San Diego may be known nationwide for its beautiful beaches and unbeatable year - round weather, but what many people don’t realize is that many of the avocados in their tacos, the lettuce and tomatoes in their salad, and the potted plants for their yard are all grown right here in San Diego County.
Nearly 1,500 students graduate from Oceanside Unified School District (OUSD) high schools each year. With diploma in hand they are deemed ready for the next step whether pursuing a postsecondary degree or certificate, starting a job or joining the military. But, are they really prepared to meet the needs of local, regional, and global businesses?
On Armed Forces Day, Saturday, May 18, 2019, the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce will host Operation Appreciation. This event is a day of recognition and appreciation to all active-duty military stationed on Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton and nearby military bases.
The USO has arrived at Camp Pendleton and in less than a year has already served more than 45,000 military members.

LAMVIN, Inc. is a manufacturer of custom architectural acoustical products here in Oceanside, California. Opened in 1961, the company’s name was derived from Laminating Vinyl. Under new ownership in the 1980s, acoustical products became their primary focus. (If you’ve ever eaten in a noisy restaurant or café, you can most often attribute the noise level to a lack of “acoustic absorption”. Acoustic absorption reduces sound and echoes by adding soft materials to hard surfaces.)
In 2009, the City of Oceanside adopted the Coast Highway Vision and Strategic Plan. This plan serves as a blueprint for the revitalization and enhancement of the Coast Highway corridor between Harbor Drive in the north and Buena Vista Lagoon in the south. The Vision and Strategic Plan includes several recommendations to transform Coast Highway from an auto-oriented thoroughfare into a "complete street" that serves all modes of transportation from automobiles to pedestrians to bicyclists and transit vehicles.
