Extreme water meddling will be counterproductive

Assemblymember Marie Waldron AD-75 (R) The state budget agreement earlier in June was really only the beginning of a series of intense discussions involving “trailer bills” that deal with specific issues not included in the main budget itself. Senate Bill 88 is one such bill. This legislation, which I opposed, will have significant impacts on […]

The Environmental Protection Agency vs. rural America

By Mike Machado General Engineering Contractor The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), for those of us only recently awakened by the agency’s relentless attacks on industry and utilities, is the official environmental arm of the White House.

The budget deadline was met, but…

Assemblymember Marie Waldron AD-75 (R) On June 15, the Legislature met its constitutional obligations and passed a general fund budget for the upcoming 2015-2016 fiscal year.

“No” to another Civil War

Here we are in the summer of 2015, many years past slavery, past African Americans attaining the right to vote, past forced “back of the bus” seating and water fountains for “whites” only, yet… what do the headlines read? “Nine black women and men shot to death while in church praying, by a 21-year-old white […]

RE: “Bonsall Sponsor Group opposes Lilac Hills Ranch” [Letter, Village News, 5/8/2015]

Community Planning/Sponsor Groups can be a valuable asset – providing community guidance and insights for planning and development. But when a few political insiders control these groups, forcing their narrow views on the entire community, then the credibility of the planning group process is compromised. That is exactly what has happened to the Bonsall Community […]

Thank you NC Fire Station 3 ‘B’ Crew
