Scouts earns Merit Badge
Dear Editor,
I'm writing a report on the Lamorinda newspaper for my Boy Scouts Merit Badge. I'm supposed to say a thing I enjoy about the paper. I think it was a great idea to have the winning team of soccer or basketball in the newspaper. It is very fun to see your name and picture in the paper and show your family.

Chandler Peatross

Dear Editor,
For a Boy Scout requirement I am supposed to write to you and express my opinion or share information with you. I would like to first
express my opinion. I love all the work you guys do over there. I sometimes go out and grab the newspaper at my house and I always like looking at the front page. I would like to share information with you but I don't currently have anything very important. When I do get some information I'll make sure you're the first to hear.

Charlie Peacock

What about other large vehicles on El Toyonal?
Dear Editor,
Why now? I've been here 40 years. They use small busses on upper El Toyonal. What about garbage trucks, or UPS trucks? What about fire trucks?
Our city needs to seek an exemption or we withhold tax money. For Uber or Lyft.
