  • Sheriffs of California Oppose Prop 47

    To All Californians: With the General Election less than two weeks away we, the undersigned, urge you to vote NO on Proposition 47. As sheriffs, we can tell you that this measure threatens the safety of our communities and puts our families at risk. Despite being referred to as the “Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act,” [...]

    Turtle Bay is a Cultural Gem That Needs Community Support

    In response to Michael Czehatowski’s recent letter to the editor (Redding Record Searchlight – Oct. 17) which asked why Turtle Bay can’t be run like a business, a couple of things need explanation. A business is a for- profit entity. The owners’ reason for starting and continuing the business is to make money for themselves. As such [...]

    Matt’s Chats with Christine Cantera

    Over the years I’ve built a number of friendships entirely on the Internet.  Either by luck or coincidence, I’ve stumbled across some fascinating, funny, talented, amazing people and while the relationships are virtual, the friendships aren’t.  It’s really cool to get to know someone on the other side of the world without ever so much as [...]

    Free Therapy # 47: See What is Real

    “I know love is all I need. That’s all I know.” Randy Crowell I’ve had a few experiences in my life that I would describe as “spiritual.” That word – spiritual – is special to me. When I connect with it, not just “think” about it; I experience it. I am it and it is [...]

    While driving through downtown Redding yesterday I saw a young scrawny guy on a bike carrying a shoe box under one arm as he zipped through traffic.

    Judicial System Shouldn’t Treat Addicts, Mentally ill, as Criminals

    My family’s struggles turned into our darkest hour. After my son Thom was arrested on March 20, 2013 and again on April 11 of 2013, my husband and I took our son’s keys and disabled his vehicle so he wouldn’t kill anyone, including himself, driving high. It had become grievously clear that, while well-intended, Shasta [...]

    Just Sayin’: Run Out of Gas

    I have always had a great deal of respect for those in our midst who make a long-standing commitment and follow through week in and week out, whether anyone is looking or not. No, I’m not talking about marriage here, although that fits the description. No, I’m thinking more of those who, with no time [...]

    Fiscal Responsibility in the North State: Who is the Actual Fiscal Conservative in this Congressional Race?

    As a woman who has managed a family budget for over 30 years, and as a former manager with responsibility over million-dollar budgets, I am deeply concerned about the fiscal irresponsibility shown by our current Congress, especially in the House of Representatives, and in the group my opponent has chosen to ally himself with for [...]

    •Am I the only person in the world who can’t take a selfie? Distorted nose and one buggy eye, no subject matter…I look like a very ugly fish in every one. •I think I’ve figured out I can’t get help with a selfie. •Tried a new turbo self hair cutter…have this sorta rocky raccoon thing [...]
