LA MESA -- School graduations make for tougher traffic situations around school facilities. Helix High and La Mesa Middle And La Mesa Junior High have graduations this week and police are warning motorists to watch for unusual traffic conditions around these ceremonies.
On Thursday, May 31, La Mesa Police responded to the Rolando Little League snack bar after a citizen reported that there were several suspects trying to break in. The suspects were gone when officers arrived, but after an investigation the suspects were traced to a home on Judson Way. Four suspects were taken into custody after officers found Rolando Little League property inside the home. Once again, these arrests can be attributed to an observant citizen. If you believe you are witnessing a crime in progress, please call the police immediately (9-1-1 in an emergency, or (619) 667-1400 if not).
Graduation at Helix High School will be Wednesday, June 6, at 6:00 pm. Graduation at La Mesa Middle School and La Mesa Junior High will be June 15. As the school year comes to an end, people are reminded to be on extra alert with increased school activities, and to please slow down and drive safely near any of the schools.

As you put together items for your own emergency kit, set aside supplies for your pets too! Include water and dry food for at least a week, a leash, and a toy. Also include supplies to collect and dispose of pet wastes, e.g., plastic bags, scooper, cat litter, etc. In the event of an evacuation your pets will need ID tags, immunization papers, and a crate or carrier (large enough for your pet to stand and turn around in). Work with your animal now to make them comfortable in a carrier. For more information on creating an emergency plan for your family, visit www.heartlandfire.org.
