Compliments, Canary

By Beverly Scofield, Santa Maria

Compliments on your article ("Embrace the change," June 28). I'm no "canary," but I claim to be a "cockatiel." I am a dyed-in-the-wool progressive, though. At my age and present ability, I am pretty much just a petition signer and help out at the Democratic Club of Santa Maria Valley office, but I appreciate it when I hear like-minded voices. Thanks!

I especially liked what you said about all the corporate building out on Betteravia that did little to further housing needs. Maybe that's why it was necessary to put that huge sign that reads "House" on the old Enos ranch house–to remind the powers that be just what we really need.

Weekly Poll
Did the federal government shutdown impact you or your family?

Yes. We missed paychecks and had to make some tough decisions.
I don't work for the government, and it didn't impact me at all.
I don't have a government job, but I still missed out on important services.
I'm glad it happened. Who needs airport security anyway?
