Window on the World Column | Summer Travel Woes 2022

I am a British Citizen, born in Aldeburgh, Suffolk, in 1963. I have lived in the USA since 1988 and have been a dual national and dual passport holder since 2003 without incident. I have always felt safer traveling the world with two passports,...

Funny Papers Again Column | Disunion, Union and Serenity

For the past few weeks I have been telling everyone I think cares to hear it that if they want to enjoy the Arroyo Seco River, they needed to do it posthaste, as that particular stream is going to die before the Fourth of...

Letter to the Editor | Correcting the Past

To the Editor: I enjoyed reading the article on the SAVHA walking tour of downtown King City (“History Buffs,” May 11). However, when people see something in print they assume it to be the way it was.  The article said, “the Reel Joy … had a...

Worthy to Print Column | The Eternal Flame

If you have read any of my scribbling over time, you know I’m a lifelong conservative. I don’t know exactly when I discovered this. Although I can’t remember much about politics until my platoon sergeant and I were sitting on the hood of a...

For this week’s column I had a nice little piece forming about how to get on national television and make a fool of one’s self; based on personal experience, of course. But a situation arose right in front of my nose, or at least...

Worthy to Print Column | A Mother’s Love

This is a story I wrote 20 two years ago. I wrote it to honor my mother on Mother’s Day. She didn’t know I would do this and probably would have asked me not to write it, but it was a gift that came...

Window on the World Column | You Are Not a Tree…

I saw this line on social media and I loved it so much. Too many people in the free world complain about where they live, banter on about what they don’t care for in that place — the politics, the weather, the terrain or...

Funny Papers Again Column | All’s Fair in Love’n the Fair War

(NOTE: After completing this column, I was informed there will not be a talent show at this year’s Salinas Valley Fair, but I’m going with this anyhoo. —SCW) If the title of this week’s Funny Papers Again confuses or confounds you, then think how I...

Funny Papers Again Column | Looking Back and Seeing Ahead

Before I get into the bits and pieces of today’s column, let me offer a mea culpa regarding some misinformation in last week’s column. I stated that KCHS Class of 1972 has their 50th class reunion scheduled for the same date as the Classes...
