Love prevents and defeats racist hate

EDITOR: Open letter to the El Dorado Hills community and beyond: Please don’t let it be too late. Please let me be on time.

The CSD needs to remember its mission

EDITOR: Often innocuous concerns like a foul ball at a Little League game seems limited to those for who it impacts, and that makes for a boring read.
