Schools need a credit recovery path

The Davis school district’s pending strategic plan process holds lots of promise. However, I fear that some critical issues will be ignored as we wait for the process to unfold. The school district needs to address high school credit recovery now. Between an unreliable summer school with inadequate course offerings and the 10-unit rule, a […]

Bittersweet, nostalgic, honest

I loved J. Ann Moylan’s column about her kids going off to college. It was bittersweet, nostalgic and honest. Great timing as many kids start college! Kathy Glatter Davis

Myths about our fair town

Especially this time of year, there are many students and others who believe a few myths about our fair town. * Everyone loves bicyclists! (Actually, many of us do love bicycling, but can’t believe a fast rider would split between pedestrians on a shared path.) * You never forget how to ride a bike! (Ah, […]

Church gets kudos for sale

We’d like to thank the Pole Line Road Baptist Church for the annual community yard sale it hosted on Saturday, Sept. 28. Like anyone who wished to sell, we reserved a space. The church provided a fantastic site and with all its publicity and advertising, the sale attracted lots of customers. As soon as we […]

We all learned about Constitution

“We the People of Davis,” a group of Davis residents interested in promoting the understanding of American history and the Constitution, recently completed the launch of Davis’ first celebration of Constitution Week. Constitution events included a Facts Contest on the Constitution held at Picnic in the Park and the Davis Farmers Market. They also included […]

In addition to the organizations identified in the article, we want to thank the following individuals and their companies.

Davis Childspree a big success

The Davis Salvation Army Committee would like to thank the 70 volunteers who donated their time to our annual Childspree. The volunteers chaperoned 70 Davis schoolchildren as they shopped for back-to-school clothes at JCPenney on Saturday, Aug. 17. JCPenney in Woodland opened its doors at 7:30 a.m. for the children. We would like to thank […]

Trick-or-treat in our neighborhoods

Halloween Day is fast approaching. This letter is a plea to the merchants of Davis to please step back (stop giving out treats) and let the children return to their own and nearby neighborhoods for trick-or-treating. Last year, The Enterprise reported that “thousand of pounds of candy” were handed out. I’m sure my household was […]

What do we do with extra trash?

On Sunday, in his letter to the editor, Bill Wagman asked, among other questions, what would be done with his old trash can if he traded for a smaller one. An editor’s note referred us for answers to a story by Tom Sakash published Oct. 1. That story doesn’t tell us what will happen to […]

Confessions of a chronic downtown re-parker

By Bill P. I enjoyed reading the article regarding the Downtown Parking Task Force on Thursday, Oct. 3. After years of denial, I am now ready to admit, I am a Chronic Downtown Employee Re-Parker. It started when I moved into my office in the heart of downtown in 2001. For several years, I parked […]

Germany votes for Merkel at home, austerity abroad

The issue: Election ratifies chancellor’s status as the most influential politician in Europe Even though the immediate postwar Europe is a fading memory, Germans still opt for stability and familiarity when they head to the polls. They did so again last month, by giving Chancellor Angela Merkel, whose personal style is caution verging on monotony, […]

Now they’re in the line of fire

Dear Annie: When our daughter was a child, she had emotional issues and extensive anger management problems. With tremendous concern and love, we got her professional support and therapy, and ultimately, our daughter learned the skills to control herself. What we did not do was tell extended family members of these private problems. We had […]

Whoops! Wider canal needed

There was an error in my Friday column substituting for Bob Dunning. The width of the canal should have been 35 feet and not 5 feet. Such a narrow waterway would not admit Dave Rosenberg’s yacht, Judge Not. Dave Allen Davis

ACA targets kids’ dental care

Everyone won as a result of the vote regarding fluoridation of the water at the City Council meeting last Tuesday. Those who opposed it, either because of the fluoride inclusion or because of the cost, won. Those who favored the fluoridation can point to an alternative that could be much more effective, if it works […]
