Participants will receive community service hours for attending meetings and project participation. These community service hours will be beneficial when applying for employment or admission to college or university.

Temporary Shut Off of Water at Vineyard Golf Course 

08/04/16 Categories: City of Escondido

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CONTACT: Christopher McKinney, 619-756-2570

On Thursday, August 4, maintenance workers of the Vineyard Golf Course in Escondido attempted repairs to the course’s drinking water system.  After the work was completed, Vineyard staff were concerned that the drinking water and recycled water systems had been accidentally cross connected during the repairs.  The City of Escondido was notified and City staff confirmed the cross connection after investigation.  The water supply to the course was immediately shut off.  The cross connection existed for less than two hours.

 

City staff immediately alerted the San Diego County Department of Public Heath, repaired the water system to remove the cross connection, and began flushing the system with drinking water.  The water supply to the course will remain off to allow time for thorough water quality testing.  Portable toilets and bottled water have been brought on site, so The Vineyard Golf Course will remain open for golf during the water outage.

 

Recycled water is used at the Vineyard Golf Course for irrigation.  It is safe for limited body contact but is not safe for drinking or swimming.

2nd Tuesday Book Club Discusses There’s Something I Want You to Do by Charles Baxter 

07/25/16 Categories: Library

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CONTACT: Monica Barrette, 760-839-4836

Escondido, CA - Escondido Public Library invites adult readers to join the 2nd Tuesday Book Club meeting on August 9, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. in the Turrentine Room. This month’s selection is There’s Something I Want You to Do by Charles Baxter. Copies of the book are available for check out and may be reserved in the Library catalog at library.escondido.org.

There’s something I want you to do...” What appears to be a simple request turns increasingly intricate as Charles Baxter crafts ten interrelated stories around virtues (bravery, chastity, loyalty) and pits them against vices (lust, vanity, sloth), with each tale centered around this very sentence. Stories of love affairs, murders, betrayals, and explorations of all walks of life along the mighty Mississippi River make this an engaging read for every interest. Join the discussion as we explore the question of how far one would go to satisfy someone’s deceptively harmless request. 

The 2nd Tuesday Book Club will continue on September 13, 2016 with The Martian by Andy Weir.

Library programs are generously sponsored by Friends of the Escondido Public Library and are free to the public. Escondido Public Library is located at 239 South Kalmia Street in downtown Escondido.  For more information about the 2nd Tuesday Book Club visit library.escondido.org or contact Adult Services Librarian Monica Barrette at 760-839-4836.
