Rep. Ken Calvert (R-Corona) is an experienced investor in Riverside County's booming real estate market, so he's used to seeing prices change quickly. Last year, he and a partner paid $550,000 for a dusty four-acre parcel just south of March Air Reserve Base. Less than a year later, without even cutting the weeds or carting off old septic tank parts that littered the ground, they sold the land for almost $1 million. Even for a speculator like Calvert, it was an unusually good deal.

A sewage leak into Lake Hodges has prompted authorities to stop drawing drinking water from the lake until bacteriological tests can be conducted, a county official said Tuesday. Ken Calvert, a hazardous materials specialist with the San Diego County Health Services Department, said that the decision was a standard precautionary procedure. He said that the San Dieguito Water District, which serves Escondido and several other North County communities, had ample alternative water supplies.
