Board did the right thing

The following is an open letter to members of the Davis Board of Education: As a former Davis Joint Unified School District teacher and school psychologist, as well as the parent of two children who attended Davis schools from kindergarten through high school, I would like to thank the four board members who voted to […]

For love of Davis, and Earth

By Susana Rainier Everet We are living in a time where we are at peak oil, peak water and peak resource depletion; peak temperatures; peak species extinction; and peak pollution of land, water, atmosphere and ocean. And all of this is happening right before our eyes. Nothing less than a transformational change in the way […]

Davis could be carbon-neutral by 2035; community energy choice is key

By Mark Braly By aggressively pursuing renewable energy — mainly solar and wind — and reducing energy use through energy-efficiency improvements to existing buildings, Davis could eliminate its direct carbon footprint by 2035. This is 15 years earlier than the carbon neutrality goal established by the city’s Climate Action and Adaptation Plan. This is one of the […]

Sports briefs: Blue Devil summer squad is getting better

Skipper Dan Ariola said a recent weekend trip to the Buchanan Elite Tournament was good for his Davis High summer baseball team no matter what the outcome of the games. On Thursday, he was proven right … Facing the same Sac City Easton Cats squad that had beaten the locals, 10-2, just two weeks ago, the […]

Kudos to Bruce Gallaudet!

I can hardly bear to read Bruce Gallaudet’s column because it often brings tears to my eyes. He writes every article as if the game was the most important game of the week — and, of course, it was for the young players and their parents. Even a loss is a good story, and every player […]

We both agree on auto safety

I want to echo the sentiments of your story on auto safety advocate Rosemary Shahan (“Safety Advocate Takes on Newest Challenge,” June 19). Once again showing the diversity of our town, Davis not only has as a citizen a pre-eminent national consumer auto advocate, but also myself, the legislative advocate for the auto manufacturers. It […]

DHS students did their part

Remembering cooler temperatures in May, I want to celebrate my Davis High School Chemistry in the Community students’ bike riding for the month of May as part of May is Bike Month. I had 35 students participate, logging 2,516.4 miles and preventing the emission of 1,509.2 pounds of CO2 from entering the atmosphere (calculations made […]

Don’t miss local Shakespeare

My daughter and I went to see the Davis Shakespeare Ensemble’s production of “Twelfth Night” last weekend. It was, simply put, superb! We both remarked that it was as good as anything that we’ve seen at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. I would urge others to see it if they have the opportunity. We can’t wait […]

Protect land on Davis periphery

Jean Jackman (“At the Pond,” June 28) updated us on the open space tax, Measure O, which she promoted and the Davis voters passed 15 years ago. The city promised the Measure O tax would protect a ring of open space surrounding Davis. Jackman’s update revealed a lack of transparency on use of the fund […]

Honor and respect end-of-life choices

By The Rev. Sergio Camacho As a minister, I am called upon to counsel and pray with terminally ill people as they prepare for the end of their lives. Hearing their dying wishes is one of the most challenging and most meaningful parts of my call to serve God. At a very deep level, we […]

Opposition to bill is inhumane

By Ginny Johnson I am writing in response to your June 25 article on SB 128, the aid-in-dying bill, hereafter “the bill.” I’m perplexed as to why the Association of Oncologists thinks the bill “runs contrary to the physicians’ oath to do no harm.” Many doctors disagree. As Paul Amster, an M.D. and a pain […]

Why this flag should not fly

Defenders of the Confederate flag argue that it is about “our heritage.” But so are nooses, cross burnings, lynchings, white robes and hoods. They also advance that the flag commemorates those who gave their lives defending the Confederacy. In actual fact, the Confederacy was the aggressor and posed a greater threat to the United States than […]

Provenza steps up, again and again

On Wednesday June 10, an article in The Enterprise covered the funding challenges facing social welfare programs in Yolo County. These critically necessary services often fall through the cracks in traditional federal and state government budgets. This time it was about the Yolo County Children’s Alliance and resource centers it operates in West Sacramento and […]
