Sanders will protect our planet

As the electioneering heats up for the 2016 presidential race, it is time to ask of the two major Democratic candidates, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, “Which one really cares the most about the state of the Earth?” Yes, there are many vital issues facing all of us, but there is only one planet for […]

Solar billing education important

Tanya Perez was shocked by the true-up charges assessed by PG&E for electrical use subsequent to having solar panels installed on her roof. It is unfortunate that this happened but I suspect she may not have been properly informed as to PG&E’s billing process. I recently had solar installed and was told by my solar […]

Don’t miss troupe’s visit

Lucky us! The San Francisco Mime Troupe is coming to Davis with its new show, “Freedomland.” This amazing group does not do silent pantomime and, as the members explain on their website, they mean “mime” in the ancient sense: to mimic.

Wood chips are a great solution

So far I have seen little mention of the use of wood chips as a replacement save for one opinion: that when rains come, the chips will wash into the gutter.

Lines blur further between citizens, non-citizens

Almost no one seemed to notice earlier this summer, when California’s new budget took effect, that yet another distinction between citizens and non-citizens was breached. Voting now is about the only area left with a clear line between legal immigrants and citizens. Even for the undocumented, there are few privileges or rights they can’t now […]

Froma Harrop: Sticking up for Coke, sort of

Champions of righteous eating have been saying terrible things of late about Coke. They’re now focusing their wrath on a corporate campaign to place Coca-Cola in the context of a healthy diet. A New York Times editorial accuses Coke and other beverage-makers of forming “innocent-sounding front groups to spread the message that sugary sodas have […]
