Letter: 12-year-olds in control?

I saw on an internet news post that California was considering allowing 12-year-olds to take the Covid vaccine without their parents’ permission. I thought, even in California this couldn’t possibly be true, then I saw it in the paper and spoke to several people...

Letter: Remember the lessons of the pandemic

Re: California & Dan Walters 1/21 & 1/28/ 22 It seems that Dan Walters answers his own question. The voters have spoken. I think that is what democracy is about! Thinking that the voters may not want undocumented workers to benefit from free healthcare, this writer...

Letter: Local Democrats create youth position

The San Benito County Democratic Central Committee (which represents registered Democrats throughout the county) has created a position for a youth  member—someone between the ages of 16 and 25.  This step has been taken because young people have an interest in the direction and future of...

Letter: Stay joyful this holiday season

During this holiday season I have observed that many people have allowed the whole Covid virus, and mostly the response to the virus, to steal their joy. In whatever form you choose to celebrate the holiday season you most certainly have the right to...

Letter: Support peace in recognition of veterans

The photo (from the Nov. 19 edition of the Hollister Free Lance) of the hug given to Vietnam veteran Anthony Gutierrez on Veteran’s Day celebration on Nov.11 visibly conveyed a gesture of deep gratitude. We do not want to forget veterans but why do...

Letter: Seeking morality in school name change

It is sometimes said that change is necessary and beneficial. This past Thursday, San Benito High school sent out its weekly electronic newsletter and proudly stated that the board had voted unanimously to proceed with the idea of changing the name from San Benito...

Letter to the editor: Faith and pregnancy

Re: 10-8-21 Keeping dialogue open on pregnancy, infant loss (Hollister Free Lance, Oct. 8) A wanted pregnancy ending prematurely called a “miscarriage” causes a great deal of sadness. So much so that when a pregnancy is ended purposefully it causes anger and censure. This piece...
