    Fishy claims by Nunes

    In a recent public comment, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Visalia, made the claim that the San Joaquin River salmon runs were long gone before Friant Dam was built. This is hogwash.

    Turkey's not a friend

    Somebody please explain this sick love affair/obsession the U.S. has with Turkey. At the beginning of the Iraq invasion a decade ago, it closed the southern border to U.S. forces seeking entry into Iraq; then, recently, they staged the sarin gas attack in Syria, hoping the U.S. would see it as an...

    Fresno's poor classrooms

Nunes condones the torture of horses. I believe this is a misunderstanding that can be corrected. PAST stands for Prevent All ...

    Check recycling rules

    When I received my last Clovis water bill, there was a green sheet of paper telling you to recycle and what goes in the garbage. Everyone, please read this. For example, I could not believe shredded paper goes in the garbage. Plastic bags go in the garbage and so on. I've been doing it wrong for...

    Perea, Olsen oppose progress

    It is shameful that our region, which is experiencing the worst and most dire effects of groundwater over-pumping (communities with no running water, towns sinking, infrastructure damage) is represented by legislators who have chosen to use their position to oppose improving the way in which we ...
