Letter to the Editor, keeping restaurants afloat

Do your part to keep restaurants afloat

In response to the coronavirus threat, many of us are self-isolating or practicing social distancing, which is essentially the same thing.

Among other things, that means we aren’t eating out as much as we normally would. This is placing an enormous strain on the restaurant industry. I was at Aldo Los Altos picking up a to-go order Friday, March 13, at about 7 p.m. On a typical Friday the place would have been bustling. But there was only one table occupied, and only one other to-go order on the counter besides mine. Obviously, this is not sustainable.

Dog owners make peace after park incident

The Town Crier published an article March 4 about the death of our dog, Mike (“Owners of dog killed in Lincoln Park find responsible party”). It is now out of date, so in the interest of community and healing, I write to share the following update.

The dog’s owner wrote a letter expressing responsibility, an apology and heartfelt sadness, and offered an explanation of her dog’s character that led to Mike’s death. One day later she made the decision to euthanize her dog.
