Card of Thanks

I just want to thank the awesome ER and imaging staff at John C. Fremont, especially Dr. Maxwell, Patty, Doug and Jen. They were very caring and treated my condition quickly and provided the relief I so desperately needed. They were able to run the necessary tests with their high tech equipment and as a result, determined that additional care […]

McClintock attacked unfairly

Editor, Your recent interview with Congressman Tom McClintock brought a response from Kasi Faulkins sneering at his slogan, “Freedom Works” as some sort of partisan battle cry and accusing him of rank partisanship. Those of us who attended his town halls last year saw with our own eyes the shouting, screaming, insulting and vulgar behavior of radicals on the left […]

Communication key in fires

Editor, After watching the events unfold during the Camp and Woolsey fires, I’m sure that I’m not the only person who thinks Mariposa dodged a bullet. Fires in Mariposa County the last couple years have been breathtakingly dangerous. Kudos and thanks to all of our firefighters and first responders. In Southern California, I belonged to a group called ETI (Equestrian […]

Writer wrong about McClintock

Editor, This is in response to Ben Leet’s criticism of Congressman McClintock. Ben Leet needs to take a closer look at what is driving our debt. Although Democrats predicted the tax cuts would widen the deficit, we now know that in fiscal year 2018, we took in more revenues than the prior year. That’s called economic growth, and the Republican […]

Birthday milestone

Editor, Mariposa’s oldest resident is about to have her 106th birthday! Helen Esther Saulman was born in Indiana on Dec. 30, 1912. She was widowed in the early 1930s and married Elbert Saulman in 1938. They moved to California in the late 1940s and raised their four children. Three more children soon arrived and the Saulmans moved to Mariposa in […]

Cox case exemplifies corruption

Editor, Following the Mariposa Gazette’s crystal clear review of the Cox case, it becomes more apparent that the remaining issues discussed during Judge Dana Walton’s hearing on Nov. 27 are a result of gross mismanagement by a few people on the county’s payroll whose actions over a two-year period should be reviewed in a subsequent court allowing for a jury […]

The true meaning of social justice

Editor, Our daughter works for a small, private university in Los Angeles. She heads a department and hires work/ study students to assist her in running that department. She is a serious and responsible department head and, yet, establishes a friendly and caring relationship with her employees. Her employees respect her and affectionately mirror the same concern for her. Many […]
