A 5-0 San Diego County Board of Supervisors vote September 26 approved the advertisement for bid and subsequent award of a construction contract for Phase II of the Mountain Empire Community Center playground while also transferring $128,757 of general fund appropriations into the project.

San Diego County's 2011 crop report was released August 17.
The county's agricultural products had a total value of $1,683,745,072 in 2011, which was a 2.1 percent increase over the 2010 total of $1,648,570,832.
"Our 2011 crop report is saying that we've had an increase in value in agriculture," said Lisa Leondis, the county's Agricultural Commissioner and Sealer of Weights and Measures. "With the pests and the droughts the agricultural producers have faced we've still seen an increase."
