Avenue of Heroes Biography: Major General Joseph H. Pendleton

By Oceanside Veteran Writing Group, Gail Chatfield

Community Voices: Save the Study

Honorable Mayor Tanaka and Council Members;

I do want to make a couple of comments since I cannot attend the Council Meeting tomorrow.

I know that you will be very impressed with the numbers of citizens who show up on Tuesday because a small but mighty group of ladies who are long time residents and who love to" pack the chambers" have been hard at work. They have been the driving force behind making it appear that a "vast majority" do not want the study and/or a…
