Letter: Why the USA is so divided

I was intrigued by a story I came across regarding a recent poll from UGov, and nearly 40% of all Americans are in favor of seceding from the union. What was even more interesting is that it was pretty even along party lines.  Southern Republicans,...

Letter to the editor: Outrage at vaccine mandate

Open letter to Gavilan College Board of Trustees: I am outraged and appalled to learn that your Board is actively considering imposing a Covid-19 vaccine requirement on all Gavilan College students. I am especially outraged that you would extend this requirement to teenage children attending...

Letter to the editor: Demand in-person meetings now

This past Thursday, I had the privilege of attending the turning point USA informational meeting held in Hollister. It was a great event with some very eye opening material presented, but the greatest thing about it was that there was a large in-person crowd....

Letter: Money talks when it comes to highway nodes

If anyone thinks George Washington’s lips on a dollar bill don’t move, they have another thought coming, because this is how money talks. Money talks and talks big. Not long ago, before the pandemic, we had a local election. One of the issues was related...

Letter to the editor: Wisdom without intelligence

In one of my previous letters, I mentioned that tolerance does not equal acceptance. I would also submit itelligence does not always equal wisdom.  As our elected and appointed officials continue to make policy regarding the pandemic and an attempt to get past it, they...
