RICH IN THOUGHT - To Keep Oakdale Safe It Needs ‘Y’

I've been covering Oakdale government and crime regularly now for nearly three years and in that time I can honestly say I've seen a serious concerted effort by elected officials and city staff to save the city money, making cuts where available, and directing resources for maximum efficiency.

With a brilliant sunset sinking into the evening sky, the fiery orange, the hot pinks, the hues of deep blue with purple mixed in ...

By the time you read this I'll have returned from my business trip but as I'm writing ahead of schedule, I haven't left yet. It's kind of like writing about the future!
So, each year, I go to the Romance Writers of America national conference and each year I run around like a chicken with its head cut off because I'm not prepared.

Don’t Cover Handicapped Spaces

Dear Editor,
The longer I live in Oakdale the more disappointed I get. I see the local merchants don't want my business because I keep seeing the disabled parking spaces painted over. I see where the outside businesses are keeping the disabled spaces, but the smaller local businesses are painting them over and not replacing them (last strip mall to do this that I used to visit is on the corner of Oak and 108). Funny but there is also a kidney dialysis center there that would cater to the disabled, and they kept their two spaces, but two ...

Student athletes and their families are going to have to reach in their own pockets to pay for transportation to and from sporting events.
