To the Mata family

To the editor, On my last “Letter to the Editor,” I wrote, “If they don’t respect deceased San Benitians, do you think Las Vivoras are going to respect live San Benitians?”  Mas claro no canta un gallo! My condolences to the Mata family. Enrique Danache Tweet

Letters to the editor: On the beaches re-opening

We asked readers online to give us their opinion on the beaches opening this past weekend. Below are their responses. “Wow,” is about all I can say. It was unbelievably crazy at the beach; traffic, golf carts, restaurants, and retail stores. Most did not use masks or practice social distancing at all. A total madhouse. …

Response to “The Case for Canceling school altogether”

Dear Editor: In response to your editorial, I am a native of Brownsville, born and raised. I am an elementary school teacher in Houston.

Letter to the Editor–Kick Them. Kick Them. Kick Them

To The Editor, I am not a fan of the school board president but I would not sign a petition to remove him based on a DWI or being an alleged drunk. If a doctor was caught and charged with a DWI or being drunk, would he be disqualified to practice being a doctor? If …

!?Seriously?!?

By Joe F. Rodriguez Special to the News I was, as the saying goes, “on the fence” in regards to whether to officially file for a City Commissioner ballot position to serve on the City Commission. When I opt to write an OP ED on the San Benito News, it is to make the citizens …

LOCAL FOLKLORE: Halloween Short Stories from the Community

La Palma – The Palm Tree To the Editor, In the early 1950s, streets in el Jardín were unpaved, and kerosene stoves were still common. The introduction of street lights extended our playing time after dark and responsibilities like going to Don Pacheco’s store to get last minute groceries. One of the games that came …

Dragon Smirk

To the Editor, I just got home from the San Benito City Commission meeting that went on tonight (2-1-11), and let me tell you I was very upset as to the way our mayor responded in regards to the logos on the water tower on Williams Road. Right away his comments and smirking laughter on …

Going to the Dogs

To the Editor, The times I have used the Heaven Trail Park I have enjoyed the walks and jogging, I do. I think it’s a good venue for the people who want to exercise. The community needs it. But lately the experience has not been good. There is too much dog feces at too many …
