Maltby’s should stay in Los Altos

Agreed. Maltby’s should not go.

This friendly establishment is definitely a regular “go to” place for many people to meet, eat, watch sports, hang out and chat with the friendly staff and other patrons and friends.

Sunday Friends offers thanks for support

All of us at Sunday Friends extend our heartfelt appreciation to all who participated in this year’s Holiday Shopping Spree event. We are so grateful.

Expanded to two dates at two Target locations in November, our event raised $36,000, which was immediately turned into holiday gifts for moms, dads and children by teams of enthusiastic shoppers of all ages, 700 in all.

Ticket motorists for U-turns on Main Street

As I was walking downtown on Main Street recently, something came to me out of the blue. The town of Los Altos is missing out on a huge revenue stream. I realized that if all the cars – there were three in less than a half-hour – that make U-turns in the middle of Main Street were ticketed, we might be able to build that new community center everyone is talking about.

Just think, if we posted a policeman on a bicycle downtown and he nabbed every one of these lawbreakers and gave them a $300 ticket, the money would start piling up. Where else can you make $900 in a half-hour?

Parade sure beats Black Friday

I hurried to downtown Los Altos on Black Friday to beat the crowds. At 7 a.m., 10 percent of the parking places were taken. Sunday night, I parked 1 mile from downtown and enjoyed our magnificent parade.

The annual parade has grown immensely in the past 30 years. This peaceful, joyous event marking religious and secular holidays is unbelievable.

New council should review parking decisions

I think the recent Los Altos City Council approval of a license plate reader should be reviewed again now that there are two new councilmembers (“LA City Council approves stricter downtown parking measures,” Nov. 5). To have two lame ducks help stick taxpayers with a $110,000 item of dubious value begs the question: Why are we buying this?

I would be interested to know if there is supposed to be any warning given to offenders on the first overtime ticket, or if the cops will just drive around every few minutes and ring up another offense to generate more income for the city.

Foothill thanks Rotary for support for vets

The Foothill College Veterans Resource Center’s open house Oct. 30 was spectacularly successful, thanks to the spirit and dedication of the Rotary Club of Los Altos.

Foothill College cares deeply for our veterans and could not provide the range and quality of services we do without the generosity of Rotarians and the Los Altos community. Their contributions have provided book vouchers, smartpens, laptops for loan and scholarships that have often been the tipping point for veterans remaining in school and successfully completing their educational objectives.
