Wisdom Workout

Moonlight Becomes You The moon has been my companion the past few nights. It dapples the covers on my bed so that it casts both light and shadows, nudging me awake and then giving me a reprieve as long as I don’t disappear into a deep sleep. Apparently, it enjoys my company. I don’t mind […]

I personally know nothing of the accuracy of these assertions and […]

Butow Reveals Himself

Butow Reveals Himself

Editor, I was glad to see the “correction” in the Sept. 26 letter section regarding Roger Butow’s offensive and disturbing comment about Toni Iseman’s religion. It was far beyond “gratuitous”. And, like much of what appears in the media, the damage was done and cannot be undone so easily. His comment was very revelatory about […]

Merchant Describes an Ally at City Hall

Editor, Doing business today is hard enough without having to fight the city at every turn. Whether it’s Valentine’s or Mother’s Day (our biggest holidays) you’re sure to find Caltrans digging up our streets.
