Letters to the editor: Fire prevention plan, bocce ball

Comprehensive fire prevention plan needed

As the unfortunate events of the last weeks have shown us, we are far from immune to the risk of wildfire.

Letters to the editor: City decisions, reach codes, masks

City decisions are an ‘embarrassment’

It’s not bad enough that we have the plague of COVID-19 to deal with and the sky filled with ash from fires all around us, but now I have to read in the Aug. 19 Town Crier that the Parks and Rec Commission can’t decide whether to accept a $50,000 contribution to build a bocce ball court at Grant Park. Even worse, they can’t even decide to say that they can’t decide! Amazing!

Letters to the editor: Wearing masks, a tribute to Peter Duxbury

Wear a mask or face a fine

I wish to comment on Fran Rappaport’s Aug. 5 letter about masks in Los Altos (“Los Altos needs mask mandate”). It is truly unfortunate that it will take some definitive action by our city council to finally get the residents of Los Altos to wear a mask when outside.
