  • Kicking It at 55 mph

    Updated Jul 1, 2022

    Elizabeth Youngman-Westphal Special to The Village News Do you recall “service stations”? What I clearly remember is when I’d drive in alongside a gas pump, an attendant would sprint out as I lowered the driver’s window and ask, ever so politely, what grade of fuel I wanted? After removing the gas cap to insert the nozzle he’d bop around to raise the hood and check the oil. And then he’d wash all of the car windows. Every service station, everywhere, offered that service. But in the mid-1970’s, the oil crisis caused servic...

  • Visit with oral surgeon was wonderful

    Updated Jul 1, 2022

    I want to share with you a wonderful experience I had a few weeks ago when I had serious dental issues that I had to deal with and was told that I needed to see an oral surgeon to do the surgery. I am 80 years old and on a blood thinner, so I was very concerned about having the procedure done. Dr. Christensen Sicat Hsu of SicatHSU Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery in River Village in Bonsall was recommended to me. I made an appointment to see her and went to discuss my concerns and what needed to be done. She spent a great deal of...

  • Civil rights are expanding to the unborn

    Updated Jul 1, 2022

    In now post Roe v. Wade America, it should be imperative that an innocent unborn baby have just a fraction of the due process rights that a heinous convicted serial killer or terrorist routinely gets while waiting on death row for 20 years, or 30 years, or longer. Is it so out of the question to have even a splinter of the due process guaranteed to even a condemned vicious murderer, during an unborn baby’s first nine months inside of his/her mother’s womb? Some reasonable due process and legal considerations should not be...

  • Pro-life clinics provide choice for women who need help

    Updated Jul 1, 2022

    Julie Reeder Publisher The overturning of Roe v Wade was a big deal. I get that people who believe abortion is murder of a human being are happy that at least laws regulating this procedure are relegated back to the individual states. Abortion rights in California will not be affected and we will probably become an abortion tourism state with growth in the number of clinics up and down the state. And, I would imagine our tax dollars will probably go to subsidize the abortions of people from other states. However, a huge...

  • Cut the Gas Tax already

    Updated Jul 1, 2022

    Assemblymember Marie Waldron 75th District California still has the highest gasoline prices in the U.S. along with the highest gas taxes. Gasoline is averaging $6.40 per gallon across California, inflation is escalating, people are hurting.
