We have the best government that money can buy. Mark Twain

This was said about a hundred years ago. We still have not solved this problem. Can it be solved or should we live with it?


MONTEBELLO EVENTS

Many events. There is now a page at the “My Montebello” Web site for institution and organization monthly and quarterly calendars, http://www.mymontebello.com/calendars.htm . Have a calendar? Let me know.  And if you have a recurring monthly event, like the Montebello High School swap meet every second Saturday of the month, I will include that on the calendar page.

Hat's off to the Lion's Club. Last month I attended the Lion's free vision screening. Well organized with a large number of people having come to have their eyes checked.

A three-finger salute to Boy Scout Troop 330.  412 cans were collected through Scouting for Food, in order to assist those in need of food.
