Letters to the Editor for Aug. 4, 2010


Construction projects moving forward in Calaveras

    Build it and they will come.
    The treasured line from the movie “Field of Dreams” has a double meaning in Calaveras County, where two important construction projects are moving forward.
    Yes, the county’s inmates will come to the new, 280-bed jail in San Andreas — although few will be happy there is suddenly room at the new inn.

Letters to the Editor for Aug. 2, 2010


Congress should pass timber payments legislation

    Tuolumne County Superintendent Joe Silva will in September repeat what has become a familiar pilgrimage: He will fly to Washington, D.C. to lobby for renewal of the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act, which expires next year.
    Behind the act’s euphemistic, bureaucratic name is hard, cold cash.
  

Reduction in county fees appropriate, appreciated

    It’s like seeing Isaac Newton’s apple fall back up into the tree.
    For the inexorable rise of government fees, you see, is like gravity in reverse.
    The law seems as immutable as Newton’s: When all costs, prices and inflation indices around us fall, fees still rise — as if driven by laws of physics that no mere mortal can change.
    Until now.
