  • Re: 'At Albertsons, sure, bring your dog(s)!' [Village News, Letter, 08/25/22]

    Updated Sep 1, 2022

    This has been a problem for years and I’m so glad people are finally speaking up. Before all you trolls jump on the dog hater wagon let me say that I love animals too and have had many pets over my lifetime. I am not entitled and choose not to let them infringe upon others. Your so-called “support” dogs are supposed to be on the ground on a leash, not in the cart where I put my food or my purse. At the beginning of the CCP virus, when it was proven that animals can carry the virus as well as humans, there were no restrictions...

  • It's our job to be skeptical – it doesn't make us "worse than Nazis"

    Updated Sep 1, 2022

    Julie Reeder Publisher This week I've been reminded again of the value of each of our jobs we have in the community, our connection to one another, our responsibility to contribute something and our need to be a small piece of the whole village ecosystem.

  • Responding to John H. Terrell's ongoing letters

    Updated Sep 1, 2022

    I think I will use the liberal actor Alec Baldwin as an example, since he has similar beliefs as J.H.T. Take the Rust shooting incident on Oct. 21, 2021, with actor Baldwin. He said on a T.V. interview, he only pulled the hammer back. He did not pull the trigger and would never point a gun at anyone. Also he said someone is to blame for the shooting, but it’s not him. Let’s break this down a little. There were many safety violations on the set, including using the guns for the movie with live ammo for target practice. We mus...

    Updated Sep 1, 2022

    I will refer to the author of the subject letter above as simply “the author.” The author is “anxiously awaiting” my report on the “carnage” at our southern border.

Also, among other things, Trump called the illegals crossing the border “animals, criminals, and rapists.” Again, not supported by the facts. Here are some documented facts. “Co...

  • Restoring California's failing mental health programs

    Updated Sep 1, 2022

    Assemblymember Marie Waldron 75th District California’s mental health system is struggling to keep up with demand. Those seriously in need of treatment are trapped in a rotating cycle that takes them from living on the street, to the emergency room, sometimes to jail, then back to the street. Since more serious cases get the most attention, people with milder symptoms don’t receive needed care and often fall into the same cycle. Today, only about a third of Californians with mental illness receive the care they need, and 31...
