Good 9/11 coverage
I was happy to see front page coverage of the interfaith memorial of the 9/11 events (“A pledge to unite,” Sept. 12).
With all the anti-Muslim sentiment in our nation, which seemed to occupy the headlines in television media recently, it is refreshing to see that our newspaper has favorably covered a more positive topic.
Instead of Muslims burning the American flag, we see them saluting it. Instead of Christians saying they want to burn the Quran, we see them joining with Muslims and Jews to pray for unity and peace.
If only CNN would give these types of events similar coverage, millions of people would have a better understanding of what people of true faith really want for our world!

The real terrorists?
The “never-ending war on terror” began nine years ago, on Sept. 11, 2001.
Since then, thousands of United States military and private contractors have lost their lives, as well as hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of Iraqis and Afghanis.
The 9/11 wars continue, now moving into Pakistan and possibly Iran, despite the collapsing United States economy and the fact that a majority of Americans are against the wars.
Last year, a team of international scientists did chemical and microscopic analyses of the dust from the debris clouds from New York on 9/11.
Their findings were published in the peer-reviewed paper titled, “Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe.” This is evidence that explosives were used in a controlled demolition of the three skyscrapers on 9/11.
The war on terror goes on, even though in New York on 9/11, World Trade Center building 7, a 47-story skyscraper “collapsed” in 6.5 seconds at 5:20 p.m. after not being struck by a plane. Oh yeah, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission was headquartered in that building.
Is it possible the real terrorists reside in a penthouse near Wall Street and not in a cave on the other side of the world?
Here we go again.
It’s the start of another fine year of high school sports. My challenge to The Tribune is to provide equal coverage (column space, photos, etc.) to all the county high schools.
You have already started what we have seen for years, major coverage of Arroyo Grande High School teams with little space or comment given to other schools. There are star athletes at each high school who deserve to see their names and photos in the paper.
Templeton High School has the most sought after quarterback in the county, yet your coverage of the Templeton game was given two inches of very small print on page seven.
I implore you to provide equal coverage to all of the deserving athletes in the county this year and back off of your bias toward reporting Arroyo Grande High School.
