Our water future is at a critical crossroads

Arguments between local governments and individual farmers over the sale, transfer, and local usage of water are all too familiar. Some districts oppose efforts to transfer water out of basins or across county lines. Some irrigation districts oppose city plans to sell wastewater to other irrigation districts. But regardless of where you stand on these specific disputes, all of us in the Valley must work together in unity to confront the single largest threat to our economy, our farms, and our way of life since the dams were constructed.

State board should support responsible plan for New Melones, Stanislaus River

There is no way to get around the human, environmental and financial consequences of a fourth consecutive drought year in water-starved California. We have seen it in the fallowed fields on the west side of the Southern San Joaquin Valley and the economic devastation in that region.

Glad to be living in the Golden State

I'm ashamed to call myself a Hoosier. Not since Indiana native and then Vice President of the United States of America Dan Quayle used fictional television character Murphy Brown as an example of the evils of single motherhood have I felt so ashamed of my Indiana roots.

Shopping for healthcare isn’t like buying computers

Imagine a world where you could shop for medical procedures the way you shop for computers. Most likely, price is near the top of your list when you're looking for a new computer.
