Please Fix The Streets


Dear Editor,

It would be our dream come true if Magnolia Street would be fixed and be under construction. One reason why is because other roads are not bumpy, cracked and just a hot mess. Another reason is because it’s a school street and it is so bumpy and cracked if you are doing your hair, make up or just doing something random you can fall in a crack and your car could break down, you could pop your tire, if you are driving and you hit a bump and you could possibly hit and possibly damage an irrigation pipe. Finally if you are driving on it at night it could cause a crash by hitting a bump. Please grant our wish by fixing the road, not for the sake of us, but for the sake of people’s safety in town.

Zwahlen Is Right For Congress


Dear Editor,

From working 40 years as an emergency room nurse, Congressional candidate Sue Zwahlen has a solid understanding of our healthcare system and how to make it work. Key among Sue’s priorities is to improve the Affordable Care Act and bring down costs, starting with reducing drug costs and increasing consumers’ options. She will fight for more funding for substance abuse treatment for all, and mental health coverage for teens. Our seniors can count on Sue to be a leader in the effort to change “Medicare for All” from a slogan to a reality, pushing for more research on how to create a single payer system that makes sense. Sue needs our support on June 5. Let’s send Sue to Washington D.C. and put her experience to work for us.

Enjoying Art Show Success


Dear Editor,

The Dorothy Indelicato Thirtieth Annual Fine Art Show was very successful. Over 80 fine art pieces from the almost 170 entries received were displayed for our visitors to enjoy. Saturday’s award ceremony was attended by most of the artists. Hors d’oeuvres and wine were leisurely consumed with lots of conversation and sharing of ideas.

The funds awarded as well as art sales will help many artists continue their passion of providing art for many to share. It was very rewarding to see the artists and wine customers enjoying conversations that included both wine and art.

Many people visited throughout the month expressly to view the art and to vote for the covered Visitors’ Choice Award. This year’s winner was The Sentinel by Frank Norton.

The media coverage that you and your staff gave to the event helped a great deal in bringing people to our annual “art gallery.”

Thank you so much for helping us to support the art community.
