Where are the inexpensive activities for the families with kids that live here? Why not keep an actual park or two and not fill it all with corporate buildings that make a few people/families richer? It won't stop until the Ants rise up, there's more of us than there are of them! Our neighborhoods are important to us. Make up your mind. What do you want? Who will help us and how do we get her/him elected in this short time? Game on.

Lucy D. Barker is such a fine writer but who is she really? I looked for her on Facebook and it seems she doesn't exist. My friend at the Imperial Beach Nature Center that was interviewed by "her" for a story "she" wrote claims he only talked to a man. If "Lucy" is trans-gender, then congrats to the Reader for using her excellent stories.
