Thanks for supporting farmers

On June 24, Slow Food Davis/UC Davis collaborated with the Community Alliance for Family Farmers and Monticello Seasonal Cuisine to host “Glide Into Summer” at Glide Ranch. This fundraiser with amazing food and music raised money to send nine local Community Supported Agriculture farmers to the upcoming International CSA Conference, which is a pre-conference to […]

Why no academic incentives?

Among the “key components” for a successful athletic director listed by the advisory committee was “maintaining academic integrity” and “embracing the Aggie Way.” Chancellor Linda Katehi describes the newly selected director, Terry Tumey, as “the perfect person to take UC Davis athletics forward.” In his previous position, Tumey won conference honors for “highest academic achievement and community […]

Be a good neighbor at concerts

By Doyle Burnett For those of us who attended Saturday evening’s Lyle Lovett concert at the Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts, we know that we experienced something very special. Lyle and his bandmates worked together flawlessly throughout the 2 1/2-hour performance to captivate the packed house of concertgoers. But, my comments are not so […]

Thanks for campaign support

As I prepare to step down from the council this Tuesday evening and to take a much needed break, I want to give my heartfelt thanks to everyone who has helped during this last campaign and also to everyone who has helped in previous campaigns. So many people have worked and supported this seat for […]

My statements are accurate

Recent letter writer Susanna Mould seems to resort to personal attacks while being unable to make reasonable arguments and attempting to turn the truth on its head. Please read the article “Pink slips hang in balance as Measure C deadline looms,” published in The Davis Enterprise on March 2, right before the election. It reads: […]

Hooray for park workers!

I work for the city of Davis Rainbow Summer Camps, at Shade Arbor at Rainbow City in Community Park. On Thursday, my fellow leaders and I arrived at the park to see all hands on deck. The Parks Department was all over Community Park cleaning  up from the Fourth of July celebration. There was trash […]

Tuition paid for many undergrads

Tom Elias (“Whose UC is it going to be?”) correctly noted rising tuition is the result of state disinvestment. State funding for UC is the same as 15 years ago, when there were 75,000 fewer students. He propagated a myth, however, when he wrote that UC caters to the wealthy. In fact, half of our […]

Watch out for animal abuse

I was driving east on Russell Boulevard on Tuesday morning and could hardly believe what I saw! A bicyclist was going as fast as he could, west on Russell, with a small white poodle/terrier mix dog on a leash barely able to keep up. If it was a place that I could have stopped, I […]

Swimmer, coach are true Olympians

I was delighted to read your coverage of UC Davis alumnus Scott Weltz and his amazing win in the 200 men’s breast stroke, placing him among the rarefied ranks of the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team. Missing from the story, however, is the extraordinary subplot involving the coach that helped Weltz achieve this goal. For 15 […]

Music, fireworks: Well done!

I just left the Fourth of July celebration at Community Park. I never thought the city could do anything to top the fireworks but I was wrong. It was surpassed when the first of the fireworks exploded just as Dave Alvin was ending his song, “Fourth of July.” Well done, city of Davis. Well done, […]

Stirring reminder of freedom

A great big thank you to the sponsors of the 2012 Davis July 4 fireworks and to the intrepid guitar/vocalists somewhere over by the off-leash dog area who started a beautiful unplugged rendition of the national anthem as the fireworks began. The crowd joined in to sing our national anthem, reminding us all how very […]

Children victimized in court

Congratulations to Judge Stephen Mock for sentencing Jason Sigur to life in prison for grooming, then raping a 14-year-old girl in her El Dorado Hills home. These are exactly the types of criminals who should be sitting in prison for a lifetime. As taxpayers, we want them there, and are glad to pay taxes toward […]

Student trip to S. Korea enriching

I recently returned from a student exchange between Davis and Sangju, South Korea, organized by the Davis Cultural Exchange Club and the Friends of Sangju Committee. For 10 days, we nine students experienced the culture and lifestyle of South Korea first-hand, from pottery classes to sitting in on their (14-plus-hour) school day. Every day was […]
