Should I get a COVID-19 vaccine if I’ve had the virus?

Should I get a COVID-19 vaccine if I’ve had the virus? Yes. Regardless of previous infection, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says people should plan on getting vaccinated when it’s their turn.

With vaccines rolling out, pay attention to that second dose

Over the next few weeks, millions of people worldwide will be getting their first shots of a vaccine to protect them against COVID-19, including many people in your audience.

The Coming Dawn

A new era, a new beginning is coming on January 20th, 2021. It would seem that a poem by Catherine Pulsifer was written within the past few days but it was written long before our Capitol building was attacked by seditious right-wing thugs whose intention was to overthrow the will of the people and their votes.

As more children become uninsured, advocates are hoping Biden will reverse...

The uninsured rate for American children has grown each of the last three years, and many health policy experts blame policies and rhetoric put forward by the Trump administration.

Turning the Corner

As my last official action as President of the Democrats of Hemet-San Jacinto, I want to wish all of you a very prosperous, healthy and Happy New Year. It has been a pleasure to write articles for the past year. I will continue to submit articles but simply as a citizen, not representing the Democrats.

Happy Holidays

The holidays are upon us but nothing about them will be normal. Covid-19 has changed many things including the way we interact with others. Many of us will not be celebrating in person with the family and friends we normally celebrate with. Some of us will be zooming our get-togethers, myself included.

Being Human

If you Google "human being," you will see the following: "a man, woman, or child of the species Homo sapiens, distinguished from other animals by superior mental development, power of articulate speech, and upright stance."


There are many “together” quotes. It is a recognition that together we are stronger. It is a recognition that together we can accomplish things that alone we can never do. Teamwork is necessary to winning in sports. Teamwork is critical for our military to be successful. For those of you who served in the military, you know basic training was as much about building teamwork as developing skills.

Vista del Valle/Rawling’s Road to Simpson Park

As I do not wish to hazard the automobile traffic between my garage in San Jacinto and the route up to Simpson Park, I load my bike in the Tundra and take Columbia St. almost until it ends at Stetson Ave. I take out the bike, cross Stetson and continue until I hit Crest, one of the lovelier streets in Hemet.

What America Really Means?!

A lot of our citizens take America for granted. They never learn to appreciate the true value of this great nation of ours or what it truly stands for. Yes, we have the MAGA crowd, and they somehow feel superior to the rest of us in being American, but they don’t know what really makes America great.
