OPINION

  • Rehmeyer: When Will They Ever Learn

    Longtime Yorba Linda resident Sharon Rehmeyer has spent her career educating young students. In retirement she is now trying to educate decision makers as to the danger of building houses in a fire zone coupled with access issues.

  • Mosko: Ticking Time Bomb at San Onofre Nuclear Plant

    Sarah "Steve" Mosko writes that Orange County residents need to support efforts to revoke the California Coastal Commission's granting of a permit for storing nuclear waste near San Onofre State Beach.

  • Headrick: Without Our Consent, San Onofre has become a Nuclear Waste Dump

    Gary Headrick writes that SDGE has turned South Orange County into a default nuclear waste dump, due to a shortsighted solution that leaves OC extremely vulnerable until all the nuclear waste has been removed from the former San Onofre nuclear power generating station.
