the next several months.

Construction On Southwest Sewer Replacement Project 

04/26/16 Categories: City of Escondido

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CONTACT: Randy Manns, 760-839-6290-x7031

 

Construction on Escondido’s Southwest Sewer Replacement project will begin soon, with completion expected by March 24, 2017. This project consists of replacing three lift stations with a singular gravity pipeline that will convey flow to Lift Station No. 1. Work includes the installation of 8-inch and 12-inch sewer pipelines and several manholes over the three mile work area. The project extends from Sewer Lift Station No.6 south of Felicita Road to Via Rancho Parkway, then continuing southeast to Sewer Lift Station No. 1.

 

Motorists and cyclists should expect heavy delays – due to single lane travel - along Felicita Road (between Hamilton Lane & Via Rancho Parkway) and along Via Rancho Parkway (between Felicita Road & Interstate 15). There will be occasional road closures along these routes to ensure public and construction crew safety. Residents in those areas should anticipate construction noise during the work hours, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Work hours may be extended for the underground contractor and also may include some Saturday work. However, the contractor will make every effort to accommodate residents by keeping their driveways accessible and minimizing construction & environmental impacts. Motorists should observe all warning signs –including No Parking signs - and slow down while driving through the construction zone. Felicita Park should remain open during regularly scheduled times (unless the Park staff suggest otherwise).

Escondido Public Library’s R.E.A.D. Middle Grade Book Club Discusses El Deafo 

04/25/16 Categories: Library

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CONTACT: Kristine Macalalad, 760-839-5458

 

Escondido, CA – Escondido Public Library’s Read, Eat, and Discuss (R.E.A.D.) Middle Grade Book Club for children, ages 9-12, meets on Friday, May 27, 2016, in the Turrentine Room from 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. Author Cece Bell’s award-winning, graphic novel memoir, El Deafo, will be discussed followed by a craft activity related to the book. A limited number of copies of El Deafo will be available for checkout with registration at the Children’s Desk.

Going to school and making new friends can be scary, let alone doing so while learning to live with hearing loss. Bell wittily recounts her childhood, from contracting meningitis at an early age and her subsequent hearing loss, through loneliness and isolation from her classmates, to her triumphant emergence as "El Deafo, Listener for All." At turns honest and bittersweet, empowering and fantastically funny, this 2015 Newbery Honor title is a treat - illuminating and yet, at its core, a tale about something to which we all can relate: the search for friendship despite our differences.

Library programs are free and open to the public. The R.E.A.D. Middle Grade Book Club is generously sponsored by Friends of the Escondido Public Library. For more information on this and other Library programs for children, visit the Library’s website at library.escondido.org or contact Children’s Librarian Kristine Macalalad at 760-839-5458 or kmacalalad@escondido.org.
