Light your candle in the darkness
2/13/2020 3:13:30 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman Founder, President Emerita   So many people feel so overwhelmed and disempowered by the stress of the current moment that they convince themselves they can’t make a difference. So they don’t even try. They bury their talents in the ground and let their spirits wither on the vine of life. I hope they will bestir themselves at least to say every day as an anonymous old man did: “I don’t have the answers, life is not easy, but my heart is in the right place.” It is so important not to let ourselves off the hook or to...

Did I just call myself?
2/13/2020 3:12:20 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   I am old enough to remember those days when there was nothing like cell phones. Oh, those quiet, golden silent days. At the time, I did not realize just how wonderful that time was. Every time you needed to make a phone call, you had to go to where a phone was. Those were the days of the telephone booth. Remember those? That's were Clark Kent turned into Superman. We don’t have Superman today because there are no telephone booths. I well remember the day I bought my first cell phone. I hesitated because I enjoyed my quiet time. However,...

How would you spend $50M helping animals?
1/30/2020 10:09:12 AM

By Marcia Mayeda Director, LAACC   On January 10, 2020 California Governor Gavin Newsom released his proposed 2020-21 budget. To the wide acclaim of animal welfare advocates throughout the state, the budget includes a $50 million one-time grant for the University of California Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program to develop a grant program for animal shelters. The program will include interactive group training for approximately 100 shelters, selected on a voluntary basis and prioritized by need; California and regional best practices summits; and an online resource...

In appreciation: Kobe Bryant, a life defined by hard work
1/30/2020 10:07:08 AM

By Tim Reynolds   It was April 14, 2016. It was the first full day of Kobe Bryant’s new chapter as a retired NBA player. All he had done the night before was score a mind-boggling 60 points in his farewell game, not getting out of Staples Center until around midnight. His staff at Kobe, Inc. were certain they would beat their boss to the office that morning. They were wrong. He beat everyone there by two hours. “We have a lot of work to do,” Bryant told them. Even in retirement, Bryant found no substitute for hard work. Kobe Bean Bryant was...

Column: NFL shamelessly commandeers Kaepernick's cause
1/30/2020 9:47:23 AM

By Paul Newberry   The images are haunting. Dramatic music, punctuated by the beeping sound of an open car door. The silhouette of former NFL star Anquan Boldin, wearing sunglasses and sitting at the wheel of his vehicle. “Yeah, I'll never forget that night,” Boldin says, before going on to recount how his cousin, Corey Jones, was gunned down by a plainclothes police officer while waiting by his disabled automobile on the side of a Florida exit ramp. It's a public-service announcement for the campaign “Inspire Change.” What makes the...

Letter to the editor
1/29/2020 6:00:52 PM

Dear Editor, Measure B, the so called “Government Accountability and Ethics Act”, is a defective incumbent protection scheme written at the direction of City Manager Alexander Nguyen and placed on the March 2020 primary ballot by the Oxnard City Council.  It is designed to extend city council terms, handcuff the council’s political challengers and kneecap several citizen-sponsored initiatives qualified for the November 2020 ballot. To lure you into voting for it, Measure B includes false promises of reform on topics that the City’s...

A prayer for my youngest son
1/29/2020 5:31:59 PM

By Chris Frost chris@tricountysentry.com   So, I am rumbling around the house after saying goodbye to my son this weekend. My son, Air Force Sergeant Colin R. Frost, is at an unspecified location in the middle east for the next six months.   He proudly serves his country and has for years. As a father, it certainly wasn't the career I hoped he'd land on, but I support my sons, and I am proud of them, no matter what.   One thing about my children, Travis, my oldest, and Colin, who we affectionately call "The Sarge," have been...

Failing at greatness
1/24/2020 3:22:22 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman   In January 1967, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. took a rare sabbatical to write what would become his last book: Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community? In the final chapter he raised this question: “Not too many years ago, Dr. Kirtley Mather, a Harvard geologist, wrote a book entitled Enough and to Spare. He set forth the basic theme that famine is wholly unnecessary in the modern world. Today, therefore, the question on the agenda must read: Why should there be hunger and privation in any land, in any city, at any table, when man has the...

Column: MLB whistleblower deserves applause, not criticism
1/24/2020 3:20:45 PM

By Paul Newberry   When future generations are documenting baseball history, Mike Fiers will surely be remembered as one of the game's most significant figures. Not necessarily for what he did on the field, though tossing a pair of no-hitters is certainly a worthy achievement. Let's just hope all his fellow players give him a big tip of the cap when he takes the mound this season. After all, Fiers blew the lid off one of the most nefarious schemes in the history of the national pastime, a scandal that ranks right up there with the Black Sox and the Steroids...

Please don't mess with my peanut butter
1/24/2020 3:10:19 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   Normally, I'm a rather calm, cool and collected person. Actually, my creditors trying to collect things from me, mostly money, are responsible for this and I have been officially collected. If I could only collect my thoughts, but the pieces are too small and too few. Anybody who knows me knows I am not easily rattled by anything. I let the chips fall where they may because I know from whence they came. I am not susceptible to the various rumors making their way around on a regular basis. All the debate about global warming, for example, has...
