@timo, too many are not qualified. You have to learn to count first.

I wonder how many Walmart employees came out to clean up their future site.
Becky Honkington June 26, 2013 at 10:39 am
Huh? What does Walmart have to do with this article?

I like WalMart, usually the best bang for your buck there. I hope they put a Super center there.Read More It'll be, adios Staters for me.

I'm sure God would give you a pass for such a good cause.

Our code enforcement officers spend a lot of time eating lunch and BS'ing with each other instead ofRead More driving around and citing the people who need it.

I'm not wrong, and no amount of bullying is going to get me to say I was. You are a jerk, plain andRead More simple. It is obvious to more than one person on this thread what kind of person you are. I don't have to prove myself to you and I don't really care what someone like you thinks but I will NEVER just take crap. I will always stand up for myself and what is right. You are seriously lacking in the compassion department. Defending someone that does not deserve it on this thread does not make you a caring person. Dropping off the shoes and not worrying about whether or not the victims wears Prada would have been a better choice. I am so done arguing with someone who does not matter. You go ahead and you keep on judging me and keep on thinking you know what I am all about but you don't know the first thing about me. However, you have made it abundantly clear what kind of person you are and you are definitely not a person I would ever wish to know. Have a great day, sweetheart!
Teller of Truth August 3, 2012 at 07:09 pm
I said I wasn't even replying to you and was too tired to rewrite the whole thing just to apeaseRead More you. You were wrong. No amount of name callin in the world will exonerate you. If you're gonna stand up great! Just make sure that you're standing up for the truth first. No body likes someone who twists the truth to make their own distorted point. Get real.
Teller of Truth August 3, 2012 at 07:10 pm
Constant, you are a dude right?
John Larsen June 5, 2012 at 06:23 pm
This is such a great and essential program and organization. A wonderful way to assit ourRead More professional emergency responders and compassionately give back to the community. My hat's off to Gina and all the good people involved with TIP!

Great job T.I.P.!!!

Yes and that is for charity. Don't know the normal cost, but it isn't too much more I'm sure.
Diana May 1, 2012 at 10:52 pm
I love that car in the picture but $400.00 for four people, that's $100.00 a piece seems a bitRead More steep, the last time we ate at Chili's my man got food poisoning and we haven't gone back.
Ken Mayes May 2, 2012 at 02:53 am
Normal rate at Summerly for a weekend round of golf is between $50 to $65 so for a party of 4 that'sRead More $200 to $260 what's a little more for charity. As for Chili's, just another chain joint, wished it was Annie's or Taco's Elsinore.

OH THANK YOU !!! :):) I wish I had known about this... There is too much trash on the trails.. whatRead More is wrong with people ?? TY so much for doing this. each time I am out there I manage to pick up empty water bottles and bar wrappers ;(

Butterfield Trails will be doing at least two additional spring/summer clean-ups on the FencelineRead More Trail and will welcome volunteers to help out and get the trail in tip top shape for the late spring and summer usage. We will be posting the event flyers on our website and at places around the community. We hope you and others in the community will join us. Local High School students who join in the work will be able to earn their needed community service credits too.
Martha L. Bridges October 6, 2011 at 10:25 am
Butterfield Trails is happy to be working to protect and promote our local trail systems inRead More conjunction with the County's new Adopt-a-Trail program. I encourage families and individuals to get out and enjoy these wonderful resources. The trails allow for healthy, low cost activities. Get informed and get out and utilize them often. You can find additional information about the trails, safety suggestions, links to maps and details about upcoming meetings and more special events on our website at: www.ButterfieldTrails.com

Jessi what you are doing is very inspiring and I am sure alot of kids will have smiles on theirRead More faces because of your efforts. Jessi YOU ROCK. Keep up the great work.

Jessi... I have been keepig up with you through your Mom and grandmother since you were born! IRead More know that you are beautiful inside, and out...and that you are an awesome person, and an awsome Christian! God bless you for thinking of others. I wish you tremendous success on your endeavor!

It is an "honor and a privilege" to have the services of the TIP organization and theseRead More special angel volunteers as a part our community. Many thanks to each one of you!
Gabrielle Gillette-Totton September 13, 2011 at 02:50 pm
I concur John - TIP volunteers are incredible people doing good things every day. Making aRead More difference in the lives of individuals as well as the community as a whole. Trauma Intervention Programs are an asset to any community they bless with their presence. Nice work Gina - you're doing a great job of managing the program in your area.

Great job Gina!

