Letter: Thank you for publishing Marsha Sutton’s column

September 26, 2022
Thank you for the courage to publish Marsha Sutton’s column on the California Teachers Association investigation of parents. It’s chilling that most of the local media chose not to cover this story.

Commentary: Oceanside Unified School District trustees AWOL

Bradley Tobias March 4, 2022
To the Oceanside Unified School District trustees, part of your jobs as elected government officials is to be in front of your constituents. We deserve much better than what you’re producing. To be honest, you’re failing in many other categories. You seem more concerned with holding the title than actually doing the job you’ve been entrusted to do.

Commentary: Carlsbad aging expo highlights resources

Lucy Wheeler March 4, 2022
Just how we utilize these additional 13-15 years of longer life expectancy is not left to chance. Helping people age comfortably has captured the eyes of big business, to our benefit and theirs.

Letter: Encinitas city manager outright wrong on Leichtag

October 15, 2021
City Manager Pam Antil didn’t live or work in Encinitas when the homeless Safe Parking Lot was opened on Leichtag Foundation property.

Commentary: Leucadia faces the wrongs of ‘by-right’

Nicola Ranson August 12, 2021
Ask the Encinitas City Council to stand up for Leucadia, local laws and its own Planning Commission, rather than cave in to pressures from the building industry. The alternative gives developers a carte blanche to flout the regulations that have evolved to keep our backyard attractive for generations to come.

Letter: Blakespear a proven leader as Encinitas mayor

November 1, 2020
When Catherine Blakespear was elected to the city council in 2014, and as mayor in 2016 and 2018, she provided leadership that allowed for diverse opinions, public input, inclusiveness and transparency. That’s why all of the current Encinitas elected City Council members — and numerous other local leaders — are supporting her reelection.

Letter: Cardiff School District — delay and deflect

October 8, 2020
It’s long past due for the Cardiff School District to own up to its irresponsible decisions and stop manipulating parents’ emotions to deflect the blame.

Letter: Where were challenges to Cardiff ‘park’ incursions before?

October 8, 2020
I’m curious where the people behind Save the Park were almost 20 years ago, when the Science Lab and student bathrooms were installed within the “park” boundary. But then again, those changes to the “park” didn’t affect the views of some neighbors.

Commentary: Community vetted Cardiff School project; plaintiffs won’t accept it

Jon Cohen August 23, 2020
If Save the Park prevails with its latest court action, it will waste more of Cardiff School District’s already strained budget. And, underscoring the ultimate folly of their unrelenting campaign, it will do nothing to create a better educational experience for kids or improved recreational space for Cardiff.

Letter: Greta Thunberg or Veruca Salt?

July 6, 2020
Those familiar with Willie Wonka may remember Veruca Salt, the spoiled, rich brat whose signature line was "I WANT IT NOW!" Parents — consider your child's entire future, not just the next year or two. The world doesn't need any more Veruca Salts. It needs more Greta Thunbergs with environmental consciousness to look beyond the now and into the future.

EDITORIAL: Encinitas protests run against our better nature

North Coast Current April 20, 2020
During the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic, a Cardiff church opened its doors to the leadership and expertise of the time to treat the ill of its community. A century later, the measures in place during today’s viral crisis are designed to help prevent the use of our churches for such a purpose again.

EDITORIAL: San Diego County: ‘No’ on Measure B; ‘yes’ on Measure A

North Coast Current February 25, 2020
Measure B supporters note that 60% of Newland Sierra housing would be affordably priced for the working class. But assuming it’s built, what would that “affordable” price be at completion given the continuing rise in prices, up 8% over the past year alone? Moreover, what’s their definition of “working class?”
