Letter: Inaction on transportation problems is deadly

Whenever I read about another fatal crossover collision I remember giving the eulogy for Morgan Hill’s Janet Graham at her church. The San Benito County Health Nurse was killed in one of these on Hwy. 25 before COG “leaders” decided to install center dividers.  I...

Letter to the editor: City Council scrooges easily forget

Re: Council questions ARPA priorities.  12/10/21 How easily we forget! How easily we miss opportunities! I am severely saddened over our hard working city employees who continue to work hard with a noble disregard of how they are treated. No one should be treated as...

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

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: Vaccines become more crucial as variant spreads

What is the “Delta variant" you have been hearing so much about in the news? All living organisms have the capacity to mutate for survival and some more than others. Mutation is one of the key biologic mechanisms used by microorganisms for their survival.  Sars-CoV-2...

Letter: More questions on homeless camp proposal

After re-reading several times, “Supervisors Reject Flynn Road Camp,” (July 30) questions still remain. One big question haunting me is, how can supervisors trivialize a thorough report by a sterling employee?  Another is, how can a business owner with two employees derail a program destined...
