Letter: Sponge Bob missing

Editor, The Friday Flyer: I came home Thursday, December 6, to find that my inflatable Sponge Bob Christmas decoration had been stolen from my front yard. Sponge Bob has been a part of my family Christmas for five years and is a favorite of my 9-year-old grandson. He is approximately 48 in. tall, sitting on a present and wearing a Santa hat.  I am asking anyone that suddenly has him visiting t…

Letter: Keep citizens safe

Editor, The Friday Flyer: I read last week that the City will be broke some time in 2016. The easy way out is to raise our taxes, which is most likely why this article was published by the City. My recent experience in contacting our million dollar plus, 22 hours a day, seven day a week cop was a lesson in patience. I called the Canyon Lake Police Department around 7 a.m. and I got a recording …

I smiled nonstop for over two hours as Santa intently …

Letter: Developing Goetz Hill

Editor, The Friday Flyer: Recently the City Manager presented a five-year financial projection to the City Council. It said our City will be broke by 2015. Now it’s up to the Council to develop a plan to either save the City or dissolve it. One unpopular subject for additional taxable income in the report was Goetz Hill. I have a few questions. Can it be responsibly developed? Will it generate…

Letter: Out on a limb.

Editor, The Friday Flyer: I just wanted to write to you and let you know that despite the misconceptions about Director Neigel, he literally went out on a limb about a year ago to resolve disputes between neighbors in this community. On that day, Larry single-handedly trimmed 11 trees, because some property owners would not take responsibility to trim their own trees. This is above and beyond wha…

Letter: Thief took paperwork

Editor, The Friday Flyer: I don't know how but somebody got into my house. And yet this person only walked away with my safe. This person has taken all my money, which is not easy to come by since I am a single mother and work hard to support my son. But I guess he/she need the money more then I do.  However, along with the money was some very important documents and I am pleading for t…
