  • Globally, maternal mortality rate has declined

    Updated Sep 23, 2016

    That includes California as well. That’s the good news. The bad news is, that as a whole, America’s rate increased to 21 percent. This is from a study in the September Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology covering the period 2000-2014. The horrible news: Texas maternal deaths per 100,000 births rose to 23.8 in 2014 from 18.8 in 2000 – or about 27 percent. For comparison, the rate in France was only 8 and in Germany 7 (CIA World Factbook, 1 January 2014). The study authors attribute much, but not all, of the increase in Texas...

  • 9-11 Remembrance Ceremony not seen

    Updated Sep 23, 2016

    I wish to commend the Fallbrook Chamber, the contributors and participants for a heart warming presentation remembering the events of 9-11-01. The only thing missing was the attendance; where were the people? It seems that people have grown complacent to that so very important event, 9-11-01, that has changed life as we know it in the USA, that a pledge to never forget has gone by the wayside. My emotions were shattered when I counted the attendance and came up with a total of 18 people other than the participants. Bob...

  • A Roadmap of Priority

    Updated Sep 23, 2016

    Assemblymember Marie Waldron AD – 75 (R) Tired of sitting in backlogged traffic on the I-15 or just trying to get your kids to school and then to work? California’s population has almost doubled since the 1970s, but our highway system has not kept pace and must be upgraded to keep our people moving and our economy humming. That is why our caucus introduced a nine-point, $6.6 billion plan to fund transportation infrastructure and fix our roads with existing resources. Our state has the fifth-highest fuel tax in the nat...

  • Fall is a great time to mulch

    Updated Sep 23, 2016

    LONDONDERRY, NH – Tree owners often feel compelled to spray, prune or apply something to their trees and landscape plants on a regular basis. But, unless there is a specific reason to spray, prune or apply things to landscape trees, the best thing to "do" to keep trees healthy is apply a layer of composted mulch. "Fall is a great time to be out in the yard spreading shovels-full of composted woodchip mulch under your trees," said Tchukki Andersen, BCMA, CTSP* and staff a...

  • Hell or High Water, an uncommon bank heist story

    Updated Sep 23, 2016

    Ian Murdock Special to the Village News When I first read the synopsis of the film Hell or High Water – having not even seen the previews – I thought to myself, this looks like a goldmine. In anticipation of seeing it, I read a couple of reviews from big national newspapers. Both ranked it a one hundred – and I can't recall seeing that happen before, or very often. I also noted that it was the same writer as Sicario – which arguably ranks as one of the finest drug cartel...
