Before the year gets any older, it’s time to hear again from the readers of this column.
I receive emails primarily from readers who live in Los Banos, but since this column is posted online, I also receive letters from people who live out of town.
I’m looking forward to seeing new people Tuesday when we begin another session at 2 p.m. at the Los Banos Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 1826 Center St. What’s nice about the class is that there’s no cost and no obligation to write or read stories. Some people come just to listen to the stories of others.
Those who do write stories say their families appreciate knowing more about the lives of their parents or grandparents – in written form, which will be part of the family legacy for generations to come.
So far, in Los Banos, there isn’t an organized way to do this. I hope in the near future some agency or organization will make this happen.
It’s good to hear there are other tired grandparents out there. Our son has time with his 3-year-old daughter every other weekend. We help him with these visits, which give us a chance to see our granddaughter, but by the end of those weekends we are exhausted!
Then you had the audacity to suggest we should raise the speed limit. This would only increase the speed of the unsafe drivers out there. Speed limits are not randomly set, but are put there by some very experienced people.