Thanks Toni McAllister for great coverage of this event and being so friendly to everyone that day.Read More We were all very fortunate to have the Storm Stadium host our annual event. What a spectacular way to start off with SKYDIVE ELSINORE to get all the volunteers motivated. The event was a huge success because of the Day of Caring committee, volunteers, community, joint effort of all the city councils support and sponsors. Thank you to all the vendors and the LA LAKER GIRLS who stayed through the hottest part of the day. Everyone played their part to make an extraordinary difference in our local communities. That is how we LIVE UNITED! Linda V. Newman/Director Southwest Region/United Way of the Inland Valleys

It is the 5th annual event......how many times does it take for them to get it right???? They act asRead More if it is being run by a government agency......If they have enough people there then post someone or a sign near the entrance to the ball park stating that they were full up...I'll bet I wasn't the only one turned away..Some folks, (US Marines) came from as far away as Camp Pendleton.....and some of them just got back from the "Sandbox" overseas.......Sorry if I sound bitter, but I was asked to come and volunteer.......
Linda V. Newman August 30, 2011 at 03:10 am
I apologize for any mistakes on our part this past Saturday. We do our best to accommodateRead More everyone. All staff are volunteers who work for our Day of Caring events. I was personally very disappointed when I learned about your situation. This was my first year overseeing the Southwest Region's event. My son's last deployment was Afghanistan before returning home. I know he would have been very disappointed had he realized registration was needed prior to the event to be included for the t-shirt and meals if he had not been told. We had more volunteers than we had expected which is fantastic. To be fair to those who did register, as all our information stated, they had to be allowed to participate to their assigned projects . Thank you for helping us learn to accommodate better for those who don't get all the correct information about our events. Our allowance for extra volunteers was filled beyond our expectations. We truly appreciate the participation of our military personnel. There was a large group from Camp Pendleton that did have a very enjoyable experience that day. Your efforts to help say so much about you. Please know we have learned an important lesson from this. Had you attended you would have heard me ask all the military personnel to rise after I thanked all the volunteers. We then gave a round of applause for those who serve our country every day and thanked them for their contribution. Thank you for understanding.
Michael D. Cain August 30, 2011 at 02:18 pm
Linda thank you for taking the time to apologize for the Misunderstanding. When I wrote the commentRead More I was upset. Like I said I was asked to come and partisapate and had no idea I had to register or else I would have. But as with everything else in life, time heals all wounds and I am ok now and if I decide to "volunteer next year I will be forewarned. But thank you again for taking the time to address this and I accept your apology even though one is not warranted.
Dave Rusk August 25, 2011 at 07:35 pm
Thank You Toni, Your kind words are helping to make wishes come for some very derserving kids. TodayRead More I made it to Phoenix,AZ where tomorrow I will visit the national Wish House. Talk to you soon
Kristine Anderson August 26, 2011 at 11:59 am
Great job Dave! You are making kids wishes come true.

Ron is so deserving of this award. And I know he'll say it is not him - it is his team. God hasRead More placed Ron to oversee HOPE and its many missions helping the needy. Great job Ron & what a great team of volunteers you have! None of them paid! The Lord shall provide!
Connie August 2, 2011 at 07:15 pm
Congrats Ron!
Wizard Without Remorse August 3, 2011 at 03:05 am
Well deserved recognition for a man who has given so much to this community over the years!Read More Hopefully this recognition will provide more donations and service hours to HOPE as there is a huge and growing need that Ron and HOPE are trying to fill. God Bless you Ron and all the other volunteers at HOPE and Second Harvest.

Glad to see so many people behind our troops. Those that aren't should be in front of them.
Charles Baker July 29, 2011 at 11:23 pm
Just left the Chocolate Factory. Met Rob, the proprietor, and Brandon was our clerk for ourRead More purchase. Both were very pleasant to talk with during our visit. Please pass the word along of their promo drive for our troops. So nice to see people backing our troops like this. Bought a pound for Pa in Arizona and got a pound for us. We got the variety pound. Just what we really need. Diabetics with a pound of fudge. Along with supporting the troops, we're supporting our waistline, too.
Debra S July 30, 2011 at 03:17 pm
OoooH, I love their fudge & candies.

Great article Janice. When I first started workng at the shelter and I saw Terri with the pets andRead More how much work she puts into getting these dogs adopted I would say they she treats them all like they are her little children. Her and her foster moms do a wonderful job and these pets are lucky to have them.
J Carabine July 12, 2011 at 11:36 am
I have met more foster parents since this article and I am thrilled this program is in place to helpRead More more pets get fur-ever homes. Often they are dropped off with little or no information about the dog and that truly makes it harder to adopt them out. Anything that make a difference in that area is a very good thing. Now,if we can just get people to understand they need to spay and neuter.
Jackie Terando McClement August 5, 2013 at 12:49 pm
I have 6 pups abandoned in the local hills that I am "fostering" privately. 3 are readyRead More for adoption but their 3 siblings I trapped 3 weeks later are not. I already have my own personal pets and certainly can't keep them all. Having just received a complaint notice for Barking Dogs I am afraid they will be taken away and most likely euthanized. (I am home just about 24/7 so I know they are not barking for extended periods of time) I need suggestions and help! Upset in Menifee
