Budget affects Democrats and Republicans

I am writing to comment on Stephen Winkler's July 3 submission entitled "Budget Cuts" and the subsequent online response from a reader who dismissed Mr. Winkler's assessment that budget cuts are not a partisan or ideological issue because they impact all Californians, including our seniors and children.

Emergency vehicles have the right-of-way

Who died and made Bobb sheriff?

I honestly don't recall electing Merrick Bobb as sheriff. I pay more than $500 a month for my HMO health insurance plan and often have to wait weeks to see a doctor. That's only if I get authorization for my referral.

A message about oil for our elected officials

Below is a letter that I have sent to Gov. Schwarzenegger, Sens. Boxer, and Feinstein, and Reps. McKeon, George Runner, and Strickland. I'm hoping it will stir people from their slumber (if the gas and food prices haven't already) and encourage them to make their voices heard in Sacramento and Washington.

HOAs can and are getting on board with drought restrictions

"Following the water rules" (Thursday's Signal) expresses a legitimate concern of SCV HOA residents - they are concerned about penalties for letting their lawns go brown as they cut back water use - landscaping accounts for some 60 percent of residential water use - because associations have rules about care and upkeep of homes, landscape and lawns.
