Letters: PORC tried to bully board of supervisors

The proponents of a radical initiative have picked the worst possible time to put a stranglehold on the local economy.

Letters: Wake up to Covid-19 reality

Your idea that “the government” somehow coddles us is absurd given the facts of how the current administration has allowed "the greatest nation on earth" to have the worst death toll of any—210,000 as of this week, in case you missed it.

Opinion: Freedom and restrictions

It seems very convenient to issue a new wide ranging Stay At Home order one month before the new Covid-19 vaccine is supposed to be rolled out.

Opinion: Threats and promises

It's like someone got the turkey wishbone and pulled both ends wishing for business as usual. Nodes keep popping up like ducks in a carnival shooting gallery. It's time leaders faced reality: time to be creative, time to be thoughtful.

Letter to the editor: For the love of Errol

PORC has been relentlessly trying to convince people to direct their anti-growth anger towards Betabel. They've used lies and scare tactics and seem to have no conscience, or respect for the community they're lying to.

Letter: Keep Hollister clean

It would be wonderful to be able to look only in front of you and not look down at the ground that is littered with garbage such as plastic bottles, metal cans, paper coffee cups, plastic bags and so on.

Letters to the editor: End Covid-19 restrictions, ‘good old boy attitude’

It is time to speak up for our lost freedoms and personal liberties. Because as history has so clearly shown us, each tiny step matters. It is time to recognize, beware, and protest the little steps—while we still have the freedom to do so.

Opinion: Public needs more info on Covid-19

One of the cornerstones of our legal system and our society in general is the concept of innocent until proven guilty, but with the pandemic our leaders have switched it to guilty until proven innocent. The California Department of Public Health, in my opinion, is at or near the top of that list.

Letter: Make remote meeting access permanent

As a longtime advocate for open government access in San Benito County, though, I can say with certainty that allowing virtual access to public meetings—along with allowing traditional in-person involvement—would improve the level of openness in local government.

Letters: Betabel pamphlets unwelcome

The flames of this cartoon certainly grabbed my attention or better yet my thoughts as I puzzled over the readout on the hand-held device picturing the country in a conflagration.
