No gun laws or a bunch more gun control laws would have prevented the carnage that took place in Las Vegas. There are just too many firearms out there, folks. Have you ever tried putting toothpaste back in the tube? It's impossible! Likewise, there are just too many guns out there already, a…

Considering recent events on Sept. 22, 2017, when there was a fatal car accident at the intersection of Oak Creek Road and Tehachapi-Willow Springs Road, I would like to address the safety concerns and possible solutions to the ongoing problem for commuters who drive that dark and winding ba…

Every legitimate climate scientist and physicist on our planet now acknowledges global warming. They tell us the evidence is irrefutable, that the average global temperature has increased at the fastest rate in recorded history; the the earth's rising temperatures are fueling longer and hott…

Tehachapi Senior Center would like to thank Mina Tribble from our local Kmart store. Ms. Tribble came to TSC to explain Kmart's new savings program for seniors; she was such a breath of fresh air with her infectious smile and laughter.

All those articles in the local papers bad-mouthing President Trump are filled with hate and animosity. A.J. Marshall wrote that our president is a liar and man with limited intellect. Ted Johnson calls Trump an egomaniac and another Adolf Hitler.

Hello Mr. Johnson, respectfully sir I take a great deal of pride in being called a conservative, thank you. I also appreciate the association with Barbara Senseman, I really like her last name too. By the way, my wonderful wife's name is also Barbara, so I feel in safe company with them.

Most people I know, conservative or liberal, are unfamiliar with the details of the Deferred Action for Children Arrivals. DACA was established by President Obama to protect individuals from being deported who were brought here from other countries when they were children.

Good morning to you. Yes, you, in your little white car, shorts and flip-flops, who drove up to our Have A Heart Humane Society adoption truck and trailer this Saturday around 9:30 a.m., totally unaware that you were being watched from our store window. You stopped, and left your cat, thankf…

To the authors of the Forum comments in the Aug. 23 and 30 editions of Tehachapi News who accused the writer of the letter stating Trump is a liar while providing no evidence, I offer this evidence. Google “President Trump's Lies: The Definitive List,” and read the article published in The N…

Road construction is certainly needed on Highway 58, but when traffic is often coned off with only one lane open for six or more miles and little or no work is being done, shutting down this much highway is pure stupidity.

Regarding Trump and Arizona: To know that a man whose behavior, divisiveness and complete intellectual moral and ethical void is the president of the Untied States defies understanding. Divide and create rage in his supporters are the only two components he seems able to find in his extraord…

The Aug. 30 Tehachapi News was filled with more of the same old rhetoric, praising Wilbur and Charles, and adding Daulton and Barbara to our local VERY conservative population. I can't believe that anyone would still be singing the praises of Fox News, which is nothing more than right wing b…

California taxpayers were told by Governor Brown and the Democratic legislature that billions of dollars would be needed to fix our deteriorating roads and to build new roads. So they passed a bill making us pay 12 cents more for every gallon of gas we put in our gas tanks, and raising our c…

My parents and I were having lunch at Denny’s, because it was Mountain Festival weekend. As usual, we had my service dog with us named Mozart, and to our surprise, a young male employee at Denny’s offered a bowl of water for my service dog. This showed an act of human kindness for my dog. I …

My wife and I made our annual trek to Tehachapi for the Mountain Festival weekend, something we have done every year since we moved out of the area in 1998. Coming back here reminds us of why we lived here during the decades of the 80s and 90s, and allows us to catch up with old friends, as …

It is truly wonderful to live in a bastion of liberty like Tehachapi, one of the few in California, where you can hear opposing views in an open forum. Thank you Wilbur Wells and Charles Jensen, obviously well informed, obviously Fox News watchers, and obviously American patriots.

My wife and I were driving home from an emergency trip to Fresno the evening of Aug. 13. The traffic was light on Highway 99, so I was clicking along with traffic at about 70 mph when a black car, make and model unknown, with blacked-out windows and unreadable plates, passed me and several m…

Back in the early 1970s when I was a sociology major in college, I remember a class discussion that was bothersome to me. It had to do with a conspiracy theory called the "New World Order." This organization was made up of heads of rich corporations, land owners, money controllers, heads of …

I'm halfway through my 89th year on this planet. I've seen a lot in those 89 years — some good, some bad. But there is one thing I never thought I'd see. I never thought I'd see a perpetually self-focused, pathological liar become the president of the United States.
