Robert Valenzuela: Do you know what ‘community’ means?

November 29, 2013 

Tony Bennett might have left his heart in San Francisco, but the Merced College Community Services is planning to leave cash.

According to the Sun-Star, “Shopping trip to SF offered by Merced College” (Around Town, Page A2, Nov. 23) the Merced College Community Services is sponsoring a Christmas shopping trip to San Francisco. Next time the Merced College Community Services needs money, I hope they don’t ask local merchants, but rather turn to San Francisco taxpayers.

Thankfully, I don’t hold grudges and will donate to the Merced College Community Services. I’ll donate a dictionary as apparently they don’t know the meaning of the word “community” even though they put it in their title.
