Out Loud: The good side

It’s not all complaints from people who don’t like the facts you print or that you print both sides of their controversy. There really are many feel-good times in the running a small-town newspaper. For example, every day we get to see the good things that people are doing for our community — sometimes as […]

Severe flash flood warning

The mountain burn areas around Idyllwild and Pine Cove will be especially susceptible to heavy rain and flooding this afternoon according to a National Weather Service weather warning issued minutes ago.

Out Loud: An inconvenience

My one good hand’s fingertips will be worn out by the time we finish this week’s paper — maybe even by the time I finish this column. My left is wrapped in a brace and dangling in a sling like a newborn puppy — without the cuteness. This all started in February when overcompensating for […]

Out loud: Both sides …

Sometimes operating a local newspaper feels like a game of Whac-A-Mole — no matter what hole you peek out of someone’s waiting there with a mallet. Take the current subject of IFPD, for example. Some folk strongly oppose IFPD’s continued existence, wanting to replace it with Cal Fire. They may not get why the TC […]

Out Loud: Jazz chair needed …

Jazz in the Pines goers experience a different idea of the festival than community members. The visitors enjoy extraordinary music and a relaxed ease that comes from the meandering festival layout, floating parachutes, artistic vendors and wafting scents of roasting almonds, Thai food and barbecue, among other delights. They probably also notice, because they can’t […]
