The Main Street looked sad. Along both sides of it, many storefronts were empty. On the street, garbage blew along with the wind past small groups of people dressed in clothes which were dirty, and gang tagging marks along the street and walls. The park in the center of town was missing many…

Investing in programs that improve the lives of our children is critical. Laura Parmer-Lohan is a working mom who staunchly supports our local schools and knows how important it is to have access to early childcare for those of all abilities.

I’m writing to encourage your readers to support Christina Corpus for San Mateo County Sheriff. If she wins, she will be the first Latina Sheriff in California’s history. But, more importantly, she is open to community input, in fact seeks it out.

This is not the first time that gas prices have impacted our wallets. This is, however, a time when we can do something about it. Rising inflation and high gas prices are impacting San Mateo County residents and we must take action to mitigate the effects. As County Supervisor, I have been w…

The race for San Mateo County Sheriff is not just an ordinary political election; it’s a race between the status quo and the future. A race for all voices vs. select voices. An event resembling that of David and Goliath. It is a race that represents the end of an era of injustices, iniquitie…

Dear Editor:

We are so fortunate to live in a community that has confidence and trust in our local law enforcement unlike several other cities around the country. And yet I was disheartened and sad to read the negative responses from our governmental and community-based leaders questioning and doubting the results of their commissioned survey because they were more positive than they expected.

Dear Editor: The city of Half Moon Bay has announced it is considering appealing the adverse ruling in the Sewer Authority Mid-coastside litigation. This would be futile. The ruling by Judge Rudy was decisive, calling the city’s legal theory “unreasonable.” The City Council should abandon its quest and work to rebuild SAM.

Dear Editor: I am writing in response to the Coastside County Water District’s proposed “Water Shortage Contingency Plan” and “likely” implementation of such in March 2022 as reported by August Howell in the Feb. 16 Half Moon Bay Review.

Dear Editor: It’s unfortunate that the Review’s article on the Feb. 9 Planning Commission meeting omits many of the relevant facts of the off-leash pilot project (Review, Feb. 16). Many Coastsiders have been involved for years in the effort to develop the pilot, negotiating and developing a plan that would be beneficial for the entire community, including taking into account the environmental impact of the project.

Dear Editor: I, for one, am glad to hear Mayor Debbie Ruddock altered her position in favor of deferring electrification requirements for local greenhouses. This would have caused serious financial harm to Rocket Farms and others.

Dear Editor: The New York Times reported on Feb. 4 that satellites have detected large methane emitters in much of the oil-producing areas of the world. “Large” means releasing 25 tons per hour. They found about 1,200 of these “ultra emitters” in Russia, Turkmenistan, the U.S., the Middle East and Algeria.

Dear Editor:

In response to recent state law, the city of Half Moon Bay created a Redistricting Advisory Committee in mid-2021 and selected seven members of our community to evaluate census data and update existing district maps. The task was to review 2020 census data, solicit input from the public, and draft maps from the public with the intent of balancing district populations using updated census numbers.

Dear Editor:

I am at a loss for words over the cancellation of Dream Machines. Please commit significant reporting resources to this issue, as there has to be more to the story. It is unimaginable that, with planning for many months, the organizers are just now learning about leased farm land being an obstacle.

Dear Editor: The Freedom to Vote Act would help prevent egregious voter suppression and help counteract the 2013 Supreme Court decision that gutted the 1965 Voting Rights Act.

Dear Editor: Way to go Midcoast Community Council! Thanks for proving how closed-minded you are. Your decision to oppose a pilot program at Pillar Point Bluff shows you’re not even open to a fact-finding mission to determine whether off-leash dog walking is workable.
