Goodwill San Diego Paid Training Program

Goodwill San Diego Paid Training Program

Zero risk and high reward. Goodwill is helping people with barriers to employment get paid job training.
Goodwill’s Paid Training Program is a three-month, hands-on, training program designed for people who have little to no work experience. Participants work part-time at 12 dollars an hour while learning retail and donations skills. Interested applicants can visit Goodwill’s Community Employment Centers and receive free assistance when applying.
Once the program participants graduate, they will be encouraged to apply for regular employment with Goodwill San Diego or other community employers. Participants will receive assistance from Goodwill Career Advisors to determine the right course of action when taking their next step. Goodwill San Diego uses the revenue generated from the sale of donated goods at its retail stores, after-market facilities, and online to provide employment and training opportunities to people with disabilities and other barriers to employment. Making Good Happen since 1930.

Alpine Fire Chief Bill Paskle Announces Retirement to Take Place December 30, 2019

ALPINE November 26, 2019 Bill Paskle, the Fire Chief for the Alpine Fire Protection District (AFPD), has officially announced his retirement from the District.

Fire Chief Paskle confirmed his planned retirement to the Board of Directors in a letter received and acknowledged at the November 19, 2019 regularly scheduled Board of Directors meeting. Board President Jim Easterling read the letter aloud during the meeting and thanked the Fire Chief for his many years of service to the District. The official retirement date will be December 30, 2019.

Chief Paskle has worked for the AFPD for 31 years, the last 12 years leading the agency as the Fire Chief. He began his fire service career in 1987 with the Bostonia Fire Protection District as a volunteer Firefighter, the following year he was employed as a seasonal Firefighter for the California Department of Forestry (now Cal Fire). In 1989, he joined the AFPD as a Cadet Firefighter, and in 2008 became the first Chief of the District to rise through the ranks from Firefighter to Fire Chief. He also served as president, secretary and treasurer for the Alpine Firefighters Association.

During his tenure with the District, he initiated and oversaw the annexation of areas to the District, increasing the organization’s jurisdiction by 25%. Chief Paskle formalized the 4-person crew policy and was successful in decreasing response times. The Districts ISO rating, an insurance industry metric of a fire agency’s effectiveness on a scale of 1-10, improved under Chief Paskle, from a rating of 6 down to 2. Chief Paskle has served on several boards on behalf of the District. He served as president on the Fire Agencies Insurance Risk Authority (FAIRA) and the San Diego Fire Districts Association, and treasurer and secretary for the San Diego County Fire Chiefs Association. He also chaired the Board of Directors of the San Diego/Imperial County Regional Communications System (RCS) and served on the Board of Directors for the Fire Districts Association of California. He was Zone Coordinator for fire resources in the Central Zone of San Diego County, helping mobilize resources for emergencies throughout the state.

AFPD Board President Jim Easterling said, “On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Alpine Fire Protection District we would like to thank Chief Paskle for 31 years of excellent service to the community of Alpine. Further we wish him a long and enjoyable retirement.” For retirement, Chief Paskle has no immediate plans other than traveling, spending time with his wife Dana and sons Eddie and Ryan and catching up on his honey-do list. He plans on staying active in the Alpine community and is a member of the Kiwanis Club of Alpine serving this year as vice president. The Board of Directors has not named a successor at this time.

Registration Now Open for the 2019 Alpine Parade of Lights & Snow Festival!

By The Alpine Chamber of Commerce

Mark your calendar! The 24th Annual Parade of Lights & Snow Festival will be on Friday, December 6, 2019! The festival begins at 5:00pm and the parade steps off at 6:30pm!

Alpine’s hometown celebration of the holidays features a glowing night parade, a free snow festival with Santa Claus, real snow for sledding, children’s activities and vendors. Just the thing to put everyone in the spirit of the season! It’s an evening where everyone’s a neighbor, including visitors!

There’s nothing like a glowing night parade of lights with a snow festival and real snow to celebrate Christmas in Alpine! Add a village lighting contest, cool weather and rural scenery in the foothills and you have a memorable holiday season. The Parade will be on Alpine Boulevard, from West Victoria Drive to Tavern Road, and the Snow Festival is at the Alpine Community Center, 1830 Alpine Blvd.

“The Chamber would like to invite everyone to enjoy the annual Alpine Village Christmas Parade of Lights & Snow Festival,” said Chamber board Director Rose Signore of Postal Annex of Alpine. “Bring your children and the whole family. Watch the kids sliding down the snow hill —- it’s real snow!”

Parade registration is available online at and in person at the Chamber office, 1620 Alpine Blvd, Ste 208. Vendor booths at the Snow Festival are available as well. Since space is limited, early registration is recommended.

Well in advance of the parade the village will twinkle for the holiday lighting contest. Anyone who decorates a business or a meeting place during November on Alpine Boulevard, Arnold Way or Tavern Road is eligible to compete. Judging for the contest will be Dec. 4, starting at 6 p.m. The winners will be announced later at the Snow Festival. The name of the overall winner will be placed on the Chamber’s perpetual Parade of Lights plaque.

For more information call the Alpine Chamber of Commerce at (619) 445-2722.  The Chamber is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.  Find out more by visiting or
