Are local Trump loyalists proud?

Editor, Have you seen the pictures? Is this what true Trump Republicans do? Some bearded fool is kicking up his feet on Nancy Pelosi’s desk and is later shown displaying a piece of her mail which he had stolen. I know that Republicans hate her, but this is a crime. Is it cool to commit a crime against someone you […]

Do the right thing, congressman

Editor, Dear Tom McClintock: How dare you call upon Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House, to not begin the impeachment proceedings against President Trump in the name of unity. You, who have yet to acknowledge Joe Biden as the duly elected 46th president of the United States? You, who has allowed the unproven claim of rampant voter fraud to […]

Is America great again?

Editor, A few questions and comments for my Trump-supporting neighbors. Are you proud of the mobs that seditiously attacked our nation’s capitol? Do you support the traitor flag, pro-Nazi and anti-semitic signs and symbols? Why don’t these young, white males have jobs? Are you proud of our president inciting domestic acts of terrorism? Are you proud of our carpetbagger congressman […]

Wells is off his rocker

Editor, Gazette reader Marvin Well’s letters to the editor have grown increasingly unhinged and nonsensical. One letter warned us of a mysterious petition received by his granddaughter to defund the police. Was it from a classmate? Teacher? Principal? I am not aware of a single member of Congress or jurisdiction calling for defunding the police. More recent letters have warned […]

Still supports Trump and election efforts

Editor, I want to start by expressing my gratitude for Price Little and the Mariposa Gazette for letting both of us express our opinions on the November 2020 presidential election. We admittedly have different perspectives on the outcome of the election. I respect and support his point of view. However, I suspect that those negative letters against me were really […]

Hats off to Don Rubens

Editor, There are 40 active cases covid as of yesterday here in Mariposa. To Don Rubens Restaurant, we have a deep appreciation for you abiding by the restaurant closure articles written by the State of California. It is unfortunate for everyone the virus has exploded within our community with no end in sight despite some supervisors suggest overriding the law. […]

Our democracy will hold itself together

Editor, Will our democracy hold? That is the question being asked around the world and right here in America by those who care about such things. Democracies, whether direct or a representative republic like ours, are difficult and therefore fragile. And our democracy has been under attack since Nov. 3. First the votes were attacked when President Trump incomprehensibly declared […]

Thanks for E. Madera coverage

Your newspaper does an outstanding job of reporting local news of interest to the whole mountain community. Thank you to Kellie Flanagan for her insightful articles. Keep up the great work — I look forward to reading your paper […]

The end game

Editor, According to the leader of the Republican Party in Arizona the time has come to “Cross the Rubicon.” When I heard that remark I had to look it up. It is a reference to Julius Caesar who was told not to cross the Rubicon River while he was serving in the military. He did anyway, which led to a […]

The Price is right

Editor, Why do people continue denigrating Price Little? The latest is Linda Sinclair in a recent letter to the editor. These old codgers seem to enjoy picking on Price for some Freudian reason. Does it make them feel superior? This young man with such unique talent is anything but what they say he is. I think I can speak with […]
