Too much of a good thing

Three weeks ago there was a wonderful fundraiser for the Turlock Animal Shelter held at Sunnyview Dog Park. Dozens of dog owners came to support the shelter by participating in a 5K dog walk. After the walk, many people stayed to visit the pet-centered vendor booths - and play in the off-leash area of the park.

A Republican fighting for education funding? It’s true

This past week, the state Capitol was flooded with teachers from all over the state who are concerned about the future of public education in California. They're worried because California's persistent budget crisis has led to boom-bust budgeting for schools, which rely in large part on state funds to keep teachers in the classroom. And the recent economic downturn means more and more teachers are receiving pink slips come March 15.

Glad to be reporting north of the border

Being a journalist isn't easy. Despite the popularity of social networking sites and the proliferation of blogging every detail of one's daily life, most people still don't like talking to the press. And getting information from public officials is oftentimes daunting.

The essence of education

With the world metamorphosing, it's no surprise that young children need to be implanted with the seeds of concept, consciousness, and charm needed for tomorrow.

The other big news about Osama

The big news is not that Osama bin Laden is dead. I mean, that is certainly big news, but a guy in hiding who has a record price tag on his head is not exactly an effective leader of a revolutionary movement. The big news, at least by my lights, is that Americans waving flags seem to be the biggest demonstrations going on.

Hope for a new beginning

Nearly a decade ago, America launched a "War on terror." It's almost hard to remember Sept. 16, 2001, when then-President George W. Bush uttered that fateful phrase for the very first time.

Now it’s our turn

You probably have a favorite tree-lined street in your community. Or a tree-filled neighborhood you've always admired. Or a favorite forest where you like to bask in the beauty of the trees.

Amazing Grace

While listening to the haunting bagpipes of "Amazing Grace" during an April 9 memorial service honoring Pfc. Jeremy Faulkner in Jonesboro, Ga., I realized I had no idea what the 1779 song's famous lyrics, written by John Newton, actually meant. Faulkner's pastor, family, friends and fellow soldiers, who filled the huge church to capacity, helped clarify the beloved hymn's resonance.

Days of disappointment

It's that time of year again, the time of year when high school seniors who have done everything right their whole lives discover that it wasn't good enough to get them into the colleges they dreamed of attending. Ditto for college seniors applying to graduate school.

Saving California is worth the journey

You may have read in recent news that I am leading a bipartisan delegation of California Legislators to Texas in just a few days. I am doing it because our state is in economic crisis and it is time to pull our heads out of the sand. California is a beautiful state. My father was a developer who helped build it. I grew up here and made a life as a realtor. I helped families find homes here for thirty years. It's a state I love and would give my life for.

April means that Tax Day is just around the corner. For those folks who are working – or scrambling – to meet the deadline, you should know that you have until April 18 this year. But even if you have already filed, you might be wondering how last the bipartisan tax cut compromise reached last December affects you and your family.

General Electric and the death of American outrage

If there was a funeral notice, I missed it. No obituary appeared in any of my daily papers. But make no mistake about it: In the spring of 2011 in the United States of America, our collective sense of moral outrage must now be officially dead.

Poisson d’avril

Hopefully, everyone reading this column successfully made it through another April Fool's Day. It is difficult for me to have any serious conversation on the first day of April because I'm always worried that I will be made a fool in the end.
