Blaming the wrong person

Dear Annie: Two months ago, I discovered that my husband had been texting and calling my oldest son’s girlfriend. My son told me about it after his girlfriend asked him, “What’s wrong with your father?” She said it began last June, but claimed it was only one phone call and a few texts. It made […]

Was he fibbing all along?

Dear Annie: I am desperate for advice about my husband’s lies. We have been together for 27 years. From the beginning, he knew that complete honesty is very important to me. I told him about my past relationships, and he told me about his. In all of our time together, he has maintained the same […]

Back on the job hunt again

Sometimes when I rerun an old column stuff happens. This summer I reran a 2007 story about a UC Davis graduate, Kate Eby, who was struggling to find her first job. She was looking hard and wondered why her shiny new education didn’t do the trick. I sensed — and I said so in the […]

Besides SB 967, we need Debra’s Rules of Sexual Order

Finally, progress in rape prevention! On Sept. 28, Governor Jerry Brown signed Senate Bill 967, geared toward college students, requiring that “affirmative consent” standards be enacted on every campus, including comprehensive prevention and outreach programs that address sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking. Why it’s not aimed at women of all ages, I’m […]

Suffering and alone

Dear Annie: I am one of 12 siblings, but the only one with multiple sclerosis. For two years, I have been without work, so I sit here daily, hoping for a visit. I know my siblings are busy, because I see photographs on social media of their many travels and moments I can only imagine […]

A common-sense local voice

Re: “Taking the Reins on Paso Fino,” Oct. 8 The Davis Enterprise editorial endorsing a compromise for the Paso Fino development in Wildhorse injected good common sense into this long-running controversy. The editorial undoubtedly helped influence the Planning Commission to vote Wednesday night to send the developer back to the drawing board to better address community […]

Why Dems will have a lock on California

It was lawbreaking, both proven and alleged, that ended the Democrats’ supermajority in the state Senate. Republicans and their efforts had nothing to do with it. Until state Sens. Roderick Wright of Los Angeles, Ron Calderon of Montebello and Leland Yee of San Francisco encountered serious legal problems, Democrats had more than two-thirds of the seats […]

Swim coaches do a great job

Re: Mark Braly’s column “Masters Coach Gets Deserved Award” I’d like to correct a misunderstanding in Mark Braly’s Oct. 7 column, in which he wrote that I “complained that coach Stu had thrown (me) out of 7:15 p.m. DAM practice …” Actually, Stu just told me there was no lane available that evening. I usually do […]

Davis kids keep getting better

I work for the Davis public schools, mostly at Davis High, as a substitute teacher, yard supervisor and detention supervisor. So I am both a substitute teacher and I work in discipline. I see your children at their worst, and at their worst they are still incredibly good. The parents of Davis are doing a […]

Register, and then vote!

The People’s Climate March on Sept. 21 in New York City, intended to impress world leaders meeting at the United Nations of the need for immediate action on global warming, drew as many as an estimated 400,000 people from around the country and as far away as East Timor. The attendees of the march deserve […]

Great progress on public health

On Tuesday evening there was a wonderful ceremony held in the Davis Community Chambers: Chancellor Linda Katehi and her staff at UC Davis were honored for their exceptional work in implementing a University of California policy making this campus a tobacco- and smoke-free community. It was appropriate that the town that once had the strictest smoking ordinances […]

Rear reflectors are vital

As a 55-year resident of Davis, I’ve become quite sensitive to nighttime bicycle safety. Not only are too many bikers not using front and rear lights, but a particularly serious issue is biking on residential streets. While many secondary streets don’t have bike lanes, they also suffer from poor lighting due to tree canopy. A […]
