Letters: Curious about early settlers

Dear Editor,

Today I received my first copy of your newspaper, and enjoyed it thoroughly. My friends often discuss subjects they read about in the Weekly but until today I have not been able to join in the conversation because my name has not been on your list. I am happy to now be a paid subscriber.

Here's hoping that sometime soon you will run a series of vignettes (nothing too heavy) about our early landowners (Amador, Bernal, Castro, Livermore, etc.) whose names I see everywhere in the area but about whom I wish I knew more. Like so many of my friends and neighbors, I am enthusiastic about learning some local history. How about it?

Keep up the good work.

Sharry Bautista
