    Dear Editor, Habitat Forever wants to thank the community for its interest and support of our work. We also want to encourage the public to get involved in our newest campaign.

The County’s own GIS map shows no cultivation site on this heavily forested parcel. We talked to Steven Santos, Development...

    Letters to the editor, Dec. 27

    Dear Editor, I want to thank this community, my family, and my friends, not only for keeping me alive for five years, but also for making that time precious and full.
