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: Yes on N: Separating fact from fiction

These lies are nothing new from Measure N’s opponents, who have a long track record of spreading fear and inaccurate information to keep San Benito County from making meaningful progress.

Letters: Wake up to Covid-19 reality

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.
