By Chris Frost chris@tricountysentry.com Oxnard-- I'm sitting here in a limited lockdown, and I am inspired and horrified as I venture out to cover stories and see the after-effect of the virus on this community.   First of all, UV light is not news when it comes to using it as a disinfectant in the body. I watched that virus update five times, and not once did President Trump say inject Lysol, Pine-Sol, or any such item.    The biased media interjected name brands into the conversation, all with the battle cry, "We hate Trump," and we...

Advice for petulant children
4/23/2020 7:27:06 PM

By Chris Frost chris@tricountysentry.com Oxnard-- Okay, I'm sitting here watching a petulant child trying to throw Donald Trump under the bus in the middle of a pandemic.   The leader of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, I guess in trying to calm and comfort a pensive nation, scripted an appearance on TV that makes me think she should sell fizzy douches to the public, rather than representing a group of constituents.    First of all, I am on nobody's side. If I see horse manure, I am going to call B.S. I've supported both...

OUT TO PASTOR - What’s Time Got to Do with It?
4/23/2020 4:06:05 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   After so many weeks, I haven't been able to keep track of them, one day seems just like the other day. Today reminds me of yesterday, and yesterday may be the same as tomorrow. I know I am used to being confused, but I have exceeded my limit on this time aspect. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I have been spending all of our time together. We do not go anywhere except sometimes I slip over to the office and come back. Besides that, we are in each other's company, 24/7. Or is it 7/24? I’m not sure anymore. For the most...

All humankind should heed Pope Francis’ call
4/23/2020 4:04:24 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   During this holy season like no other, on Easter Sunday Pope Francis published a “Letter to Popular Movements and Organizations,” encouraging people struggling for justice for poor and low income people around our world calling for universal access to the “three Ts”: trabajo (work), techo (housing), and tierra (land and food). He said: “If the struggle against COVID-19 is a war, then you are truly an invisible army, fighting in the most dangerous trenches; an army whose only weapons...

JUPITER, Fla.—The Food and Drug Administration in the past month has stepped up seizures of prescription drugs being sent to American customers from pharmacies in Canada and other countries, according to operators of stores in Florida that facilitate the transactions. While seizures at the nation’s international mail facilities have periodically spiked during the past two decades, the latest crackdown is distressing many older customers whose goal is to stay home during the coronavirus pandemic. “It’s very aggravating,” said Cabot Jaffe Sr., 83, of...

By Kelsey Stewart   OMAHA, Neb. (AP)—Cars rushed up and down nearby Underwood Avenue. Birds chirped incessantly. Bicycle wheels whirred and runners' shoes pounded the pavement.

Through a series of neighborhood tai chi practices, Otis hopes she can help her neighbors take their minds off of stress and anxieties during the coronavirus outbreak. For the past week, Otis has hosted the...

Virus sends Holocaust survivors behind doors, back in time
4/17/2020 11:31:04 AM

By Don Babwin   OAK PARK, Ill. (AP)—For Olga Weiss, the order to stay at home is about much more than simply locking her door to the coronavirus. It has awakened fears from decades ago when she and her parents hid inside for two years from Nazis hunting down Jews in Belgium. “It is almost an echo of when we were young, when we were children, the same feeling of not knowing what will happen next,” said Weiss, 83. “We aren't thinking about the virus; we are thinking of what happened to us” back then. Close to 400,000 survivors of the...
