Thank you so much for your help with covering the story on my reading program and book drive ("Books! One teen's gift to the young," Jan. 6). I sincerely appreciate your help in letting the community know about them both.
Through my work at Open Heart Kitchen I have also decided to distribute books this summer through their sack lunch program. The sack lunch program has several distribution sites in the Tri-Valley and it will be another way to get books into the hands of children who don't have access to books in their homes.
Thank you for your effort and commitment to helping these children learn to read.
Wants proof of health
I received Assemblywoman Mary Hayashi's notice of a February "Scam Prevention" meeting at the Pleasanton Senior Center in February. This will be an opportune time to explain to her constituents the "brain tumor" which reportedly affected her behavior and judgment. Perhaps she can assure us it doesn't affect her service and voting in the Assembly, or her driving on the California roadways.
It might help us sympathize with her situation if she could bring medical evidence of this malady and the treatment plan and list of prescriptions she's taking.
