    SOUND OFF: Where was the Driller game story last week?

    Reader: You guys really dropped the ball this (Saturday) morning in the paper. You get to the Sports section and you refer to some of the big high school football games that occurred the night before but you failed to report the score of...

    SOUND OFF: How dare you publish opinions I disagree with

    Reader: After years of anticipation, I gleefully announce the cancellation of my subscription to your publication today. Would've done it years ago but my wife insisted on keeping it for the local news it provided. She'll now learn to do...

    SOUND OFF: Distasteful detail ruined salute to councilwoman

    Reader: I am so disappointed in a recent story about Bakersfield City Councilwoman Jacquie Sullivan ("Sullivan is longest-serving," City Beat, Aug. 22). What should have been a story about her service to the citizens of Bakersfield was...

    SOUND OFF: Police the political endorsements in those letters

    Reader: As we near the date for our next election, we are already seeing reader opinions printed in The Californian that endorse specific candidates. While I completely understand the urge to do this, it seems to me that this becomes free...

    SOUND OFF: Our neighborhood has been left off the crime map

    BAKERSFIELD OBSERVED: A blog about life, media, politics & people

    BAD FORM: Linda Welch shared a story about a young panhandler who was standing in front of the McDonald’s on North Chester Avenue along with his dog. She happened to have a can of dog food in her car and handed to the man. “He looked at...

    SOUND OFF: Digital push doesn't mean we dismiss paper fans

    Reader: Today, after reading "Sound Off" in the paper edition, I decided to try the e-edition. Have any of you tried to read a screen on a tablet measuring 4-1/4 by 6-3/4 inches? Didn't think so. Anyway, I tried my best to read just one...

    ROBERT PRICE: 6 Californias? Nah, we're better as one

    Editor's note: Steven Colbert referenced this Robert Price column from February 2014 on the July 23, 2014, edition of "The Colbert Report." Irony abounds here in the poorest region of the country's richest state, a place dominated...

    ROBERT PRICE: My visit to a Denver marijuana store

    Our first clue that we were in the vicinity of a marijuana shop was the sight of an addled but enthusiastic man dancing along the sidewalk. “Welc’m to Caw-luh-RAAAAH-doh!” he shouted in our general direction, giggling so tweakfully that...

    SOUND OFF: Did publisher have an ulterior motive for writing?

    Reader: What a self-serving article. This (July 13 column, “Same community dedication, less paper,” by Publisher Ginger Moorhouse) isn't about promoting your digital offerings, but (is) rather an attempt to justify the ever-shrinking...

    SOUND OFF: Why all the focus on dangers of oil tanker trains?
