Opinion: What’s a majority?

Will my hardworking friends who serve so dutifully on the Idyllwild PTA please inform the commissioners of the Idyllwild Fire Protection District (IFPD) board that the majority of five is three not two? Recently, these commissioners appointed a new commissioner to the board, claiming that two votes counted as a simple majority since only three […]

Opinion: From Town Hall employee

In response to the letter by Ms. Kathy Lewis [in the Nov. 10 issue of the Town Crier], I would like to share with her that I have been working at Town Hall for the past few months in the after school program. Before I was hired, not only was I finger-printed, but a background […]

Opinion: Half truths have no value

I have just one thought after reading the letter titled “Who is Community Center for?” in the Nov. 3 edition of the Town Crier. There is a story of a woman who went to her priest to confess that she had spread rumors about another individual and asked for forgiveness. The priest handed her a […]

Opinion: Publishing rants is not free speech

I must speak out against the recent accusatory ranting recently published in the opinion and letters section of the Town Crier. It is inconceivable to me that a newspaper would allow such personal attacks impugning the character and reputation of those who are trying to serve this community to be printed. This is wrong. It […]

Opinion: What’s going on with recreation?

This first paragraph is in response to the Readers write letter from Jeff Smith last week [in the Nov. 3 issue of the Town Crier]. It is malicious and full of fabrications. I have only met Jeff Smith once, and that was at the County Service Area (CSA) 36 advisory committee meeting when he threatened […]

Opinion: Occupied!

I’m glad to see the Idyllwild knob turned to red. Some years ago, our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. But experience hath shown, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in […]

Opinion: St. Petersburg Quartet concert at Idyllwild Arts

Being an ISOMATA [Idyllwild School of Music and Theater Arts, now Idyllwild Arts] alumnus of the 1960s, I can say audiences knew better than to clap between movements of a single work. The administration and teachers should immediately impart this knowledge to their students and at the very least note on future programs, “Please refrain […]

Opinion: Health insurance barriers

In the Oct. 20 issue of the Town Crier, [the author of one of the] letters to the editor asserts there is no excuse why anyone whose annual income is equal or greater than $50,000 would lack health insurance. I must conclude he is not acquainted with pre-existing condition clauses. Allow me to elucidate. These […]

Opinion: Who is community center for?

Property tax dollars belong to this town, not the Idyllwild Community Recreation Council (ICRC), Bill Sanborn or Marge Muir. ICRC must be a property owner elected group. It’s not a school, Bill or Marge, mandated by the State constitution. It certainly should not be for a bank account with Bob Lewis, Dawn Sonnier, or Chris […]

Opinion: Why we need the safety net

Here I am just hanging up from a Republican National Committee fundraiser call. I explained to the nice 27-seven-year-old that I have seen too much swill from the fat-cat-friendly tea baggers or the sue-happy liberals that I just don’t think either have anyone’s best interest at heart but their own. This includes letter-writer Mr. Ferguson, […]
