Economic two-step is getting old fast

On the front page of Wednesday's paper, there was a story about an open house at a new business in town and right next to it was a report on the number of unemployed in the county, which increased to 15.6 in the month of January. Along with the not-so-great news of increased unemployment, was the announcement that Post is closing its Modesto plant and laying off 140 workers.

State water decision would leave Valley hanging dry

But that does not give bureaucrats the justification to decimate the San Joaquin Valley to divert water from some areas to give even more water to others.

From a nation of risk takers to a nation of litigators

A baseball fan turns away from the action at a minor league game in Idaho to chat with a friend. Suddenly, the crowd around him starts yelling. He turns back toward the field and is hit in the eye with a foul ball. Ultimately he loses vision in the eye. He sues.

Time to restore a rusting practice

It's commonplace to be familiar with those particularly disgruntled folks who breathe a sigh of relief at the end of each Valentine's Day. However, if there is one typical feature of Valentine's Day that we should take care to continue, it is writing meaningful cards and letters.

Conserving water is a group effort

The worst drought in most of our lifetimes has focused attention on how all Californians use, conserve and recycle water. Three years of historically dry winters - and no assurance that the next one will be any better - require each of us to examine how we can preserve this precious resource.

Bridging the valley of death

As a child, I learned about the "valley of the shadow of death" from the 23 Psalm. A similar image is conjured up by economists who talk about the "valley of death." They mean that potentially deadly stage in the life of a business when production needs to be massively scaled up but investors aren't willing to make that leap based only on pilot-scale results or because the economics of full-scale production are still iffy. One segment of the young biofuels industry is approaching that valley.
