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. Today, we provide irrigation water to more than 120,000 acres in two counties. SSJID also delivers clean, affordable drinking water to three cities. Together, our agencies have been responsible stewards of the river and its resources.

Wonders if her dog is stuck up

DEAR DIDI: My dog seems excited when I grab her leash to go for a walk but when we actually get out there she acts bored. Sasha looks away from everyone and everything. 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?

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?

‘Sanctuary’ Means Career Criminals Can Run and Hide

Donald Trump understood something that many Washington insiders missed. Many Americans and some naturalized citizens bristle at elected officials constantly defending the rights of non-Americans to migrate here illegally - and to be rewarded for breaking the law with a path to citizenship. Toward that end, and in deference to his campaign promises, Trump seems primed to deport undocumented immigrants and withhold some federal funds from sanctuary cities like San Francisco.

It’s a slow process to come off steroids

DEAR DR. ROACH: I was diagnosed with polymyalgia rheumatica about five years ago, and I took prednisone for about a year. I was fine until last March, when it flared up again, with a vengeance. Since that time, I've gradually reduced the dosage from 10 mg down to 5 mg, as my rheumatologist recommends. However, I have had big problems with side effects -- thin skin, extreme arm and leg bruising, and swelling of the feet and ankles. I would like to get off prednisone completely. -- C.B.

Democrats and the Nazi card

Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., the odds-on favorite to become the Democratic National Committee's chairman, had a long association with the anti-Semitic Nation of Islam. He compared then-President George W. Bush and 9/11 to Adolf Hitler and the destruction of the Reichstag, the German parliament building: "9/11 is the juggernaut in American history and it allows ... it's almost like, you know, the Reichstag fire," Ellison said. "After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it, and it put the leader of that country (Hitler) in a position where he could basically have authority to do ...
