DACHA critique is widespread

Due to the illegal acts of the Davis Area Cooperative Housing Association and the millions in public funds wasted on the DACHA debacle, the shameful events have attracted national scrutiny from cooperatives. Letters were sent to the City Council and the California attorney general protesting the dissolution and the wrongful role of DACHA and city […]

No room for political favoritism

In recent weeks, several letters have been published in The Davis Enterprise from judges of the Yolo Superior Court in support of Judge Dan Maguire’s candidacy for retention in the June 5 election. Some of those judges have hosted campaign events and used other means to publicly endorse his candidacy. While the California Judicial Code […]

I’ll say it simply: I like Wolk

Some public servants are so ideally suited, straightforward messages of support are sufficient to make the point. Simply put, I like Dan Wolk and will be voting for him for City Council. Heidy Kellison Davis

Price gas on multi-tier system

Reducing our gasoline usage is perhaps our most important priority. We need to do it for reasons of security (not being dependent on hostile foreign nations), the environment (in terms of pollution and global warming) and economics. If we reduce our usage, the prices will fall. Here is how we can do it: We need […]

Tell us the good news, too

Given some of the events of the past academic year, I hope The Enterprise will make and comply with a policy of accurate reporting about activities related to UC Davis’ Picnic Day. Frankly, I am tired of reading about students who drink or have an accident. That’s not news. We have a campus in our […]

It’d be a stark choice, indeed

With regard to the op-ed article by Lyra Halprin on a woman’s right to choose and the accompanying archived photograph, I feel that if the mothers in that photo were asked to take a marker pen and choose which of those beautiful children’s smiling faces they would eliminate from that photo, then they would have […]

Why attention on Goodwill?

Regarding Sunday’s story about the Goodwill Industries’ donation site in Davis: Why is Supervisor Don Saylor asking the Board of Supervisors revisit its endorsement of Goodwill’s tax-exempt bonds, a small portion of which is going toward the donation site? As far as I can ascertain, the board has no jurisdiction over Goodwill Industries’ use permit […]

Davis has missing revenue from sales

From U.S. Census Bureau reports, in 2007 the average sales per capita in California were $12,700. In Folsom, a city about the same population as Davis, that figure was $26,474. Woodland’s sales per capita were $11,208. Dixon’s were $21,742. In Davis, the only city owning a large population of captive UCD customers, our sales per […]

Remember the whistleblowers

Do you remember Bradley Manning — the solider who released United Nations classified military information to WikiLeaks? He was arrested and has been imprisoned for two years without trial. This detention both punishes Manning and sends a message to all in the military who would expose the military to criticism to shut up! The message to […]

Wolk’s the only one I trust

Is anyone watching the store? Amid the preoccupation with pepper-spraying on campus (which I deplored), our city “leaders” have been up to no good. Our City Council has refused to tackle Crown Castle, a private, for-profit corporation that is trying to invade our neighborhoods by erecting potentially dangerous cell towers, under the guise of being […]

The theater students at Davis High School are making a final push to raise the money needed to support their once-in-a-lifetime participation in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland. To see just how talented these young people are, can I recommend their latest offering, “A Tribute to Tony Fields,” which will take place at 7 […]
