Which laws to ignore, Marshall?

Editor, We have a lot of laws and ordinances in our country, some of which seem really bothersome, but for the most part, they seem to make sense, and make our lives safer and a bit more predictable. Some people choose to ignore the laws simply because they don’t believe they apply to them. I guess Marshall Long, an elected […]

Trash talk appreciated

Editor, For sure many people appreciate Christina Manuel’s article “Trash talk” and also appreciate Jim and Elizabeth Hillenbrand and other neighbors who volunteer and express concern with garbage along our roads and highways. Yes, trash bothers most of us, residents and visitors alike. And yes, Caltrans is responsible for some clean up. However, they are needed for critical maintenance and […]

McClintock supports death

Editor, Two million more Covid-19 deaths, all seniors, is what Congressman Tom McClintock proposes in his Dec. 12 article in the Gazette. He advocates an irresponsible “freedom” to infect and neglect the consequences. He states the survival rate for elder adults, 70 and older, is 94.6 percent. Therefore, 5.4 percent die; with a population of 36 million who are 70 […]

Dangerous precedent being set

Editor, No amount of scientific evidence will ever get rid of an anecdote; as Jonathan Swift wrote, a lie can travel halfway around the world while truth is still putting on its shoes. It appears that we have in our county a number of misguided individuals, even elected officials, who feel they have either a constitutional right to infect others […]

McClintock needs to go

Editor, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed ….” In the United […]

Don’t be Covid Charlie

Editor, “I remember when we was both out on the streets talking revolution and singing the blues nowadays it’s letters to the editor and cheating on our taxes is the best that we can do.” Steve Earle—Amerika 6.0 I’m a long distance commuter. I work two weeks a month on a tug in Los Angeles harbor, and then I get […]

Digest these facts

Editor, Gazette subscribers, please read the following carefully and digest these facts: 1 When the government controls healthcare, it controls the people. 2) When the government increases its debt to an unsustainable level, it is easier to justify increasing taxes thus decreasing productivity and producing more poverty. In other words, the elimination of the middle-class. 3) Poverty increases the number […]

Please help Tony Radanovich

Editor, Thank you for publishing the article about the plight of our good friend Tony Radanovich and his need for our community’s financial and emotional support. We’re taking the time that we don’t have right now to write this letter, because we think that it’s so important. Tony is continuing to tremendously suffer, but has received little compassionate response for […]

Shame on Marshall Long

Editor, As our Mariposa County health officials and our population deal with a Covid-19 outbreak, it is more than disturbing to see an unmasked supervisor, Marshall Long, defying health and safety advice and slamming down a draft at the Airport Bar in the San Francisco Chronicle. A while back he invited two unlicensed, unqualified residents to make a presentation on […]

How many will die?

Editor, Two weeks ago, I wrote about “A lesson for Price Little” and the form of systemic racism the letter by Mr. Bill Collier seemed to support. This is a follow-up letter of deep concern. The President went to Valdosta, Ga., for another crazy rally to express his own grievances. It’s troubling how many MAGA citizens still believe the lies. […]
