Living in the twilight

It used to be, back when I first started in politics, that I subscribed to every newspaper I could, and I had read them all before anyone was even at the office. I didn't even consider it optional.

A Civil War Christmas

The American Civil War, despite its savagery and enormous loss of life, still was the cause for many changes to our nation, which has been largely forgotten in the historical telling.

Fake news versus junk news

The big "fake news" stories of 2016 were the polls. Most showed Donald Trump losing big in November, thus cable news ran countless renditions of the many ways Trump could not possibly win the necessary Electoral College vote. Getting the story utterly wrong should result in hand-wringing, hair-pulling and painful introspection in my profession; instead many in the news business have turned their hungry eyes on "fake news" disseminated on Facebook and Google.

State’s river flow plan flawed on many levels

Visionary investments in dams, canals and facilities made generations ago by local farmers have allowed our two irrigation districts – Oakdale and South San Joaquin – to have the most senior position for water rights on the Stanislaus River, rights that date back to 1853.

Together, our agencies have been responsible stewards of the river and its resources.

She is a Goldendoodle (golden retriever crossed with a standard poodle) and usually very friendly so I would think she would look at people with interest instead of yawning and looking away all the time. Is she just being stuck up?- Diva owner in Ripon

Mild neuropathy may be result of medication side effect

DEAR DR. ROACH: I have slight numbness and tingling in my feet and lower calves in both legs. It feels almost like my feet are going to sleep. I can feel pressure but not fine-touch sensation. I have been taking 200 mg of amiodarone daily for a year for heart PVCs, and that works very well. However, I have been told that it might be the cause of the numbness. My doctor indicated that it appears to be a mild neuropathy. I think it existed before taking the amiodarone, but seemed to become more noticeable after I was on it ...

Clinton vs. Trump II, 2020

Every sane person expects Green Party candidate Jill Stein's attempt to overturn the election with her vote recount effort to crash and burn. Given this, why would the Hillary Clinton campaign file a motion in support of a Stein-initiated request for a hand vote recount in Wisconsin?

There are nondrug options for sleep aids

Tsunami media never saw coming

I'm going to take a wild guess and say that nobody in what passes for the mainstream media saw the tsunami coming, the wave of discontent that we witnessed on Election Day.

Bing bing, bong bong, bing bing

What an election year. I feel like I've been transported through a cosmic squirrel hole and into a baffling political universe where facts are fiction, bizarre is normal and corruption is a virtue. Am I hallucinating? Or has this insanity really happened?
