LETTERS: How about Olalla?

Reading a plugged letter page of Pentictonites’ unhappiness means mayor and council should try on a pair of listening ears.

The many squawking letters opposed to building waterslides in beautiful Skaha park is a welcome relief to this old groaner who can kick back and smile awhile.

Reading a plugged letter page of Pentictonites’ unhappiness with mayor and council that should try on a pair of listening ears — that appeared to work well for MP Dan Albas.

All letter writers are welcome to join the Seagull Club where you may squawk and cry if you want to about your sad case of elected officials, but seldom do one-track, arrogant minds listen to the people whom put them there.

My message to your mayor and council is to do the right thing or get off the pot.  There are many tracts of land more suitable to build a waterslide (check out the valley of beautiful Olalla).

Mayor and council,  listen to the united voice, pay attention to the message from these letter writers. Then I can go back to rest and relaxation and wait for tomorrow and the next full letter page of seagulls squawking while political pigeons continue to fly overhead.

Perhaps a recording by Hank Williams senior “take these chains from my heart and set me free” may help?
