‘I appreciate his kindness’

Dear Editor, 

On Monday, Oct. 31, my husband and I were with a friend in the park for a meeting. We went to the picnic tables first and since it was noisy, went on to the pavilion. The problem was I left my phone with my driver’s license and two credit cards, one from the ministry and one that was my own. I did not realize this until about an hour or longer when we left the pavilion and that’s when I discovered that I didn’t have my phone. We went looking all over and could not find my phone. I was really concerned, more about my driver’s license and credit cards than about my phone and went and cancelled my cards and driver’s license just in case they were stolen. However, somewhere around 5:30 to 6 p.m., a gentleman drove up in our drive and as my husband went out to check who it was, I looked out the door and saw him with my phone.

Letters to Editor

Dear Editor, 

The teachers and staff of Yorktown Junior High would like to thank the Yorktown ISD School Board and Mr. Gee for the wonderful meal that was served to us on Monday, October 24. It would not have been possible except for the wonderful cooks, Dr. Garza and Mr. Lynn, our two principals. They grilled burgers and fixed french fries for all YISD staff. Thank you to the board members who graciously served us and for the wonderful desserts. Yorktown ISD Board is starting the year off right. Thank you.

Never Lose Hope Walk

Dear Editor, 

The family of Shirley Saenz would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came out to support our 1st Annual Never Lose Hope Walk. Our goal was to raise awareness to those affected by depression/suicide. It is still an everyday struggle for so many and our hopes are to continue to help those in need. Your generosity- through donations of silent auction items, monetary donations, purchasing t-shirts and/or bracelets, and the countless people who gave up their time to help and to walk- we can’t tell you how much we appreciate your support. This event was a success because of all the people of our community and the surrounding areas. We hope to continue to raise awareness, partner with other agencies, and carry forward in making this a yearly event in honor of everyone affected by this silent disease.

‘Talk about an injustice’

Dear Editor, 

In writing this, I hope and pray that it is interpreted in the way it should be. A lesson for anyone who is put in a compromising position, yet still be sought after for trying to help. A few months ago a relative of mine and I were pulled over at a certain station in Yorktown. I was asked to do a little job for them that would take away my problem  which I am still trying to figure out. We had gone to fuel up another person’s vehicle. When I pulled into the station, an officer turns on his lights. I gave him my DL. He asked to search vehicle, I said “Sure, it’s not my vehicle. “This person had things that shouldn’t have been in there. We get arrested.
