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...

Our children are leading us—hallelujah!
1/17/2020 11:10:29 AM

By Marian Wright Edelman   In December Time magazine named then-16-year-old climate change activist Greta Thunberg their 2019 Person of the Year—the youngest person ever honored. Time noted that this brave, determined teenager represents a new wave of young people who refuse to accept the world adults have created for them: “Her global climate strike is the largest and most international of all the youth movements, but it’s hardly the only one: teenagers in the U.S. are organizing against gun violence and flocking to progressive candidates; students in...

Experts predicted trade recession in 2016 if Trump won, instead the opposite happened
1/17/2020 11:07:03 AM

By Robert Romano   Remember Smoot-Hawley. That was the rallying cry of #NeverTrump all throughout 2016, that if elected, President Donald Trump would levy tariffs and the world would fall into recession, or maybe even another Great Depression. Because the Smoot-Hawley tariffs were the cause of the Great Depression, or so the thinking goes. I’d say it was the strong dollar that made a bad recession worse in the 1930s, but that’s another argument. The question is what impact Trump’s tariffs had on the real economy versus the expectations of the punditry...

To one it’s Monday to another it’s Wednesday
1/17/2020 10:59:41 AM

Dr. James L. Snyder   Time goes so fast at times that I do not always remember what day it is. I get so busy trying to get my work done that I forget if it’s Monday or Friday. It is a good thing I am getting older because I have a built-in excuse for forgetting what day it is. Recently, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I spent some time in St. Augustine for some vacation days. We don’t often get to have vacation days, but when we do, we try to enjoy it. Just down a few blocks from our motel is a place we love dinning. It’s called the...

Everyone should denounce political violence
1/14/2020 4:01:41 PM

FAIRFAX, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning issued the following statement urging members of Congress and candidates for President to join with President Donald Trump in denouncing all political violence: “While the nation grieves the senseless loss of life in El Paso and Dayton, President Donald Trump has rightly denounced the racist, white nationalist attack in El Paso and the attack in Dayton by a radical, pro-Antifa leftist who thought his political opponents were Nazis who deserved to die. There is nothing controversial about denouncing...

Pension Crisis: Grassley, Alexander seek to tackle forecasted union pension collapse
1/14/2020 4:00:32 PM

By Rick Manning   Our nation’s pension systems are in trouble.  Underfunded with outsized promises to beneficiaries who are living longer, the death rattles of the defined benefit pension system, which promises a fixed amount of money per month for retirees, are now audible. There are many facets of this problem and I will focus upon the four distinct groups of defined benefit plan beneficiaries. Note those who have their retirement funds in 401(k) accounts are not included in this discussion because the pension payments for those are dependent upon the amount...
