Letter to the Editor: A CLEAR, COMPLETE ANALYSIS OF FORMER COUNTRY CLUB SITUATION

Editor, Times-Advocate: This is reference to a recent column by Rick Elkin, his June 7 piece: “Building Frankenstein: The city council and the former Escondido Country Club development.” Thank you for the clear and complete analysis of the situation at the former Escondido Country Club. As a neighbor, I am encouraged that your paper has accurately, as I perceive it, […]

Letter to the Editor: WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF SCIENCE

Editor, Times-Advocate: “First you ignore me, then you laugh at me, then you fight me, then I win.” Gandhi The house of cards in your recent editorial is the entire “conservative” political position that global warming isn’t even happening. Now you are bragging about a theoretically possible technology (largely government funded, and remember it’s only a theory) that would solve […]

Letter to the Editor: HOUSING CRISIS WILL NOT BE ADDRESSED BY NEWLAND SIERRA PROJECT

Editor, Times-Advcoate: It is a huge disservice to your readers and residents of the area to publish (David Ross, 03/15) such a biased, one-sided praising of the Newland Sierra project. This sycophant for the developers has drunk their kool aid and regurgitated their contents on your readers. The housing shortage we face in the county will not be addressed by […]

Letter to the Editor: A TALE OF TWO STUDENTS

Editor, Times-Advocate: Why do illegal aliens receive resident tuition at California colleges and universities but those who hold legal visas must pay exorbitant international tuition? Angela came to this country with her mother when she was a little girl. So did Maria. They both attended the same middle school and 4 years of high school here in San Diego County. […]

Letter to the Editor: NEWLAND SIERRA MAY HAVE VIOLATED CEQA PROCEDURES

Editor, Times-Advocate: Newland Sierra is a (2,135 homes) proposed development at the old Merriam Mountains site at Deer Springs road and I-15. It is interesting why the County Planning Commission has allowed the use of “bundling” project meetings to possibly approve 10 developments into one meeting, when only 4 meetings per yr (1 project per mtg) are county policy. Could […]

Letter to the Editor: FAINT PRAISE IS BETTER THAN NONE

Editor, Times-Advocate: I extend my appreciation as a subscriber that you devoted time and space to the Democratic candidates for local office. I also want to commend you for spelling Democratic correctly. RICH REINHOFER, San Marcos

Letter to the Editor: SAN ONOFRE NUCLEAR WASTE

Editor, Times-Advocate: I am a nuclear engineer by degree, a retired VP from a large engineering and construction company based in San Francisco, and have been a registered nuclear engineer in California, a member of the American Nuclear Society, the American Society of Military Engineers, the Project Management Institute, and a nuclear speakers bureau in San Francisco. I still make […]

Letter to the Editor: THE DARK SIDE OF THE COUNTY’S VIEWS OF LAND USE

Editor, Times-Advocate: Re: “County readies to disrespect the voters—big time” It’s not often I’m on the same page as David Ross on issues about land use, but this is one of them. I am impressed and grateful how Ross’s opinion column (May 1, 2018) accurately frames the dark side of Wardlaw’s view on legal authority for “bundling GPA’s,” to expedite […]
