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 […]

Now it’s winter again and all I can say to Idyllwild’s newcomers is welcome to the Hill. I hope you enjoy the change of seasons. After talking to a few newcomers and offering some tips on staying warm in the fall and winter months, I was asked to write this column and offer some of […]

Opinion: Half truths have no value

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 […]

Fire and Forest: Fewer dollars …

Last week, a bunch of us from the Mountain Communities Fire Safe Council traveled […]
