    Letters to the Editor, April 8

    I am an 88-year-old senior citizen who crosses the Narrows Bridge daily to visit my husband who is living in an adult family care home in Tacoma.

    Some of us have had careers in the food and beverage industry. We bring our own expertise to this discussion of the plans for the Millville area. Regarding Mr. Moist's ongoing dismissal of citizen concerns (Gateway, Jan. 28), I believe it is time to place a spotlight on his plans.
