    Ron Aragon: Offer solutions for poverty

    I cannot believe that you would print a huge front-page headline (“Data show poverty rising,” Sept. 18) and especially highlight a man named Steve Mentz, an out-of-work plumber living on the streets! You offered him and millions of Americans just like Steve absolutely no solution to...

    Re “Moving ahead with seniors aid” (Page A1, Sept. 17): The story talks about the difficulties of facilitating Meals on Wheels and how much it costs and what has transpired with the “frozen meal delivery.” Instead of just hopelessly staring down the frail and unsupported...

    Ruth Oosting: Experience no excuse

    Re “It wasn’t Faul’s fault” (Letters, Sept.16): The mayor’s previous positions in the public sector and the many government organizations she belongs to do not mean she should continue as mayor of Atwater. She has been mayor and on the City Council for many years...
