    Gene Coffman: Hanson makes Bee look silly

    I’ve been a Bee subscriber for over 16 years. While I don’t always agree with your editorials, I usually find them reasoned and thought provoking. Recently, I’ve noticed a trend toward blasting President Barack Obama. Many of your political cartoons (mostly from The Washington...

    Hans Roth: Obama supporters all on welfare?

    Today, President Barack Obama’s approval rating is 44 percent. Isn’t that about how many people are on welfare and receiving food stamps? Heck, that’s his voting base. Take from the right and give to the left and then go play pool and drink beer for a photo-op. I think we should...

    Irma Kaelemakule: Want birth control? Two options

    I am sick of listening to people getting bent out of shape because somebody does not want to pay for their birth control. The pill we’re talking about is not birth control, it is an abortion pill. Being pregnant is not an illness – my parents had 11 children and they welcomed all of ...

    Yaser Herrera: When government won’t help

    This is the sad story of a stray dog found late Saturday night. No public shelter was open, so a call to Oakdale animal control suggested letting him loose if I couldn’t keep him (technically a misdemeanor). Escalon Animal Shelter wouldn’t take him because they’re in a turf ...

    Parvez Singh: Importance of saving water

    Drought is affecting many people in the Stanislaus area; therefore, laws are put up to push the conservation of water. Citizens have a choice of conserving water, but they usually don’t because they don’t look at the big impact it’s having on crops and irrigation. Without water...

    David K. Ford: You knew where Fred Herman stood

    Sorry to learn of Fred Herman’s passing (“–30–” Our View, July 19). I remember when he was the local movie reviewer for The Bee, in the ’70s and ’80s. (Why don’t we have a local reviewer today?) I looked forward to his reviews, most of which I ...

    Shel Thompson: Outrageous costs destroy confidence

    Regarding “Senior living replaces park” (Page B1, July 15): $13.7 million for 50 540-square-foot apartments at 17th and G streets, a construction cost of $507.41 per foot. The developer, a compendium of companies specializing in pork-laced projects at public expense, says the price...

    S.M. Evens: Fire starters: Lapse in judgment, parenting

    As adults we spend nine-tenths of our life teaching our children not to play with fire or matches unless under adult supervision and not to turn on the burners on the stove or attempt to make/cook a meal, again, without an adult present, because of fire hazards. So these well-adjusted and well-supervised...

    Lance Bernard: Fairy tale begins innocently, has brutal end

    Let’s see. If Jeremiah Heaton gets recognized by the African Union, then he can claim to be a real state. People will settle in his kingdom and his subjects will need jobs and housing. He will need some infrastructure and a viable economy.

    William Phillips: Where are these kids’ parents?

    Regarding “Where is America’s compassion?” (Opinions, July 6): The question should be, where is the compassion and responsibility of the people having these children? When you live in squalor and poverty, why would you want to bring a child into that situation? You don’...
