Santa Rosa, CA. ~ I am in appreciation for all the people out there with the patience they have had during this big mess we are all in. I am thankful for the peo- ple who have hung in there with the pa- per. There are some who are no longer with us because of various exten- uating circum- stances. But, we also have to change to grow. And, I could really use a hair- cut at some point! LOL!! I am no person to really


give advice or suggest a better way to do things, but I do know that I will survive this crisis in a productive manner. As you can see, our paper is down to 24 pages. But, the content is even stronger than ever. The reason we are

cautious about what is happening. I see things getting better but I know It will take time. I went to get a piece of something I needed for BBQing at Home Depot and there was no line of 200 peo- ple waiting to get in. Much different from the first days of May. The stores seem to have very few lines anymore. This is good news! As the days have
