Farming in San Diego

The range steer was the first historical part of farming in San Diego. Life on a farm in the 1800's was not easy. Farming tools were mostly simple hand held iron tools. Some examples include the Scythe (sharp curved blade at the end of a pole to harvest grain. Midwest farmers lived initially in soddies (houses made of sod) and injuries were very common in this kind of life. Through these injuries, at least the soil was very rich and full of nutrients.

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

I fully support the US government in there effort to relocate Native Americans and use force to those who disagree. They have been harassing my family and i feel like my family are in danger when they are around our homes.

Dear editor,

I respectfully disagree about the actions towards the Native American people. I feel like they should be able to live where they want and using force to make them leave does not help anything, I believe it makes the situation worse and makes them more hostile.
