Women deserve respect, no matter their job choice

As a mother and retired professional educator I was frustrated and saddened by Sam Romeo's letter to the Journal of May 13. He blames women for not respecting mothers. Well, let's blame the victim. Women in America are coming into their strengths finally as being capable of a vast array of abilities, which do not necessarily include giving birth. Presenting the "business world" as a seductive attraction and glamorous must give the non-union woman clerk a shock. Where is that seduction? Where the glamour?

I’m blessed my wife is a professional mother

As Mother's Day approaches I want to share my views of what the day means to me. I want to put the celebration in the context of my marriage of 56 years to my college sweetheart. When we met, her goal was to become a teacher; mine was to become a physician.

With the drought ending for the most part in this part of California, agriculture will have enough water once again to produce its bounty and prove farming is the economic base of the valley.

Access to affordable health care is life-saving

As a volunteer with the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, I hear many stories from cancer patients and caregivers, including my high school coach's son. He was starting a new job and didn't have insurance when he was diagnosed with cancer. Before the Affordable Care Act, he would have been denied insurance coverage due to a pre-existing illness and would have been on his own to finance an expensive fight against cancer. He recently underwent surgery to remove part of his spine and the rest of three ribs and will have to travel to undergo proton radiation ...
