In 2012, during the early days of my “Phillosophically Speaking” column for our city’s local, daily newspaper, I submitted a piece about a homeless encampment of some 15 or so tents under the Interstate 10 overpass near Sylvan Park. I knew the gathering well because I’d passed it numerous ti…
In recent years, I have heard from thousands of parents across our state concerned about California’s new sex education standards after the passage of AB 329 in 2015.
I write to fully support the passage of Measure G in the city of Redlands. When serving as the mayor of Redlands in the 1980s, our historic downtown was a priority. Enormous effort was put into preserving and protecting downtown, making it a vibrant place to work and play.
Redlands voters: On March 3, we will vote on City of Redlands Measure G, an important issue affecting our city’s future development.

As many die-hard environmentalists have noticed, Redlands’ last remaining cycling centers closed in August — one of them being the rePlanet on Wabash Avenue I used earlier this year after the one next to Albertsons on Redlands Boulevard left.
It’s hard to forget the first time I looked up at the night sky in Joshua Tree National Park. I’d never seen so many stars. I was a student at the University of Redlands and had only just realized that one of the most stunning landscapes in the United States was right in our backyard. I alwa…
On Oct. 9, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed Assembly Bill 1482, the first statewide rent control bill in California history. Many of the legislators who supported this bill believe that it will provide immediate and much-needed relief to renters who are struggling to make ends meet due to the state’…

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.
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.
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…

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?
It’s 2019 and headlines abound about measles outbreaks — now the greatest number of U.S. cases since 1994 (and it’s only May). Such concerning news can make it hard to believe that vaccinations are one of America’s greatest public health achievements.
I thought you might be interested in an update on where we are in the growth of our new newspaper baby, the Redlands Community News. Unlike the royal baby, it’s a few weeks old, already has a name and can rightfully claim many parents and grandparents in our community.
Even at California’s current gas prices, I could fill my tank for the next decade if I had a quarter for every time I heard the media gleefully proclaim that the tea party was dead.
It has been 100 days of running for me this year. The last thing I think about at night is when can I get my run in tomorrow? The first thing I think about in the morning is getting that run done.

The first week of this month was National Public Health Week (April 1-7). Perhaps you are thinking “So what?” or even “What is public health?” and you are in good company. When most people think of public health they think of clean water, trash or refuse services, or perhaps vaccinations. In…
In 1776, Founding Father Thomas Paine wrote of the supremacy of law over the whims of individuals in a free society. We have come to think of the rule of law as the utmost of guiding principles in shaping a just government for all.
