Opinion: Music is attractive

Well, it’s here, springtime, warm weather, flowers and outside activities; how wonderful. I’ve lived in Idyllwild for 19 years and I love it up here, as everyone else I know does. I shop up here, dine up here, and go to a lot of events up here. One of my favorite things is going to […]

Opinion: Will miss Mayor Max

I have been a part-time resident of Idyllwild since 1969, and I can think of no other town that had a dog as mayor. It was wonderful! And although I never met Max, I followed him in the Town Crier. We need more four-legged friends in public office. My sincere condolences to his family and […]

Opinion: Tribute to Mayor Max

Every week, we look forward to enjoying the Mayor Max articles in the Town Crier. He’s more than man’s “best friend.” Every day he lived a good fun life. He carried the message of love and true leadership. Such charm and style. He showed profesionalism in his mayor’s role. We loved his bow tie attire. […]

Opinion: Chamber president speaks

To my town: I joined the chamber because I was involved in the business community and I love this town. I wanted to bring town businesses together, I wanted it to be fun like it used to be, where the business owners were a close-knit community who looked out for each other and worked to […]

Opinion: Environmental act helps

The California Environmental Quality Act is needed now more than ever. When widespread fracking is on the horizon, global warming and its impacts are ever more real, water supplies are diminishing; huge and costly infrastructure projects are under consideration at the state and local level, this is not the time to weaken the California Environmental […]

Opinion: The pleasures of our new library

I take great pleasure in my library — the Idyllwild Branch of the Riverside County Library System. Inasmuch as I am no longer interested in drinking, nor in a good carouse, some of the delights of Idyllwild are beyond my reach, but not the library. And the Idyllwild Library is no less exciting than those […]

Opinion: Pets and birds of prey

My husband Chuck and I have been residents of Fern Valley for 13 years. We have a small 3-1⁄2-pound Yorkshire Terrier dog. We are well aware of the environment in which we live and do everything we can to protect her. We never let her out in our small enclosed back yard area without being […]

Opinion: Regarding EMS costs

The Idyllwild Fire Protection District is a public agency that has regular publicly posted and open to the public board meetings at 6 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month in the training room at the fire station. Additionally, the district maintains regular office hours for the public to attend to business […]

Opinion: Emergency medical services’ cost

I don’t pay much attention to what goes on at the [Idyllwild] Fire Department because it seems to be too complicated. From some stories I’ve heard, I’m trying to understand what our taxes are paying for. Is there something provided that tells us what the fire department is supposed to do for us? In the […]

Opinion: HELP Center

If there’s anything that gripes my soul, it’s to hear someone complain about those less fortunate than themselves, “just not trying hard enough,” or “taking advantage of the system.” Then there are those who say giving to the poor just enables them to stay poor, or to take advantage of those who would help them. […]
