  1. CALmatters Commentary: Time ripens for much-needed school data systemRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday Dec 10 | The Daily Republic

    A prudent investor would never consider buying shares of a company and then ignoring how the firm is performing in the marketplace. By the same token, it would be foolhardy for the state to spend $70 billion each year to educate 6 million K-12 students but stubbornly refuse to monitor whether those kids are receiving the schooling they need to become productive members of society.

    That said, sales taxes are still very important to local governments, particularly cities, and often affect local land use decisions - favoring tax-generating retail business over housing, for instance. However, consumer trends are changing, radically affecting how many billions of sales tax dollars are allocated, and the Legislature is just beginning to deal with it.


  5. Consumer Confidential: Should medical bills be in plain words? Yes, duhRead the original story w/Photo

    Apr 8, 2018 | The Daily Republic

    Last week, I called for California to pass a law requiring that medical bills be written in clear language so that patients can understand them. As it stands, bills from hospitals, doctors and insurance companies are frequently indecipherable with their codes, abbreviations, misleading descriptions and lack of any explanation for why charges are so high.


  6. Vanden girls basketball team grabs top honors for 2017Read the original story

    Dec 29, 2017 | The Daily Republic

    How rare was the Vanden High girls basketball team's victory in the CIF State Division II championship game on March 25? Since high school athletics began in the city with Armijo in the 1890s, only four previous teams had won state championships with only one - the 1985-86 Vanden boys basketball squad - earned its crown through direct competition and not a vote. For capping the 2016-27 season with its 64-61 victory over Mater Dei of Santa Ana, the Vikings earned the Daily Republic's Team of the Year, Game of the Year and Coach of the Year awards.
