Opinion: Documenting the Mountain Fire

The Mountain Fire will go down as one of the most consequential events in Idyllwild’s history, and we at the Idyllwild Area Historical Society hope to document as complete a record of it as we can. As part of our effort we invite all local residents to share your experience of the event, whether you […]

Opinion: Grateful for the TC alert

Editor: I was just lying around today and thinking about going up the hill (from Palm Springs to Pine Cove) when a message came across my laptop regarding the fire. I was so appreciative and will wait a day or two to make the journey so I am not in anyone’s way. I am grateful […]

Opinion: Tsk, tsk, Norm

In response to Norm Cassen’s letter, “Don’t dump on Pine Cove,” in the July 4 [issue of the Town Crier], I have to ask the question: What’s your beef with Pete Capparelli? Mr. Cassen has a list of letters singling out Mr. Capparelli. Did he kill your dog or date your wife? I’ve known Pete […]

Opinion: Fire district election

Voters of Idyllwild: Look at the timeline of the Idyllwild Fire Protection District financial difficulties and figure out for yourselves when the finances became so murky. When did the audits fall into arrears? When did the health care overpayment start? When did the bailout loans from the county start? The same people who are running […]

Opinion: Digging ditches for us

The Pine Cove Water District crew must be complimented for the outstanding and timely job they just completed. They laid 1,000 feet of water pipe along Ponderosa Drive digging a ditch along the shoulder of the road.

Opinion: Pleasant surprise

What a pleasant surprise it was to see the picture of my mom on her 97th birthday in “Past tense” of last week’s paper. My mom loved that friendship bouquet and kept it on her table, where it always reminded her of all her wonderful friends. Mom was a vivacious and active woman all her […]

Opinion: A dog named Seager has hope

I stopped by ARF for a few minutes the other day and left in tears after meeting their latest rescue, Seager, a beautiful but worn-down purebred German shepherd. His good nature belies the treatment he has received at the hands of monsters who can hardly be called human. He has a damaged tail that must […]

Opinion: Don’t dump on Pine Cove

Pine Cove and Idyllwild should be united, together striving for fire safety. And you, our fire commissioners, have brought nothing but division, scandal and confusion. You are only trying to cover up a fiscal mess that you created and are responsible for. It is undemocratic and against public safety to charge us $300 more than […]

Opinion: Don’t take freedoms lightly

Next week we will celebrate America. We’ll “mmm” as we chow down on hotdogs; we’ll “ooh” as we gaze up at fireworks. We’ll sing “The Star-Spangled Banner,” hum “God Bless America,” and whistle Sousa tunes. We’ll salute our flag, wave our flag, and pin it to the chests of our red, white and blue shirts. […]
