    Having read the article on my phone regarding the NVUSD's decision to sue the state Office of Education, I felt a need to express some observations. 

      We were very pleased to see that Congressman Mike Thompson has co-sponsored the Federal Carbon Dioxide Removal Leadership Act (FCDRLA). This far-sighted, pioneering and vital legislation will create a sustainable, long-term market for the removal and durable storage of legacy carbon dioxide through both natural and technological means.

        In addition, a 170-key hotel will be built. Where are the "affordable" houses for all the workers that Napa is required by the state to provide? Wouldn't this be a perfect opportunity to incorporate these into the new development? Why aren't there more available here? Perhaps the developers don't want affordable housing in the new hotel tourist area? Where are the planners in this?

          In a letter to the editor, a writer makes the assertion that the one block closing of Main Street from Third to Second is only for the benefit of the restaurants located in that block. I believe this is an inaccurate conclusion.

            When is enough truly enough? How many more of our taxpayer dollars are to be wasted on attorney fees and litigation instead of being appropriately spent on our children?

              The holiday season comes with family gatherings, social time with friends, and office parties. These joyful events can lead to life-altering consequences, like drunken driving.

              When I retired I wanted to join a choir but not a church choir, so I enrolled at Napa Valley College. Had I not enrolled at our college, I would never have known the hardships some of the students suffer in order to get an education. Along the way, I joined the NVC Foundation and worked on the annual scholarship awards. 

              I am increasingly alarmed at Napa County’s lack of effective response to the climate emergency. We do not have a Climate Action Plan or action on the state-mandated Groundwater Sustainability Plan. For several years we have drawn down more water in the subbasin aquifer than can be restored. In 2021, Governor Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency in over 40 counties due to the drought. Napa County is one of these counties.

              I know it is standard practice for developers to ask for the moon and then “settle” for a football field (which was their intended target all along), but the project proposed by Wayne O’Connell for the area across from the Oxbow marketplace, even if reduced by half, has three fatal flaws: parking, parking, and parking. Oh, and one more: parking.

              It’s incumbent upon me and Community Health Initiative to recognize State Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry, who continues to do great work to better serve our local community by sponsoring and supporting legislation that improves the health of children, families, and seniors.

              I enjoy getting this reporting, but why is it always these two conferences every week? Is the sports editor aware that there are more conferences including a Power Five conference that includes four California schools?

              I appreciate that the author was well-versed in the contributions of André, clearly one of the most important figures in California wine. And I can understand how the author would want to contrast the values that André promoted versus current day wine production and marketing. However, I was really hoping to hear more about the tasting. Surely there were other wines that were opened.
