In the November 18, 2016 edition of the Daily Record, there was a front-page article, “Capes Dam debate stirs a storm on social media,” which described the debate between San Marcos City Council Member Melissa Derrick (wants to remove Capes Dam) and local businessman Brian Olson (wants to preserve & restore Capes Dam).

Why ‘deplorables’ elected Trump

Tom Purcell- Synidicated Columnist

“They still don’t get what the Trump win was all about. All those people protesting and calling their fellow citizens racists, sexists and xenophobes don’t have a clue why Hillary really lost.”

“It’s a bit silly to protest nearly 60 million Americans who exercised their constitutional right by voting for a candidate the protesters opposed. The fact is, there are dozens of sound reasons why millions voted for Trump.”
