Starting To Look Like Summer

LA MESA -- It is starting to feel a lot like summer -- despite the June gloom and cool temperatures.

This weekend offers a couple events that feel like things we do in summer in the Jewel of the Hills.

On Saturday, the La Mesa Historical Society will be conducting a Vintage Yard Sale. Comprised of antique gifts to the society and items that are duplicates or don't fit the group's historical mission, this event will allow you to indulge your yard sale desires and feel like you are doing your civic duty as well. CLICK HERE for the details.

And on Sunday evening, one of the most pleasant rites of summer begins with the first Sundays At Six Concerts at Harry Griffen Park. The Flag Day Parade had the Marine Band, and this first Sundays At Six event will give equal time to the jazz ensemble from  The Navy Band. Like the Marine Band musicians, these men and women have their skills honed and offer an amazing performance.  And these concerts are free. Bring a chair and a blanket and enjoy a pleasant, family-friendly way to end a summer weekend. CLICK HERE for the details.

LOOKING AHEAD: The Back to the '50s Car Show is set to begin this coming Thursday in the Village. The weekly meeting of the car-obsessed is an interesting stroll every week.

A new study finds that rising gas prices can change the value of your home, for better or worse, depending on where you live. Reportedly, a 10 percent increase in gas prices can boost home prices by around 2 percent in certain neighborhoods, while reducing prices by around 1 percent in others.
