Local Business Spotlight: LITTLE PIONEER’S PRESCHOOL

On March 3, 1997 Little Pioneers Preschool opened their doors. We are family owned and operated and have been offering Alpine and it’s surrounding communities the highest quality Preschool for over 22 years! My name is Lori Harding and I own Little Pioneers Preschool. It was always a dream of mine to open a Preschool and opening one in Alpine came naturally to me since I have lived here for over 40 years.

I consider myself lucky to own this school and to have such a supportive staff that loves working with children. Our Teachers bring new ideas and a fresh outlook to our Preschool curriculum.

With age appropriate curriculum, kindergarten readiness, daily art, storytime and songs, we encourage children to develop their natural potential, to feel good about themselves and to regard school as a rewarding experience.

Our teachers are highly qualified, loving and enjoy teaching children.

We are open Monday through Friday from 7am to 5pm – offering 1/2 day and full day programs. Call now for more information. Limited space is available.

Marieta’s Mexican Restaurant Opens in Alpine – Resident Mary Davis Gives a Review

Valentine’s Day came early to Alpine with the opening of Marieta’s Restaurant on Monday, February 11, 2019. Located at the old Alpine Inn Restaurant, the popular chain of restaurants now proudly adds an Alpine destination to its string of successful restaurants. Wanting to check the new place out, my husband and I popped in for a late lunch on February 14th, and were greeted by the friendly staff member who held the door for us during the torrential downpour that day.

Entering through the back of the restaurant (where parking is closest), we immediately noticed the previously dark hallway was now light and airy. The whole restaurant has been redone with festive and thoughtful décor. Featuring paintings depicting Mexican heritage and themed vignettes, the ambience exudes a warm and welcoming atmosphere that beckons patrons to sit and savor the culinary delights that are in store for them.

Our server, Herman, gave us a quick tour of the revamped restaurant, including the new cantina, as well as a back room that seems perfect for groups and banquets. My husband and I settled into a booth that was large and comfortable. Adorned with pink and red Mylar heart balloons, the restaurant looked ready for Cupid’s arrows to fly during the busy night ahead.

We started out with libations – margaritas, of course – as we looked through the menu, while our busboy Isaac brought us salsa, chips, and Mexican carrots. Featuring classics such as a variety of fajitas, Enchiladas Suizas, and Camarones Tequila, there was something to please every palate (and even a Hamburguesa California for those craving a more mainstream option.)

My husband opted for the two-burrito combination meal, while I went with a “Special Burrito” featuring steak fajitas. The meat was tender, juicy, and savory, with a true fajita flavor. The onions and green peppers were cooked to perfection – tender, but with just enough crispness to give a palatable texture and crunch. The combination-plate burritos were full of flavorful beef covered in a delicious sauce and accompanied by rice and beans. My burrito plate came with pinto beans in a liquid soup-type sauce that was hearty and delicious (and would be an ample meal itself for a light eater.)

With no room for dessert, we passed on the temptations offered us, and instead reminisced on how the restaurant had changed over the years. From the dark interior and deep-red vinyl booths of the original Alpine Inn, the restaurant now features not only lightened colors, but also details such as stenciling, colorful textiles, and rainbow-hued paper flowers to add color and vibrancy to what was previously a pretty dark and drab interior.

One thing we were pleased to see was that the new owners kept many of the old elements, like the stained glass panels, the casks and cask-themed wall art, as well as the old fireplace and beamed interior. Instead of removing or replacing them, they instead reinvented them in a way that gives freshness and vibrancy while still maintaining an Old-World feel (one of a historic hacienda however, and no longer a drab Tudor-inspired castle.)

Marieta’s Alpine location is definitely worth a visit (or two!), both to check out the renovation of an Alpine landmark, as well as to enjoy a quality meal that is sure to please. Having eaten at various Marieta’s locations in East County, we were very happy that our experience in Alpine lived up to the quality and value we have come to expect from this family-favorite chain of restaurants. The food is fantastic and the service attentive. What was old is now new again, with the latest addition to our local food scene, Marieta’s in Alpine.

