Letter to the Editor

Nearly 100 years ago, in Jacobson v. Massachusetts, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 7-2 that vaccine mandates were constitutional. Justice John Marshall Harlan explained that “Real liberty for all could not exist under the operation of a principle which recognizes the right of each individual person to use his own [liberty in a way that results in injury to others].”

Finding unity amidst adversity

Finding unity amidst adversity

Marking this twentieth 9/11 anniversary, we are mindful of its horrors and sustained by the memory of its heroes, especially first responders who put service ahead of self. Today, in a time of so many divisive forces, we are stronger when we remember what binds us. We draw inspiration from the way our Nation — all of us, as citizens and neighbors — came together after the tragedy on 9/11. That is the spirit evident yesterday when the City of San Marcos and the San Marcos Fire Department held a solemn remembrance, followed by the first responders’ memorial stair climb.

Learning: A lifelong purpose

The start of the school year is always an exciting time and serves as a reminder that we all must continue learning to be healthy individuals, productive workers, informed citizens, and supportive family members and friends. As our kids return to school, adult learners can also return to class by taking advantage of the variety of courses offered through LifeLong Learning-San Marcos (LLL-smtx).
