Praise, but where’s the football?

Just finished reading the Mission Times Courier and enjoy its contents. All good and delightful. Good to read something that talks good about our neighborhoods. Get too much adverse publicity and political controversy with other publications!

Is it prudent to publish the Patrick Henry High School’s 2017 football schedule? You might have published it and I missed it; if so I apologize.

Thanks for your contribution.

—Neil Vann, Allied Gardens

[Editor’s Note: Because we do not have a sports section, we do not usually publish the sports schedules for local school teams. We do have a regular column submitted by Patrick Henry High School and in that column there are some sports items. There is also the season schedule at the following website:]

Stop HR38 CCR

I want to state opposition regarding a dangerous gun bill that will be coming up for a vote in the House soon, HR38 Concealed Carry Reciprocity (CCR).  This bill would essentially nullify all of California’s hard-won gun laws.

CCR does NOT create a national standard for who can carry guns in public in the country. In fact, it would gut our country’s gun laws, override state laws, and make the weakest link the law of the land. Many states do not have training or permitting requirements to carry a gun in public and, under CCR, gun owners would be allowed to carry their guns from state to state, no questions asked.

CCR would force all 50 states — including those like CA with strong, sensible gun safety laws — to allow violent criminals, domestic abusers, and convicted stalkers to carry hidden, loaded guns in public.

I ask you to call and urge your Congress members to VOTE NO on CCR. We cannot allow this dangerous bill to affect the safety of our citizens!
