Letters to the Editor
City has some interesting rules
    Being a relative newcomer to Valley Center, I was looking through the municipal codes and did not realize the city has determined the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States does not apply when evidence of a crime does not exist. Refer to Sections 7.04.099 and 10.14.060. These sections state that any city official may enter your residence without warrant and you cannot refuse. (Interesting isn't it?)
Rains make mowing difficult
    We have been rural Valley Center residents for 20-plus years, annexed in the early 1990s. Recently, we received a certified letter from the city that stated we had grass in excess of 8 inches in height and needed to be mowed within five days.
