Opinion: IFPD needs our help

As new residents to Idyllwild, my wife and I have been greeted with open arms and we just wanted say how appreciative we are. Last night [Tuesday, Dec. 13], on a couple of occasions, I found it impossible not to voice my opinion as I attended the December [Idyllwild Fire Protection District commissioners’] meeting.

Opinion: Don’t blame the Federal Reserve

Some folks, including Mr. Pietsch (whose “Another point of view” appeared in the Dec. 8 issue of the Town Crier), encourage support of H.R. 2990, which would eliminate the Federal Reserve System and fractional reserves for banks. Those parts of H.R. 2990 are bad ideas. Those who want to cure the ills of our present […]

Opinion: Volunteers have reasons

California automatic cuts less than feared

While the California budget situation has evinced little improvement since the legislature enacted a budget in June, the Governor’s Finance Director announced her end of year projections last week. These were significantly better than the Legislative Analyst’s November estimates. Consequently, the necessary January budget cuts will be about $1 billion rather than the worse case […]

Anza man guilty of infanticide

Dannie Joe Farnum, 30, of Anza was sentenced to 25 years in state prison for murder and assault on a child leading to its death. The seven-month old child was the son of his girlfriend, Delice Sharon Preston. Farnum was arrested and accused of killing his girlfriend’s son in November 2008. After a two-week trial, […]
