Here are some readers’ recent thoughts on the issues:

Art Dioli:

Each time I turn onto Playmor Terrace, I try to straddle my car-wide section of the road which has sunk at least two inches for fear a potential sink hole. Each time it rains, a large amount of water hovers over the spot and every day that the association waters their grounds, a large amount rest there as well. I have visions of the headlines reading “SINK HOLE” and a problem of safety to one or more.

Frances O’Neill Zimmerman:

How much do we spend per kid in our public schools? The U.S. Census reported recently on spending in grades pre-K-12 for fiscal year 2009-10.

The national average spent was $10,615 per pupil. California spent $9375 per pupil, ranking 40th among 50 states. San Diego Unified spent $9,669 per pupil. Readers may rely on these numbers in contrast with inflated figures published uncorrected in this journal last winter.
