“We set out to do a couple of things: one, expose the discrimination at Davis, and, two, get them to change — and we did that. Even though it’s been a long road, I’m pleased that we finally came to this resolution.”

Lauren Mancuso
one of three female wrestlers who reached a $1.35 million settlement with UC Davis in a Title IX case that took eight years to resolve

“We have all the right tools to build really smart start-up companies in town. It’s a crime we don’t do it more often.”

Anthony Costello

local entrepreneur and co-chair of Davis Roots

“People are motivated to give their time — it’s fun but they also do it because they believe they’re planting the seeds of a more equitable world.”

Skyler Blakeslee

Whole Earth Festival co-director, speaking about the festival’s 450 volunteers

“I love polling places. I like the flag waving. It creates educational moments for our children. But I have a feeling the days of the polling place are numbered.”

Freddie Oakley

Yolo County clerk/recorder

“Over-the-top thorough about all the nitty-gritty aspects of good stewardship.”

Sierra magazine

describing UC Davis, named the nation’s “coolest school”

“We need an invasion of linguine first.”

Geoffrey Schladow, director of the UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center, when asked if eating the invasive clams might be one way to rid Lake Tahoe of them

“When the cost of speech is a shot of blinding, burning pepper spray in the face, speech is not free.”

Michael Risher, staff attorney at the ACLU of Northern California, announcing a lawsuit filed by Occupy UC Davis protesters against UCD

“Seeing you holding that canister, as if you were trying to spray some roaches, or disinfect an outhouse, rather than deal with your fellow human beings in a rational way, is something I will not soon forget.”

Anonymous email to Lt. John Pike

Pike and another officer who used pepper spray, Alexander Lee, are no longer employed by UCD

“He got exactly what he deserves. His reign of terror, his reign of fear over people, it’s over.”
Glenn Oliveira

jury foreman, describing the jury’s support for the death penalty for killer Richard Hirschfield

“I pray to God that one person sees what it does and thinks twice.”

June Stein, whose daughter was one of three people killed by a driver who was texting and under the influence of drugs before hitting a bus head-on

“Oh my God. I hope I’m not the scapegoat for this one. …It was really bad out there.”

Former UC Davis police Lt. John Pike

following the Nov. 18, 2011, pepper-spraying of seated, unarmed protesters on the UCD Quad, according to a report on the incident released in April

 “I can forgive people for what they believe in, but I hope people will see that this kind of thing hurts others. When people go out and do hateful things like that, it really hurts me.”
Ciara Brown
Davis High School student, regarding the discovery of a noose hanging at the DHS football field

“Many people think of us as some daredevils, young barnstormers. … As my mother used to say, ‘Now you quit doin’ them there stunts!’ What I say is, that’s not stunts, that’s actually what I do. This is my work.”

Russ Stocker

local agricultural aviator

“When I first started, I would text my buddy, ‘I feel like I’m in a crater, on the moon right now!’ It’s pretty amazing, the things you can see,”

Loren Skinner

Davis Astronomy Club member, recently introduced to stargazing

“Let’s go to the local voters and make a case for local control of local schools. … The fact that we have our entire Davis education system resting on what a voter in Bakersfield or Newport Beach does (regarding Proposition 30) — that’s crazy.”

Richard Harris

Davis school board trustee

“When I’m (at Lincoln Center) and I see Wynton Marsalis, he knows who I am now — which is a good thing.”

Jon Hatamiya

DHS graduate and trombonist who studies at the Manhattan School of Music in New York City

“It isn’t that there isn’t going to be pain. It doesn’t matter which project you pick, there’s going to pain. Very big pain.”

Elaine Roberts Musser

Water Advisory Committee chairwoman, discussing proposed water rates

“Nothing about this project we’ve done is innovative. (But) this is Davis. This is something for us to do, something innovative, and if someone is going to innovate this type of reform. … I think that we should be the ones to do it.”

David Purkey

Water Advisory Committee member, arguing for an “elegant and innovative” rate structure devised by two fellow committee members

“This is messing with mom’s apple pie. I play mahjong here, I knit here. I joined SCD because I thought I was joining the Senior Center.”

Carole Plack

Senior Citizens of Davis member

“We have a moral obligation to not be in the business of killing dogs and cats.”

Jim Provenza

Yolo County supervisor, supporting changes at the Yolo County Animal Shelter

“I just don’t think a store like this can survive anymore.”

Christine Hildebrand

Alphabet Moon Toys & Treasures owner, commenting on her store’s closure

“It is the best thing, the most Godly thing, the county does all year. No one goes unnamed. No one goes unknown.”

The Rev. Norman Callaway

of St. John’s Church in Woodland, speaking at the memorial service the Yolo County public guardian holds every year for the indigent

“Maybe I can inspire a little girl somewhere to pick up a broom and rule the pitch someday.”

Vanessa Goh

Davis High School graduate and current UCLA student Vanessa Goh, who represented Team USA at the Quidditch Olympics in London

“Sweat pants, hot showers, down comforters, good bread and cheese.”

Sasha Hill

DHS graduate, explaining what she missed while living and working in Peru
