More communication, please

It was quite a surprise when we started getting a lot of kids coming in our (downtown) store looking for their Halloween candy. We were told by the city that there was not going to be anything going on this year. It seems that the powers of city hall don't want to keep the shops informed. I guess we don't count.

Back up the train, for the economy's sake

Is congressional candidate Jose Hernandez's support of the $96 billion high-speed rail boondoggle a sign that he doesn't grasp that California and Washington are both derailing the economy through deficit spending? Consultants alone have cost upwards of $12 million. Potential private investors consider the project too risky.

We need to know what's in our food

Lowering gas prices and putting our nation on a path to energy independence

In the last week alone Californians have seen gas prices skyrocket to a state-wide average of $4.67 per gallon - a state record and currently the highest in the nation.

White House, Congress failing to live up to responsibilities

According to dictionary.com a popular definition of sequestration is removal or separation.

Everyone has the right to freedom of speech

Several weeks ago, we decided to show support for the presidential candidate of our choice by placing a yard sign in our front yard. The night before last, someone tagged it by spray painting a red circle with a line through it on both sides of the sign.

We don’t need another green politician

While putting gas into my car today at $4.82/gal, I started thinking about congressional candidate Jose Hernandez. The last thing we need is another green politician in public office.

Reflections on 9/11

Eleven years ago, on the clear morning of September 11th, 2001, the men and women that went to work at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and those that boarded United flights 93 and 175, and American Airlines flights 11 and 77, did not know the tragic fate that lay before them.
