Letters to the editor

Just a note to tell you how much I enjoy your writing style and sense of humor!

I laughed all the way through your CC&Rs story (“CC&Rs ban wild animals, airplanes and drilling,” April 26 View.)

Your subtitles were all hilarious, but the one that really made me laugh was the “Siegfried and Roy Clause!” So funny … and very clever writing.

Metropolitan Police Department’s
1st Tuesday Open House a success

I attended our Convention Center Area Command Metropolitan Police Department lst Tuesday Community Open House (in May) for the first time. It was well-attended and very informative.

There were different topics: crime in our area, in particular stolen cars, police cadets and ongoing police training, especially fire arms proficiency, and an open session for specific neighborhood problems, questions and comments. Plus, there was free pizza, soda, coffee and homemade cookies. In short, it was a great event.

These monthly meetings are a great benefit to everyone in our community, especially our older and senior citizens. Accordingly, I encourage everyone to attend at least one meeting to see for themselves.

It’s 7 to 8 p.m. the first Tuesday of each month at the Convention Center Area Command, 750 Sierra Vista Drive. The phone number is 828-6478. This way you’ll be able to see for yourselves how good, informative and helpful these Community Open House meetings are for everyone. (Area commands across the valley participate in the program. Visit lvmpd.com to find the location of the area command nearest your home.)

I commend and praise our police department, the command officer in charge and each police officer.

They’re doing a great job. I salute them. Also, I praise the civilian police volunteers, men and women who in addition to giving of their time and effort assisting our police also serve and help in these meetings to ensure everything runs smoothly. They’re the salt of the earth!
