At the risk of being accused of beating a dead horse, I’m going to write another column in opposition to High Speed Rail, at least as it is being conceived in California.
Mostly excerpts of columnists published in The Madera Tribune.
I perused faithfully Trib columnist and runner (and editor) Farin Montanez’s writing of her trip to the Northern Mojave and Death Valley in the February 19th edition and immediately became homesick.
“Empty is the argument of the philosopher that does not relieve any human suffering.”
— Epicurus (341-270 B.C.)
Madera is my community, our hometown. Together we make Madera a community, not just a wide spot on the map.
“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from faith.”
— 1 Timothy: 6-10
The history of law enforcement in Madera for the most part reflects the very best of the town’s past.
There has been a lot of thievery of farm equipment, tools, etc. going in the Central Valley lately.
