Tax increases, threats to Proposition 13 are still on the table

By Assemblymember Marie Waldron AD-75 (R) Attempts to undermine Prop. 13 protections for California taxpayers or simply to raise taxes and “fees” seem to be gathering steam in Sacramento. Special sessions have been called to deal with transportation and health care funding, and calls for increased taxes are being heard. The proposals include increasing the […]

Shameless issues need to stop

Why do we need “Sanctuary Cities” in America? Are they protecting U.S. citizens in any way or only a hideaway for illegal immigrants supposedly escaping persecution in Central and South America?

Dogs have a natural desire to be […]

Re: “The Environmental Protection Agency vs. rural America” [Letter, Village News, June 25, 2015]

I found the guest editorial by Mike Machado, “The Environmental Protection Agency vs. rural America”, somewhat lacking in facts.
