America, it’s time to wake up

Are we still striving to become a nation of laws with liberty and justice for all, as well as the land of the free and the home of the brave? Our commitment to these noble goals came into question in 1961 when retiring President Eisenhower warned us of the dangers posed by our military-industrial complex. […]

Making it clear

Twin Pines Cooperative Foundation recently sent a letter to The Enterprise listing a number of out of town people and organizations who had written to the City and the Attorney General about DACHA.

Not easy to dispose of bulbs

There is not an easy and simple way in Davis to dispose of fluorescent light bulbs. Household Hazardous Waste is accepted for free at the Yolo County Central Landfill every Friday and Saturday from 7:30 am to 3:30 pm. — not exactly easy for the average resident. The barrier to more efficient disposal seems to […]

Thank you to the community

The Saylor family is so grateful for everyone’s support. Travis gave himself to this community and, especially the kids involved with football. How to play the game was only part of it; he loved those kids as his own and hopefully taught them that no matter what “keep trying” is a life lesson for all. […]
