California should make recycling centers more accessible

In response to The Tribune’s editorial support expressed on the Opinion page Jan. 8 (“Raising a glass to SLO’s proposed plastic-bottle ban”), I noticed the editor was quick to cite that only 41 percent of the plastic bottles purchased in the past two years were recycled. Has The Tribune done any investigation into the lack of sufficient California redemption recycling centers currently available to the public in San Luis Obispo County to redeem any of their recyclable beverage containers? Locations are dropping like flies, resulting in further drives, long lines and ridiculous wait times for consumers to get back their CRV. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out why beverage containers are now ending up in the landfill.

The Tribune can do better than Matthew Hoy

OK, that’s it. I’m compelled to write. With the many young, thoughtful, talented conservative writers who must exist, why give Matthew Hoy’s vapid, ranting mind a regular column? He’s entitled to his opinions, but surely The Tribune can do much better. Get rid of him.

SLO Christmas Dinner for the Homeless was a great a success

The 2016 Christmas Dinner for the Homeless was the perfect venue to culminate a challenging year on a positive note. Our guests were served a decadent feast in a beautifully decorated hall while a live band entertained them. Once they had relaxed and could eat no more, they received winter clothing care packages containing new sleeping bags,sweatshirts, jackets, rain ponchos, socks, underwear and toiletries. The children were saddled with gifts.

Ignoring climate change will hurt our environment and economy

As Ray Weymann reminds us in “What happened to Donald Trump’s ‘open mind’ on climate change?” (Dec. 21), NASA is one of America’s most trusted institutions. One of its missions is an irreplaceable Earth science program, excelling in capturing and interpreting its own satellite data required for fine-tuning weather and climate models against actual observations.
