  • California law already allows abortion

    Updated Oct 13, 2022

    Despite some hysterical negative public reaction to the recent Supreme Court decision regarding abortion, that court did not stop legal abortions in California. The court said that, according to the United States Constitution, the states are the proper place for this issue to be decided. California law still allows abortion for about the first six months of pregnancy. The current limit on abortions comes with the law that says if the child would be able to live on its own with medical help, being “viable,” that abortion wou...

  • Planning group is being divided

    Updated Oct 13, 2022

    I am writing today to express my concern over the invasion of division in our community representation. Like the rest of the nation, it appears to have become partisan which never occurred during my tenure of eight years as a planning group member. There was a hint of it with the newly elected on the planning group of 2020. I passed it off due to lack of knowledge of the purpose of the planning group. There are 15 elected members in this group. Often seats are filled with no contest, only 15 running. That has always been OK;...

  • The rise of the deep state snakes

    Updated Oct 13, 2022

    Jefferson warned us about the encroachment of our civil liberties by Federalist zealots who favored federal rights over individual and states' rights. This extraordinary American visionary and author of the Declaration of Independence predicted nearly 250 years ago that, left to their own devices, the Federalists would move heaven and earth to satisfy their factious inclinations, personal ambitions, and affinity for advancing the bureaucratic state. Jefferson believed self-governance emanates from the consent of the people,...

  • Addressing fire safety

    Updated Oct 13, 2022

    Supervisor Jim Desmond 5th District Living in San Diego County, the threat of fires is constant, that is why I have made fire safety one of my top priorities during my time on the Board of Supervisors. We’ve initiated efforts to come up with a pre-fire strategy and evacuation routes. I’ve led the effort to increase roadside vegetation management, especially along major evacuation corridors. Plus, earlier this year, we were able to acquire a twin-engine helicopter, which is able to fight fires at night. At last week’s Board...

  • Supporting animals

    Updated Oct 13, 2022

    Assemblymember Marie Waldron 75th District As a trained Project Wildlife Native Songbird Rehabilitator, my experience raising orphaned and injured songbirds and returning them to the wild has guided me in legislation I introduce and support. I’m happy to report that most of that legislation has been signed into law. The “Beagle Freedom Bill,” which I co-authored, requires research institutions that use dogs or cats to offer those animals for adoption. I also co-authored legislation that indemnifies good Samaritans who break...

  • Re: 'Questions needing answers' [Village News, Terrell letter, 10/06/22]

    Updated Oct 13, 2022

    Mr. Terrell, in your recent letter to the Fallbrook Village News, you wrote, “A fetus is not a person, any more than a chicken egg is a chicken…” You continued on to state “...abortion is not muder.” I was appalled that you are unaware of basic scientific facts. Female homo sapiens have, within their bodies, eggs that are eliminated monthly unless the egg is fertilized. Once fertilized, life begins inside the egg. A new human being has been created. A chicken egg, unless fertilized, will never be a chicken. Most people le...
