Off the Leash: The Golden Rule

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” “What is hateful to thee, do not that unto your neighbor.” This is the Golden Rule. No matter how you word it, the rule is essentially the same. Treat others the way you would want to be treated yourself.

Lifelines: Anticipating Sunday …

When I was a teenager growing up in Philadelphia, my family used to vacation at the Jersey shore. (Easterners will note the deliberate use of “shore,” not “beach.”) Ever the good church lady, my mom would pack up her four kids and take us to the Ocean City Tabernacle on Sunday evening to hear one of the famous preachers that filled the pulpit each week.

Opinion: Further thoughts or further fabrications?

In last week’s Readers write, a Pine Cove resident addressed what she considered fabrications regarding IFPD’s provision of ambulance service to Pine Cove. The author of last week’s letter should take her own advice to ensure that her comments are supported by fact.

Opinion: We can rid the crime together

My family has been here since the late 1930s to early 1940s, and I have never seen the Sheriffs log with so many burglaries.

Outside Idyllwild: Idyllwild revisited …

It has been a very interesting week to say the least. After Miss Wyoming, aka Sue Briggs, arrived last Wednesday, I have spent my time showing her around our local mountains. I had fun introducing her around town and showing her the sights. Sue is one of friendliest and most outgoing people I have ever […]

Initial Thoughts: While we watch the “Voice,” silence continues …

About 45 citizens or residents attended Supervisor Stone’s Public Safety Summit last night. In my opinion, it wasn’t a great turnout. He and his staff put a lot of effort into developing the agenda and getting county officials to come to Idyllwild. You can read Marshall’s story here for details on who represented each agency. […]
