Golf tournament helps kids

Soroptimist International of Greater Davis held its 21st annual Charity Golf Tournament in July. Grace Starkovich, club president and tournament co-chair, and Wanda Winton, president-elect and tournament co-chair, presented Cameron Handley, director of the Multi-Disciplinary Interview Center, with a check for $6,720. The MDIC is one of many nonprofits and charities that benefits from the […]

The gift of information

The announcement that The Enterprise will reduce print publication to three days per week beginning in January is distressing, but understandable in today’s highly competitive news periodical environment. Newspapers and other traditional print and broadcast news media outlets everywhere face tough competition, principally from online interactive social media and bloggers. Young people rely primarily on the […]

Bingo funds put to good use

On behalf of the Yolo Center for Families, we would like to thank the Davis Odd Fellows for choosing our organization to be their charity partner on Nov. 8. A special thank-you goes to the volunteers who ran the bingo program that day. The Second Sunday Bingo raised more than $800 to benefit our Promotora peer […]

Thank you to supporters of ‘SEVEN’

We, the Friends of Empower Yolo, would like to express our sincere appreciation to the Davis community for its support of the production of “SEVEN” at the Veterans’ Memorial Theater on Oct. 18. This play tells the story of seven remarkable women from around the world making a difference despite the towering obstacles in their way. […]

Kids: Get creative with your recycling message!

In 2012, DavisRISE, a school districtwide recycling program co-sponsored by Davis Farm to School and the Davis Joint Unified School District, took waste diversion to another level by instituting a food scrap collection program at all eight elementary schools in Davis. The ALL (All Lunch Leftovers) Compost Program is supported by the city of Davis and […]

Still blames her for everything

Dear Annie: My son, “Robert,” is 50 years old. He has no contact with his older sister or me. When Robert was 13, my husband and I divorced. His father was a troubled person. He was a typical old-fashioned European father who believed in physical punishment, and used a belt when disciplining his son. I […]

Nishi provides needed housing

Most Davis residents understand that our community needs more student housing. The scarcity of housing dedicated for students is harming the quality of life in many Davis neighborhoods while leaving too many students with no other option than to crowd into mini-dorms or commute from outlying cities. That’s why I was disappointed to read an […]

I’m opposed to a later start

I don’t think the Davis school district needs to make school start later. While I agree that a good night’s sleep is a good thing, I think we are overlooking some common-sense things that can be done in order for teenagers to get more sleep. The first is they can go to sleep earlier. It […]

Room for bike improvements

Bob Dunning wrote on Nov. 12: “… check out the south side of East Eighth Street between J Street and Hunt Way and you’ll find a bike lane surrounded with cars on both sides … talk about a suicide squeeze, this is easily the most dangerous spot in town for our two-wheeled friends, and the city so […]

Focus on wining, not whining

On “Wining with Papa Francisco” (10/14/15) A recent Wineaux column published in The Enterprise bottled a rather curious Meritage: a blend of commentaries on wines and personal opinions on the behaviors and beliefs of Jorge Mario Bergoglio and his Church. The columnist is entitled to divulge her opinions to the public, but some misconceptions have to be pointed out. Alas! Bergoglio […]

Big savings on Bike/Walk to School Day

Push to use active transportation paid off By Sanne Fettinger Davis schools held another successful National Bike/Walk to School Day on Oct. 7. Thanks go to the many students, parents, school representatives, teachers, City Council members, a school board member and community members who are interested in improving the health of our students for the […]

They don’t like the grandkids

Dear Annie: My in-laws have always caused problems, but things have escalated since my husband and I had children. They live 30 minutes away, but they refuse to visit. When our second child was born, they didn’t come to my baby shower or to the hospital. When they finally visited, they didn’t even look at […]

We’re short on real democracy

I am writing this with reference to the article in The Davis Enterprise on Sunday, Nov. 8, regarding trends in voting patterns in the United States. Do we have a real democracy? It cannot be, considering the number of people among all eligible voters who really care to vote for the most important election. The […]
