• The Lord is by Anthony's side

Be strong Shannon. The Lord is by Anthony's side always. We pray that he make a full recovery and that he is able to be back home soon.

• CVS keeps track of personal information

Do you know that when you shop at the CVS stores they can keep track of everything that you buy and any employee in the store or any CVS store can find out exactly what you buy and when you buy it. So you have no privacy! How about let's all get together and make a class-action suit because I feel that no one should be able to know everything that you buy and if they do it should only be the corporate office and just certain people - not everybody! If you don't have good employees they can tell everybody that they know exactly what you buy and when you buy it. How would you like that?

• Hanline should quit now and save money

Every school district in California has been looking at budget cuts. Now Ceres may be requiring employes to take pay cuts. I've been wondering why in these very difficult times Ceres has been employing two superintendents for the last two years. Most disttricts may have a one-month overlap when hiring a new superintendent but not Ceres. It took two years. What a waste of money.

I think it's time Hanline retire and save the district five months of salary. The board hired Siegel for the job - let him do it. He doesn't need his master puppeteer any more.

• Horses really are the best therapy

Regarding your article, "Therapy in a horse ride," (Nov. 18) it is great to see others with disabilities riding. I had back surgery August 2008 in which they fused my lower back together and put rods and screws. The doctor finally let me ride my horse again a year later on the condition I only walk, no trotting or running. The horse I have came from the racetrack and I rescued him from starvation; he has been the best therapy for me. My doctor still has mixed feelings about me riding. I wish more of this information was passed along to doctors.

• Thanks for the publicity of ill grandson

I would like to thank you for writing and publishing the article regarding the plight of my grandson, Anthony Harris. Your attention to his difficult situation is appreciated.

• Failing to move over can be costly

I wanted to let my neighbors know about the California "move over law." My friend got a ticket on coming back from Wal-Mart. A police car (turned out it was two police cars) was on the side of the road giving a ticket to someone else. My friend slowed down to pass but did not move into the other lane. The second police car immediately pulled him over and gave him a ticket. I had never heard of the law. It is a fairly new law that states if any emergency vehicle is on the side of the road, if you are able, you are to move into the far lane. The cost of the ticket was $754, with three points on your license and a mandatory court appearance.

Please let everyone you know that drives about this new law. It is true. It states that except two states, all the other US states enacted similar kind of law.
