Teed-off TEA’d: Where’s the coverage?

I don’t understand why the Sentinel does not report the activities of the Ramona TEA’d at the forum other than the advance notice of the monthly meeting submitted by Ramona TEA’d. It is not necessary to be a supporter of the tea party to report news.

Letters to editor: Mounted patrol, equal greeting, more

Appreciates mounted patrol It is a real pleasure to see the Mounted Patrol in the Kmart parking lot during the holiday season. The presence of the Mounted Patrol brings some piece of mind with their presence. Not only is it reassuring to know that another set of eyes is watching the parking lot and other [...]

Letter to the editor: Freedom of speech, one of our greatest freedoms

I consider myself to be a “Ramona old-timer,” as you say, and I am offended that you would insinuate that any of us in this wonderful town would be “fooled to think we are all illiterate rednecks from 50 years ago,” when most of us here in Ramona are very much aware of the current state of politics in America.

Letter to editor: Trailhead hosts appreciate warm reception

We would like to give out a big THANK YOU to the local community for the warm, caring reception, and outpouring of gratitude we have received since arriving here in Ramona to be the Cleveland National Forest’s Cedar Creek Trailhead hosts on Thornbush Road.

Letters to the editor

The town of Ramona is tired of becoming a dumping ground for solar projects.

We understand you need to build these, but why in residential and ag areas? There is PLENTY of flat land that is out of the line of sight of our residents. Build them there.

Letters to the editor

I hope this letter moves someone in Ramona, in the way it did to me, to help Ian find a home for the dogs he loves so much. If you have room in your heart this Christmas and room in your home, helping Ian will truly be a gift you will never regret.

Letter to editor: Hawk Watch to continue

Over two decades ago, I started the now world famous Ramona Hawk Watch. This because I wanted to preserve grasslands that birds of prey inhabit, which otherwise would have been destroyed for housing.

After seven years of escorting the public to “extreme bird watching,” the program was adopted by the Wildlife Research Institute, which operated the program for the next two decades. They were successful in saving the Ramona Grasslands Preserve.

Letters to the Editor

SDG&E electricity customers have probably read or heard that the utility has been granted an 11 percent rate increase by the PUC effective Sept. 1, 2013. What they may not know is that not all ratepayers are affected equally.

Instead of applying the 11 percent “across the board,” SDG&E is allowed or mandated to distribute the rate increases according to how much electricity a customer uses. The chart on SDG&E’s website at www.sdge.com/2013Rates shows the rate increases for various levels of consumption based on $ per month on a customer’s bill as well as kilowatt hours per month consumption.

Letter to editor: Epic All Class Reunion at Back of the Ranch

The Ramona High School Class of ‘83 would like to thank Ernie and Sherri of Back of the Ranch for hosting the RHS All Class Reunion. Everyone had a wonderful time. It was great to connect with all the graduates of RHS. Also we’d like to thank the neighbors and neighborhood around “Back of the [...]

Letter to editor: Avoiding Detroit’s mistakes

Detroit is the mattress bearing the stain left behind from the steamy amalgam which oozed during the incestuous drunken orgy with big business, labor and government.

Detroit, however, is not alone. Many cities in the U.S. are currently engaged in such orgies, though blinded by their own lustful addiction to bonds, taxes, regulations, and corporate cronyism taking place which will lead to predictably similar stains, smells and debts.
