Fresh out of UC Davis, I was hired by Clarence Summy, the then superintendent of the Yuba City High School District, to teach math. Our required dress included a tie with no jean pants allowed. In our home room first period we, the students and I, stood, put our hands over our heart, and sai…

Since my youngest son recently moved to San Francisco for work, I was drawn to the article on the Appeal’s front page about Mohammed Nuru, a former San Francisco public works director who was sentenced to seven years in federal prison for fraud and bribery. According to the article, “Nuru sh…

When I first arrived in the U.S., things were noticeably cheaper and the pace of life was slower: gasoline was 18 cents a gallon up until 1970. Both have changed for the worse. I feel like Ichabod Crane – out of place and out of time. The price of everything is skyrocketing. What justifies a…

I am writing in hope to bring awareness to a health problem that is affecting many residents in the County of Sutter. I myself am a resident of Sutter County and currently a Social Work student who has witnessed this concern firsthand. Bringing awareness for those who are or have battled wit…

Doesn’t it bother anyone else that a person wanting to visit our country legally with a legitimate reason (like Novak Djokovic), even if they agree to take routine COVID tests, are REFUSED entry to the United States because they aren’t vaccinated, when we are allowing millions of persons to …

As a citizen it is nice to know that our veterans are appreciated. Her (Joyce Smith letter to the editor) reference to the Republican Party and its attitude to our military is noted, that part (Kevin McCarthy et al) seemingly agree our military is secondary when it comes to medical assistance. 

As a 78-year-old product of California public education, and former teacher, I‘d like to make a case for emphasizing historical relativism (trying to avoid current controversial buzzwords here!) in classroom instruction throughout all grade levels. I am promulgating this approach as I reflec…

 The Appeal-Democrat rightfully and fully congratulated all those Beale personnel past and present who have performed so unselfishly on behalf of the American people and our allies. It was also good to see our local service members were part of our worldwide military bases.

Aah, an election must be in the offing. First we had someone accusing the AD of being too liberal and not printing conservative viewpoints and now the Chairman of the Sutter County Republican Committee, Lloyd Leighton, once again raising the specter of Critical Race Theory (CRT) being taught…

Lloyd Leighton, with whom I attended Holy Angels when run by the Sisters of Notre Dame, writes an excellent letter (“American history editorial twisted the truth,” published on Aug. 24) with which I generally agree. However, at Holy Angels we were taught that we were responsible for the tort…

The purpose of government is to secure and protect the rights of its citizens. It is to protect the people against loss of life, liberty, and the unlawful seizure of property. 

Mr. Fruhling says Mr. Berkheimer “leaps to the questionable conclusion that America’s founding as a Christian nation is a “myth.” I prefer to believe our nation is one of righteous God fearing folk (regardless of religion preference) and they are the foundation of our country. 

Over the last few months I have noted the significant positive contributions Robert Summa, Appeal-Democrat editor, has made reporting on community activities. The quality and thoroughness of his local government and social activity coverage is commendable and so much better than we have had …

The article in today's paper (“Human West Nile Virus infection confirmed in Butte County” on Aug. 5) may have led some readers to believe that a human case of West Nile Virus was confirmed in the Tierra Buena area several weeks ago. 

If you get a call from someone saying they are from Medicare, it is a scam. They claim that your Medicare Card is no longer good and they will send you another one along with a knee brace, back brace and cancer test to mail back in, and even more; they even give you the number of the fraudul…

Yesterday (Wednesday) on the front page was an article about Cotton Rosser that didn’t make any sense. She started writing it in the 1st person and then quoting articles and didn’t even mention his current wife of 44 years. Today (Thursday) there was an article about the Lindhurst shooting s…

I agree with Trevor Allen regarding Sutter County printing out a full page color flier needing money. If they budget, manage to run it better and quit cutting fire department, police and road maintenance cut back other expenses like buying Kmart shopping center.

I would echo Mr. Trevor Allen’s letter of July 27th. A similar flier was sent out when they asked for approval of Operation and Maintenance taxes for the levy system. Of course in that instance they manipulated the manner in which the vote would be taken. Instead of one-person-one vote it wa…

I read a front page article in today’s paper “Hundreds Attend Rosser’s Celebration of Life” with abject astonishment and total disbelief. It would appear The Appeal Democrat condones the current catchphrase “fake news” by blindly re-printing submitted articles without first checking the info…

Supreme court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was recently escorted out of Morton’s DC Steakhouse while attempting to dine. Protesters had gathered outside the restaurant to harass Justice Kavanaugh. Morton’s condemned the disruption saying, “Honorable Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh and all of our …

Is “Choice” an inalienable right or is it subject to limits like everything else in life? It certainly is at the foundation of our daily waking hours. The day is nothing but a never ending series of choices or decisions. Whether you choose to get up out of your chair and go into the living r…

Everyone keeps talking about all of the poor women who won't be able to have abortions now that the Supreme Court has overturned Roe vs. Wade. What about the innocent children who are not allowed to live because of someone's irresponsibility? That child deserves the right to live. There are …

A majority of the Supreme Court agree that since abortion rights are not mentioned in the Constitution, Roe vs. Wade in is not valid. Okay. ”A well regulated militia” are the first four words in the second amendment, and when gun rights are mentioned, those four words, which ARE in the Const…

Today’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, which has been settled law for 50 years, is a disaster. It is a disaster for the women who will be forced to turn to dangerous and illegal providers. It is also a disaster for the Court, which has shredded 250 years of legitimacy and embraced a new a…

Don’t we have any kind of police force in Marysville? In the past 6 months traffic issues are terrible, I’m talking about extremely loud vehicles. They sound like they have no exhaust system at all. They race up and down my neighborhood at all hours of the day and night. I’ve lived here my e…

You have an opinion, that's great, but to have a theory there has to be an honest effort to understand the other side. Trying to understand the other side is hard, so we regurgitate politics.

Another witch hunt by the leftists lawyers currently in power! Headlines in today’s, June 11 ’22, Appeal Democrat: “Jan 6 committee to zero in on Trump’s alleged culpability in riot.” The two-year witch hunt to prove President Trump’s collusion with the Russians failed, so now our sadly comi…
