Letter to the Editor

Obama’s health care plan like the Yugo

As I put pen to paper, I am watching our president, aka “the Shamwow salesman,” telling us that his health care act is going to be wonderful. All we need to do is wait until all the problems shake out. This reminds me of the Yugo, that eastern European auto that was here for a […]

Fall back into fabulousness

It may only happen twice a year, but daylight saving time is definitely a moment worth savoring. In fact, you could say that daylight saving time is so nice we have to celebrate it twice. In this case, the celebration took place most recently Nov. 3 in the form of “falling back.” Daylight saving time […]

It’s difficult to serve in traffic control

The Rolling Hill Elementary Walking School Bus program got a lot of attention recently. Actually, the most attention was given to Steven Feudner, a father and child advocate charged with getting kids from and back to their designated “adult.” Mr. Feudner was a paid agent for the school and was victimized by so-called “parents,” agitated […]

Time to impeach the president

It is high time for Congress to do its duty and impeach this president. President Clinton faced the wrath of Congress because of a sexual encounter with an intern, a wrong to his wife and his office. Obama duped the Democrats in the Senate to meet after-hours without Republican knowledge and passed his health care […]

Don’t let your cats roam freely

It always amazes me that cat owners think it is perfectly OK for them to allow their beloved cat to roam freely and then cry when something happens to it. If you really care about your pet, keep it in the house or keep it leashed in your yard or in an enclosed area. The […]

Traffic issues at Laurel Creek School, too

After reading recent letters to the editor and news articles concerning traffic issues at Rolling Hills School, I say good luck getting anything done. As a resident of Cashew Court, directly across the street from Laurel Creek Elementary School, we have experienced the same problems and more for years. We have met with school district […]

RA article didn’t reflect reality

The article on rheumatoid arthritis was way too simplistic. To assume that exercise and weight loss was the end all, be all, was very discouraging for a majority of the population that fights pain and joint replacements on a regular basis. Let’s discuss the never-ending search to find the right medicine to stop the deterioration […]

Serving those who have served us

We took time as a nation Monday to celebrate Veterans Day and honor our nation’s current and past service members. We owe a great debt of gratitude to these men and women who give their country the utmost in personal sacrifices and serve so that we may all enjoy freedom. Despite these significant contributions, our […]

Things to ask yourself

There is an old saying, “All politics is local,” and I believe this is true. At this time Obamacare is, to be kind, in total disarray. The president is being questioned about his misleading statements. “If you like your insurance, you can keep it, period.” Now we are being told that we do not understand […]

Get involved in Wreath Project this year

In 2006, a new tradition of laying wreaths at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery during the holiday time, in honor of our fallen, was started. About 300 wreaths were purchased and each gravesite was covered that first year. Every year since then, the goal of honoring each gravesite with a wreath has been accomplished. With […]

‘Affordable housing’ filled with flaws

Are you uncomfortable with the increasing scale of the homeless and street people who are sleeping everywhere and nowhere on the mostly busy sidewalks and parkways of Fairfield? This may look now like a small slice of the population of Fairfield. However, the slice is growing. Consider that the local housing authority offices will be […]

Traffic bad at Rolling Hills Elementary School

I am a resident on Fieldcrest Avenue and I would like to echo the concerns that have been raised about traffic congestion at Rolling Hills Elementary School. People picking up children at the school park in the intersection of Fieldcrest and Moss Valley Drive are blocking the street. I’ve had people try to wave me […]

Health care law evidence of lying

It’s obvious by now that Obamacare (aka Obamacrash) really is the train wreck so many people predicted it would be. Also, the way things are coming to light, no honest person can deny President Obama and his cohorts have been lying to us all along about this law. The American people never wanted this health care […]

Strengthening the educational link

We should reach out and encourage our parents to participate in our educational programs. Parents can serve as a valuable member of the education team. Both teacher and parents will agree that they want the best for all children in the educational system, but at times parents fail to work together as a member of […]

Driving home the driving message again

After seeing the carnage on the news, then reading about the family of five killed in Lodi, I was once again angered by the stupidity of the driving public. Drivers are out of control, the law and safety of others is ignored. Nobody wants to hear my rants about traffic issues, probably the least-responded to […]

Clear and present danger

Take it as truth that everyone on planet Earth complains about their government. But only in one country has that trait metastasized into pathology. How? Credit two billionaires whose father was a founding member of the government-hating John Birch Society. Credit demagogues who are experts at inflaming the public. Credit a Speaker of the House […]

Thanks for helping Bob’s Kids

On behalf of the Vacaville Elks, I would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation and admiration for the community-based fundraising efforts of Vacaville’s Vasquez family, known as El Rancho Vasquez. For several years, this dedicated group has hosted an annual fundraiser to benefit local charities and individuals in need. Recently, El Rancho Vasquez hosted a […]

Kirchubel needs to wake up

Reference Mike Kirchubel’s column (Oct. 28), “Today, I fix the health care glitch.” His remedy for eliminating insurance companies and letting the government take over health care, as well as negotiating drug prices with pharmaceutical companies, is merely the beginning of his socialistic/communistic ideas. Dream on, Mr. Kirchubel. We, the people, will not tolerate it. […]

Speeders back in the neighborhood

I think we need the Robocop back on our street between Kentucky, Vermont, Fourth and Utah streets. The speeders are back! Robocop didn’t fool our Indy 500 drivers very long. Is there another idea the city of Fairfield has to alleviate the danger other than a temporary light warning sign telling drivers, “Slow down . […]

City accountable for road repair

At the Fairfield town hall meeting that took place Oct. 26, former Fairfield Mayor Karin MacMillan suggested that a timeline plan be put in place to repair the streets. Kindly remember that we citizens passed Measure P in November 2012 for a 1 percent sales tax that is expected to bring in around $13 million […]

Thanks for helping after accident

On Oct. 19, my husband and I were bringing our great-niece and nephew home from their soccer game in Davis. As we neared our Travis Boulevard exit, I had a blowout. We spun around hit the oleander bushes in the ditch and ended up with our Envoy just feet from the sound wall. As soon as […]

Participation leads to blood drive success

On behalf of NorthBay Healthcare, we want to extend a big thank you to all the donors who rolled up their sleeves Oct. 28 in Fairfield and Oct. 29 in Vacaville at community blood drives. Thanks to their generosity, BloodSource was able to collect 176 units of the precious resource, which helps save countless lives […]

Shameful action by Glashoff neighbors

The general plan to save Suisun Valley from asphalt and rooftops took years with a goal to save agricultural land with a way to attract tourists. The plan had guidelines that were in place for businesses to follow. Larry and Maria Glashoff met these when they started having events on their property. The neighbors who complained […]

Land use decision decided by bullying

Some farms in Suisun Valley can now host weddings, have bed and breakfasts and create other types of fun events for the public to enjoy the bounty and beauty of their land. What a welcome change! It provides much-needed stability of income in the business of agriculture, which is extremely risky. It also satisfies members […]

Don’t add fluoride to Suisun’s water

With regard to the potential of adding fluoride to the water in Suisun City, I would like to share with you why I would be most grateful if it were not to be added. I moved to Suisun City from Sacramento a little more than three years ago with horrible cystic acne all over my […]

Think about the visually impaired

It was George Eliot who said, “What do we live for if not to make life less difficult for each other?” More often than not, this is simply a matter of raising others’ level of awareness, which is the reason for this letter. The above quote comes to mind as I observe obstacles encountered by […]

Shooting of teen terrible, but understandable

It was a terrible accident that took place in the Sonoma County area and I can understand why the people protested over the incident of a 13-year-old being shot. What people fail to realize is that gang members start young males around that age group. They call them cubs and one of the acts they […]

Why should we trust the president?

Have you noticed that every so often someone does something that stops you cold? A person or persons commit such a horrible act that it seems inconceivable to us? We just cannot fathom anyone doing such a heinous thing. I have an idea that such events happen because we cannot believe we are capable of […]

Hipwaders something to be proud about

I am responding to the article written by Adrienne Harris about the pumpkin patch festivities at Gum Grove in Suisun (Oct. 25). What a wonderful day of pony rides, face painting, climbing hay bales, pitching pumpkins, etc. But the best part of the day for my daughter was the Hipwaders band, which Ms. Harris omitted […]

First, Trayvon Martin’s mother testified before the U.S. Senate that “I just wanted to come here to . . . let you know how important it is that we amend this stand your ground because it certainly did not work in my case.” The fact is that George Zimmerman was acquitted based on self-defense, not […]
