  • Re: 'Worker of the Week' [Village News, 5/4/23]

    Updated Jun 8, 2023

    I feel compelled to write this letter in response to something that was in the May 4 Village News. I am speaking about the “Worker of the Week” given to Jesus Christ. It is unconscionable that you would put something like this in what is supposed to be an “unbiased” newspaper that has a job to report the news, not only locally, but also news of the world. This is wrong on so many levels that I almost don’t know where to begin. First of all, the hubris of thinking that everyone in town believes the same thing and...

  • The road to socialism

    Updated Jun 7, 2023

    Supervisor Jim Desmond 5th District We continue to hear politicians tout buzzwords like equality and equity, as a way to lift people out of poverty. Blame the rich to help the poor, and you’ll continue to get reelected. Yet, as we’ve seen throughout history, countries that have prioritized this socialist point of view have crushed the middle class, creating large chasms between the rich and poor. The word socialism is thrown around flippantly in today's society, yet two proposals, one from the State of California and anot...

  • Dear Senator Jones …

    Updated Jun 7, 2023

    I strongly urge you and your State Senate colleagues to vociferously condemn and refuse to participate in the California Senate’s plan to “honor” the bigoted anti-Catholic minstrel performers known as the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. These so-called performers hearken back to the dark days of the Jim Crow Era minstrel shows that routinely demeaned and caricatured Black Americans, all in the name of performance art. If anything, a strong case could be made that the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence is a de facto hate...

  • The assault on women's rights in sports today

    Updated Jun 7, 2023

    There seems to be no end to the superfluous attacks on our freedoms as our nation plunges headfirst into this Marxist morass.
