Boys & Girls Club’s rich history of helping kids who need it most

Tucked at the bottom of a trinket box that I brought with me when I moved several months ago was a trophy that I assumed was one of the Little League tokens handed out to every player when the season concludes.

No fireworks with Harmer, Garamendi

No journalist who has followed Lt. Gov. John Garamendi over the years could be surprised at his answer to the final question at Monday night's debate at St. Mary's College among candidates competing to replace Rep.

City distorts golf course finances

Please print all the facts when you write a story about the golf course. I understand that your story in Saturday's paper was based on information you received from city hall but when you don't have all the information the result is a story about the golf course which incorrectly portrays it to be a vast financial drain on our city general fund. And like much information which has been printed in the newspaper over the past 33 years in which I have been the golf professional, it presents a false impression of the golf facility.

Deciding which startups are OK

I've never used Airbnb. I'm not proud of my failure to dive into the sharing economy. I know it's largely a function of middle age - I don't want to sleep in a stranger's spare bedroom, even if it's cheap - and of years of parlaying hotel rewards programs to my advantage. My first reaction when I heard about ride service startups Uber and Lyft was that they enjoy an unfair advantage over cabbies, who have to jump through hoops and pay huge fees to do what "sharing" kids do on the fly.

A ticket to Sarah Palin’s funhouse

I figured the Texas lineup of Sen. Ted Cruz, Gov. Rick Perry, and a carnival sideshow of far-right Congress critters assured my state the glory of being the hands-down winner of the 2014 blue-ribbon prize for "Goofiest Politicos in America."
