Stephen St. John claims that my refusal to counter Mr. Campanella’s writings translates into me not being able to prove him wrong. No, Stephen, the translation is actually exactly what I said it was; that his letters are paragraph after paragraph of rambling hyperbole, exaggerations, out of …

Chatter on recent local social media complained about what happened in Banning when three members of the City Council lived in the Sun Lakes Country Club. At that time the elections were citywide. As SLCC constitutes nearly 20 percent of the population, it looks like a lack of interest by mu…

Re: Gary Hironimus’ letter in last week’s paper: “There is so much wrong with his writings that I won’t even bother to address most of it.” Translation: I can’t prove him wrong with facts, so I’ll just act like I can't be bothered. Also, “the vast majority of violence and oppression...has be…

Gary Campanella has been on a roll lately, with several rambling (and mostly hyperbole) letters attacking Christians and conservative values. There is so much wrong with his writings that I won't even bother to address most of it, but I certainly got a laugh out of his second to last paragra…

My husband and I moved to Beaumont two years ago. We enjoy living here. Friendly people, nice weather and the mountain views are beautiful in the winter! We're a retired couple who enjoy going out to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner whenever we feel like it. We've noticed there aren't many cho…

I'm curious really?. . . . Since we have a water shortage, shouldn't we not be building more homes? Even a business must acquire parking prior to opening for business in almost any town USA.

There was about a 98 percent opposition from local residents who were against the gateway warehouse destruction of our community, which has completely changed our area in every way. Just because a warehouse was put at our doorstep certainly does not mean that it’s now just fine to put in another.

It’s 30 minutes to the start of the Banning High spring Green-and-White football scrimmage last Friday, May 20. I’m shooting the bull with Bronco coach John Tyree and athletic director Keith Chann.

I'm a native Californian and have lived in the Inland Empire over fifty years. As an optimist I keep telling myself things will get better in our lovely state. My positive attitude wants the Republicans to speak out, Democrats to see the downhill spiral of our state, and the Independents to …

I was delighted to learn that the City of Beaumont and the Beaumont-Cherry Valley Recreation and Parks District are planning a new regional park on Cherry Valley Boulevard at the site of the old Danny Thomas Ranch.

I had hoped that the lunacy and possible corruption in Banning was past us when Mr. Pederson left town. It seems like I was wrong.

The Morongo Band of Mission Indians presented a record $5.6 million donation to the San Gorgonio Memorial Hospital Foundation on last Wednesday.

The real freedom fighters are the people of Ukraine they did not ask for what is happening to them, women and men stayed behind to fight protect the land they fought for in the past, fight for democracy die for it, they are being bomb children die, hospitals under attack and schools neighbor…

Thank you to the Record Gazette for their awesome reporting on all the dysfunction that goes on in the City of Banning.

In response to the article on Ukrainian history, I must remind people that its important to view both sides rationally and disregard any viewpoints that drum up these "Dr. Evil" type leaders.
