EDITORIAL: Granite makes for mighty tough chewing

You can’t eat the scenery. Any way you cut it, Eagle Cap granite is hard on the molars. And the Blue Mountains aren’t made of blue cheese.


EDITORIAL: No one comes out a winner

The shooting of seven cows off of Glass Hill Road has easily been one of the hottest topics locally. As the story has unfolded, many facets have been unveiled. The situation is a complicated one and involves some very different interests. 

 


Don’t hold firewood supplies hostage

Being the weather forecaster for San Diego TV has to be one of the easiest jobs in the world. “Sixty-eight degrees and sunny. Back to you, Joe.”

Keeping students on track

A new policy in the Cove School District could be a real win for both students and educators.
