Letter: Why isn’t San Benito the Home of the Pinnacles?

Letter: Hollister council bullies Resendiz

It is horrible, immoral, rude and bullying behavior to remove Councilmember Rolan Resendiz (District 2, Westside of Hollister) from his committee seats.  The target of this attack is not Resendiz, but his constituents and those he represents, and all of us who have different opinions...

Letter: Mayor is the one who is misled

Letter: Don’t blame unions for hospital’s dilemma

Water softeners reduce the “hardness” of the water in your household, which can have several benefits for consumers. Less soap and detergents are needed for laundry and cleaning. There is less staining, spotting and scaling on appliances. Clothes last longer and there are energy...

Letter: Difficult to imagine…

Re: Fire on the hill, Free Lance 8/11/23 “Fire on the hill,” headlines partnered with the front page photo of a firefighter pummeling a blaze gripped my attention, as I had just watched a TV news program showing that Lahaina in Hawaii had been destroyed...
