Out to Pastor - Have nose, will sneeze
3/19/2020 4:06:00 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   Many things about me could be called into question, and a lot has. I get that. However, the most attractive thing about me is my nose. I am not sure of the reason why, it looks like anybody else’s nose.  My nose, however, attracts everything around it, from dust to pollen and other unmentionables. If there is something not attracted to my nose I haven’t found it yet. This past week has been no exception. If it was in the air, it was in my nose. I do not know why my nose is so attractive to things, but there it is. I am the one...

Amid decline, newspapers press less for records in court
3/19/2020 3:57:06 PM

By Amy Taxin   Shane Fitzgerald has pushed for public records in court to help his reporters uncover details of a destructive school fire, the police shooting of an inmate and a public defender who wasn’t doing much work. But there are many instances where his newspaper group in suburban Philadelphia has not, especially since the declines in the news industry walloped the budgets for local news coverage and left little to cover the costs of court fights for public access. “You really have to assess your risk there, and, do you really have a shot at getting...

By Chris Frost chris@tricountysentry.com Oxnard-- You know, I spend a lot of time covering a ton of stories in the area, and that list is growing. In the last few weeks, I have been to Oxnard, Port Hueneme, Camarillo, and Ventura.   When I put together the paper each week, I try to find fun things, important issues, and news that will keep you up to date on what's going on in my home city, Oxnard.

Letter to the editor
3/12/2020 8:14:44 PM

I attended a recent city meeting on homelessness and am still in recovery.    The utter lack of preparation by the city of a presentation to ask for $35 million dollars for an imaginary, two-years-down-the-line shelter for the same 110 residents was, frankly, frightening.    Equally concerning was the continuing fixation of the community on bodily functions. Is it possible that the city residents don't know that all public restrooms in the city have been locked down for over a year?   And don't accuse the homeless of that...

Business as usual at North American box office amid virus
3/12/2020 12:47:01 PM

By Lindsey Bahr   LOS ANGELES (AP)—North American audiences are not staying away from theaters amid virus concerns, according to the weekend's box office numbers. Disney and Pixar's “Onward” topped the charts as expected and the Ben Affleck basketball drama “The Way Back” also opened normally. “Onward” earned $40 million from 4,310 North American locations, according to studio estimates on Sunday. It's on the lower end of openings for the studio, more in line with “The Good Dinosaur's” launch in 2015....

Woman finds light in fight against Parkinson's disease
3/12/2020 12:34:56 PM

By Yue Stella Yu   COLUMBUS, Miss. (AP)—Lap after lap, Mary Anna Nelson kept on going. Walking turned into jogging. Her eyes were fixed on the path ahead so that she would not trip and fall. No one could overtake her—that, she made sure of. On a sunny morning, a competitive Nelson managed to finish first place during an exercise at the Frank P. Phillips YMCA Adaptive Fitness program in Columbus, leaving most of her elderly peers behind by a large margin. Morning exercises like that have always been part of Nelson's daily routine—perhaps more...

Victims targeted by their faith routinely bilked by unregulated ‘health care sharing ministries’
3/12/2020 12:25:54 PM

By Audrey Dutton   BOISE, ID (AP)—Susan Calvin was healthy. Her family was, too. But their health insurance premiums and deductibles were climbing. When she started shopping for an insurance plan for 2017 and lamented the cost, Calvin says, her insurance broker suggested trying another option. What she didn't fully realize at the time was that she wasn't buying health insurance. She was signing up for a health care sharing ministry, the Idaho Statesman reported. A few years after dropping her health insurance and joining a sharing ministry, she warns,...

Senior couple lost in woods survived on muddy water, fern fronds
3/5/2020 10:47:41 AM

INVERNESS, Calif. (AP)—A couple who went missing in the woods of Northern California for a week survived by drinking from a muddy puddle and eating fern fronds, said rescuers who had given up hopes of finding them alive. Carol Kiparsky, 77, and Ian Irwin, 72, were found Saturday in a densely forested area near Tomales Bay, a narrow inlet about 30 miles (48 kilometers) miles north of San Francisco, and were airlifted to a hospital for treatment of hypothermia. The couple's rescue was the first of two dramatic rescues over the weekend. Crews on Sunday found a missing man in...

What should I write about this week?
3/4/2020 6:53:08 PM

By Chris Frost chris@tricountysentry.com I have been sitting around wondering what I should write about, and the one thing I know for sure is that I need a break from the election. So, here's the deal about that. If you don't get involved and vote, give us a break.   With that said, what should I write about this week? For a while, I thought it would be a good idea to talk about those people who tailgate you in a 25-mile-per-hour-zone thinking that I will speed up, but I decided it would make more sense to slow down to 23-miles-per-hour and watch them go wild....
