  • As I sit here and read a letter to the City of El Cajon from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) San Diego & Imperial Counties about its perception of El Cajon’s ordinance banning sharing food the homeless in public places, it reinforces my beliefs that the council has once again stepped out of bounds in its role as leaders in our community. Elegantly written it is firm in its stand that this ordinance violates the freedom of expression in charitable giving.

  • California State Senator Joel Anderson (R-Alpine) received the Chuck Nichols & Pierre Frazier Bridge Builder Award from the USS Midway Museum's Diversity & Inclusion Committee today at the Sixth Annual Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday Luncheon.

  • I have written countless features in my time, but when requested to write about my late father, Bill Dickens, I had mixed emotions.

    William C. Dickens was born to his birth mother, Mrs. De La Valle at a local hospital in Los Angeles on March 6, 1949. He was born a little over 10 pounds. Unfortunately for young William, his birth mother had already had several children and opted to put 3-day-old William up for adoption.
