Reader’s Write: Puff pieces on the front page

The realty board letter peaked my interest. I like to read good news as well as anyone, but Idyllwild is not Disneyland. This is a real community with a real newspaper with real news. I know sometimes the folk from down below think it is Disneyland, walking down the center of the streets and stopping […]

Creature Corner: Jan. 16, 2014

Found on the Ernie Maxwell Trail: an adult neutered male German shepherd with no chip, collar or tag. Well groomed. Yep, I’m Scrappy Doo. And it’s a good thing because a human abandoned me in the ARF yard one chilly day. So I had to learn really fast how to be a scrapper. I am […]

Reader’s Write: Realtors’ letter offends off-Hiller

I support the Town Crier’s efforts and placement within the paper to keep all of us informed about the facts and realities in Idyllwild — the good stories as well as the bad. Keep up the good work, and keep things as they are. It is not just for the tourists to know what is […]

Past Tense: Jan. 9, 2014

65 years ago – 1949 A cold snap brought a high of 30 degrees and a low of 7 degrees one day, freezing pipes and Mrs. Eric Holm’s breath on her coat. Emax reported that even the squirrels were shivering 60 years ago – 1954 The California Public Utilities Commission approved Idyllwild Water Company’s request […]

Reader’s Write: Rose Parade draws tourists to Hill

One of the reasons we come to Idyllwild over New Year’s is perhaps the strangest you may have ever heard. Besides for the fresh air, quiet, fun stores, restaurants and shops, it is to watch the Rose Parade. All San Diego-area cable companies eliminated KTLA Channel 5 from their cable line-up years ago. (Too much […]

Out Loud: An Idyllwild treasure …

In the interview in this week’s issue (page 11) with new Park Interpreter Jyoti Kintz, she mentioned that more people are coming to the Nature Center since the Town Crier opened the Visitors Center. The Nature Center is one of the best places to visit in Idyllwild, I think, and we like sending people of […]

Reader’s Write: Grand jury report is a stretch

Well, you have to give them credit for one thing — they don’t give up. But although their previous “investigations” have been a stretch, this one takes the cake. This time they’re going to decide in all of their wisdom whether one member of an organization the county has nothing to do with has too […]

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 […]

Lola’s Kitchen: Fondue revival …

Do you remember the food trends from your past? Some of mine are Jello molds with drained fruit cocktail. Onion dip with chips is still around — a great dip for guys with football on TV. Due to my heritage, I also remember the traditional tamale making around the kitchen table on Christmas eve.As a […]

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 […]
