The Sutter County health director has stated that everyone entering a retail store is required to wear a facial covering. However, to face mask or not to face mask is the question.

We have lived in the area surrounding Happy Park for 20 years. Annexed by Yuba City around 18-19 years ago, we expected the same treatment as other city citizens – wrong. 

No shelter-in-place in Yuba/Sutter? I am an essential worker. I was on my way to work on Saturday crossing the bridge from Marysville to Linda, when I saw they were having motocross races.

I’m a 52-year-old homeless man who has a medical condition known as CHF, bad heart. Being homeless in Yuba County was bad, yet now with COVID-19 it’s really bad. I’m very high risk because of health issues. 

I’m just wondering why (as a former Yuba City resident) we can’t open Fremont Hospital back up to help with the surge of COVID-19 cases that are coming. They are coming, too, so why use our high schools? 

I am a retired teacher of the Yuba City Unified School District. I am writing in response to the letter written to the district from the Yuba City Teachers Association. 

After digesting the recent announcement on “mortgage payments relief,” I’m wondering why the governor and/or county supervisors aren’t touting relief on property taxes. 

I’ve seen a lot of information in the paper regarding the schools, but what I don’t see is a plan for the district to move quickly towards online learning that actually counts.

Today as a human race we are facing some uncertainty. A virus is running uncontrolled amongst mankind with no end in sight -- it truly puts things into perspective. 

I have not seen any information posted that details how many people have been tested in Sutter and Yuba counties. It would be helpful if Dr. Luu could provide this info to the Appeal-Democrat to publish so we know where we stand in the community.

As a former competitive target shooter and daughter of a former national rifle champion (Miralotte Ickes), I was very perturbed by the two photos accompanying the congratulatory article on Madelynn Erickson in the March 22 Appeal Democrat Sports Section.

The whole world has assumed that the most prudent course of action is to fight the virus with fury. Hence, school closings, shelter-in-place requirements, cancellation of sporting events, restaurants and bars shuttered, travel restrictions, etc.

At a recent meeting at the Bethel AME Church, the idea of renaming Fifth Street in Marysville after Martin Luther King Jr. was discussed. 

The governing board of the Yuba Community College District has two distinct duties. Clearly, our first duty — maintaining the high quality of education received by the over 13,000 students who attend classes at one of our six campuses — must never waiver. But we have another important duty a…

Even though we live in Yuba City, as a grandparent raising a granddaughter who goes to the Marysville Charter Academy for the Arts, I would like to know who the crazy person is who came up with the idea of putting a cannabis business within 1/2 mile of three schools. 

Vote NO; It’s the neighborly thing to do. Voting no on taxes and bonds encourages our elected officials to use creative problem solving. When we vote to approve bonds and other methods of taxation, we are voting to force our neighbors to pay or risk the loss of their property.

Being a military dependent for the majority of my life, I am delighted to see so many people expressing their loyalty to our wonderful country by flying the American flag. 

Yuba Community College District wants more of our tax dollars – this time $228.4 Million! They have a lot of nerve since we are currently paying on four Yuba College School Bonds as follows:
