Substitutes starting over

Last year, the Davis Joint Unified School District adopted a new salary schedule for substitute teachers, prompted by the need to hire more qualified subs. Indeed, many times during the school year last year, school secretaries were scrambling to fill teacher vacancies, sometimes deploying principals and vice principals to fill in gaps in classrooms. The […]

‘Conversations’ go two ways

I read the recent editorial by Deborah DeAngelo in Sundays Enterprise. I’ve heard about the police shootings, riots, etc. If Dangelo and others want to discuss race, fine then lets discuss it. I offer the following thoughts: * If a Caucasian were to wear a T-shirt displaying “white lives matter”, would the reader be OK with this? […]

Bird lecture was enthralling

Tuleyome would like to take a moment to thank the folks over at Hawks, Honkers and Hoots for one of the best-attended lectures we’ve ever had in our “Nature and You” series.

She’s the only one working on it

Dear Annie: I have been married for more than 25 years to a highly respected, professional man. He has always worked hard, rarely taking time off.

Misstatements about lamb

It is unfortunate that two letter writers portrayed the “new” Superior Farms facility in gross misstatements. Whether someone likes lamb or not, is a personal choice, but those who do not like lamb have never eaten lamb prepared correctly or have never eaten lamb.

Devastated by diagnosis

The Iran nuclear deal does not promote peace

Barack Obama did not start the process which led to the deal he recently signed with Iran. He joined in mid-race. The P5 + 1 powers — the U.S., Russia, China, France, the U.K. plus Germany — began talking with the Iranians in 2003, and as early as 2006 (when George W. Bush was in […]

Maybe she could do it at the reception?

Latino fears on loss of clout may be correct

  Fear and anxiety have been in the air around California’s Latino political leaders in the weeks since the U.S. Supreme Court announced it will hear arguments this fall in a Texas case challenging the 51-year-old legal and political doctrine of one person, one vote. These fears may turn out to be far more correct […]
