Was my garage sale a threat?

Dear Editor,

I am concerned over the removal of signs that I put up advertising my garage sale, including the sign on my own street. In place of my sign by the Farmers Market I found someone else's sign in the exact same place. Someone took down all my signs, which I discovered when I went to retrieve mine.

Have our morals, respect and competition gotten to the point that anything goes as long as it is self-serving? Was I a threat to the other garage sale? I think it is time to sit back and rethink our motives and remember to "live and let live." What a shame that our society has gotten to this point.

Bravo to 'Chicago'

Dear Editor,

I want to congratulate the Pacific Coast Repertory Theatre on an outstanding production of "Chicago" at the Firehouse Arts Center. A group of us attended the sold out Saturday night show and it was very well done. The actors were superb and the direction and choreography were amazing.

The performance capped off a wonderful Saturday, which included Farmers Market, window shopping up and down main street, and dinner at Oasis before the show. We're truly lucky to have such a great downtown and our wonderful new theater.

We are very much looking forward to attending more of these events in the future. Bravo, Pacific Rep!

Jennifer Pearce
