Letters to the Editor: Bailouts, SB 35, travel ban

Bailouts should serve people, communities

During this worldwide pandemic, it is more important than ever to celebrate May Day – or International Workers’ Day – and to advocate for all workers.


Letters to the Editor: Off-gassing, reach codes

Off-gassing poses health, safety concerns

I am a 13-year-old student here in Los Altos. I am very concerned about our future and the future of my kids.

Letters to the Editor: CHAC, Draeger's, leaf blowers

CHAC ready for the ‘next wave’

It’s clear that mental health challenges will be the next wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. The stress of uncertainty, health concerns, income loss and social isolation are taking a toll on mental health that will only be amplified in coming months.

At the Community Health Awareness Council (CHAC), we will continue to serve Los Altos and surrounding cities by providing critical counseling services via telehealth to individuals and families who are struggling to cope. I want to acknowledge those who have made this possible.
