Lewis River at Dawn

Lewis River at Dawn

The tulip farm in Woodland is close to the Lewis River, and in fact once you exit I-5 you drive along the river to get to the farm.  I had a few extra minutes before sunrise, so I made a short stop along the river's edge to photograph the river an...

Anonymity and the Vanguard and Questions to the Mayor

by Matt Williams Recently the topic of anonymity and the Vanguard has been discussed from a number of perspectives.  There is no easy answer to this issue, but regardless of what one’s opinion is of whether or not anonymous posters should be allowed on the Vanguard, I think most everybody would agree that anonymity...

Monday Morning Thoughts: Sodomite Suppression Exposes Mockery of System

Monday Morning Thoughts: Sodomite Suppression Exposes Mockery of System

It sounds like something we would have come up with a joke in college. Just as Jonathan Swift once opined about eating babies as a solution to the Irish Famine, passing an absurd proposition would expose the proposition system for the fraud it really is. Except this was no joke put forward by Huntington...

Eye on the Courts: Supervisor Rexroad Steps into the War of Words

We have been covering the back and forth between Yolo County DA Jeff Reisig and Judges Kathleen White and Dave Rosenberg. Most recently we recounted the story on Saturday.

Seaside Gardens in Carpinteria, CA

Seaside Gardens in Carpinteria, CA

Since our recent trip to Southern California was a family vacation, I only visited two nurseries and only bought one plant (a kangaroo paw hybrid called ‘Red Cross’). I know, it’s a shocker, but there simply wasn’t time (or room in the car) for more.

Sunday Commentary II: Does the Community Support Yard Waste Bins?

As one who has encouraged the city to get behind the use of social engagement and other such tools to facilitate public dialogue I am somewhat sympathetic to the city here.

Sunday Commentary: Talking About the MRAP

Greetings from Florida where it’s neither sunny nor warm. In fact, it’s colder here than there. While I understand that there are some who believe that this isn’t the time to have a public policy discussion – the Vanguard is primarily about public policy.

Serendipity

We had a fabulous ground fog yesterday morning, so I thought I should head back to the tulip farm in Woodland to see if the fog was hanging there too. Turns out there was no fog in the tulip field, but as I drove past the large farm building looking to...

My View: DA-Judge Battle Over Turf, Miss New Opportunities

Mar 28, 2015

Two weeks ago we reported that Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig went to the Yolo County Board of Supervisors to discuss what he saw as a rising crime rate resulting from AB 109 and Prop 47. He leveled some of his concern at the Judges when he said, “The challenge, frankly, is the...
