Letter to the editor: Bring back driver’s education

I don’t know if Hollister is worse or better than other parts of the country, but one thing is for sure, we need serious improvement. The sheer volume of people failing to stop at stop signs, not slowing down for pedestrians, and in general...

Letter to the editor: The cost of safety

Re: Kids on parade Still it gives me pause to worry and remember that children died in Highland Park at an Independence Day parade and in Uvalde in their own classroom. I’m sure this was in the mind of every parent on that July 4...

Letter to the editor: Build Hollister ‘in’

Re: Officials certify initiative petition, Free Lance 6/17/22 Debate happens when both sides are convinced they have learned from the past. The signature gatherers are deeply motivated by the rapid housing growth impacting our roads, traffic and water. The oppositional side is concerned about needed...

Letters to the editor: Too easy to vote?

Stop using tax funds for transit Highway improvements would not be so delayed if the unelected “directors” at the transit agencies stopped diverting highway trust funds and gas tax revenues to bankrupt-from-conception public sector transit boondoggles.  Why don’t we follow state and federal government experts, who...

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: 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...
