Opinion: Guns 1

First, let me say that I don’t own a gun, and I’m not suggesting that gun ownership be unregulated. Little kids shouldn’t be allowed to drive cars. People like me shouldn’t be allowed to buy rat poison. And even good folks shouldn’t be allowed to buy guns without there being restrictions. I make no excuses […]

Opinion: The final word

If there is one thing I can say, it is that we are grateful for all the support and positive energy everyone has given us here at INK Book Gathering. We appreciate it more than we can say. We cannot condone the negative things being said, all we can do is support the freedom of […]

Opinion: Rebuttal

Are the negative, character-assasinating comments about Eduardo Santiago being posted or printed in our paper? I surely hope not. It would set a terrible precedent for anyone to name-call (“Leave your L.A. ego in L.A.”) or give misinformation (“Hardly anyone in attendance bought books”). I attended all series events and two times the bookstore ran […]

Opinion: Argument

I want to send a big thank-you to Julie Johnson for opening her wonderful store, INK Book Gathering, to Idyllwild Authors Series. I was shocked by moderator Eduadro Santiago who blatantly overlooked the fact that the series was a collaboration between himself, INK and the attending authors. It was not a one man show, and […]

Opinion: A conductor’s comments

Yes, it is true that the noise from the playground was loud and distracting for us, especially during the quieter pieces. I am at a loss to understand why the playground was placed right next to the stage. I assume space was an issue. However, I would like to suggest that the play area be […]

Opinion: Commotion at concert series

The performance that the Coachella Valley Symphony Orchestra treated us to last Thursday evening [July 26] was truly memorable. They made the long trip to Idyllwild and gave it everything they had. But what was also memorable was the audience talking and visiting with friends as if the music was getting in the way of […]

Opinion: Paying our way

While camping at Idyllwild Park last August, and after moving to Idyllwild last October, I discovered the wonderful trails within the park’s over 200 acres. I live near the park’s western end and hike the trails or walk the paved road nearly every morning or evening with my leashed dog. Riverside County Parks requests a […]

Opinion: Rules were clear — ARF 3

It’s come to my attention regarding the ARF mayoral election that there are some unfair accusations being carelessly tossed around. Max’s owner, Ms. Phyllis Mueller, broke no rules according to the ARF rules and guidelines for the election. ARF allowed for a dollar vote whether the vote was donated by any number of individuals or […]

Opinion: Support for IWD

I support the Idyllwild Water District in its mission and goal of maintaining sustainability for its water and sewer service to all of its customers, including the Idyllwild Arts Foundation. The district makes clear that a prerequisite for a stable water supply for all its customers is a new 300,000-gallon reservoir to be fully operational […]

Opinion: Guns are dangerous

I agree strongly with New York [City] Mayor Michael Bloomberg coming out against the leading cause of gun violence. The mayor opposes the wake of terror the [jerk] in Denver caused by using his assault weapon to assault people as well as the credo we are powerless to guarantee life, liberty, or any pursuit of […]
