Just Say Yes

By Trudy Wischemann In case you missed it last week, friends, it was a rousing good time at the Lindsay City Council meeting on the 12th.

Dear Editor, I couldn’t tell if a recent story (County Dairies Begin Passing Gas, Feb. 27) regarding dairy digesters is a piece of journalism or a piece of propaganda for the dairy industry and SoCalGas. For starters, not one quote, idea, counterpoint or statement was presented by an environmental expert. And the piece ends conveniently […]
