  1. Why veto Keystone pipeline?

    The majority of the people elected President Obama. A larger than majority of the people want the Keystone pipeline. On Tuesday, without fanfare, he vetoed the pipeline bill. What does not line up here? Our country needs as many jobs as...

  2. Oil is transported safely through Bakersfield

    It appears that all The Californian finds appropriate to print are opinions from naysayers and chicken-little types when it comes to addressing the controversial issue of oil trains in Bakersfield. Hello. Bakersfield is a hub for rail...

  3. Taxpayers making others richer

    It will come as a surprise, possibly a shock, to most people living in Kern to learn that we're the owners of an investment portfolio consisting of stocks and bonds worth more than $2.5 billion. And we, together with the people living in...

  4. Here's a vote for more judges like Moore

    Leonard Pitts in his usual supercilious and arrogant way, castigates Alabama Judge Roy Moore for following his conscience, the constitution and tradition. Alabama voted to maintain the core tenet of marriage as did California. Activist...

  5. Malcolm X was no King

    In last week's Californian, there was a column written by Orson Aguilar that is troubling at best ("The civil rights leader America would rather forget," Feb. 20). There is a reason that Martin Luther King Jr. has a holiday, streets named...

  6. The war on non-war

    There has been much talk in media outlets recently about U.S. strategy -- actually, a lack of strategy -- regarding the ISIS threat. While doing so, pundits are framing the discussion into yet another issue of political posturing, resulting...

  7. Road to HECA project paved with corruption

    I want to thank Lois Henry for her report revealing the corrupt dealings of regulators over the Hydrogen Energy California project ("PUC-PG&E entanglement gets even stinkier," Feb. 18). I agree the stench from backroom deals to gain...

  8. Antiobiotics a vital tool to livestock producer

    The current push in America to utilize grass-fed, antibiotic and hormone-free beef as an alternative to the traditional beef production process is an admirable movement. Our food supply in this country should be wholesome and available to...

  9. An accident waiting to happen

    So, I guess we have nothing to worry about when it comes to oil trains passing through our great city. The oil is not from North Dakota, so it won't explode. Of course, it can still burn and pollute, but who cares about that? Of course,...

  10. Chapel Hill shootings were a hate crime

    The incident which took the lives of three Muslim students in Chapel Hill, N.C., should be perceived as a hate crime if, as reports describe, the three were shot execution-style. The method sure seems to suggest greater, deeper and darker...

  11. Follow Christ's teachings

    I've been impressed for several months with the excellent articles by Brik McDill published in The Californian. In response to last week's column ("Teach diversity, yes, but also teach universal ethics, morals," Feb. 9), I can only add...

  12. 'Incredible' music festival

    As a parent of an active teenager at Actis Junior High, I can only imagine the challenge faced by chorus and music teachers at any junior high school. Nevertheless, recently my husband and I were privileged to sit through an incredible...
