Letters to the Editor

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 […]

Monticello a delicious find

How often do you taste food alive with flavor? On a recent Tuesday, my neighbor and I went to lunch. There was no parking in downtown Davis so we drove north to Osaka Sushi next to the Davis Food Co-op. Osaka was gone and now there is Monticello Seasonal Cuisine. It looked expensive but we […]

Old-fashioned service with a smile

We would like to fete Carol at Fleet Feet for her amazing patience in helping us to select comfortable shoes for our uncomfortable feet! Quite a feat indeed, especially in these times of self-service shopping found at most other shoe stores. Fleet Feet offers “old fashioned” service with kind souls and a smile. How lucky we […]

Apple, invest in workplaces

I have never heard such a long bout of silence from the young liberal audience of Bill Maher, as when Mike Daisey spoke for seven minutes. They were in shock by what he said about Apple, as was I. Everyone knows about sweat shops and bad working conditions in other countries, but it is the […]

Another ruling for the rich

The Supreme Court has a history of handing down anti-democratic and oppressive rulings that favor the wealthy to the expense of everyone else. It certainly was clear who won and who lost with Citizens United. Now, the Supreme Court hands the rest of us an apparent victory by upholding President Obama’s health care plan. Ironic […]
