Plastic bag tax hurts families

There is no debate when it comes to the importance of recycling in our state, and the need for all Californians to do our part to reduce littering.

But Assembly Democrats have taken the push to encourage more recycling to a new extreme by passing a misguided proposal that will force grocery stores to charge their customers a new tax of at least 25 cents per bag on all the paper and plastic bags they use to take groceries home.

Observing Washington, one would think that at any given moment some pol might explode into a shivering, sweaty bout of honesty with no eye to grandstanding if "business as usual" became business as it ought to be.

We were there during an El Nino when the water that rushed through the creek was so strong that it carried heavy large boulders, storm drain pipes and other debris and deposited it on the flood plain - the Smiser Mule property.

SCV needs to give people reason to come here

More new hotels. Geez. They haven't even gotten around to putting mints on all the new pillows at the corner of the 5 and the 126. I was just wondering who's gonna stay in all these hotel rooms? Has Magic Mountain suddenly gained some new allure that I've missed? I doubt it.

There is no other reason to get off the freeway except to get gas.
