  • Who was Jesus?

    Updated Apr 21, 2022

    Dr. Rick Koole LifePointe Church This month hundreds of millions of Christians around the world will celebrate Easter. It is a day set aside to commemorate a time two thousand years ago when Jesus, who was God’s son in human flesh, lived a life without sin, was crucified, buried, and after three days rose from the dead. One of the most important questions each of us must grapple with is “who exactly was Jesus?” Thousands of books have tackled this question but let me share a very brief look at the first three verses in the B...

  • Re: 'The true cost of electric vehicles' [Village News, Letter, 4/1/22]

    Updated Apr 14, 2022

    I felt compelled to respond to Judy Willis’ letter, because of the "fooled by this EV propaganda" line. How many decades have the fossil fuel industry been putting out propaganda? It has been denying the effects of their products on the climate and pollution. I attempted to fact check your mining numbers but could not find a good source for this info. But what I did find was still worse than I expected. Unethically sourced materials are indeed a problem. This happens more in poor countries than wealthy ones, but it happens e...

  • California's Nazi propaganda

    Updated Apr 14, 2022

    Yes! America is in its final days, but we still have time to save the greatest nation on earth. California is another story. With the theft of Newsom's recall election, we are all doomed. A few weeks ago, The Village News printed a large size "wake-up" call of what Sacramento is trying to pass in congress, titled Sacramento "Vaccine Work Group" Bills. You need to read this Nazi propaganda. SB 871 would mandate the CCP vaccine for all kids, in school or child care, so basically regardless of age. So even if I home school or...

    Imagine a 25% tax to sell your home? Assemblymember Christopher M. Ward of California’s 78th District, which is from Solana Beach to Imperial Beach, is the author of Assembly Bill 1771. It was co-authored by Assemblymember Kevin Mullin of California’s 22nd District, which is South San Francisco and South San Francisco Bay.

  • Did NATO push Ukraine into war?

    Updated Apr 14, 2022

    Harold Pease, Ph. D. Special to Village News There are at least two sides to every story, globalists own all six of the major news outlets, thus, mostly globalist news is presented in America. When censorship prevails, there exists but one side. The Deep State media still refuse to share two important aspects of the Ukrainian / Russian story, Ukraine’s connection to the New World Order and NATO’s roll in provoking Russia. As to the first, http://www.LibertyUnderfire.com formally published, “Putin is Destroying the New World...

  • Affordable housing

    Updated Apr 14, 2022

    Supervisor Jim Desmond 5th District Seniors, generally on fixed incomes, are the fastest-growing population in North County and we must do all we can to help them with the rising prices of electricity, gas and housing. In recent weeks, I’ve sent letters to the state asking for gas and electricity relief, with the $45 billion surplus. While that’s only one part of the equation, another major factor is the cost of housing. It’s no secret there is a major need for affordable housing in San Diego County. Many families are being...

  • California's budget process

    Updated Apr 14, 2022

    Assemblymember Marie Waldron District 75 Under California’s constitution, the Legislature must produce a balanced budget by June 15, and it has to be signed into law no later than June 30. Expenditures over the coming fiscal year are expected to be around $286 billion. Drafting a budget for a state larger than most countries is a monumental task. California’s constitution requires the Governor to introduce a budget by Jan. 10. That proposal is analyzed by the nonpartisan Legislative Analyst’s Office, which forwards its analy...

  • Re: 'Is America in her final days?' [Maynard letters, Village News, 4/7/22]

    Updated Apr 14, 2022

    The answer to the author’s rhetorical question is still a resounding no! But rather than deconstructing his denigration of the Democratic Party and many of its minority members, I offer this challenge: name one bill, proposed by Republicans since 2016, that would have significantly aided working class Americans. What are Republican state legislatures doing? Job No. 1 appears to be criminalizing abortion: the avowed intent is to “save the babies.” That sounds good; does eliminating legal abortion actually save babies? No, b...

  • Ortega organizes Antonio Garra Day event

    Updated Apr 14, 2022

  • Open your eyes to the dangers of distracted driving

    Updated Apr 14, 2022

    SACRAMENTO – Any time drivers take their eyes off the road to look at or use a phone, they are driving blind. For example, looking down at a cellphone to read a text takes a driver’s eyes off the road for an average of five seconds – at 55 mph, that is the equivalent of driving the length of a 300-foot football field without looking. As part of April’s Distracted Driving Awareness Month, the California Highway Patrol, California Office of Traffic Safety, and Impact Teen Drivers are working together to increase educati...
