Sunday's Letters to the Editor

<b>English-only ballots</b>

EDITOR: I cannot believe that anyone would object to any law that would stop voter fraud. It is also unreasonable to expect our voter information to be printed in Spanish, Chinese or any language other than English. Citizens are the only ones who are able to vote, and they should be able to speak the language.

People who have lived here for five, 10 or more years have no excuse not to have mastered enough of the language to read and communicate. To be a naturalized citizen you have to be able to speak the language and have some knowledge of how the U.S. government works. If this is no longer true, we have not helped the new citizens to truly be part of their new country.

My opinion is based on the great honor to be a naturalized citizen of this country.

R.G. NEACE

Santa Rosa

<b>Mall parking</b>

EDITOR: Rather than insult the patrons who shop at the Santa Rosa Plaza, a better solution would be to sell parking permits to those who work outside the mall.

They would park in their designated parking spaces, farthest away from the entrances to the mall, thereby freeing up space for shoppers and not charging the very people who keep the shops in business.
