Taking a look at what's going down and coming up for residents in the Rancho Santa Margarita area.
• School begins in the fall, right? Not at Santa Margarita Catholic, where classes begin today at 7:30 a.m. It's a big week for the private school: Senior College Night is Thursday, the Welcome Dance is Friday, and it's Alumni Day at Angel Stadium on Sunday. If you're driving near the school, be cautious of pedestrians and cars as everyone gets back into the groove.
• The City Council will meet tonight and is expected to make it illegal for medical marijuana dispensaries to set up shop in Rancho Santa Margarita. The city's elected officials voted 5-0 at the first reading of the proposed ordinance, and with passage of the second reading the ordinance will become law. This figures to be a Jordanesque slam dunk. If you want to put in your two cents, don't be late to City Hall, 7 p.m.; public comments will take place quickly.
• Curbside Bites at Trabuco Hills High benefits the Mustangs baseball program. There's quite the assortment of food trucks from 5:30-6:30 p.m.: Mustache Mikes, Cajun on Wheels, Kala Truck, GD Bro Truck, Crepes Bonaparte, and Calbi BBQ.
• There's training taking place at Lotus 7 Yoga and Pilates. Check out the event posting here to get clued in.
• Congressman Darrell Issa, who represents Coto de Caza, was named the recipient Tuesday of an award from an environmental group that poked fun at Issa's stance that climate change isn't taking place. It's along the lines of the Golden Raspberry Award for lousy actors or Mr. Irrelevant for the last player selected in the NFL draft.
