Guest view: Changing the way we talk about miscarriage

If there’s one thing we all have in common, no matter how many differences may separate us afterward, it’s this: we all came into this world in more or less the same way—we were born. In fact, celebrating one’s “birth” day is so common...

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,...

Guest view: County must keep standing up to bullies

We know by now that most adults who’ve refused the Covid-19 vaccine will not be budged, no matter what they’re told by science and common sense. They’ve chosen this as their line in the sand—or, for a more apt metaphor, their hill to die...

Guest view: State’s kids have been used and abused

From the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, the state’s six million public school students have been used as pawns in political power struggles and abused by having their educations stunted. Both mistreatments continue as, finally, in-person classes resume with the new and more virulent “delta”...

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...

Guest view: Helping our children learn through the pandemic

Starting March 13, 2020, the educational world that we knew in the Hollister School District changed forever. Our Superintendent, Diego Ochoa, and our staff at both the district and site levels worked all through the weekend to get food packets and learning materials put...

Guest view: San Benito needs a second high school

By working together, our community has made it possible for San Benito High School to create a world-class learning and working environment for students and staff members. During its more than 125-year history, San Benito High School District has grown along with our community....

Letter to the editor: Answering the mayor’s lies

Ignacio Velazquez’s screed responding to the Notice of Intention to Recall him from the Mayor’s office in Hollister opens with a lie and closes with a lie. Of course, this is to be expected from a mayor who apparently doesn’t know the difference between...
