  1. 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...

  2. 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...

  3. '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...

  4. 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...

  5. 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...

  6. 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...

  7. 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...

  8. Give us a break: Locals capable of driving safely

    In reference to the inquiries in the Oct. 13 Ask TBC article about "left turn yield on green" lanes -- and the lack of them -- I also wonder why we don't have more rather than less. We are requested to not idle our cars anywhere we go;...

  9. The good kind of 'Wrinkles'

    I thoroughly enjoyed "cruising" with the Bakersfield Music Theater's presentation of "Wrinkles 2014." This was the third (almost annual) "Wrinkles" musical program at the Harvey Auditorium, with a local cast of performers from ages 55 to 85...

  10. Where will they get the water?

    Everyday I hear about conserving water, the drought, the water table falling, turning off your hose, wildlife are starving, trees are dying, farmers are pulling out fields and orchards, etc. Now I read that 400 new houses are planning to be...

  11. Prop. 47 is part of the solution

    Kern County District Attorney Lisa Green is tough on crime no doubt. But her assertions about Proposition 47, the Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act, strike me as too inflated for the problems of handgun theft and date rape drugs ("Nothing...

  12. Airport bathrooms and Ebola

    I just returned from a trip and had a sickening thought: Just how safe are airport restrooms from Ebola? This would be a harbor of "bodily fluids." Are any precautions being taken to assure us that handles in these bathrooms are checked and...

  13. One nation can end terrorism

    Terrorism takes away the lives of heroes. It takes away the dreams of freedom. It takes away the reason for living. It takes away the hopes for peace in the world. It is beyond the office that a person seeks. It is beyond the latest polls....
