An improving budget situation

An improving budget situation

Assemblymember Marie Waldron AD-75 (R) On May 14, Governor Brown released his $115.3 billion “May Revise,” a budget revision based on updated revenue projections. Fortunately, California’s financial picture has brightened, with revenue growth since June, 2014 more than $14 billion over expectations. Protecting California’s K-12 and higher education system remains a top priority for me, and […]

Three cheers for Welk production of “Cabaret”

When Joshua Carr (Welk Resort manager), wrote in his program note that not every show is everyone’s ‘cup of tea,’ I agreed. This production of  “Cabaret” is much more potent! It’s an intoxicating brew of music, dance, and mind-chilling drama! Special accolades to: Ray Limon, director/choreographer, whose resume includes a Super Bowl half-time show. Not […]

Repealing the fire tax

Repealing the fire tax

Assemblymember Marie Waldron AD-75 (R) As you know, residents living in unincorporated areas are receiving a tax bill incorrectly labeled the ‘California Fire Prevention Fee.’ Unfortunately, this tax has much more to do with budgeting than it does with fighting fires. Article 13A, section 3(a) of the California Constitution, as amended by Proposition 26, reads: […]

Do college programs provide enough support?

Going to college sounds easy, but let’s face it. College and high school are not the same. While first time freshmen start at a high peak number since graduating, the number can slowly go down over time. When students hear colleges offer support programs on campus, they believe that they will receive help to graduate […]

Newspaper coverage brings in hundreds of children

Our annual Arts in the Park celebration was terrific, thanks in no small part to the Village News. I’m sure helping Rally for Children promote our event by publishing our stories and photos has brought in hundreds of children to our event. This year’s coverage with a page of photos made our group so proud of what we do. […]

Thank you to a good neighbor

I would like to thank my new neighbor (Allie or Ally). I’m new to the area (on Cathy Dr.) and my dog Max-A-Million got bored with the party we were having (outdoor fire pit, etc.). He decided to visit Ally’s. She put two and two together, new dog plus naive new owner equals lost dog. […]

Do college programs provide enough support?

  “Academically, the step up from high school to college isn’t as steep as previous transitions may have been. Unless a student takes on an unusually heavy course load, the demands aren’t markedly different from before” (The Transition from High School to College Par. 1). After leaving high school, many students are told to go […]
