Group colleges
have ally in Newsom

I am a community higher education university student that has tailored on the web understanding since March 2020. I strongly oppose this remember election since Gov. Gavin Newsom has signed the most the latest funds that added benefits California neighborhood faculty college students by allotting $100 million for pupil housing and food stuff insecurity. Newsom has supported and enacted procedures that benefit the most susceptible groups in California, together with lower-earnings students like myself.

This recall is a blatant attack on the civil rights, liberties, and guidelines that are supported by the huge majority of Californians. My potential and the futures of other younger persons in the point out are dependent on blocking California from heading backward. To safeguard the potential we’re working towards, please vote no in this recall.

Weather coverage driven
by the mistaken priorities

I appreciated Ed Clendaniel’s column on Alaska and the effects of climate change. I’ve visited Alaska a amount of situations and search ahead to seeing the impressive scenery of Wrangell-St. Elias Nationwide Park.

Provided the reality that Alaska is warming a lot quicker than the relaxation of the country, you would expect that its citizens would realize what is occurring and support steps to beat it. Sad to say, the lobbyists and revenue of the oil and gas market have dominated the conversation in states and Washington.

When a United States senator (James Inhofe, R-Okla.) is ready to provide a snowball into the Senate chamber to “prove ” local weather modify is a hoax and even now retain his seat, there is a issue. Proposals for a carbon tax, the most effective way to decrease carbon emissions, are blocked. As prolonged as policy is established by marketing campaign contributions, alternatively than the community curiosity, our government will are unsuccessful us.

Letter wrongly equates
socialism, communism

Ed Kahl (“Path to socialism sales opportunities to authoritarianism,” Letters to the Editor, Page A6, Aug. 26) looks to imagine socialism often signifies Soviet-model and will make patently phony assertions about Britain in the 1970s.

I studied in England through that time and when all big industries — coal, steel, car, aerospace, rail, telecommunications — were nationalized, Britain was by no means authoritarian. There was a absolutely free press, free of charge speech and fair elections.
