Opinion: A 4-legged Christmas Wish list

For Santa, readers and Honorable Mayor Max: I am “4-legged” and I speak for all my furry friends. I hear Christmas is approaching upon us. I would really like our community to know our holiday wish list. Enchance Idyllwild’s Doggie Park for us, our community and visitors. Please supply litter bags and containers throughout busy […]

Opinion: Palms to Pines Scenic Byway

Having attended local meetings regarding the proposed Palms to Pines Scenic Byway, I would like to comment about the letter to editor on this topic in [the Nov. 22 issue of the Town Crier]. There are numerous such byways across the USA whose major purpose is educational and interpretative, not commerical. Near my birthplace in […]

Opinion: Phone numbers the ‘659’ is silent

I have lived full-time in Idyllwild for more than a year now — a short time compared to the multitude of wonderful “long-timers.” I noticed right from the beginning that the Hill folk refer to their phone number as a four digit number (the last four of the rest of the world’s 10-digit number). At […]

Opinion: Scenic Byway plan

I am writing to comment on the article titled “Palms to Pines Scenic Byway plan complete” that appeared in the Nov. 1 edition of the Town Crier. I would like to draw attention to the sections titled “Threats and Weaknesses” in the Plan [page 131 of the “Palms to Pines Scenic Byway Corridor Management Plan,” […]

Opinion: Water demand in Tollgate neighborhood

This is to clarify my understanding of how the Idyllwild Water District and the Idyllwild Fire Department must proceed on any and all will serve letters issued to Idyllwild Arts until the 4-inch water line and the 300,000-gallon water tank are operational. It has been made clear by the county in its environmental document that […]

Opinion: Idyllwild Arts response

We at Idyllwild Arts are pleased that Riverside County has granted us a Mitigated Negative Declaration, essentially approving the latest revision to our campus master plan. As all of the issues mentioned in the above letter were addressed at the planning hearing in Riverside on Nov. 5, we look forward to working with IWD and […]

Opinion: Republicans and Latinos

[The] Republicans’ choice to either change their hostile attitudes toward Latino voters or going the way of the Whig party will soon be known by everyone. They will have to choose to start talking to Latinos rather than about them amongst their lily-white selves. What do I mean? Here is an Idyllwild example. One of […]

Opinion: Colon cancer prevention

There is a common thought that one aspect of our diet to prevent colon cancer is more fiber. Yet when I contacted our school district “Nutritional Services” 10 years ago to ask why isn’t fiber an item they measure in a school lunches, they replied the state doesn’t require them to. When I contacted the […]

Opinion: Proposition 30

While reading the Town Crier online this morning [Nov. 1], I noticed that your listing for Proposition 30 says something on the order of “Gov. Brown’s Bill To Fund Education.” After recently registering and reading the propositions, I find your description misleading. The bill doesn’t guarantee one thin dime for education. Instead, it is a […]

Opinion: Declaration

Technically, this is not a letter to the editor. Some may view it as “Another point of view.” I received it from Doris Lombard, who wrote, “A poem from an Idyllwild School ex-student of mine on learning he has colon cancer.” Whatever we label it, this poem came from the soul. Since we have several […]
