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: New residents have a right to oppose growth

Lately I have been coming across the refrain that newer residents of San Benito County are somehow hypocritical if they voice concern or opposition to the out-of-control housing growth. This could not be further from the truth. Our newly settled neighbors have some of...
