We stayed in our present home, because we could afford to live here. I was a teacher foe 38 years and our income was limited. We also raised four children and the schools were good and it was still like living in a small town.
That has all changed. The traffic has gotten like a small Los Angeles, the number of flights have increased, the planes are nosier (even activate car alarms on our street).
Our age and health no longer give us the option to move, so we will continue to tolerate the inconvenience.
72-hour limits must stay in effect
This is in response to the May 17 question in the Burbank Leader about the 72-hour limit on RV parking. If this is removed, just think how many RVs will appear on the streets permanently.
The people that are now storing their RVs will put them on the streets rather than pay for storage. Our city streets will end up being choked with RVs. We will look like a trailer park. I have always believed that if I purchased something that I would have to have a place to store it. I am totally against removing this ordinance. We have a beautiful city, lets keep it that way.
Time to get tough on the employers
Jesse Byers, in his hard-line letter ("Argument is a matter of law," May 6-7) about illegal immigration, didn't mention that a large number of illegal immigrants are hired by business people who like the idea of hardworking, cheap labor. Until fines and punishment are levied against people who hire them in this country, no progress will be made with the problem of illegal immigration. It's that simple.
