The letter in the Aug. 16 edition of Tehachapi News called President Trump an “unrepentant liar,” but the writer provided no examples to support his accusation. If this were true, examples should be easy to find.

Santa Monica, a 100 percent renewable city near Los Angeles, is a gem. Tehachapi City could make use of the idled 40 turbine Windmatics project on Willow Springs Road to help achieve the same distinctions.

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.

Surely Dennis Tope is joking when he asserts that President Obama was inexperienced or unqualified. He is a constitutional scholar with degrees from Columbia and Harvard. He taught constitutional law for 12 years. He served in the Illinois Senate for 11 years and won the presidency TWICE.

A.J. Marshall wrote in the Tehachapi News on July 19 that, "Trump is not intellectually capable of being president." Mr. Marshall has to be kidding! Our president is not only a successful billionaire businessman, but was a successful TV personality as well.

After a plane clipped our house on June 30, knocking out our electricity all the way to the pole, we called our insurance company. No one from the plane offered any help to restore electricity to the house or fix the fence on even give us a name and number. With one call to our homeowners in…

Well people, here we go again. Someone has taken it upon themselves to speak for everyone in the city of Tehachapi. I thought that when the so-called group, Tehachapi First, was defeated, the complaints about Walmart would be over. It seems I was wrong. It has started again by saying Walmart…

Here we go again with someone who doesn’t know that the Walmart case was settled or they are just too unhappy about the outcome. I think it’s about time that Tehachapi will be able to save on fuel, time and aggravation of driving to Lancaster, Palmdale or Bakersfield.

The greater Tehachapi area is a great place for equestrians, but it seems many of the residents are not aware of how to approach horses on our roads. I have had several close calls lately and I am getting concerned that as our neighborhoods grow, and we improve more roads, that there are goi…

On a recent trip to Colorado, people I met there had some interesting things to say about our state, but most agreed that California has some of the worst roads in the country. Back in the '60s and '70s, California had the best roads in the country. So what happened?

Still waiting for the new hospital to open? I hear now that the old, inoperable operating room at Tehachapi Hospital is being turned into MORE offices, while nursing staff is being cut? Where is the logic in this move? Corporate? Let's pour more money into more offices instead of having adeq…

Christina’s 3rd annual Pancreatic Cancer Fundraiser was an enormous success. This year, we raised $3,641 more than last year. The citizens of Tehachapi and the surrounding communities came out to overwhelmingly support this cause to help find a cure for pancreatic cancer.

I have heard this statement for some time now, and I can't believe there are people foolish enough to believe we do not live in the greatest country in the world. God hasn't forgotten this country, it's the people who live here who have forgotten God — from the head of the so-called leaders …

On the Hugh Hewitt show (Sept. 21, 2015), Donald Trump said, "Global warming ... it's a hoax ... it's a hoax. I'm not a believer in global warming. I'm not a believer in man-made global warming. I believe there's weather. I believe there's change ... and I believe it goes up, and it goes dow…

The Walmarts across the country make more than $14 billion a year in profits. Investors pocket $10-plus billion. There are seven Walmart family members on Forbes' list of the country's 400 richest people. Yet, Walmart costs taxpayers $7 billion in government subsidies for its employees — foo…

I still love Tehachapi after 11 years. Prior, I was a busy coastal chiropractor. My sign was my name. When I first saw the bright, flashing, medical sign on Highway 202, I thought, "Tacky … hope we don’t ruin Tehachapi by getting more of those." The most offensive thing, though, became the c…

The Relay for Life Survivor Social is one event that does not raise money for cancer. It celebrates the lives of those who have survived cancer. Words cannot describe the feeling to know that you are still meant to be here, alive on this earth! It is also bittersweet because of those who hav…

Excellence is in short supply throughout American society. From simple household services such as plumbing and electrical work to complicated procedures in our hospitals, it's just not there. I'm not asking for the moon, just a good product at a fair price. This opinion is the result of bein…

Thank you, Tehachapi News. You brought us Maria from Bear Valley Springs who gave a sweet Chihuahua a new caring beginning. That's the Tehachapi I grew up with. Thank you Maria, for being so persistent in wanting to give this dog a home. From the minute she read the article, she called me ev…
