    Karen Ohl: Those children actually here first

    The recent flood of immigrant children fleeing to our borders for sanctuary are seen by many as interlopers. Actually, they are returning to the land of their forefathers. Current mitochondrial DNA research from ancient remains of the cave girl in Mexico and DNA from the Clovis baby in Montana ...

    Sammy Grewal: We must secure borders against all

    I felt dismayed to read how many of my fellow citizens think about the children and parents crossing our sacred borders as a “humanitarian crisis.” It should be a matter of pride for all of us that our borders are secure from outsiders, be they invaders, smugglers or those illegally...

    A. G. Newton: Another good guy with a gun

    Newspapers like The Bee don’t necessarily hide the truth, they just make it harder to find. I was perusing the July 26 edition, the Local News section. There, tucked way back on Page B5, as part of the Nation/In Brief, was a story about a psychiatrist who defended himself and others by drawing...

    Joel Williamson: We can monetize both prisons and trains

    Re “California, served up six ways” (Issues & Ideas, July 27): I agree with Issues & Ideas page editor Mike Dunbar about not laughing off this “‘six Californias’ nonsense.” I for one am tired of the majority of the populace – aka San Francisco and Los...

    Greg Maszta: We conserve; why not Sacramento?

    In an effort to reduce water use, we replaced our shower head (HighSierra shower head), changing our flow from 2.5 gallons per minute to 1.5 gpm (40 percent savings), and our bathroom faucet aerator, changing our flow from 2.2 gpm to 0.7 gpm (68 percent savings). Total cost: $50. Monitoring landscape...

    Carol Milam: Sad that trees were removed

    I was shocked and saddened last Saturday to read and see photos of everything razed on the former site of Scenic Nursery, including the magnificent old deodar cedars and other smaller trees. This “arboricide” shows us that no matter how good, beautiful or beneficial something is, man...

    Richard Weiglein: Does College Avenue need turn lane?

    I read in The Bee that our city traffic staff wants to change College Avenue to a two-lane road with a left-turn lane in the middle, because of too many rear-end collisions due to people making left turns. I live on College Avenue, and will gladly welcome any reduction in traffic.

    Michael Valgos: Others tell Hillary Clinton’s story better

    I see that Hillary Clinton’s memoir, “Hard Choices,” is being outsold by three books that are also about her life. These three books seem to be telling a different story. Clinton’s spokesman, Nick Merrill, says the books should not have been allowed to be published, much...

    Robert Van Groningen: It’s a fact: ‘Obama don’t care’

    All Americans have dealt with Obamacare in some fashion. Now, almost six years into Obama’s presidency, everyone must accept the disheartening fact that Obama don’t care. Facts show Barack Obama to be an aloof and out of touch commander in chief. Granted, our president has a busy ...

    Jim Bonetti: Fish have plenty of water up north

    Regarding “Fish need much higher river flows” (Letters, July 13): Humans are already taking a backseat to the fish in many ways. The good Lord gave us dominion over the fish, but this fishy lobby feels sorry for the salmon and the other little slippery critters with complete disregard...
