“HORSES AND THEIR HEROES” Open House at Horses of Tir Na Nog Sanctuary – April 28, 2019

“Horses and Their Heroes” Open House. Horses of Tir Na Nog Sanctuary invites you to visit on Sunday, April 28, 2019 from 10am– 1pm to meet our ranch residents and local heroes, including those from CAL Fire and County of San Diego Department of Animal Services.  We hope that you will make plans to visit the ranch and meet the newest residents, as well as visit with old friends. Youngsters, and the young at heart, are welcome to dress as heroes. This family-friendly event is FREE, but we do ask that you RSVP by April 23 at or email We will respond to your RSVP with directions to the ranch. We are located in Guatay, just east of Descanso.

In 2018 the number of horses in our care increased dramatically with several horses arriving from County of San Diego Department of Animal Services and eight from HiCaliber Horse Rescue and other local rescues in need. And of course, between August 2018 and January 2019 our mustang herd more than quadrupled in size. In order to meet the challenges this growth has brought, we have a special request for this year’s open house.

When you come, bring a friend! Help us share the magic of Tir Na Nog at this once-a-year open house.

Alpine’s Radio Station Mountain Country 107.9 Now Available on Amazon’s Alexa Enabled Devices

The mountain 1079 FM Alpine ca 919012019 will be a year of expansion for East County Broadcasting, a non-profit 501(c)3 operating KRLY-FM 107.9 in Alpine.

As of March 1st, Mountain Country 107.9 is now available on Amazon’s Alexa Enabled devices. “This was a platform that we were excited to be a part of” states station manager Chris Torrick. “Last Christmas, this was THE gift to give and get. So much so that Amazon’s system crashed for a small period of time because so many were being activated.” 100 million Amazon Alexa smart speakers have been sold and are quickly replacing the traditional clock radio.

Torrick says that in order to hear the station’s mix of classic country, Texas country, and neo-traditional country, the skill must be enabled. “When folks set up their speaker, they downloaded a app to their phone for the setup process. To add us you have to go to the app and click the action button in the upper left hand corner. At that point they search “skills” and then search Mountain Country 107.9. The final step is to click the green enable button and at that point you can ask Alexa to play us.” Torrick instructed.

In addition to the Alexa smart speakers, the radio station is available to listen by computer at and on the “Live365” app for Android, iPhone, and iPad.

“This is phase 2 of a 3 phase digital immersion for the radio station, with phase 3 being a live streaming video channel featuring community information, news, and content from the radio station that will stream direct to televisions. The tentative launch date for ‘The Alpine Channel’ is April 1st.” Torrick stated. “The Alpine Channel” will be available on Roku set top boxes and Roku smart TV’s.

Questions about Alpine’s non-profit community radio station can be directed to station manager Chris Torrick at 619-445-1079.
