Worthy to Print Column: The lost papers

Do you remember the year 2000? I had forgotten a lot about that year until I had a chance to visit my brother, who lives in Idaho, last week. He loves Idaho, but I didn’t lose anything up there. However, it had been a...

Guest Column: City of King’s efforts to maintain a balanced budget

Worthy to Print Column: Always darkest before the dawn

I had to go to South San Francisco on business yesterday. It was really hot while I was up there. Not something I have seen often. Usually there is a breeze off the ocean where my customer has his plant. But it was missing...

Still Carin’ About King City Column: Beautification Week 2020

The year 2020 finds us with a Beautification Week unlike we’ve had in 28 years. We’re calling it a scaled-back version. Group events like the extra garbage collection provided by Waste Management, the Citywide Yard Sale and the Chamber/Rotary Kick-off BBQ were all canceled...

Worthy to Print Column: Liar, liar pants on fire

Today I would like to tell you that the emergency is over. I’d like to say that you can go anywhere and be with whomever you want. No more masks and spacing to worry about. I’d like to tell you that a couple of...

Adventure Abounds Column: A house divided

America may have a great multitude of blemishes on our record, but our existence stands as a testament that diverse groups united can accomplish greatness. Which is why it’s so strange to watch the developing national news about how we’re coming apart with a...
