Our view: Oakley, Neustadt for Yolo offices

The issue: Experience counts for these two important jobs Yolo County voters will find themselves at a crossroads in June’s election when they’re asked to choose someone to fill the newly created position of clerk-recorder-assessor. If it sounds like a mouthful, that’s nothing compared to the breadth of responsibilities that resulted when the Board of […]

Now she’s starting to wonder …

Dear Annie: I’m starting to wonder about my son-in-law, “Pete.” He married my daughter some 40 years ago when he was fresh out of the Navy. I was concerned that they had no savings and he had no job training. But he was quiet and likable. Through the years, however, people I respect have called […]

We must punish these terrorists

I and every Muslim I know is outraged and sickened by the abduction of more than 200 high school girls in Nigeria by Boko Haram. Their leader threatened to sell these innocent girls in the market. Boko Haram is a terrorist organization, no different from al-Qaida. Our country is the leader of the free world, […]

Task force criticism is unfair

Glen Holstein’s opinion piece last Sunday is an insult to the citizen volunteers and staff of the Davis Downtown Parking Task Force. His animosity directed toward the members of the task force in general, and Robb Davis in particular, is entirely misplaced and not based in fact. He should take his beef up with the […]

Bikes and cars downtown

I have lived in Davis since 1982 and have watched as the city has sprawled in all directions. After reading Glen Holstein’s opinion piece last Sunday, I am horrified at the cavalier attitude of the Davis Parking Task Force to his participation and suggestions, and their outright violation of the Brown Act by excluding him […]

Cheers and Jeers: Finally, The Cannery will be a reality

We offer our cheers and jeers for local newsmakers as we look back over the previous week: CHEERS to the long-awaited groundbreaking for The Cannery, a 547-unit housing development on the 100 acres formerly occupied by the Hunt-Wesson tomato cannery at J Street and Covell Boulevard. It took 10 long years to get to this point, […]

Down, up and down again

Dear Annie: My husband and I have been married for 33 years. His parents disliked me from our first date. I have no idea why. I was only 16. We married two years later, and his parents didn’t come to the wedding and stopped speaking to my husband for the next 23 years. They missed […]

Don’t punish the children

I am writing this letter on behalf of myself, the parents and the children who receive subsidized childcare through the city of Davis and attend In-R-Care day care in Woodland. We have recently been informed that our children will no longer be able to attend In-R-Care due to daily sign-in logs not being completed according to the city […]

Neustadt has K-12 experience

Two candidates are running for Yolo County superintendent of schools. It is interesting that not all counties elect this position and it is also important to note that it is a nonpartisan position. That said, voters should look at the actual experience and education of the candidates. Sam Neustadt is the only candidate with the […]

Munn has a proven track record

It’s not often we get to see directly what a new candidate will do in office before he’s elected. With John Munn, candidate for Davis City Council, we have that opportunity. With that insight, we know he’s the man for the council job. We know because as an elected official for Davis’ school board, he […]

Davis supports restorative justice

I’m writing to share why I support Robb Davis for the Davis City Council. I have known Robb for a little over year as we have worked together to bring restorative justice to both the city of Davis and the county of Yolo. As a national expert in restorative justice, Robb understands its importance as […]

We’re mourning pharmacy’s closure

As Wendy Weitzel reported in her column “Comings & Going” on Sunday, the El Macero Pharmacy closed last Thursday. This closure is a loss to the residents of Davis and to those of South Davis in particular. The pharmacy offered more than prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs, etc. Its offerings included a great selection of high-quality, […]

Please help Yolo nursery

Thank you for your recent publicity regarding the loss of funding to the Yolo Crisis Nursery. The nursery has helped numerous families stay together in times of emergency. As a mom and health care provider, I support the nursery in its own time of financial need, and ask my colleagues and neighbors to join me […]
