Letter on militarized police

First, the so-called “militarization” of police departments did not start with the U.S. government. It started in the 1960s with municipal agencies, Delano PD, […]

Common Core Chapter 4: Group projects and conditioning

EDITOR: Does anyone else remember group projects in school? They were a pain in the rear end. You always had the slacker, the arguer and others that made it a pain to complete. Someone always had to step up and carry the group and sometimes that was off a cliff to a low grade. With […]

Letter on militarized police

I did a mental facepalm when I read a recent letter about the so-called “militarized police” that we should all be afraid of.

My turn: Small business in the crosshairs

When Charles Lindbergh needed a plane to carry him across the Atlantic, he had a lot of choices. Back then America was dotted with small aircraft manufacturers, start-ups inventing a brand new industry as they went along. Lindbergh settled on Ryan Airlines in San Diego, which designed and built the Spirit of St. Louis in […]

We can wait

Here’s another President Obama “We can’t wait” boondoggle. The administration is going to spend as much as $1 billion “to hire, train and deploy health care workers,” according to a Washington Post story. That’s part of his jobs bill. This money will be given as grants to “doctors, community groups, local government and other organizations […]
