Please meet our kids’ needs

I am writing to express my dissatisfaction with the Davis school board’s vote on June 18 not to renew Deanne Quinn’s contract. Quinn has been an employee of the school district for two decades and a widely respected administrator of the AIM/GATE program in Davis. I see this as another step in the board’s unwise […]

UCD honors one of its finest

The UC Davis Medal is the highest accolade our campus may bestow upon an individual, and it gives me great pride to welcome one of our own alumni, Delaine Eastin, into the prestigious group of people who have received this award. This medal has recognized a great variety of accomplishments, from the artistic endeavors of UCD […]

Don’t be fooled

Pacific Gas and Electric is engaged in a multimillion dollar public relations campaign to convince us that community safety matters to them. Nightly television ads show appealing images of friendly, responsible employees who “live and work” in our local communities, affirming the company’s commitment to public safety. A very persuasive corporate image. Recently, I had […]

Thanks to greenbelt angels

Many thanks to the kind folks who stopped on the bike path Tuesday, June 16, near Arroyo Park to offer assistance after my son crashed his bike. In particular, Paola and Scott were guardian angels. Both were out for a run but put their schedules on hold to help get us and our bikes home. […]

Support Snow Mountain

Recently, the Davis Enterprise ran an Op-Ed (“Protecting our water at Berryessa Snow Mountain,” June, 7) by local walnut farmer Craig McNamara. As a vintner, my livelihood also depends on land and water. Drought or not, water is a finite resource and protecting our watersheds is extremely important. I also support the economic opportunities this […]

Garden tour was a hit

We are so grateful to the Davis community for supporting the 24th Annual Pence Gallery Garden Tour on May 3rd. This great educational event focused on ten gardens in the West Davis area, especially with an emphasis on water conservation. Home owners Neelima R. Sinha, Emily Harris, Catherine & Paul Drobny, Evelyn Healy & Paul […]

Thanks from the Tour

Tour de Cluck is a very special and unique fundraiser that occurs in Davis once a year. This year was an astoundingly successful 6th Tour, with a palooza of families, volunteers and support from the community. Hands down, this event could not occur without you. This educational fundraiser is to support a cause that lies […]

Cook’s Showcase a great success

The event was festive and enjoyed by all who came. Thank you to the Davis Odd Fellows and Dody Black for sponsoring the event […]

America loves guns!

The shooting at an AME church in South Carolina is only the most recent news involving gun violence in the USA.  How many innocent people have to die before we all realize that our liberal gun laws are killing us? Every day we hear about someone being killed with a gun all over America and […]

Brewed up a great party

On May 30., Citizens Who Care, in collaboration with Sudwerk Brewing Co., hosted its eleventh annual beer fest, now known as the Davis Beer and Cider Festival. We wish to express our heartfelt appreciation to our patrons, volunteers and sponsors for creating another successful event! For 35 years, CWC has provided support and volunteer respite […]

Cemetery creating a peaceful place despite drought

By Kristi Dvorak The staff and board of trustees of the Davis Cemetery and Arboretum are dedicated to providing a peaceful place for contemplation, nature, art and the community’s history. A few friends of the cemetery have expressed concern over recent water restrictions and the preservation of our grounds. We are committed to finding a […]

Support SB 277

Thank you for your article highlighting the progress of SB 277. I wish more media outlets would highlight the parents who support this bill. We have formed a grassroots organization called www.vaccinatecalifornia.org. When the measles outbreak began earlier this year, my baby was too young to be vaccinated. If we allow herd immunity levels to […]

Grad Night 2015

It takes a village to raise a child and now I know it also takes a small army to put on Grad Night. This was the first year I participated in Grad Night and I was amazed at the legion of volunteers from throughout our community who did so much to make it such an […]

AIM program review

It is the ongoing duty of the Board of Education to consider up-dated, pertinent information regarding educational programs and to evaluate their effectiveness for students; therefore I support the Board of Education’s review of the AIM program. We know that the former GATE program has been expanded over the years, then modified in several ways […]
