Mister Fuller: I hope that this is our last outing because the Church organ has finally arrived at St. Catherine’s and we will be busy listening to God’s music as we pray and contemplate things other than your personal struggle to build a gym for us. Now back to the facts of your letter. Many […]

Letter to the Editor: Parish and school both part of Martinez Catholic history

Mr. Fuller, in your recent letter to the editor, you attempt to separate the St Catherine Parish School from the St. Catherine Parish. They are both part of the same Body of Christ. They are both under the supervision of the Bishop of Oakland and governed through the Chancery office in Oakland. The Parish School […]

Mr. Fuller, In your recent letter to the editor (last paragraph) you say, “I am truly sorry that I was not able to get this project done.” John, that project was never yours. It was never your job to get the project done. It was our job! That’s how the Catholic Church is suppose to […]

Mayor Schroeder was back at it again last Wednesday night, figuring out how he can get two marijuana ordinances passed which will repeal our existing municipal prohibitions against the commercial sale, manufacturing and distribution of marijuana in Martinez. He has been trying to do so since 2008. He is on the cusp of victory, but […]

Martinez is getting seduced into the marijuana business. It’s most apparent motive is that we need the “money”. As in taxes, fees and whatever. It’s almost as if panic has set in at city hall and we the people must comply with this emergency. The emergency is not our fault. This is the city council’s […]

Letter to the Editor: Keep dispensaries out of downtown Martinez

For ten years Martinez has been struggling with marijuana dispensaries. Wasting valuable time in futile efforts to locate the perfect area in Martinez for such a thing. Areas where there are no schools, no hospitals, no churches, no youth centers or places of business which do not want such things. It’s a hard find because […]

Out along Alhambra Valley Road, on the west side just past John Swett school, there is a considerable build-up of wild dry grass. In years gone past this fire danger got remedied by cows grazing on the various ranches. That apparently is no longer permitted so we have a serious danger that needs to be […]

Letter to the Editor: Marijuana dispensaries

The Martinez city council is acting as if there is no mutual understandings between themselves and others such as myself with regard to permitting the opening of more marijuana dispensaries than the one say they had to open earlier this year due to failed zoning protections. I hope this is not another gun to the […]
