Cheers and Jeers, Aug. 19

Cheers to Kurt Grimmer and the Peninsula Athletic Association for the generous donation of surplus soccer equipment to the children in Coatzingo, Mexico. Christmas came early for the needy children of this village.

Jeers to those in this city that make disparaging statements on social media that continue to divide the community. True leaders unite, not divide. A refresher course in the Golden Rule is needed for some if we are to have an expectation of working together.

Cheers to the engineer who designed the parking lot pavement for the new Carl’s Jr. I noticed that they employed a ‘pervious concrete’ that allows rainwater to filter back into the ground rather than add to the gutter and sewer runoff. Nice going.
