Tim Myers: Myers Musing: Term limits or not? That is the question

One of the great benefits of having young adult children in college includes the benefit of receiving their textbooks when they finish their classes (resale is a joke) and updating myself on the changes that occurred since my own college days.

Alan Ferdman: Neighborhood councils play a vital role

Tim Myers' column, "The problem with districts" (Aug. 1) should have been titled "The problem without districts."

Margaret Donnellan Todd: In defense of the library system

Roger Gitlin: Cut up that AARP card and send it back

Last April, I read with great interest a column by Paul Strickland titled "Save our seniors" (April 16). Strickland referenced the then-newly passed health-care legislation - aka Obamacare - that cuts some $528 billion from Medicare, that includes $136 billion from Medical Care Advantage.

John Chiang: I’m doing my job, Sen. Strickland should do his

Dealing with gridlock

If these freeway stoppages become any more frequent, I propose installing vending machines and an Andy Gump portable toilet on the freeway aprons every half-mile to ease our pain. Wi-Fi wouldn't be a bad idea, either.

Bravo to Judge Walker

Thank God for the so-called "activist judge" who had the courage and good sense to affirm the U.S. Constitution's most basic premise, that all citizens are subject to "equal protection under law." This idea is so important, it is written across the very entrance to the U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C.

Keep libraries the same

The editorial in Sunday's Signal ("The city should take over the SCV's libraries," Aug. 1) makes it clear that the bottom line of the library takeover is cost savings, admirable during these economic times.

The county system works

Librarians are among the most highly educated and poorly paid. Librarians are required to have their master's degrees. It takes years to see results of their influence, as noted in The Signal's Aug. 4 article, "Two sides to the story."
