Letter to the editor
1/15/2020 4:11:26 PM

Dear Editor, The City of Oxnard apparently opposes the disclosure and publishing, for all taxpayers to see, the actual cumulative total cost of several recent Memoranda of Understandings (MOUs) with the City’s unions.  It appears that perhaps the City does not want the public to know the exact cumulative total costs of these MOUs.  The City will only disclose a value which they “call” total cumulative cost, even after repeated demonstrations that these values are incorrect.  The data released by the City understates the true costs of each...

1/14/2020 4:15:10 PM

In 2019, women directed more of the most popular movies than any year before.  Women directed 12 of 2019's top 100-grossing films in 2019, according to a study released by USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative. That percentage of female filmmakers, 10.6%, is greater than researchers have recorded before, suggesting that some measure of change is finally coming to a film industry where inequality behind...

1/14/2020 4:03:33 PM

A coalition of 20 states led by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra filed a petition seeking expedited review, joined by House Democrats and Washington, D.C. They hope to get a Supreme Court hearing and decision by this summer, before the...
