  1. Not impressed with downtown post office

    If I was editor of a newspaper, even if it was mimeographed, the most important article that I would write would be about the downtown post office. If you would go down there and read the information on the front door and on the side door,...

  2. Another lost wallet, another return

    I want to thank the person who turned in my wallet at the Dollar Tree on Wilson Road on Saturday, Oct 11. The Lord bless you! I hope it was you who took the money. You deserve it! You could have just thrown it away but you didn't. You took...

  3. Local driving behavior a wreck

    In regards to the recent letter writer claiming, "locals are capable of driving safely," ("City should take lead in promoting progressive traffic flow," Oct. 16) I would like to know what isolated part of this community she lives in,...

  4. Rules change, but let's not 'evolve' too much

    I wanted to respond to the letter concerning the Liberty-Frontier freshman football game and the Frontier coaching staff's decision to not allow the players to take a knee when a Liberty player was hurt on the field ("Take a knee? Sorry,...

  5. Yes, your one vote does matter

    As the 2014 California General Election on Nov. 4 draws closer, we are being swamped with campaign ads and social media posts designed to sway our decision as to who or what to vote for. Candidates are touting their qualifications and, in...

  6. We shouldn't pay for their travel

    Apparently, I have had my head in the sand. I was surprised and irked at the same time I read that the California government is responsible for paying Joe Biden to come to California to speak ("Taxpayers almost surely paid for Biden's...

  7. Animal Control headaches

    Recently, we had a client come in with a cat that was adopted from Kern County Animal Services. This cat had been turned in by someone that had trapped the cat. This cat had been previously spayed and declawed. On two different documents...

  8. City should take lead in promoting progressive traffic flow

    I read the response from John Ussery, engineer for the city of Bakersfield, and wondered what cities in California he is referring to when he states "many other cities have also found significant increases in broadside accidents" ("Ask...

  9. 'Dust Bowl' play worth seeing

    Last Saturday, I witnessed a fantastic production of "Dust Bowl Dreams" preformed by students from Cal State Bakersfield at the National Steinbeck Center in Salinas. Fortunately, there will be two more opportunities for the public to see...

  10. Taking a knee: Going the 'extra mile' the right call

    I was saddened to read that Frontier High School's freshman coach did not allow his team to "take a knee" when a Liberty High School player was down on the field ("Taking a knee: Is it required etiquette on the field?" Oct. 14). I am...

  11. Take a knee? Sorry, things evolve

    I was at the Liberty-Frontier freshman football game last Thursday ("Taking a knee: Is it required etiquette on the field?" Oct. 14). Frontier players were quiet and respectful. The fans in the stands were not. There was no mention of the...

  12. Natural law is unchangeable

    I am a convert to the Catholic faith. The article of Oct. 14, "Vatican document: Show more respect for same-sex couples," upset me. I am afraid those whose faith is weak will think that the church is going to change her teaching on sexual...

  13. A terrible time to rub elbows

    It is beyond my comprehension how the president of the United States could endure evening after evening circulating among the elitists (the 1 percent?) of Hollywood, one of whom (Gwyneth Paltrow) thinks he is handsome Really! Doesn't...
