  • What are those charity 'seals' of transparency?

    Updated Jan 12, 2024

    Jean Larsen Legacy Endowment Community Foundation It’s quite the statement to say, for more than 200 years, philanthropy has played a major role in American history. Consider just one example, the Smithsonian Institute, the world’s largest research, education and museum complex named for James Smithson, 1764-1829. His estate plan, 192 years ago, contained a generous bequest to “…create an establishment in Washington D.C. for the increase and diffusion of knowledge.” Today, 21 museums, a zoo and all manners of education and re...

  • Looking back at 2023

    Updated Jan 11, 2024

    After another insufferable year living under the boot of President Joe Biden’s autocratic administration, our futures have never looked more precarious. War is raging in the Middle East; Ukrainians are hopelessly mired in a battle of attrition with the Russians, and the Chinese Communist Party is threatening to invade Taiwan. Biden is to blame for the rising global hostilities. His aversion to conflict and hesitancy to intervene in world affairs in any meaningful way stems from his financial entanglements with rogue nations ...

  • Kicking It in winter

    Elizabeth Youngman-Westphal, Special to The Village News|Updated Jan 11, 2024

    Winter is here and here are some clues. Well, for one thing, the best persimmon crop we’ve ever had ripened. Which explains why there is a murder of crows hovering near her treetop for two. And three, her leaves have turned to a rich jewel tone as they lay at her feet like an Arabian carpet. Similar to other world class locales, this village is situated a few balmy degrees above the 30th parallel. Or in sailor speak, due west and south of Gibraltar and the Spanish border, n...

  • Border visit

    Superviser Jim Desmond, 5th District|Updated Jan 11, 2024

    I wanted to update you on the immigration crisis, which continues to overwhelm our Border Patrol agents and cause a major strain on our local resources. Last week, I visited the border and migrant encampments in Jacumba. The chaos continues with dozens of people camped out, waiting for the Border Patrol to take them to a resource center, paid for by county taxpayers. While I was there, I saw a suburban speed towards the fence on the Mexico side, drop off about a dozen people, and rush away. The migrants then walked through...

  • Economic Report Card

    Assemblymember Marie Waldron, 75th District|Updated Jan 11, 2024

These efforts have continued throughout my time in the Legislature, and I am very proud that my voting record last year put me at the top of the California Chamber of Commerce’s (CalChamber) list of pro-business Assemblymembers. Last year, I was joined by only four of my colleagues (...

  • January 6th was just the beginning for Trump

    Updated Jan 11, 2024

    Three years ago, a violent mob, incited by then-President Trump and his allies in Congress, attacked the U.S. Capitol to try and stop the peaceful transfer of power for the first time in American history.

But even as he faces multiple indictments for this criminal conspiracy he led, Trump is still running for president in 2024. If e...
