Letters to the editor for Jan. 31, 2011

Student cell phone use needs strict enforcement

    Ninety-eight percent.
 That was the most startling statistic to emerge from last week’s Sonora High School Board discussion on student cell phone use.
    That, said junior Luke Houghton, is the percentage of students who violate a school rule against texting or otherwise using a cell phone in class. In other words, he said, everybody flouts the rule.
    Houghton should know: He’s the student representative on the school board.
    “It may be an enforcement issue,” Houghton understated.
    It also shows that Trustee Ed Clinite’s concern that using cell phones might be “distracting” to students is more than justified.

Housing renewal should be Jamestown’s next project

    The contrast is stark, even haunting.
    Jamestown’s Main Street, target of more than a half million dollars in beautification funds over the past decade, is a showplace. New sidewalks, planter boxes, improved building facades and brick-trimmed intersections are all part of an attractive downtown package.
    Locomotive No. 3, gleaming after a million-dollar overhaul, awaits visitors at Railtown 1897 State Historic Park. At Jamestown’s old jail, reclaimed from a Lodi-area theme park and refurbished with funds raised in a communitywide campaign, is a Rocca Park highlight.
