Pay $30.00 to listen to the Mayor tell you what a wonderful job she and the others are doing for all you Danville folks...You are so lucky to have this wonderful town council.

I am so pleased we in beautiful Alamo voted No City.

Danville...I feel for you folks...not because of the town council and how they have you so loving them...but because all of you are asleep at the wheel and can't see the trees from the forest.

Good afternoon,

I just wanted to take a moment to clarify something about the article regarding the State of the Town.

The event is actually a networking luncheon hosted by the Danville Area Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by Mechanics Bank. Each year the Mayor of Danville is invited to attend one of the meetings and give a State of the Town address, discussing issues and projects occurring here in Danville.

The $30 fee goes to the Chamber to help them defray the cost of the luncheon at Crow Canyon Country Club.

Hope this helps. If anyone has questions about the event or about the State of the Town address, feel free to contact me.

Have a great day!
Thanks
Geoff.

Dear Jessica and Geoff,

USAmerica, in its states and national governments, does not charge for public presentation of our national, state and regional status of government over the last year. It should be a reality that Ms. Stepper's presentation should be available for free on the Danville website.

This is especially important when town fiscal planning runs far behind the realities of income from industry, retail, commercial and residential sources. Associates as funding sources to Danville's economic development have warned town (city) officials of the lack of aggressive growth plans to foster survival of Danville's government.

Shall we have an actual view of Danville's survival during the next 3-4 years of recessive pressure on home values and retail/commercial profitability?

Geoff is fully capable and expert in this response so let him guide you, Jessica.

Let's thank Geoff for stepping forward in commentary,

Hal Bailey

And let us corridor neighbors agree that Hal has served us well over the years and he is on his way to a well deserved respite from the challenges of managing the burden of living here. Valley Springs has a place for he and Julia to reside in a welcoming environment where they can avidly read Valley Pioneer past issues and watch Lawrence Welk....Thank You Hal and Julia for your contributions and we wish you well.....and as Roy Rodgers used to say..."meanwhile back at the ranch"....we will continue to make this town great.

Dear Jessica,

As editor, you will review commentary in this exchange and determine suitability to terms of use. To help with that task, let's look at a recommendation from one of EMCEB's sponsored commentators, "Posted by psmacintosh, a resident of the Danville neighborhood, on Feb 21, 2011 at 10:17 am, I second jrm's comment (nice to know that we can agree on some things). I think readers should limit their comments to only responding to the ideas, concepts and values presented by the actual content of an article."

Now, as you review the exchange, who violated this concept?

Was it my question, "Shall we have an actual view of Danville's survival during the next 3-4 years of recessive pressure on home values and retail/commercial profitability?" Or was it comments such as, "let us corridor neighbors agree that Hal has served us well over the years and he is on his way to a well deserved respite from the challenges of managing the burden of living here. Valley Springs has a place for he and Julia to reside in a welcoming environment where they can avidly read Valley Pioneer past issues and watch Lawrence Welk."

The question seems to answer itself! And who is Roy Rodgers anyway?

Smile,
