I spend anywhere from $80 to $120 a week at Target now that I do a good chunk of my grocery shopping there.
HANFORD - Dairy farmers in these parts – and the rest of California for that matter – do not operate in a fantasy world.
For years, the folks of Weneedjobsville believed in Santanomics.
I'm not usually one to prattle on about the supposed deterioration of society. It's my belief that only those over 40 exhort the "good old days" and they do so in an effort to avoid any change. I don't know if it's because I turned 40 last month, or that society has actually started its downward fall, in either case, I'm going to give my first "good old days" tirade.

Los Angeles, in its present form, should not exist.
I am not a Luddite.
I was standing around at the dedication of a new veterans' memorial the other day, in city hall and not too far from the "wall" the city hall installed a couple years ago - the wall being a bulletin board where you can post pictures of your boy or girl overseas.
There were almost 4.5 million dog bites in the United States during 2012.
The emperor has no clothes.
Look up in the sky. It's a bird. It's a plane. No, it's...
Getting in the room to see the doctor is the hardest part. That is what I hear most often from the tens of thousands of Central Valley veterans. Long wait times for appointments and lengthy commutes prevent them from accessing the care that they have earned through their service. In Turlock, a veteran looking for specialty care faces a 90 mile journey to the nearest full service Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Palo Alto.
