Melissa posted this to the Ramona Facebook page:
To all of the Ramona Patch faithful readers and followers: Last Friday, Patch made some severe cuts, laying off nearly 500 employees, including myself. I am sad to go and leave behind such a great community. Thank you all for the tips, pictures, questions and curiosity. Ramona is such a special place. You guys made my time here oh so worth it. Have a glass of wine for me tonight. Cheers -MP

4. Blog of the day- School District's future is grimm
"The Ramona School Board was gracious enough to invite the public to a review of the long-term district finances, Saturday 8/17. The school district presentation was foreboding as all the recent cuts and labor negotiations barely pushed it into the black this year. In 2014~15 they are looking at a $3.3M deficit and growing into the future."
What do you think?
