August 1, 2013 (Lakeside) – Lakeside resident Dennis Richardson was shocked to find a gift-wrapped box outside his home left around 1:20 a.m. on Tuesday,  July 30 with a hand-scrawled threat reading “Someone’s gonna get beat with my bat!”  He called the Sheriff, who dispatched a Bomb-Arson team to blow up the box as a suspicious device. 

After the explosion, they found a dead rabbit in the box with a red ribbon tied around its neck. Surveillance video showed four male suspects in light-colored clothing—and they left behind clues, including a shoebox for men’s athletic shoes, size 13, white Active Performance Succeed- manufactured by Champion and sold locally at Target.  A video of the suspects has been posted on the Lakeside Eucalyptus Hills Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Eucalyptus-Hills-in-Lakeside-California-92040/157660207604891

Richardson, whose photos and stories have been featured in ECM, said of the threat, “I react and take it serious…This is a federal offense—making terroristic threats.”  He has offered a $200 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects.

December 19, 2011 (Lakeside) -- Dignitaries and VIPs braved the blustery wind for the grand opening of the new Lakeside Fire District Administration Office and combination Fire Station #2 on December 16.  It was branded a "sneak preview" since the station has about two weeks worth of finishing work to be done by the contractors.  Firefighters are hoping to be moved into the now empty 24,000 square foot structure by mid-January.
