Wasn't there a newsworthy event at the Fairgrounds Saturday??

You'd never know it if you depended on Pleasanton Weakly for local news.

Nope. The communist leaning media would rather report on a parade led by union nincompoops than on patriotic citizens ringing in freedom with hot dogs and hats.

Typical left wing reporting. PW depends on the local govt. for its funding.

I thought we had coverage of the event and am checking why it's not online.

Thank you, Gina. It seems the tonga dancing event never gets covered by this paper, and I'm glad to see we're about to get some local recognition. Sometimes it feels like this town doesn't cherish its diverse cultural makeup, focusing instead on a the mostly white residents instead of showing the broader perspective. Looking forward to seeing your coverage of our event show up later today!
