  • April 20: Letters to the editor

    The feel of Del Mar Sheriff or no Sheriff, that is the question! Will Del Mar survive this? Do we appreciate the “feel of Del Mar” under our Sheriff, or shall we become more of a police state and create our own Del Mar Police Force? This is a very important issue and the future “feel of Del Mar”...

    April 13: From the Del Mar Mayor: Del Mar Public Safety

    Del Mar takes pride in its public safety. We have our own lifeguard service which makes our beaches safe for residents and visitors. We have our own fire department, which responds quickly to emergencies. We even have a one-person police officer who patrols our beaches and parks; the Del Mar Ranger....

    Unicorns in Del Mar? Kudos to the City of Del Mar and the City Council for their transparency in posting the newly released feasibility study for a private police department on the City’s web site.

    Clean air and emissions standards When I moved to Southern California in 1971, automobile emissions were poisoning the air. A recently published photo of LA’s shrouded skyline in 1973 reminded me how grim it was as the brown fog crept closer and closer to San Diego County. Fortunately, the California...

    Climate change and science This letter was written on an iMac; emailed to the Del Mar Times. These everyday tools are the product of scientific research. Our TV’s, our cars, our homes have all been enhanced through scientific discovery. Science grows, delivers, and allows us to enjoy food of infinite...

    Double teaming Ms. Sutton Regarding the two letters sent in last week condemning Marsha Sutton’s weekly education column, I feel compelled to weigh in. “Careless” is the last word I would use to describe Ms. Sutton. While I may not always agree with her, I have always been impressed by how carefully...

  • March 9: Letters to the Editor

    Climate has always changed Thanks to Mark Peters for his recent letters discussing the inconsistency of climate change predictions and accuracy. The technique used by some to say “almost all scientists agree…” is called an appeal to authority, and is often used by proponents of a position to obscure...

    Beating Cheating High schools all across the world are filled with cheating, from the lowest ranking schools to the most prestigious ones. San Diego is not exempt from cheating. Students copy homework, post answers to tests, and even share answers during the test. The teachers are not the problem,...

    From the Del Mar Mayor: Crime in Del Mar

    I have two reasons for writing this article. First, Del Mar has always had a strong value of looking out for our neighbors. That is why we have such organizations as Del Mar Community Connections, Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT), and Neighborhood Watch. Also, one of my first responsibilities...

    Letter misleads readers about climate change Mark Peter spread falsehoods about the topic of human-caused climate change in his recent letter (“Climate change and the facts", 2/17/17). Take for example his canard that the “ice cap is increasing” at the South Pole. The reality is that, while the...

    Climate change and the facts I’d like to respond to the two letters featured regarding climate change. It does exist, but it’s not such a serious problem requiring a UN global carbon tax of trillions of dollars that will have little-to-no effect and destroy the economies of Africa. Valerie and...

Lane plan should be further analyzed Dear Mayor and City Council, Regarding the removal of the northbound traffic lane on Camino Del Mar from Carmel Valley Road to Del Mar Heights Road: I am concerned...

  • Feb. 2: Letters to the Editor

    Alternative energy sources outside of fossil fuels should be pursued I read with interest Mark Peter’s letter (Jan. 26 issue), “Climate change isn’t a serious problem,” as it provided another view on climate change. It seems to be irrelevant if climate change is happening or not since as a country...

    Why we voted No on Eric Dill as the San Dieguito Union High School District Superintendent We were asked to approve the hiring of Mr. Dill as our superintendent for the San Dieguito Union High School District. We voted No because we believe approval of him is premature. We were given the choice...

  • Letters to the Editor: Oct. 6 issue

    Increase safety, stop additional train noise pollution As a believer in the old adage “there are two sides to every story” I would like to present the flip side of the people complaining about getting ticketed for trespassing on the railroad tracks in Del Mar. One point that hasn’t been raised...