Marieta’s is located at 2225 Alpine Blvd. and offers a full bar and cantina. The menu features its standard items offered at its other three locations. Hours are:  Mon-Thur 11am to 10pm, Fri-Sat 11am-10pm, and Sun 9am-10pm, and the phone number is (619)-722-4232.

Local Business Spotlight – Realign Design by Ginger Helgeson

Back, Neck, Knee or Foot Pain? Experience Non-Medical, Non-Evasive PAIN RELIEF.

Ginger_Realign Design_AD8_560

I am a Certified Posture Alignment Therapist, personally trained with Pete Egoscue and through the Egoscue University, established in 1988. My typical client is one who is currently experiencing joint and muscle pain, and is looking for a natural alternative to the chronic pain merry-go-round.  If that describes you, call me!

The ability to re-establish proper muscle and joint position hinges on identifying and unraveling muscular compensations. Then the muscles must be stimulated to maintain proper length, tension and stability. When the joints are properly aligned, the body will be able to move freely and efficiently. The wear and tear and joint inflammation will be reduced, cartilage will have the opportunity to regenerate, and you will be able to move more freely and with ease than you have in years.



  1. Do you want to be self-reliant and empowered to get your body into the best posture and motion possible?
  2. Would you like to avoid surgery or prescription medications?
  3. Do you have nagging or episodic pain that has come and gone for years?
  4. Have you experienced limited or no success with traditional therapies like physical therapy, chiropractic, massage?
  5. Are you an athlete looking to get an edge on your competition and enhance your performance?
  6. Would you like to improve your posture but not sure how to do it on your own?

If you answered YES to any or all of these questions, then regardless of your age or current situation, the powerful benefits of training with me at Realign Design is for you!

Ginger HelgesonMy Story
– 9 Years on WTA pro tennis circuit.
– Wimbledon, French, Australian fourth round, US Open fourth round and quarter finalist.
– Achieved a career high ranking of #29 in the world.
– Inductee in Pepperdine Hall of Fame.
– Certified Egoscue Therapist.

While playing tennis for Pepperdine University, I suffered for 2 years with Plantar Fasciitis, a painful foot / heel condition. After doing Pete Egoscue’s specifically tailored menus, my painful symptoms were relieved. I would never have had the longevity of a grueling pro-career had it not been for Pete Egoscue. Limiting your favorite activities and turning to ice and anti-inflammatory’s to mask the pain, is not the answer.

It is self empowering to do exercises on your own that treat the dysfunction. This will allow for lasting shifts in the body. The muscles and nerves are the boss of the body; they tell the bones what to do. The Egoscue Method achieves postural alignment and musculoskeletal balance by working through a series of exercises that stretch and strengthen specific muscles so the body can return to proper alignment and function the way it was meant to be, pain free!


My company is Realign Design. I offer a non-medical, non-invasive approach to relieving pain, restoring posture and maximizing athletic performance. I can help you be successful in golf, tennis, baseball, football and athletics, as well as daily living activities.

Private Instruction
– Posture assessment
– Gait analysis
– Custom tailored menus
– Minimize risk of injury
– Increase strength, flexibility and mobility
– Sport specific – Golf, Tennis, Football, Baseball, Soccer


     “I was fortunate to come across the Egoscue Method in 1992, during my eleven year professional tennis career on the WTA Tour. I can honestly say with 100% certainty that I would not have been able to compete at that level for 11 years, without a single surgery, had it not been for the Egoscue Method. In 1992 I had a serious back injury and was told that I needed surgery and would be off the Tour for 4-6 months. A fellow competitor on the WTA Tour recommended that I try the Egoscue Method first, before any surgery. I am so grateful that I gave it a try since I was back on the courts in 2 weeks and competing in 6 weeks. Over the course of my career I had overuse injuries with plantar fasciitis, low back pain and tendonitis in my right wrist. The Egoscue Method taught me how they were all connected with my spinal posture. This knowledge enabled me to prevent any injuries that would cause me to miss time competing. I was diligent in doing my menus to stay in alignment and stay on the courts. I wholeheartedly recommend and believe in the postural alignment therapy and in Ginger’s ability to see any deviation from your optimum alignment!”
