This is super awesome - You have to check this out!

Amazing to listen to this little one talk to herself while skiing. Sometimes you just have to let kids be themselves and not over 'helicopter parent' them.

Here is an interview the family did on CNN:

Important info for Riverside County renters who need help due to COVID-19 loss of work

We recently got this email from Riverside County 3rd district Supervisor Chuck Washington and wanted to share it with all of you. 

Being in the rental business, we know that many families have struggled with rent because of loss of work due to COVID-19 shutdowns. Here is his important email about how you can apply for rent assistance. 

This program opens today, March 8 2021!

Dear Third District Resident,

New rental assistance resources will become available on Monday, March 8 to keep Riverside County families housed.

The Riverside County Board of Supervisors in February voted to approve $57,267,219 in emergency rental assistance program funding from the U.S. Department of the Treasury. Combined with previous funding rounds from the CARES Act, Community Development Block Grant funds and other sources, United Lift totals more than $90 million.

The program is one of the largest per capita allocations of direct rental assistance in the country and one of a handful to operate on a countywide basis.

This year, the program will provide one-time rental assistance support to cover up to 12 months of unpaid rent during the period between March 13, 2020 until the time of application, plus an additional three months of future rent. Eligibility is limited to renters in Riverside County with a current lease agreement who are earning 80 percent or below of the area’s median income and can document a loss of income due to COVID-19 economic impacts that leave them unable to make their rent. Assistance is provided without regard to immigration status.

Sage: Marijuana farm busted, weapons and cash seized

Sage, CA - On Tuesday, February 16, 2021 investigators from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department’s Marijuana Enforcement Team (MET) served a search warrant at an illegal marijuana cultivation operating at a private residence in the unincorporated area of Riverside County known as Sage. The search warrant was authored in response to citizen complaints about the residence.

Upon arrival, investigators located several outbuildings containing marijuana plants in various stages of growth. Additionally, investigators located a cannabis edibles manufacturing operation on the property. A further search of the property turned up a large cache of illegal weapons and over $700,000 in US Currency. Employees of the operations were detained, questioned, and later released. The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is encouraged to contact Investigator James Roy at 951-955-1700. The goal of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department is to keep our citizens safe while also improving the quality of life for those residing within the community.  

The illegal cultivation and sale of marijuana poses a great risk to neighboring residents.  These operations also negatively impact cannabis businesses legally operating within Riverside County. The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department has a zero-tolerance policy for these offenses. If you suspect drug activity in your area, please contact your local Sheriff’s Station.
