 I couldn't help but think that Julian felt under-appreciated in his later years. So, I just couldn't let the opportunity pass to share these remembrances of a good friend and an outstanding community servant.

Inclusion of special needs children should be a priority

 Regarding the article in the June 1, 1998 Valley View about the Headstart program in the Riverview School District, we would like to add a few comments. Our daughter is "the one in the wheelchair" referred to in the article. For the record, she is a special, smiling, eager-to-learn little girl, who happens to use a wheelchair.

Now you've done it, Denny Redman!

 Congratulations to Novelty Neighbors! And thanks, Denny Redman, for saying it so well.

Planning Commission appreciates work done by Joe Wallis

 We wish to thank him for his insights, the years of experience, generosity of spirit and good humor that saw us through many difficult issues. He always helped us meet the challenge with careful thought and planning.

 With all the negatives reported these days, it is extremely important that strong upstanding male and female role models are shown in our community.

Thanks to businesses who made donations to auction

 Businesses, families, staff and students helped make the Cottage Lake Elementary PTA Silent Auction a very successful fundraiser for Disaster Preparedness.
