Bill Craven (R-Oceanside), money for the roadside telephones would be raised through a $1 temporary surcharge on vehicle registration fees. The bill now goes before Gov.

San Diego is the kind of place where a 4,000-acre planned community springs out of the ground seemingly overnight, so it's not surprising to learn that a new freeway-oriented technology corridor is emerging to challenge the one along Interstate 5. Research and development construction along Interstate 15 is making the corridor a major competitor of the more mature Interstate 5 strip to the west, according to Ken Satterlee and Mike Conerty of John Burnham & Co., San Diego.

About seven years ago, a man jumped into the ocean with his clothes and cowboy boots on to rescue two young girls who were being swept out to sea on their body boards by a riptide. "The kids were washed back in with the surf, but the young man drowned," recalled Denny Stoufer, lifeguard supervisor at Carlsbad State Beach, where the accident occurred. It was during the off-season, in autumn, and lifeguard service had been reduced to patrols of the 13-mile stretch, Stoufer said.

As more and more unauthorized immigrants cross the U.S.-Mexico border, the toll of undocumented pedestrians struck by vehicles and killed on the freeways of San Diego County continues to mount. This past weekend, authorities say, three more people believed to have been undocumented immigrants were killed along Interstate 5. In recent years, border-area freeways have become deathtraps for undocumented people who attempt to negotiate the busy roads on foot.
