Charlie Vignola: Terror in Paris

The year 2015 started off with a bang last week: from the Republican-dominated 114th Congress taking office and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell claiming Republicans deserve some credit for the robust economic recovery they had nothing to do with; to Gen. David Petraeus facing felony charges from the FBI for leaking state secrets to his mistress.

David Hegg: Over time, criticism can help you in your life

Gary Horton: California’s most important resource

Californians, not water, and certainly not almonds, are our state's most valuable resource.

Jim de Bree: Stop playing with the IRS

As a CPA nearing retirement, today marks the conclusion of my 41st tax season. I have seen a lot in my career. But until recently, one thing that I could always count on is the ability of the IRS to properly administer the tax laws.

David Hegg: Why it’s important to rediscover tolerance

Unless you've been sleeping under a rock somewhere you're acutely aware we are becoming an increasingly touchy society. It seems the new national sport is overreaction to issues that, while not unworthy of discussion, are certainly not worthy of vitriolic outbursts and mean-spirited acts of violence.

Charlie Vignola: Declaring war on radicals

A common sticking point for hawkish conservatives recently has been President Obama's seeming reluctance to state declaratively that we are at war with "radical Islam," and they see his failure to take this "obvious" step as some sign of appeasement or cowardice that gives aid and comfort to our enemies.

David Hegg: The resurrection of Christ

One day I'd like to ask those women just what they were thinking as they made their way in the early morning to the place where, just days before, they had watched him be buried. They watched as his body was hastily wrapped in linen and put in a tomb hewn from solid rock. They watched as a huge stone was rolled over the opening, and the Roman guard sealed the tomb with the official seal. It was preparation day and Sabbath was beginning. Proper preparation of the body would have to wait.

Gary Horton: Lobbyists aren’t your friends

A funny story hit the news back in 2011. "Congress declares pizza is a vegetable." Seemingly outlandish, there was more truth than not to the story. The Obama Administration and USDA had proposed new dietary standards for school lunches in an effort to address America's growing childhood obesity problem. Previously, just two tablespoons of tomato paste spread thinly on a cheesy, doughy, fat-inducing pizza pie was considered sufficient to quality pizza literally as a vegetable to meet school lunch guidelines. The Agriculture Department wanted to get real, insisting that one-half cup of tomatoes makes a true serving, but the ...
