Enjoys Street Faire but same acts is 'getting old'

Editor, Ceres Courier,

I would like to thank the Street Faire organizers for another great job.

I always have out-of-town friends and family show up. It's a great time to hang out with them while they are visiting us in town. The only drawback is the music entertainment. We keep seeing the same bands over and over. It's starting to be like Ceres Concerts in the Park. We enjoy classic rock music but the same bands every year is getting old. Other than that, keep up the good work.

Tony Ureno,

American people let Congress get away with it

Editor, Ceres Courier,

The members of the U.S. House of Representatives have been working in Washington on 41 of the first 127 days of this year. They are planning to be in session half of the remaining weeks. How long would you keep your job if you worked like that? Even when they show up they fail to address the biggest problems facing the country. It would take a 50 percent tax increase in order to balance the so called budget yet they are avoiding the problem while the debt grows by 1200 billion dollars per year.

The real problem is you and I let them get away with it. They work for us and we pay them $174,000 per year to do it. Make a commitment to write or call your representative once a week and express your views. See how they respond and let that be your guide to voting this November.

Irving B. Welchons III
