Living wage law hurts workers

Kudos to Mr. Piazza for investing his precious free time standing up to the elitist living wage mob (“Fireworks at living wage forum,” Oct. 17).

Supports Dodd for Assembly

Sonoma and Napa have long shared a friendly rivalry over our wine and tourism industries. Though our two regions may see each other as competitors, we have much more in common with shared roots in agriculture that are critical to our economic prosperity.

Wake up Sonoma

Commissioner Robert Felder, who opposed the three-story element of the hotel, said, “Don’t try too hard to bring the big city to Sonoma. It still has a different feel than San Francisco.”

A heartfelt thank you

Kudos to Nicholas Greben for his lovely letter to the editor about Sue Holman and Susan Weeks. Their selfless dedication to Meals on Wheels and the clients knows no bounds.

Proposition 45: The dollars speak to the issue

We have been Kaiser Health Plan members for over 30 years. We are pleased with their healthcare, but extremely displeased with their premium increases. Letters to the company and CEO proved futile. We‘ve “downsized” the plan several times to make it “more affordable” with higher co-pays and deductibles, finally taking the most minimum plan offered.

Hope next editor is passionate

Sad is the way I feel when I read recent issues of the Index-Tribune. If I had one wish it would be that David Bolling was still the editor. If I can’t have that wish, my next wish is that someone who is equally as eloquent and articulate, as community involved and aware, and as passionate about his or her responsibilities as editor fills the position.

Hanna Boys Center a fantastic community member

We’re writing to express our heartfelt gratitude and to acknowledge what a fantastic community member Hanna Boys Center truly is. Though rather unassuming, Hanna Boys Center quietly returns young people to the fullest expressions of their true selves.

Stop stealing signs

I agree with Jackie Lee, please stop stealing signs! I have replaced my signs for Cameron Stuckey, twice now. Indeed it is cost prohibitive to keep replacing them!

Praises all of Valley’s stars

I want to thank Nicholas Greben for his letter to the editor in last week’s paper. In his letter, Nicholas honored two volunteers, Sue Holman and Susan Weeks, for their dedicated and long-standing work with Meals on Wheels in Sonoma Valley.

Lynch wrong on many levels

The recent “editorial” called “Love and hate in Sonoma” strikes me as wrong on so many levels that I feel compelled to write.

Did Sonoma Valley Fund forget Meals On Wheels?

Your Sept. 16 article tells of the honoring of service for the 26 Star Volunteers by the Sonoma Valley Fund. Congratulations to all of these outstanding volunteers for their recognition is well deserved.

Clean Power savings questioned

I’m confused! Last I heard, the “savings” on the actual power portion of the (Sonoma Clean Power) bill would be 3 percent the first year and unknown thereafter! Has that changed in percent and duration?

Campaign signs missing

Editor, Index-Tribune: Madolyn Agrimonti drove past my house yesterday to check if her sign had been stolen. She is hearing from supporters that (so far) 25 of her blue and white signs have been stolen from front yards. Is any other City Council candidate having this problem? Gary Edwards offered to buy her replacement signs.… Continue Reading >>

Bolling has been moral compass

Sometimes a picture says a thousand words. The moisture-laden inscription, “Goodbye” told me something was amiss. Somehow I sensed that this was not going to be another stirring erudite missive from David Bolling.

Letter-to-the-Editor-698x408

Thanks for clearing issues

Editor, Index-Tribune: I write this letter long overdue, so many times have I felt the impulse to, after reading Editor Bolling’s columns – always so perfect in their informativeness, their heartfelt aim at accuracy and reason – what a true journalist. I don’t know what is taking him away; only want to say thanks for… Continue Reading >>

New band director lauded

I had just phoned Sonoma Valley High School to inquire about their new band director and tell them how fabulous I think he is and how amazing the band sounds!

Letter-to-the-Editor-698x408

Please vote for Edwards for council

Over the years I have had the opportunity to see Sonoma leadership in action. Gary Edwards is the only city council candidate that stands out as having been actively engaged.

Dismayed at Bolling’s departure

I am quite dismayed at the departure of David Bolling from the paper. We have had a subscription for over 20 years and I feel that this event will be the demise of the paper.
