Letter: Losing touch with the citizens
Posted: June 21, 2017

Editor: Gov. Jerry “Moon Beam” Brown and his Demo-Gods in the capitol have lost touch with the people in the state. Their tax and spend approach to governing the state is creating poverty to the average citizen. Taxes are outpacing wage increases. The bullet train won’t serve the citizens of the state, much less pay for itself.

Letter: Giving credit where due
Posted: June 20, 2017

Editor: Earlier this spring, while my American history class talked about the turn of the 20th century, we discussed “yellow journalism” and studied comparisons to the present state of “news”. After studying the topic, a student offered this point to the discussion: “What if information hasn’t changed over the years and it has always been up to the readers to use critical thinking skills to decipher what is biased? Maybe people have always wanted to accept what fits their worldview.” How does this young-adult wisdom work today?

Letter: People should respect the president
Posted: June 12, 2017

Letter: President of peace
Posted: June 11, 2017

Letter: Wait for it
Posted: June 09, 2017

Letter: Tough love approach with homeless?
Posted: June 06, 2017

Editor: With Lodi now seemingly flooded with a homeless population approaching, if not surpassing that of Stockton, if not Sacramento, the solutions to this problem seem, to me at least, to be to just keep throwing money at the problem and hope for the best.

Letter: Time to rein in the spending
Posted: May 19, 2017

Editor: It’s hard to believe all of the public outcry over something like the “new” recycling rules that have been in effect for 15 years. Where was all of that passion when the elected Democrats passed the largest gas tax in California history? And raised the vehicle registration fee?

Letter: Mother’s Day is not for cows
Posted: May 13, 2017

The timing, a few days before Mother’s Day, could not be more appropriate. Dairy cows, worldwide symbols of motherhood, never get to see or nurture their babies.

Letter: Common Core is not curriculum
Posted: April 25, 2017

Editor: In a recent letter — “What is Common Core?” — the author claims that the Common Core standards were “designed to teach students what to think, not how to think” and then proceeds to confuse standards with curriculum. Educational standards describe in detail what students should know and be able to do in each subject in each grade. Since I currently teach high school English to freshmen and sophomores, let's take a look at a typical English language arts writing standard for 9th /10th graders:
