Tuesday's Letters to the Editor

Alcohol and behavior

EDITOR: Alcohol causes the least shining moments in one's life. It's its forte. Being obnoxious at a party, falling down in public — many can testify that their most embarrassing moments happened when they were under the influence. Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom. But trying to break into a woman's home at 3:40 a.m. is a different level than the usual alcohol-induced regrets.

One early article on this matter said that the previous episode in San Diego helped spread this story fast and furious. Really? If not for San Diego, breaking into a vulnerable woman's house would not be so big a deal? This is totally creepy and astonishing on its own merits. Supervisor Efren Carrillo should be done as a public servant. He has a friendly face, but so do a lot of other predators.


Santa Rosa

Our right to object

EDITOR: Despite Curtis Ashbeck's assertion (“No right to object,” Letters, Sunday), I/we do have the right to object to the flight school proposal at Healdsburg Municipal Airport as citizens of the unincorporated area surrounding Healdsburg. Is he suggesting we live in a “no man's land”? And, again, what we are protesting is the flight school proposal not the airport.

I did my due diligence and know very well that I purchased a house near an airport. I have met with the airport manager, spent weekends observing (very little) air traffic and pulled Federal Aviation Administration flight logs. The airport is part of the landscape I'm well aware.

What isn't part of the landscape is a flight school that the city of Healdsburg gave a written promise it would never impose on the citizens of Healdsburg, all the citizens.



Santa Rosa power

EDITOR: Santa Rosa's decision to join Sonoma Clean Power helps everyone. Having Sonoma County's largest city on board from the beginning will make the program financially stronger, as this will help keep expenses lower with savings passed along to electric customers.
