Experience key on board

Editor, It is my pleasure to know and respect both of the intelligent and community minded women who are running for the position of MCUSD School Board member. Although they run as District 3 candidates, we all get to vote for one or the other, because school board members vote on matters affecting the futures of all our children. My […]

Grateful for support

Editor, On behalf of Habitat for Humanity of Mariposa County, I would like to sincerely thank the 11 restaurants who have been participating this week in our annual Dining-Out Event. Many of these restaurant owners had gone through hard times this summer with the Ferguson Fire, but when we asked if they wanted to participate this year, they readily agreed. […]

McClintock view wrong

Editor, I listened with shock during the Morse/ McClintock debate as Tom McClintock bemoaned the good old days and stated that schools were better off when the management and funding of the schools were all local. That has to be the silliest thing I’ve ever heard him say. You see, I am a retired teacher, so I do have some […]

Vote yes on Measure M

Editor, We urge the voters of Mariposa County to vote “yes” on Measure “M.” With the passage of Measure “M,” it is promised that the money will be used for law enforcement, fire protection and road improvement. Mariposa County residents cannot afford to neglect this opportunity to increase funds for the safety of our county. Our sheriff has been doing […]

Eppler good choice for board

Editor, I have known and worked with Judy Eppler for over 40 years. Currently, I serve with her as a board member for the Mariposa County Schools Foundation (Kids First). When I first met her, she was a teacher and counselor at Mariposa County High School. She then went on to become principal at Mariposa Middle School and now serves […]

Hospital saved her life

Editor, On July 30 of this year, I had a stroke. I had never been aware that I had a heart problem. A friend who I was with at the time noticed signs that I was having a problem of which I was not aware. We’d been working in a downtown gift shop all day and had just closed. She […]

Highway 140 needs visitor center

Editor, I attended the candidates’ debate last Sunday at the Mariposa County High School. Either Rep. Tom McClintock lied or hasn’t the foggiest idea about our end of his district. Highway 140 is the only one of the four main entrances to Yosemite that does not have a visitor center. When Representative McClintock was asked about the visitor center that […]

Morse right for education

Editor, I intend to vote for Jessica Morse for District 4 Congress rather than Tom McClintock and I urge you to do the same. While many issues separate the two candidates, public education is a key one. Jessica, whose parents were both public school teachers, believes public education is the pathway into the middle class. For our businesses and families […]

Morse best choice in election

Editor, I have lived in California’s 4th District for most of my life, and Jessica Morse is the right public servant to represent us in Congress. Jessica is fifth generation Californian, and her family still operates a small mill on their original homestead outside of Auburn. Jessica served 10 years under both parties and will continue her bipartisan approach, when […]

Eppler has passion to serve

Editor, As we come closer to election day, each of you are starting to look at the candidates and trying to decide for whom to vote. I would like to offer my opinion in one race. Judy Eppler is running for reelection to the Mariposa County Unified School Board. I recommend you support her relection. I have worked for MCUSD […]
