We appreciate your efforts, which probably prevented a lot more damage. Kids, if you get caught, we will press charges. Be warned! If you find it that much fun to pull out plants, we will introduce you to some weeds and you can go to it.

To the editor:

I am a sophomore at Franklin and Marshall College pursuing medicine. I had the pleasure of meeting Lisa McClay at the Farmer’s Market two weeks ago by accident, though I have known for some time that she is campaigning for mayor of our city.

To the editor:

At its last meeting, city council passed a resolution setting rules for public comment at its meetings. Because this is an important and controversial vote we believe it appropriate to share with taxpayers our opinion about council’s decision.
