    It’s hard to imagine that any school would have a problem with a book about a Christian family that helped Jews escape the Holocaust. But Springs Charter Schools in Temecula, Calif., not only had a problem with “The Hiding Place,” they also took issue with any other book that was written by a Christian author or included a Christian message. “We do not purchase sectarian educational materials and do not allow sectarian materials on our state-authorized lending shelves,” Superintendent Kathleen Hermsmeyer wrote in a letter to attorneys at the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI). Pacific Justice Institute is representing a parent...

    The parents of a 6-year-old girl said their daughter was humiliated when a teacher interrupted the child’s one-minute speech and told her to sit down because she’s “not allowed to talk about the Bible in school,” attorneys for the California family allege. The incident occurred Dec. 19 inside a first grade classroom at Helen Hunt-Jackson Elementary School in Temecula, Calif. The previous day the teacher instructed boys and girls to find something at home that represented a family Christmas tradition. They were supposed to bring the item to school and share the item in a classroom presentation. Brynn Williams decided...

    While it may not rival the intensity given the planned building of a mosque near Ground Zero in New York City, passions ran high Tuesday and early Wednesday morning in Temecula over the proposal to build a mosque. When all was said and done, the Temecula City Council early Wednesday morning unanimously signed off on a proposed mosque after a marathon eight-hour hearing that went back-and-forth from vitriolic rants from residents labeling Muslims as terrorists to interfaith leaders noting the peaceful virtues of Islam. In the end, the council’s decision was made entirely based on mundane issues like traffic, parking...

    Temecula [CA] officials are preparing for another large crowd and another long night Tuesday when the City Council hears the appeal of a planning panel's decision approving plans for a mosque. The Planning Commission voted 5-0 on Dec. 1 to approve a permit and development plan for the Islamic Center of Temecula Valley's mosque in the city's rural Nicolas Valley. The vote followed a roughly five-hour hearing in which more than 80 people spoke, many from outside Temecula, to the audience's cheers and jeers. Emotions boiled to the point where the commission chairman threatened to remove disruptive people. Anti-mosque protesters...

The annual Can Do Day event recognizes the time when President Ronald Reagan commended the people of Temecula for their self-reliance and initiative in building the sports park that now bears his name. On March 3, 1983, while addressing the US Olympic committee, President Reagan remarked, “The folks in a rather small town, Temecula…got together and built themselves a sports park, held fundraising barbecues and dinners.

Attorney Bob Tyler said 17-year-old junior Brittney Cowles became very upset Thursday after her creative writing teacher allegedly called local Christian parents "crazy" and "prejudiced" for keeping their children home from school to protest a new state law that some parents contend promotes a homosexual agenda in public schools.

Case in point is the recent "peace vigil" staged at the Temecula Duck Pond and led by Jeeni Criscenzo. The Jan. 15 Duck Pond vigil drew about 70 peace activists under the guise of "Bring Their Buddies Home." The presence of these left-wing activists also drew about 30 conservative counter-protesters. Full disclosure ---- I helped organize this counter-rally with local Republicans and members of FreeRepublic.com and ProtestWarrior.com. We questioned the Democrats' "cut and run" agenda...

    "Jobs Americans won't do" By: RICK REISS - Commentary Temecula has become an epicenter in the debate on illegal immigration. Last year, the Temecula Border Patrol station conducted numerous sweeps of illegal immigrants throughout the region. Political pressure quickly ended this operation. To his chagrin, a top Homeland Security official later faced an outraged public for shutting down these sweeps. Public outrage over the federal government's failure to control immigration spawned the creation of voluntary citizen patrols along the border. One such Minuteman Project effort just recently finished in Campo. A similar border watch project is scheduled for the Otay...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Tucked into last week's otherwise predictable California election results lay a cautionary tale about the election year's most uncovered issue: illegal immigration. Republican Rep. David Dreier, the 24-year Los Angeles-area veteran who chairs the powerful House Rules committee, won re-election to his House seat with just under 54 percent of the vote, down from 64 percent in 2002. His Democratic opponent, Cynthia Matthews, won almost 43 percent of the vote, despite spending just over $31,000 in her campaign, compared to more than $900,000 spent by Dreier. A Libertarian candidate won 3.5 percent of the vote. While...

    The series of sweeps by Border Patrol agents in the Inland Empire and San Diego County appear to be over, but the political fallout may last until the November election. Rep. Joe Baca (D-San Bernardino), a staunch Latino rights advocate, jumped into the political storm by leading a protest of the sweeps — which netted more than 450 suspected illegal immigrants — and helping prompt federal officials to suspend the roundups. Because of his activism, Baca has become a lightning rod of criticism from supporters of the sweeps and from a Southern California Border Patrol union whose members felt the...

Organizers set up a stage for various speakers to address residents who gathered on both sides of the street. Many supporters came with signs bearing phrases such as "Illegal aliens are criminals" and "We love the Border Patrol." The rally came in response...
