Letter to the editor: Red flag laws offer gun safety band-aid

The latest episodes of gun violence seem to have tapped into a more concerted public discussion of effective strategy among gun control advocates nationwide. Measures discussed recently range from federally enforced background checks to outright bans on certain types of weapons and accessories.  Another idea...

Guest view: Water conservation is essential

The Western United States is experiencing one of the most extensive and intense droughts on record. January through April were the driest first four months in California’s recorded history, the state’s largest reservoirs are at critically low storage levels, and the state’s snowpack level...

Letter to the editor: Celebrate peace

Guest view: I won’t be bullied by signs, special interests

Special interests are at it again in San Benito County. That said, I want to address the ambiguous signs that showed up throughout the county this past week with my name on them and phrases like Recall, Censure, Unethical and Shameful on them. To be clear,...

Letter to the editor: The political process

As I drive around town, I see an abundance of political signs for the upcoming elections, and recognizing the names it appears that there are several local offices where there are multiple candidates who are qualified, and also some very clear choices in terms...

Letter: Sign the initiative to preserve San Benito County
