Costco, Vons: July 4 Grocery Store Hours In Santee

Kristina Houck

SANTEE, CA — The Fourth of July holiday won't be the same amid the coronavirus pandemic, but that doesn't mean people in Santee and across San Diego County can't celebrate with hot dogs, potato chips and other July 4 classics.

It's almost inevitable that a supply of condiments or something else will be forgotten on the day. Luckily, the majority of grocery stores will still be open on Independence Day.

Here are the grocery stores that will be open on the Fourth of July in San Diego County, along with a couple of those that won't.

Some grocery stores are still operating under special coronavirus-related hours, so make sure to double-check with your neighborhood location.

    ICE to launch 'Citizens Academy' to teach civilians about 'targeted arrests'

    A “Citizens Academy” planned by a branch of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which will include “scenario-based training and exercises,” is spreading alarm among civil liberties and immigration rights organizations — which question why the agency is devoting resources to providing civilians with “firearms familiarization” and instruction in “targeted arrests.” The program, set to begin in Chicago this fall as “a pilot for nationwide implementation,” will be run by ICE's Enforcement and Removal Operations branch, which is responsible for detaining and deporting immigrants. A memo from Robert Guadian, the director of ICE ERO's Chicago field office, which was obtained by Yahoo News, describes a six-week program (four-hour sessions held once a week) during which “participants will gain insight into the many facets and responsibilities of ICE/ERO operations” through, among other things, “scenario-based training and exercises conducted in a safe and positive environment, including, but not limited to, defensive tactics, firearms familiarization, and targeted arrests.”

    What do dueling crises reveal about American exceptionalism?

    When President Ronald Reagan left office, he defined America as a “shining city on a hill,” a country that other nations would look to as a model of prosperity and freedom. Reagan, like many other presidents and politicians, lauded the country for its “American exceptionalism,” the set of beliefs that the country's history, values and politics make it distinct and worthy of respect and leadership on the world stage. A staggering 62 percent of Americans no longer see their country as the “shining city on a hill” that Reagan once imagined, a Yahoo News/YouGov poll revealed.

    Graham to Call Robert Mueller to Testify after Op-Ed Defending Roger Stone Prosecution

    Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) said Sunday that he will grant Democrats' request to have former special counsel Robert Mueller testify about his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election before the committee. Graham's surprising statement came a day after Mueller broke his silence to defend his office's prosecution of President Trump's longtime friend Roger Stone in an op-ed published by the Washington Post. Stone was convicted of crimes that included lying to Congress, prosecutors alleged, to protect the president, but had his sentence commuted by the president just days before he was set to report to federal prison.

    Harris County Judge Demands ‘Drastic Action’ as COVID-19 Wreaks Havoc in Houston

    A top official in Houston says the time has come for “drastic action” on the coronavirus, with a COVID-19 surge filling ICU beds, forcing the city to import medical workers, and taking an especially harsh toll on the Latino community. The warning came as Houston Rockets superstar guard Russell Westbrook revealed Monday that he has tested positive, and after a brutal heat wave curtailed testing over the weekend. “What we feared would happen is coming to pass,” Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo, the county's chief executive, said at a Monday press conference.

    Hamburg sex workers demand Germany's brothels reopen

    Prostitutes demonstrated in Hamburg's red light district late on Saturday evening demanding that Germany's brothels be allowed to reopen after months of closure to curb the spread of coronavirus. With shops, restaurants and bars all open again in Germany, where prostitution is legal, sex workers say they are being singled out and deprived of their livelihoods despite not posing a greater health risk. "The oldest profession needs your help," read a notice held up by one woman in a brothel window in the Herbertstrasse, which was flooded with red light after being dark since March.

    'Kids have to go back to school': DeVos ducks repeated questions about how schools can reopen safely amid pandemic

    Education Secretary Betsy DeVos repeatedly parried questions on Sunday about how US schools can safely re-open this fall, resorting to the refrain that they simply must open back up so that children can receive an education and parents can go back to work. In an interview with CNN, Ms DeVos offered little new information on what her department is doing to alleviate concerns of teachers, parents, and students about how schools can cope amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Throughout the interview, Ms DeVos downplayed the risks that the virus poses to students.

    Fox News condemns former Tucker Carlson writer for 'horrific' racist, sexist comments

    Blake Neff, a writer for "Tucker Carlson Tonight," has resigned from the top-rated Fox News show amid reports he posted racist, sexist and homophobic comments to an online forum under a pseudonym.

Using the pseudonym CharlesXII, an apparent reference to the late Swedish king known for his military leadership and abstemious personal life, Neff shared an array of bigoted opinions on Black and Asian people, the Mormon church and immigrants.

    How to watch for spectacular Comet Neowise – before it disappears for 6,800 years

    Skywatchers are in for a treat over the next few weeks as newly discovered Comet Neowise is paying a visit to the inner solar system for the first time in 6,800 years. The comet has been getting brighter and brighter in the early morning sky, AccuWeather said, and in the coming days, it will make an appearance in the evening after sunset. Neowise is one of the few comets visible to the unaided eye this century, an inner-solar system "intruder" that might become known as the Great Comet of 2020, NASA said.

In a virtual town hall meeting on Thursday, reported by The Hill, AOC was questioned about the significant rise in crime in the city. “Do we think this has to do with the fact that there's record unemployment in the United States right now?” she said.

    Coronavirus antibodies seem to disappear after just a few months in many people. Here's why you shouldn't panic.

    Antibodies may last just a few weeks or months In April, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, hypothesized that people who were recovering from COVID-19 at that time would likely be immune into the fall. "If we get infected in February and March and recover, next September, October, that person who's infected — I believe — is going to be protected," Fauci said. But the evidence from the UK study suggests the time frame might be shorter.

Because state health officials recommend putting three to six feet between students, and because classrooms were already crowded and schools over-enrolled, the district leadership has decided to alternate attendance. Half the student population will attend Mondays and Wednesdays.
