I would like to thank our hard working mayor for his persistent efforts to create a speed limit change for some of the streets in our town. And, a “thank you” to our city commissioners for approving a measure to help protect and keep our town safe for pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers. In 2006, 52 residents of El Paso Street and Avenue F signed a petition requesting a speed limit change.

Dear Gerry, The editorial, “Small Town”, submitted by Mrs. Bartlett and published in the August 12th edition, has inspired me to comment. I found it an interesting history lesson on Mason and hope she will take the time to write down more of her recollections.
