Insurance break: Some rural landowners became eligible for lower property insurance rates starting Jan. 1, thanks to improved fire protection ratings.

Many parcels in these communities are expected to be eligible: Boulevard, Campo, Deerhorn Valley, Dehesa, Descanso, Dulzura, Harbison Canyon, Jacumba, Jamul, Lake Morena, Pine Valley, Potrero, Santa Ysabel, Shelter Valley and Tecate.

For more information, contact your insurance company or the County Fire Authority at 858- 974-5999.

The better fire protection ratings reflect the county’s efforts to beef up services across the region. The county has invested more than $400 million since 2003 in improved fire and emergency services.

Game over: While I will miss the Chargers players and their contributions to the community, all I can say to Mr. Spanos is good riddance.

He betrayed San Diego fans and that’s something a lot of us won’t ever forget.

I think we now have an opportunity to turn the Qualcomm Stadium site into a regional attraction we can all be proud of, with perhaps a world-class entertainment and sports complex, facilities for San Diego State and park space to make the most of its riverside location.

A new term: Sheriff Bill Gore recently did me the great honor of swearing me in for a historic seventh term.

I am deeply grateful for the trust that East County voters have placed in me over the years. I will continue to do all I can to live up to that trust.

I’ve also been named the 2017 chairwoman of the Board of Supervisors. I’m scheduled to deliver the annual State of the County address on Feb. 1. Contact my office for details.

—Dianne Jacob is County Supervisor for San Diego County’s District 2.
