Letter: U.S. must assist colleges in educating workers

U.S. must assist colleges in educating workers College is overpriced. I am concerned with the economic status of current and future university students. Recent generations (i.e., those post-World War II) have increasingly been encouraged by their parents and society to go to college and earn an education. However, a college education — much like many other crucial resources — isn’t provided to Americans by their government. As such, as many as 44.7 million Americans have student loan debt, according to a 2018 report by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The total amount of student loan debt is $1.56 trillion as of the end of 2018 and it isn’t getting any better for future college students.

Behind enemy lines: Seahawks vs. 49ers, Five questions with opposing beat writer

SANTA CLARA — Five questions with Gregg Bell, who covers the Seattle Seahawks for the Tacoma News Tribune, about Monday night’s matchup against the 49ers at Levi’s Stadium: Question: With a 22-to-1 touchdown-to-interception ratio and another fourth-quarter comeback, why is Russell Wilson having his most efficient season to date? Much of it is Wilson’s supreme accuracy on all types of throws: on the run, off balance, from the pocket, while pressured. But also, Brian Schottenheimer is using Wilson so much more effectively and maximizing what he does best far more in his second year as Seattle’s offensive coordinator. Schottenheimer has advanced the passing game by taking advantage of Wilson’s best plays and adding variations. For example, one of the Seahawks’ favorite plays is Wilson play action and a half roll-out to the right, with Lockett lined up wide right running across the field on a deep cross or flag route to the left sideline. They’ve been hitting that for big plays the last two years. This season, Schottenheimer has at least twice given that same look, then had rookie DK Metcalf and his 4.3 speed…

NFL picks, Week 10: Home sweet home for Raiders, 49ers

Long story short, Week 10 of the NFL season begins and ends under the Bay Area lights, and look for the Raiders and 49ers to win on their respective prime-time stage in this week’s picks: Raiders 23, Chargers 17: To paraphrase the Chargers owner this week: they’re not going to London and they’re not going anywhere, other than to Oakland to lose in their final visit. Line: Raiders +1 49ers 26, Seahawks 16: Jimmy Garoppolo becomes only the second quarterback to lead a team to a 9-0 start after it went.250 or worse previous season. The other: ex-49er Alex Smith, who led the 2013 Chiefs to 9-0, then 2-5, then a wild-card exit. Line: 49ers -6 Lions 27. Bears 26: Last year in Week 10, Mitchell Trubisky put up 355 yards, 3 TDs, 0 INTs in a 34-22 home win over Detroit. This isn’t 2018. Line: Lions +2 1/2 Ravens 33, Bengals 16: This gives Baltimore a 7-2 record, matching the best starts in franchise history. The Bengals A.D. (After Dalton) stay winless, as Ryan Finley is the sixth rookie QB to start in the…

Letter: Pay attention to what Burlingame High School student says

Follow student’s advice to ‘protect what we have’ Re: “Burlingame teen winner of a $400,000 international science video competition” (Mercurynews.com, Nov. 3): Pay attention to what Burlingame High School student Jeffery Chen, 17, has to say. After founding his school’s environmental science club, which proposed the district replace its power with renewable energy, Chen’s neutrino video won the $250,000 international Breakthrough Junior Challenge scholarship. In considering what to study in college, Chen said, “There’s always been a conflict for me between, do I want to focus on astrophysics and astronomy …, or do I want to focus on what’s here. … For now, I’m mostly focused on environmental science. If we can’t protect what we have here, it won’t matter.” Related Articles Letter: U.S. must assist colleges in educating workers Letter: A long line of entities to blame for fires and power outages Letter: Trump wants to scare future whistleblowers Letter: Scientists have predicted worsening fire seasons for years Letter: Change California’s model and change the future If enough young people have that attitude, the future of our planet’s climate will be in good hands.…

100 years ago: Drove eighteen hundred miles to Red Bluff

The local grammar school will be increased to the extent of three new pupils next Monday. They are all Hansons. F. V. Hanson and family of seven children arrived in Red Bluff Tuesday by way of covered wagon after driving 1,800 miles. They started from the northwest part of Washington, drove into Idaho, back into Oregon and then south into California. Arriving in Red Bluff Hanson gave the town the once-over, pronounced it good indeed, rented a house and will remain here this winter. Three of his children will enter school at once. — Nov. 7, 1919

California jail escapees have been captured

Two murder suspects who escaped from a Northern California jail by cutting a hole in a ceiling over the weekend have been captured, authorities said Wednesday. Santos Samuel Fonseca, 21, and Jonathan Salazar, 20, were arrested by US Customs and Border Protection, the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office said. Details about the arrests weren’t immediately available. The sheriff’s office said it would hold a news conference late Wednesday morning. Authorities reported Fonseca and Salazar missing from the Monterey County Adult Detention Facility on Sunday. The two inmates identified a blind spot in their housing unit and cut through the sheet rock and metal screen to make a 22-inch hole in the bathroom ceiling, Capt. John Thornburg, a sheriff’s office spokesman, told reporters Monday. They then climbed through the ceiling and came down through a hatch that leads to a back door, he said. It appears they kicked the back door open and left the jail on foot, Thornburg said. Employees were not involved in helping the men escape, Thornburg said. The men had been in custody since 2018, awaiting trial on unrelated murder charges and felony offenses, authorities…
