Lola’s Kitchen: My mother’s cooking …

Since I grew up on an apricot ranch that my parents owned in San Jose, Calif., I always had plenty of fresh, homegrown fruits and vegetables available. Our milk came from a neighboring dairy, so everything was fresh. Whenever I think of my mother, I see her in the kitchen. It seemed she was always […]

That Was Yummy! Chiles rellenos from La Casita Mexican Restaurant …

Dear That Was Yummy, Each time I go to La Casita Mexican Restaurant, I must have their chiles rellenos. I have eaten this dish at many restaurants over the years, and their version is by far the best. I asked Robert at La Casita for the recipe, and he was very gracious to share it […]

Opinion: The village makes the concerts happen

We have completed another year of Idyllwild Summer Concerts and this concludes 12 summers. The generous support of time, talent and money has now made this happen for 12 seasons. Since Idyllwild Summer Concerts moved to our own Community Center, the attendance has grown to record levels. It’s a pleasure to watch everyone enjoying the […]

Opinion: Youth and age

I have been attending and supporting the summer concerts since the first season. The last four years, my children have been enjoying it as well.

They stood because they were requested to stand if they were members of the armed forces, who bravely fought for the freedoms we have and enjoy […]

Opinion: R.E.S.P.E.C.T!

And, we come to value respect for such things.When […]

Opinion: Concert conflict

I cannot abide the treatment my children and I received at our local concert event last Thursday. I have been attending the events for the last six years, what I love most about them is the openness and inclusiveness — everyone is welcome! My son, 2 years old, and daughter, 4 years old, have been […]

Opinion: Drive safely in the school zone

I’m grateful to be in one piece and able to write this letter. All year, I have watched people drive unsafely up and down Saunders Meadow Road past Idyllwild School. I was finally compelled to write this letter after once again nearly being run over, this time twice in one day, while crossing the street […]
