The Willows Food Bank would like to thank those who have made donations since we have taken over the task of operations, beginning Feb. 1.
During that time period, we have provided families over 11,000 meals. We know that the food has been greatly appreciated because of so many being unemployed during this hard economic time.
Glenn County Rangeland Association, GCRA, is to be congratulated on resisting the insidious creep of Agenda 21.
Their resistance to the Foothill Legacy Area and America's Great Outdoors initiative was indeed a victory for property owners in Glenn County.
Kudos to our Board of Supervisors for voting unanimously to draft a resoluti
The ugliness of a wind turbine spoils the beauty of Black Butte. The park already has electrical power, making a wind turbine a tax waste. The turbine cost of $290,000 for 15 years typical life, is not paid for by President Obama's 'green' initiative, but by government deficits that includes 40 cents of borrowing for every dollar spent.
I would like to thank the community for their support in the recent golf tournament fundraiser for the Willows High School golf team that was held March 2 at the Glenn Golf Course.

The Willows Recreation Department's Winter Youth Basketball Program recently completed its season. Our program for first through eighth grades had 15 teams playing at the Willows Intermediate School gym.
Our program's success is largely due to the volunteer coaches and high school students working together to provide a fun, learning expe
The older I get, the more I can appreciate growing up in a town like Willows, especially when there was so much for enterprise downtown.
We used to say it was boring, but then everything is boring when your young.
Back then, we had our own radio station, KIQS, an objective daily newspaper, and a lot of jobs in the private sector

I can’t believe I could write this about any president of our United States: Our current president’s a liar; the big news networks help him lie every day.
If this makes you see red, good. Try listening to Fox News to understand what our president’s doing. I’ve never heard any president call out private news organi

Our country has made great progress against discrimination over the years, in the workforce, in schools, in housing, in society concerning what is available and to whom, even for those challenged physically or mentally. Yet, now it proposes to show great favoritism towards one group of citizens and harsh discrimination toward another group of ci

While searching for ideas to bring the political parties together, one fact seems to stand out: It seems what is lacking on most of the issues is common sense.
For example: The four dams on the Klamath River which are being proposed to be removed.
These dams create enough clean energy for 70,000 residents. This effort is being r

The Sacramento Valley Mirror refers to Sutter High girls basketball team members in a completely inappropriate and inexcusable way, and then attacks its critics for objecting to it.
Then it has the gall to repeat a lie about Tri-County Newspapers on an entirely different matter.
I did not respond the first time. The Mirror story
I believe the US Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Second Amendment (are) the supreme law of the land.
I believe any attempt by the United Nations to subvert or supersede our constitutional rights must be opposed.
I oppose the International Licensing Requirements, International Gun Registry Database and International Ban

A third formal complaint has been lodged against Willows City Manager Steve Holsinger.
The complaint was filed Tuesday by Jeff Williams, who said city officials have ignored previous complaints by him and others that their treatment by the city's most controversial employee has been less than satisfactory.
