I’m an advocate for the poor and working class families. The work is a labor of love but also one that needs to be done. Those of us out in the trenches can share untold stories of the harassment, physical abuse, and many other forms of oppression from farmers and those who support their interests.


What is going on with our president. What is he afraid of? Why won’t he reveal his taxes like all the American people do.

Director Mel Gosage and his well-seasoned cast serve up rapid-fire repartee and sticky situations that send the dough flying in playwright Jim Brochu’s culinary comedy.


On behalf of the Zonta Club of Porterville I want to thank our community for your tremendous support of our recent “Evening of Art and Wine” fundraiser event.


I attended opening night of “Cooking With Gus” at the Barn Theatre on Friday evening. This comedy is not to be missed.

Not disorderly


In your editorial of March 8, 2017, you said that the town hall meetings for Congressmen Kevin McCarthy and Devon Nunes were disorderly and seemingly “orchestrated” by presumably outside, radical opposition, and that the congressmen should take a pass on these functions in their districts until the meetings are “…more civil and more balanced”. I take issue with both your characterization of the meetings that have taken place and your advice that our representatives not meet with those who elected them.

Sanctuary Homes


Now that Donald Trump is president, we have an underground network, which has sanctuary homes to hide undocumented immigrants according to CNN.

What happened to Springville?


My wife and I used to love driving on 190 looking at the well-manicured roads, but now it seems it is trashy. 

Not my president


I did not vote for him, but he said he wanted to be president for all Americans. Turns out that is only for those agreeing with him. Disagree and you are 1) out of a job; 2) demeaned on Twitter, or radio or (gasp) in the news! I disagree.

Executive order


The importance of Trump’s Executive Order might not be fully understood for generations.
