Nature Center names new park interpreter

Jyoti Kintz has been named park interpreter at the Nature Center following the retirement of Shelley Kibby on Nov. 7, 2013.

She attended Idyllwild School from kindergarten […]

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 […]

Tremors shake the mountain

In the past week, a series of six earthquakes shook the Idyllwild area along the San Jacinto Fault. The first was at about 3:45 Monday afternoon, Dec. 30, and was the largest and closest. The 3.6-magnitude earthquake could be felt throughout Idyllwild. The epicenter was about 2 miles south-southwest of Idyllwild and 9 miles east-southeast […]

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 […]
