Sutter County Sheriff’s Department was down here at the homeless camp harassing homeless people and taking their vehicles that we live in without probable cause or justification. Their justification for this actually was ... “because they can.”

During the 2016 presidential campaign I gradually realized that Trump was becoming the spokesman for our crackpot fringe; and once he was elected I knew that the crackpot fringe was now establishment. Yet, even then I continued to think that the worst he would do was shoot his mouth off ever…

The city of Yuba City had representatives of CalPers visit on October 10th for a public meeting.  Unfortunately the general public, being apathetic, refrained from attending.

What is the school your child attends teaching him or her? Do you know? I was watching children in San Francisco (that had been excused from school for the day) protesting. These were young children, not middle school or high school. I was appalled. Our young minds are being indoctrinated by…

I recently returned to the Yuba-Sutter area after living in the Fort Collins/Loveland area of Northern Colorado. This area of Colorado has been seeing huge growth over the last 10 years. During this time we where introduced to “roundabouts” and at first there was a lot of complaining regardi…

First I would like to thank Roberta Fletcher for defending the Constitution. I would also like to say to her that her party has bee hijacked by socialists, and that I hope that reasonable Democrats will put a stop to these fools that have taken control of a once great party.

Recently, I had the unfortunate experience of having the Sutter County Sheriff’s Dept. visit my home at 3:30 in the morning. My daughter had been violently murdered in Wash., D.C., and they came to my house to tell me personally, and to have me contact the detective in D.C. about the details…

In his letter of September 12, Mr. Cooper made a pathetically feeble attempt to equate the current Democratic Party with various fascist organizations of the 1930s, in particular the enforcement arm of the Nazi party, the SA.

One thing that the voters of Yuba County have little comprehension of is voting for county supervisor is also voting for director of the Yuba Water Agency.  The YWA is being to have a dominating effect on projects throughout Yuba County.  Just note the POD committee agenda for Tuesday.  

Responding to Billy Cooper and his letter published on September 12, 2019: I am a Democrat and I am proud to be a citizen of the United States and I am proud of our Constitution and form of government. I do not agree with your opinion but I support your right to freedom of speech.

I sympathize with Ms. Mitchell’s frustrations about the lack of political representation of her particular views in the state of California. Sometimes we have ideas that a majority of reasonable people just don’t agree with. We don’t always get what we want and, well, sometimes that makes us…

Doctors over-prescribing opioids did not cause our drug crisis. According to CDC’s data, nearly half of all overdoses don’t involve prescribed opioids at all. Among the remaining drug-related deaths in 2017, half involved illicit fentanyl and heroin. Only about 18,000 deaths involved a presc…

I have watched the Democratic Party turn into the Democratic Communist Party. I see the words of Maxine Watters “Get In their face” being played out in the attacks on police officers across the country, the worst being in NYC. These attacks border on anarchy. And the ideas put forth by those…

On August 29, 2019, I, my wife Karen and our daughter Michele were interviewed by CBS evening news on the subject of the nationwide epidemic of Firefighter/First Responder suicides. Our son, William “Billy” Lewis, committed suicide on Feb. 14, 2016, after suffering from post traumatic stress…

The local response to the statement by the UN conference on climate change leaves me discouraged. It is obvious that few people have any conceptions that the energy freed from chemical and nuclear bombs remains in the environment in the form of heat and adds cumulatively. 

He was sitting there, all alone, at Taco Bell, his bedroll leaning against his leg; his only possession. Across the room four young boys were quietly singing happy birthday to one of the four. This young man looked up and said, “it’s my birthday too.” Nobody had noticed; nobody cared.

Brad Westmoreland wrote that guns kill people again. That is ludicrous. A gun is an inanimate object that can do nothing but sit there if not for a person to pick it up and use it. Clearly no gun alone has ever killed anyone. The logic behind this premise is profanely flawed. If that person …

The City of Marysville will be considering sewer rate increases at their public hearing on September 17, 2019, at 6 p.m. The initial increases start at 33 percent for residential customers and between 41 percent and 93 percent for commercial customers, with a 3 percent annual increase for bo…

The Editorial Board of the Appeal-Democrat recently engaged in a bit of navel-gazing with its article about gun control arguments following the latest of America’s all-too-common mass shootings.

Thank you for your thoughtful inquiry in the August 7 Our View. You asked the question, “why someone would want to shoot a lot of people,” and you raise the question of how the shooters “feel about life.”  We believe the answer is the killers do not value human life, theirs or anyone else’s.…

Let’s pretend for a moment. What if? Do you have a choice? How are patriotic freedom loving citizens looked at in the media? How are Judeau-Christian values treated in the media? How are we treated in court? When are we not called vicious names?

I have just learned of the impending closure of Gauche Aquatic Park for five months of the year and I and my family are completely surprised and incredibly disappointed.
