Temescal Canyon Road Construction and Closure

Each year during the rainy season the Bedford Wash fills and floods the low points of Temescal Canyon Road. The water can quickly rise and be dangerous for cars and trucks. As South Corona grows this problem will only be compounded with all of the new homes and business in the Dos Lagos area. The City of Corona, Riverside Supervisor John Tavagilone and the Dos Lagos Development Group have banded together to correct this problem.

The Temescal Canyon Road will be closed South of Cajalco and North of Weirick from Monday November 28th until Monday, January 9th. This is to allow for the for construction of the four lane Bedford Wash Bridge. During this time all traffic will be rerouted onto the 15 Freeeway.

This joint effort project is scheduled to be completed by January 9th 2006 but this date may fluctuate some with weather or unforeseen factors. Hopefully our new 4 lane bridge entering into the divided streets of Dos Lagos with beautiful majestic oaks down the center will be complete by the first hard rainfall.

Any questions may be directed to the construction hotline at (951) 279-3060 or see the Dos Lagos web site at .

There is a move afoot in Congress (H.R. 1152) to change the name of Prado Dam to the Victor V. Veysey Dam. It is sponsored by Congressman Ken Calvert to honor his father's friend.

The Prado Dam has existed for nearly 65 years and was named for the frontier town called Prado, once located in the basin behind the dam. Prado is important because:
  • The area was inhabited for centuries, first by the Gabrielene Indians, then by Spanish settlers of Rancho El Rincon and then by American Farmers.
  • The Butterfield stage stopped at Prado.
  • Besides homes, significant structures in Prado included a railroad depot, a post office, a school house, a hotel, a general store and a garage.
  • Three hundred citizens called Prado home.

If you agree, please contact Congressman Calvert:

Free 411 Telephone Directory Service


We recently ran across a great money saver that we would like to share with you. A new service, 1-800-Free-411, offers free directory assistance to all callers. This service not only gives you the number but will connect you for free.

No more 75 cents every time you need to 411 directory assistance. You can use this service in your car so that you don't have to fumble for numbers or a quick call ahead to save gas. 1-800-free-411 will also give you the last number you looked up just by hitting the #9 key when you call them back.

We highly recommend adding them to your speed dial for quick access!

What's the catch, after you give them the name and city to look up you listen to a brief 15-20 seconds commercial. Sometimes this may even be an offer related to the number you are looking up.
Example: you call for a number for your local pizza restaurant and the commercial tells you about a $2 off special another pizza restaurant is offering and offers to connect you immediately if you hit the number 5.

So far we have found this to be a really cool service and a great way to save some change. Give it a try today at 1-800-Free-411 (1-800-373-3411).

Please forward this email to all of your frugal friends and don't forget to visit !
