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.

Speaking for the Animals: Food for thought …

According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, at least half of this country’s dog and cat populations are overweight. The reason is pretty much the same as for their owners: taking in more calories than the body can use. And the consequences are the same, too: increased risk for serious health problems, decreased quality […]

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.

Lola’s Kitchen: Who doesn’t love bread? …

Nothing would be tastier than eating crusty bread with every meal, although the possibility for weight gain is the drawback. The smell of homemade bread baking in the oven is heavenly.

Winter seems to be a time for reflecting on seasons past, present and future. April will see the end of a year-long photo safari, which started with the goldfields in Garner Valley and continues with snowy peaks crowned with ever-changing clouds and cobalt blue skies.
