Letter: Openness in process makes voting easy

With a great deal of interest I read, “Primary ballot includes county offices.” It seems as though our Registrar of Voters has mounted a decent defense because he is under attack by some with accusations of “a rigged system.”   Our looming March 5 election has...

Letter: No rainbow at end of mayor’s report

Our rain has been great and so far, no rainbow. When a rainbow beauty does color over gray skies I wonder if Mayor Casey will find her pot of gold under that arc. With careful reading of her “State of the city” report (Free...

Letter: Make peace with people everywhere in 2024

Do you hear what I hear? Is this the last song of the past season or is this the first song of the new season, the new year.  “ A sigh, a sigh…..way up in the sky,” written by a Jewish peace loving woman...

Letter: Foster respect by helping, encouraging youth

After seeing a recent news story regarding the fights at Hollister High School, I started thinking about something you hear a lot of people say today, and I am sure my parents used to say about us and their parents said about them: “These...

Letter: Grinches try to spoil local healthcare

Six Grinches sit on the Hazel Hawkins Memorial Hospital Board; one leads as HHMH CEO. These grinches have sad faces because they are worried, upset and frankly grouchy.  A hospital board member does not have an easy job. That person must read and think a...

Letter: Charge former supervisor for taking signs

What former San Benito County Supervisor Anthony Botelho did was wrong (“DA will not charge Botelho in case of missing sign,” Nov. 24 Hollister Free Lance) and there should be consequences, and because he is a “spokesperson” for the development company they should also...
