    Let's get this rail moving

    Imagine that there is no interstate highway system. Not even local highways like 99, 41, 168 or 180. Imagine that there was no rural electrification project in the 20th century. Many would still be without electricity. Imagine there are no airports, no railroad system crisscrossing the nation. No...

    Help for our children first

    America can no longer create enough jobs for our population. Every day we lose job opportunities through impossible environmental requirements and anti-business tax policies. Job-generating corporations are choosing to locate or relocate to any country except the United States. Robots are eliminating...

    'Dumping ground' facts

    I read the July 19 letter stating that because of Fresno's low cost of living the illegal immigrants being shipped to California will end up here. I thought that doesn't seem logical. So I did what I usually do when someone makes a statement like that: I did some research.

    Cost of rescuing hiker

    Thank God, Mr. Gregg Hein, the Kings Canyon National Park "lone backcountry hiker" was found alive! For that I'm thankful. Marek Warszawski's Bee column July 18 stated some thoughts "based on (his) 25 years of hiking, scrambling, and climbing in the Sierra Nevada." Don't hike or backpack alone in...

    News anchor Walter Cronkite in 1966 told Time magazine something that's still true: "The networks, including my own, do a first-rate job of disseminating the news, but all of them have third-rate news-gathering organizations. We are still basically dependent on the wire services. We have barely ...

    Corporate tax shell games

    News: U.S. citizens change citizenship to a foreign country to lower their state and federal income taxes. U.S. tax laws say it's legal. What's your reaction? "It's unfair to the rest of us. There ought to be a law."

    Drought surcharge next?

    Fremont recently instituted watering restrictions similar to the new rules for the city of Fresno. After a decline in revenue from lower water usage, Fremont added a "drought surcharge" to everyone's water bill. Is this what we have to look forward to?

    Response to VA editorial

    Your editorial "Add another problem to list facing the next VA secretary" on July 3 creates a wildly false impression founded on a litany of inaccuracies. You base your damning verdict on for-profit schools that serve our nation's veterans on a single report that has already come under fire.

    Say no to high-speed rail

    Congratulations to Fresno Supervisors if they rescind their support of the high-speed rail. Informed board leaders (Debbie Poochigian, Judy Case McNairy, Phil Larson) recognize the 2008 approved Proposition ($9.9 billion) has increased to $68 billion and growing. The rail authority has not responded...
