Saturday's Letters to the Editor

Misplaced priorities

EDITOR: Priorities, hmm. Should Santa Rosa spend more than $13 million to reconfigure Old Courthouse Square, or should we use the money for parks, streets, schools, senior services, homeless shelters, the fire and police departments, Roseland annexation, etc.?

Making downtown resemble a battle zone during this long project-in-stages would be a catastrophe for businesses.

Please, let us be practical and fix what we already have. We need to care for and maintain our wonderful city, not start a costly project with little value to our quality of life.

We already have a water feature at the Prince Memorial Greenway that’s not being used, so building an over-sized one at Courthouse Square doesn’t make sense.

GOP talking points

EDITOR: Thanks to Thomas F. Feeney (“Democrats and welfare,” Monday) for his elucidation on the latest Republican talking points.

The current immigration tragedy is really a Democrat conspiracy to get more Democratic votes (from children, no less) by increasing the number of people “depending on the government,” all for the purpose of ruining the United States.
