Letters to Editor

Editor: I’m a resident of Pasadena, staunch nature lover and avid Sierra Nevada backpacker. My morning began with reading a cover story in Pasadena Weekly about fellow residents Frank and Joan Randall, and their $50 million family donation to create the conservancy’s largest preserve in Cali…

Editor: Higher prices are the result of corporate greed and their decision to take advantage of their power in an uncompetitive market while workers, farmers, ranchers and our economy suffer.

Editor: If Amy Coney Barrett means what she said, she should resign from the Supreme Court. Justice Barrett said justices should be “hyper-vigilant to make sure they’re not letting personal biases creep into their decisions.” The Supreme Court’s five Republican justices, in the dark of night, decided to uphold a flagrantly unconstitutional assault on women’s […]

On March 25, The Break Free from Plastic Pollution Act of 2021 was officially introduced to Congress. On Jan. 1, the city of Pasadena will begin allowing […]

Editor: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) threatened, “Nobody serving in this chamber can even begin to imagine what a completely scorched Earth Senate would look like.” Without the filibuster, he predicted the Senate would be “a 100-car pile-up where nothing moves.” After McConnell’s efforts to obstruct any and all legislation from passing the U.S. […]
