The yearly political wrangling over the state budget costs us money, and a lot of wear and tear on people like school administrators and teachers. Our schoolchildren deserve better, let's pass Proposition 25 in November.
Future bright with women like this
To the lovely family who stopped to help me at Ralphs on Saturday, thank you.
I could not get the key out of the trunk lock, so this family of three stopped. The oldest daughter tried and tried and finally asked if I had Auto Club of Southern California. I said yes, but I didn't have a cell phone. She took hers out, got AAA on the line, gave them all of the information about me, about the car and where we were! As she was leaving she asked if I needed anything else — water, etc.
Thank you to the mother for instilling values in her daughter. With young ladies like this I feel that our future is in good hands!
A good year for women to vote
Thursday marked the 90th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which gave women the precious right to vote. That makes this a good year for 90% of all eligible women to register and vote.
It is estimated that about 50% of eligible voters have not registered. So if you are not registered, the first step is to stop by the City Clerk's Office, Post Office or city library and pick up an application. Fill it out and mail it in. The postage is prepaid.
The second step for all registered voters is to learn about the candidates for Congress in their district and the statewide Senate candidates. Read a good newspaper, explore the information on candidate websites, attend candidate forums and talk to your friends and neighbors.
It is safe to ignore radio, TV and mailer ads. These ads seldom provide any useful information. They are usually negative ads that only attack an opponent.
The third step is to get out and vote on Nov. 2 and take a friend with you. Ninety percent of the women can change America for the better.
Remember, "Voting is the most powerful thing you can do to preserve liberty."
