Letter to the Editor: SUPERVISOR GASPAR LEADS CRITICAL EFFORT TO ELIMINATE JUVENILE FEES

Editor, Times-Advocate: I would like to applaud Supervisor Kristin Gaspar for leading the effort to eliminate juvenile fees and debt in San Diego County. Juvenile fees and debt are incurred by youth offenders as payment for their time in the juvenile justice system. Supervisor Gaspar explained, “As a county we continue to make meaningful investments to transform our juvenile justice […]

Letter to the Editor: ENOUGH OF THE NAME CALLING AND BIASED REPORTING!

Editor, Times-Advocate:  The article “Days of Vinegar and Thorns,” in The Times-Advocate is about as unbiased as a heart attack! Another thing, why as a legitimate news journalist do you resort to name calling? I quote,”Obersturmführer Nathan Fletcher,” why not just Nathan Fletcher, or County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher? It makes you sound like someone with a chip on their shoulder. […]

There is nothing political about stating the scientific data of our local situation in this pandemic.  The facts are 99.988 % of Escondidoans have NOT contracted this virus as of 5/19/2020 which is a full […]

Letter to the Editor: I DARE YA!

Editor, Times-Advocate: Alex MacLachlan, president of the Downtown Business Association, wants to reopen businesses in the middle of a pandemic, because — duh — a pandemic has hurt the economy. So it makes perfect sense to reopen businesses that have no ability to provide safe social distancing — hair salons, for example. (When was the last time someone could color […]

Editor, Times-Advocate: Successful Grant application funding will benefit large Santa Margarita Watershed which crosses boundaries of multiple southern California counties (including north San Diego county).  Western Riverside Council of Governments (WRCOG) recently received federal grant funding to form a Santa Margarita Watershed Council.  The WaterSMART Program Phase I Grants invited states, Indian tribes, irrigation districts, water districts, local governmental entities, […]
