    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...

    Cut taxes to create jobs

    It is apparent that our federal and state governments have reached their maximum allowable tax rates. Dozens of large U.S. and California corporations are moving their operations overseas and to out-of-state locations where taxes and regulations are significantly less than half of what they are ...

    Support high-speed rail

    Fresno County Board of Supervisors, please support California's high-speed rail system. I am tired of elected officials in the San Joaquin Valley standing in the way of progress. Opposition from our elected officials is embarrassing. The Valley desperately needs to diversify its economic base. Agriculture...

    Unanswered questions

    Who are these thousands of "illegal" children Americans are so concerned about? What is their age range? Do they come from families? Did their adult caretakers send them here alone? What was the intended outcome? Were their families to follow them? Where? Are thousands of mothers and fathers casting...

    Getting rid of leaf blowers

    As a small step towards better air quality and consideration to your neighbors, leaf blowers (and similar equipment which only blows stuff around) should be banned. Yes, leaf blowers are effective to "herd" stuff but unfortunately they kick up dust and move the stuff onto the streets and neighbors...

    Other side of Gaza story

    Opposing Israel's attacks on the people of Gaza is the moral thing to do! U.S. tax dollars provide vast sums of military aid to Israel. News stories in the U.S. overwhelmingly report current events from Israel's point of view by giving voice to its leaders and allowing them to portray the Palestinians...
