I am writing to you, regarding the house on La Luna Avenue. In my neighborhood, between Montoya Road and Two Mile Road there is a house on Two Mile Road. Ever since the owner died in 2007, the house was left abandoned. It’s been a complete eyesore and fire hazard and it’s been broken into so…

Before I’m stoned in the village square for the snippet of my testimony that was quoted (“Airstream hotel gets OK from county,” article published Oct. 5), allow me to reiterate the unquoted portion. Yes, given human inevitabilities I’m reluctantly for smart development (projects that are env…

I read with great interest the editorial submitted by John-Paul Leonard. As the county supervisor for the Morongo Basin, I’ve worked with passionate community members on both sides of this debate to craft an ordinance that addresses the concerns of everyone involved. However, there is a sign…

The Joshua Basin Water District provides water to Joshua Tree, where I lived for 13 years until 2016. I kept my house there and enjoyed visiting. I terminated all utilities except electricity.

When it comes to climate change, a determined 16-year-old from Sweden has more wisdom and sense of urgency than the controlling policy makers of the United States. The United Nations secretary general recently stated: “Governments will follow public opinion … sooner or later.” He calls globa…

And we thought our toddler-tempered, toilet-time-tweeting, truth- trashing Trump couldn’t “sink” any lower. Behold! We now witness real collusion: asking a foreign leader to “dig up dirt” on political rival Joe Biden.

In these times, where we have watched all the power plays made by Republicans across the country visa vie gerrymandering, voter suppression and outright corrupt practice to subvert our democracy, I personally witnessed the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors pull off this Brown Act vi…

Today’s announcement that Congressman Cook will not seek re-election presents the people of his district with a dilemma. Since he has not been seen here, held a town hall meeting for four years or responded to letters to his Washington address for at least three, how will we know he has gone?

I’ve just finished an article from a rival local newspaper (the Desert Sun) stating that the NTSB urged Caltrans to work faster to repair damages to safety structures on our roadways. The metal cushions at the ends of concrete center dividers are called attenuators. It seems that one on High…

The state of California requires that I maintain a minimum level of liability insurance on my vehicle. I completely agree but the state makes this requirement, then abandons me to the tender mercies of the private insurance companies. Since it’s the state that requires liability insurance, I…
