  • A bag that holds no privacy

    Lorene Morris, Special to the Village News|Updated Jul 10, 2024

    One of my favorite primetime series is "This Is Us." It depicts the Pearson family's triumphs, troubles, and tight bonds. Its heartwarming drama captured many hearts. For me, one episode stands out: "The Death of Jack Pearson." He dies suddenly and unexpectedly. His wife, Rebecca, breaks down. Alone and devastated, she receives his belongings in a plastic bag and walks down the hallway to leave the hospital. The scene is barren, without comfort or compassion. In a word,...

  • Re: 'Trump committed serious crimes and should not be president again' and 'Trump must be held accountable for his crimes against our country' [Village News, Letters, 6/27/24]

    Updated Jul 10, 2024

    Two letters in the June 27 issue of the Village News opinion section were remarkable for their similarities. Both rehashed the usual theme of Donald Trump being a convicted felon who will end "our democracy" and take away our freedom to vote – nothing new there. One letter is authored by "Todd Musto," the second letter's author is "Maria Goodrich." These two letters are so alike in length, verbiage, and left-wing cliches that if I didn't know better, one could be the rough draft of the other. Some examples of the coincidences...

  • Defending the Second Amendment – An essential fight

    Updated Jul 10, 2024

    In a significant legal move, the National Rifle Association has chosen to challenge the state of California's newly imposed excise tax on guns and ammunition. This action, led by the NRA, is not just a matter of contesting a financial imposition but a vital stand for upholding our Second Amendment rights. The excise tax in question places an undue financial burden on law-abiding gun owners and enthusiasts, effectively penalizing responsible citizens who are exercising their constitutional freedoms. These financial strains...

  • The misguided notion of reparations in California

    Julie Reeder, Publisher|Updated Jul 10, 2024

    California is a state that never legalized slavery. Gov. Newsom and his supermajority have approved $12 million in a budget with a $50 Billion deficit for reparations. I may be wrong, but this seems to me to be a decision that is not only historically misplaced but also financially irresponsible, considering the state’s dire economic situation. First, I think it’s important to acknowledge that California never practiced slavery. While there has been injustice in the past every...
