Letter to the editor: Bring back driver’s education

I don’t know if Hollister is worse or better than other parts of the country, but one thing is for sure, we need serious improvement. The sheer volume of people failing to stop at stop signs, not slowing down for pedestrians, and in general...

Letter to the editor: The cost of safety

Re: Kids on parade Still it gives me pause to worry and remember that children died in Highland Park at an Independence Day parade and in Uvalde in their own classroom. I’m sure this was in the mind of every parent on that July 4...

Letter to the editor: Thanks, San Benito County voters!

On behalf of 80-plus volunteers from our grassroots group, Campaign to Protect San Benito, we’d like to send a huge “THANK YOU!” to the voters of San Benito County. With your help, we were able to collect 4,092 petition signatures and put our citizens’...

Letter to the editor: Build Hollister ‘in’

Letter to the editor: Red flag laws offer gun safety band-aid

The latest episodes of gun violence seem to have tapped into a more concerted public discussion of effective strategy among gun control advocates nationwide. Measures discussed recently range from federally enforced background checks to outright bans on certain types of weapons and accessories.  Another idea...

Letter to the editor: Celebrate peace

When the elderly die, we don’t mind so much but we do mind when the young die. Cancer deaths of the young break our hearts, but war deaths of healthy young agonize us. Memorial Day reminds us of these tragedies. Yet after the marching,...

Letter to the editor: To build or not to build

For many years there has been discussion about building a second public high school in Hollister, and it appears that the San Benito High School district board and administration is “getting serious” about making this happen. As I wrote before, I think their suggesting...

Letter to the editor: It’s Whack-A-Mole season

I frequently want to hug my mailperson even when I find a Strada Verde or Betabel something in my mailbox. When I find those unwanted pieces I feel like I’m playing a Whack-A-Mole game. I am referring to the game where a little mechanical...
