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...

Letters: No one is above the law

Investigate Botelho, Strada Verde I am very concerned by recent reports that former Supervisor Anthony Botelho was caught pulling down signs alerting citizens to the negative impact of the proposed Strada Verde development. I understand that there have been no charges against him for those...

Letter: Keep space open for living and thriving

The frequent skyward grind of one winged craft tugging another winged but motor-less craft compels me to look up and wonder. Those pilots must see from above what I can only see by the photography that spilled from my mailbox. The arrival of maps and...

What do retired teachers mean to the Hollister, Gilroy, San Martin and Morgan Hill communities? A lot. After years, sometimes decades in the classroom giving back to their students, retired teachers continue to give back to local communities through their pocketbooks and their passion...

Letter: Council is stuck ‘back in time’

Allow me to rearrange your headlines (from the Oct. 20 Free Lance). “Back in time,” needs to move to the right and next to the Sword Swallower. Back in time appropriately describes the actions of the city council. The photo of the parade of...

Letter: Running for reelection

Serving as a San Benito County supervisor for the past two years and nine months has been an extraordinary honor, and I will enthusiastically pursue a second term on the board in the March 2024 election to continue leading our community as a representative...

Letter: Hazel Hawkins buyer needs ‘skin in the game’

Re: Board still in talks with potential partners, Free Lance, Oct. 6, 2023 Looks like “Bargain hunting now.” Where were these potential partners before the bankruptcy declaration? Imagine that! Before there were none; now three parties are interested: American Advanced Management, Salinas Valley Memorial and...
