We salute Redlands firefighters. OK, this is an easy one. Who doesn’t love firefighters? Some readers must be thinking, “It goes without saying.”
Wildfires, mudslides, earthquakes, tsunamis. I am trying to come up with a list of natural disasters we live with in Southern California. Not that I am hoping to experience any of them, but after the pretty big trembles in the beginning of July, it makes you wonder if you got your act togeth…
This month, students across the Inland Empire head back to the classroom to start the school year. It can be a hectic time for young people and their families to be meeting new teachers, attending new schools and often adjusting to a new routine.
Recycling your cans, bottles, plastic, paper and other disposables through routes that avoid landfills is virtuous, especially for those of us who believe climate change is real and care about sea creatures.
A possible solution to the homeless: Let’s take one of the many empty warehouses in San Bernardino, put cubicles and cots in them with a few port-a-potties and a couple of showers. Allow the homeless to live there.

I hope our community knows that last week Our Town lost an important supporter with the death of Ken King, who even after his move several years ago to San Diego, kept giving to Redlands as a former Redlands Man of the Year.
As the Legislature finishes out this year’s session in the coming weeks, one bill that deserves increased scrutiny is AB 5 by Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, D-San Diego, which, if passed, would threaten the livelihoods of 2 million Californians.
The city wasted opportunity to have open additional Redlands parks this summer. For just a micro-fraction of the cost that has been paid for the painting and maintenance of all of the Redland's bike lanes, we could have opened our school's lawns and playgrounds to the community during the su…
I’m thrilled about the Redlands Passenger Rail Project. I have been ever since I heard about it at a booth atop the city’s parking garage during the Redlands Bicycle Classic several years ago.
In the 17 weeks of the young life of the Redlands Community News, we’ve been impressed by the generous and caring people of this grand old city. Story after story has revealed citizens with a heart.
I missed two earthquakes last week. My daughter felt both the 6.4 on Thursday and the 7.1 on Friday. She was house-sitting in Highland, 5 miles closer to the epicenter in Ridgecrest.
I live in the Smiley Historic District and have seen 10 years go by the abandoned apartment house on Olive Avenue — we all know the one — watching the poor old thing get worse and worse with the passage of time.
Law enforcement and emergency medical technicians face a difficult situation when they respond to help someone experiencing a psychiatric episode. Thankfully, with the creation of crisis stabilization units individuals can receive treatment without clogging our emergency rooms or crowding ou…
Summer is officially here, with temperatures hovering just under the triple digits and the last June gloom behind us. The kids are off on break and so are some of us adults. My kids and I dream of having our own swimming pool. If you are one of the lucky ones, we might be over to cool off.
Recently, there has been a lot written about the train coming to Redlands and the transit villages and how good all this will be for our town, and all the problems it will help solve — as in, less traffic, more community green spaces, convenience, etc.
There are 249 days until the March 3 election, when Redlands voters will decide whether to exempt property within a half mile of three new train stations from growth-control measures approved decades ago.
If Senate Bills 555 and 144 are enacted, they will eliminate funding for San Bernardino County’s inmate welfare services and alternative sentencing programs.
Many things make Redlands special — the city’s history and the way residents cherish our rich past, State Street, the mansions and their generous owners, the bike race, the Run Through Redlands, the 28 miles of trials and conservancy that maintains them, and so much more.
In “Poor Richard’s Almanac,” Benjamin Franklin imparted a piece of sage advice that, as a California legislator, I think is important for my colleagues and me in Sacramento to heed: “Little strokes fell great oaks.”
I love that the proper term for graduation is commencement. It sends a message: Graduates, everything you’ve done so far was practice for the real world, for life as we know it. Can you turn what you’ve learned into a worthwhile career?
I am writing to express my excitement and support for the Redlands transit village. I strongly believe that the kind of mixed-use development likely to occur in the transit villages will greatly contribute to Redlands citizens' quality of life and is right for the city at this time.
Despite being a simple bugle call, taps is one of the most moving tunes that we hear on patriotic holidays. There are only 24 notes — nine G’s, eight C’s, six E’s and one high G.

The Redlands Symphony concert on Saturday, May 18, was amazing. “Cantus Articus” was just such a gift. What an amazing piece of music. I could SEE the tundra and the hills and the environment where the composer lived. What love he had for his home!
The Redlands Community News is proud to see that Redlands still has relationships with three sister cities — Hino, Japan; San Miguel de Allende, Mexico; and Linli County, China.
