Don’t be discouraged by a few people

Editor:

I was discouraged to read the letter from a reader about Escalante Days and the focus on the Hollywood Bar arson. I agree with the writer of that letter that the emphasis put on the Hollywood is overblown, but it is just a result of the influences of certain people who implemented the event.

I am proud that I call Dolores my home. On Escalante Days, the Rotary Club hosted the 14th annual bike race with 84 racers ó an event that encourages healthy living, and the funds are used for scholarships and other great things locally. Donít be discouraged by a few people ó this is a great community, and I did and will take my hat off to veterans and those who help make it a better place.

Cheer up!
