Opinion: What’s the new library’s chain for?

I really like the design of the new library by Fairway Market. But can anyone tell me what the vertical heavy duty chain hanging from the front corner of the roof is for? It’s attached to the ground with a carabiner type clip and runs between the cement base on the ground and the front […]

Opinion: Computer scams 2

I have received many of these calls trying to tell me my computer is infected with a virus or trojan. There is no doubt this is a scam. They want you to buy a program that does maintenance on your computer. Of course, once you install that program they have access to your computer. On […]

Opinion: A new library isn’t open yet

Hey, folks, lighten up! As I walk from our post office to Fairway Foods and other Strawberry Creek Shopping Plaza businesses, I often — make that usually — hear derogatory comments about the new library building. The color, the doors, the parking, the cost of construction — everybody seems to have an opinion, and I […]

Opinion: No on Prop 30

Greetings from a cynical centrist! Here we are two months away from an election of such enormous ramifications the results of which will be felt for decades. Yet, we’ve had dozens of letters over a doggie fundraiser contest result. Amazing! But then editor J.P. saved us from ourselves. The election you ask? I did feel […]

Opinion: Computer scams

It has come to my attention that several people on the Hill have been the victim of computer scams via phone calls. Their computers were hacked and sensitive information stolen. The scam is enticing and persuasive. You receive a phone call from someone with a strong Indian accent and you definitively are told that “something […]

Opinion: Paradise? Here?

You call this paradise? Everyone needs to wake up and smell the dead brush. I haven’t paid much attention to what’s been going on around here lately, so tonight I read the Town Crier. And what did I see about what’s been going on? ARF and the monument. Is that what you call paradise? Everyone […]

Opinion: Final thoughts on ARF mayoral race

The ARF Idyllwild mayoralty election was in June. These will be the final letters and comments about that race. It is time to turn to the future. I encourage readers to focus on the November election which will be in less than 70 days. If you prefer local topics, then Max’s leadership and re-election campaign […]

Opinion: The true meaning of giving

The true meaning of giving must come from the heart. Yes, Ms. Mueller was indeed extremely generous with her ARF donation — unfortunately leading to much controversy. Extreme amounts of money were spent by her for the election, “Max for Mayor” which certainly could have added to ARF’s coffers — but of course it was […]

Opinion: Can’t we all just get along?

The first three letters of “fund” are “fun.” Obviously, since Madelaine did not win the election, she’s not having a lot of fun. She’s a very angry person. I can understand that. When you have hopes and dreams of winning, and you don’t, it can often be disappointing. However, that does not mean that your […]

Opinion: ARF accepts donations 2

ARF is definitely accepting donations, just not from Madelaine Barnett Cresswell. This is because of Madelaine’s very poor behavior regarding the election. I was recently contacted by ARF who let me know that they are no longer associating with Madelaine due to her very poor behavior since the election. They did not tell me what […]
