Reader’s Write: Not smart to fold the water agency

One would think that, after at least a decade of leading a horse to drink at a more-cohesive San Jacinto Mountain Water Agency trough, some collective reason would have set in. Looks like the Kool Aid in the Pine Cove wells is better than the sugar around the SJMWA table, even though this time its […]

Readers write – Idyllwild was at its best

Editor: Idyllwild, as a nationally recognized arts community, took another giant leap forward last weekend under the “big top” of the elementary school gymnasium. The cavernous venue was turned into an excellent showplace for two compatible artistic endeavors. Guests walked into the cleverly erected art show maze near the entrance, where they had space to wander […]

Readers write – Publish only the good news in front of the paper

Editor: As of late, there has been much discussion among the members of the Idyllwild Association of Realtors regarding recent front-page articles in the Town Crier. Specifically, the articles that capitalize on negative events occurring in and around the community of Idyllwild. While we recognize that criminal activity, traffic accidents, house fires, etc., make for […]

Readers write: Suggestions for Tree Lighting

Editor: A recent letter to the editor expressed a desire to make the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony more child-friendly.  I completely agree, but it could also be made more adult-friendly as well. Don’t misinterpret my suggestions, please. I believe the tree lighting is one of the highlights of the year in Idyllwild and I would […]

Readers write: Items for class project

Editor: Each member of our class is working on a project called the “Parade of States.” We are responsible for gathering as much information as we can from a number of sources. I have chosen California for my state. If any of your readers would help me out by sending any pictures, postcards, a used […]

Readers write: Did you hear what he said?

Editor: Did you hear what he said, he being Nelson Mandela? From his hospital bed in 2011 he announced, “I am not sick, I am old.” Being 76 years old myself, and not always of sound body and mind, I find this statement to be dazzling and diamond-like in its clarity. Mandela tells me I, […]

Readers write: Make ceremony more kid-friendly

Editor: I have one suggestion that those of you in charge of the Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony might consider. Many of us with small children/grandchildren would greatly appreciate a more condensed version of the program. For example: 1) see Santa arrive, 2) sing a few uplifting Christmas/Hanukkah songs (such as “Jingle Bells,” Rudolph, Dreidel), and […]

Readers Write: 11.28.2013

Jazz fest didn’t need rescuing Editor: J.P. Crumrine’s article about Jazz in the Pines is certainly right indicating that Anne and Barnaby Finch will put on a great show this year. They are some of the most talented people in Idyllwild. But he does make it sound as if “jazz” needed rescuing. Having seen the dedication […]

Readers write: New center a benefit to youth

Editor’s note: As part of the Common Core standards being taught at Idyllwild School, teacher George Companiott had his eighth-grade students write letters to the editor. This is the third week Town Crier is printing a few of these. Editor: Idyllwild is a nice community. However, there are not many recreational activities for youths. My […]

Readers write: Where will we have activities?

Editor’s note: As part of the Common Core standards being taught at Idyllwild School, teacher George Companiott had his eighth-grade students write letters to the editor. This is the third week Town Crier is printing a few of these.   Editor: The youths of Idyllwild have been lacking engaging activities. Is there a solution to […]
