to become California&apos;s newest area code New 760 Area Code to Begin Serving Large Southern California Region including Inyo County March 22 760 splits off from 619 Agriculture week celebrates Nevada Heritage SAN DIEGO - The new 760 area code will become California's 15'" area code when it begins serving northern San Diego County and several other Southern California counties beginning March 22. The 760 area code is being created through a geographic split of the 619 area code, which currently serves virtually all of San Diego, Inyo and Mono counties, most of San Bernardino County, all of Imperial County, about two- thirds of Riverside County, a small portion of Kern County and very small portions of Tulare, Los Angeles and Madera counties. In the 619-760 split, the southern portion of San Diego County will keep the 619 area code, while the rest of the existing 619 area code will receive the new 760 area code. The new area code is needed to meet the growing demand for new phone numbers in the region. lncluded in the new 760 area code are: The new 760 area code will serve northern San Diego County (except a small portion in the 909 area code), all of Imperial County, most of San Bernardino County, including Baker, virtually all oflnyo Shoshone and TecopaandMono cuunties, about two-thirds of Riverside County, a small portion of Kern County and very small portions of Tulare, Los Angeles and Madera counties. Some of the cities and communities in these areas include Carlsbad, Oceanside, Vista, San Marcos, Escondido, Ramona and the majority of Enci nitas (San Diego County), El Centro, Brawley, Calexico (Imperial County), Palm Springs, Indio, Blythe, (Riverside County), Twentynine Palms, Needles, Baker, Victorville, Barstow (San Bernardino County). Shoshone, Death Valley !f N:  I . e. ]i ,! : Junction, Lone Pine and Bishop (Inyo County), Crestview and Bridgeport (Mono County), Ridgecrest, Inyokern, Lake Isabella and California City (Kern County) and Kernville (Tulare County). California code administrator Bruce Bennett said the new 760 area code is expected to accommodate the need for new phone numbers for about eight years, while the reconfigured 619 area code is anticipated to last about four years. These projected area code lifespans are lower than originally forecast, added Bennett. "This is due to heavy phone number use in 1996 that is expected to continue for several years because of the onset of local competition in California's telephone market."

Governor Bob Miller has proclaimed March 16- 22 as Nevada's "Agriculture Week." Whether producing leaner cuts of meat, protecting the environment or providing consumer education, American agriculture is more responsive than ever to the desires of the consumer. National Agriculture Week will celebrate this consumer focuses with the theme "Growing Better Every Day ...Together!" "Nevada's history is deeply rooted in agriculture," said Tim Hafen of Pahrump, chairman of the Nevada Board of Agriculture. "Agriculture continues to be the economic cornerstone of many of our rural communities. By providing open space, agriculture also serves to improve the quality of life for adjacent urban areas. Like their neighbors, Nevada's agriculturists are concerned about their health and the environment." Environmental protecti6n is practiced throughout the state, according to Nevada Department of Business & Industry's Division of Agriculture pesticide specialist Charles Moses: "Ranchers and farmers recycle pesticide containers and safely dispose of thousands of pounds of unwanted pesticides through our Pesticide Waste Disposal Programs. Plus, these producers continue to decrease their use of pesticides by utilizing better pest management practices." Paul Iverson, Division of Agriculture administrator, says people are often surprised to discover Nevada has a thriving agricultural industry. "Most of our large farming operations are tucked into valleys away from highways, unseen by most visitors." He added that Nevada's farmers grow most of the garlic seed used to produce California's world-famous garlic. Potatoes grown in Nevada find their way into products sold around the world. Nevada even has a small but growing organic farming industry. As Nevada's farms and cities grow closer together, Agriculture Week encourages producers of aoricultura! products and the consumers of those products to grow closei" together as well.
