The city of Redlands and other local institutions will join the Great American Shakeout precisely at 10:21 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 21.
I think it’s time, in my 80s, to express the moral outrage I feel, along with so many others, about our planetary climate crisis and especially about the cruelty of leaving this mess for our grandkids to handle.
The Keyser Marston Associates (KMA) financial analysis commissioned by the Redlands City Council evaluated the feasibility of a version of the Village Partners plan that would meet the requirements of the citizens’ initiative.
For many Americans, a single-family home has always been the dream — a place to call your own, a place to welcome family and friends or a place to enjoy the solitude with your loved ones.
When it comes to October, most people think about fall colors in the trees and Halloween. Some get excited thinking about the return of pumpkin spice lattes to Starbucks. What I’d like you to think about is October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a good opportunity to remind people that…
Congratulations to Assemblyman James Ramos and thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom for the passage of six new laws to protect Native Americans in California.
My family and I, which included seven adults and six children, purchased 11 tickets, a total of $275, for the Sheriff’s Rodeo in Glen Helen on Sept. 25. My family came from Orange County, Beaumont, Calimesa and Redlands to see a rodeo. We were so disappointed.
Ten years ago, on Sept. 17, 2011, people began gathering at New York City’s Zuccotti Park, answering a call by the Canadian anti-consumerism group Adbusters to occupy public spaces and protest economic injustices, other inequities in the world, and the continuing challenges to true democracy.
The next time you see a petition for a recall on a governor, please read it and understand it , think with your brain and ask yourself is this justified. It’ll save us over $250 million in taxpayers money!

When my 83-year-old husband, Julian Roberts, a former chemistry professor at the University of Redlands, was diagnosed with glioblastoma, he knew what was in store if he were to accept “treatment.”
The Transit Villages Specific Plan document is way too long winded to adequately summarize in a short Community News comment, but a quick skeptical view might be in the public interest. If you like a really expensive surprise now and then, you probably don’t want to know anything about the p…
This photo taken at the Walmart and Food 4 Less shopping plaza at California Street is an example of the blight that has overtaken this complex. I hope someone in the city can take appropriate measures with the property owner to demand better.
As we near the end of this summer of devastating storms, wildfires and heat waves, and the closure of our local forest, there is glimmer of hope from the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance, with a report that a carbon price and dividend is under consideration for inclusion in the reconciliatio…
Last week was an editor’s worst nightmare. After 4½ days of working on the paper, my Mac crashed at noon Wednesday. We lost everything. It took us 12 hours to rebuild the paper, finishing at 2:30 a.m. Thursday. We’re normally done around 3 p.m. Wednesday. Some of our colleagues at Reed Print…
The risk of wildfires across California and the west is at a critical point, made worse by the ongoing drought and poor forest management practices that have left more than 80 million acres of national forests overgrown, fire prone, and in dire need of active management. Now, our businesses …
The Casa Loma Hotel of yesteryear cannot be considered a “high-rise” building. It was three stories plus towers at the front cornices. If you care to check, there are numerous articles online. I saw it every day growing up years in Redlands. When I was a teenager, there were 15,000 residents…
This year’s legislative session – my first – is coming to a close, and I’d like to share some of what I’ve learned and accomplished. Representing Senate District 23 has been fascinating, enlightening and rewarding.
The news reports show rising numbers of COVID victims. New mandates for city workers to be vaccinated. New restrictions on large group gatherings. New Delta variants are faster spreading, questioning the efficacy of our COVID-19 vaccines. Schools have reopened.
Everyone seems to enjoy hearing a pleasant love story, and I was happy to recently share with Redlands Toastmasters Club 8950 club members how a couple that I have known for several years fell in love with a home.
At last week’s Redlands Unified School District meeting, audience behavior was outrageous, insulting and disruptive. Never in my 60 years in Redlands have I witnessed the boorish behavior exhibited at last Tuesday’s meeting. A few vocal audience members interrupted speakers, shouted “LIAR!” …
When it comes to being first in the nation, California is at the top of the list in many categories. The number of state and national parks? Proudly, California has more than any other state (270 and 9, respectively).
The Friends of Redlands and Redlanders for Responsible Growth Management were disappointed but not surprised by the City Council’s vote to postpone a vote on our measure until November 2022, some 15 months without resolution of an issue which will determine the future of our town.
I find Donna West’s commentary in the most recent Redlands Community News issue a serious misrepresentation of a trend to teach our students the truth about racial disparities. Her examples of the harm resulting from critical race theory (CRT) distort the positive effects of honestly represe…
Dogs howled. Children hid in their homes. Adults were shocked and some even said they were sickened by the sighting and the humming sound — all this according to the widespread, eyewitness reports in the days following that memorable evening.
We were surprised to hear objections to the name of Oriental Avenue just north of Redlands Boulevard, which has drawn attention over the past year with the development of J. Riley Distillery and Escape Craft Brewery.
There has been much discussion about equity and Critical Race Theory (CRT) recently. I expressed my thoughts about equity in an earlier commentary where in a school setting “need” rather than “race” was the determining factor in receiving additional resources.
The Venn diagram comparing the proposal to redevelop the dead mall and the proposal to develop the 9-acre grove at the England/Atwood Estate registers an interesting entry in the middle section: NIMBYs (Not In My Back Yard!) are against both proposals.
