Letter: Sign the initiative to preserve San Benito County

The problem with excess housing remains. Unlike Monopoly—where we can slide the pieces back into the box, fold the board game, lid the whole and store the box—we cannot remove large expensive houses and herd the cattle back onto grazing land. We cannot replace...

Letter: Don’t let developers win the game

A person need not be a mind reader to know what is on people’s minds. The overabundance of housing is, and it reminds me of the game of Monopoly.  For example, both occupations use paper money and wood houses. Those house builders want to make...

Letter to the editor: Opportunity of a lifetime

I was thinking a lot about this and right now Hollister and San Benito County have the opportunity of a lifetime in regards to parks, and designating land for park use. I live in the area of Park Hill and recently the city demolished...

Letter to the editor: PG&E acting on natural gas price surge 

PG&E is hearing from customers that energy bills are higher than normal. We understand increases are challenging. We’re taking action and helping customers.  Natural gas prices have risen significantly, about 90% higher than last winter in PG&E’s service area and nationwide. PG&E passes through the...

Letter: San Benito landscape is not a Monopoly board

Get to know “Don’t Dump on San Benito!” Friends and neighbors of San Benito County started a grassroots organization called “Don’t Dump on San Benito” when we learned about the proposed John Smith Road Landfill (JSRL) expansion.  Waste Connections, the landfill operator, is proposing a...

Letter: Some kids more informed than parents

On reading the letter from Randy Logue in the Opinion section of the Feb. 4 Free Lance, the irony of his letter and its position against 12-year-olds being capable of making sound healthcare decisions is remarkable.  The inaccuracies and astoundingly poor reasoning exhibited in the...

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...
