Can't sneak one by her To the editor:
I really dislike complaining old ladies, but, when I see "snuck" used instead of sneaked [which occurs frequently] in your articles it is like fingernails being scratched on a blackboard to me. I remember standing at a blackboard at Guilford School and Miss Ciansiolla [?] forcing me to write 100 times, "the word is sneaked, not snuck." That may have changed in this day, but that lesson is burned into my memory. Have a good day.

Strokes of pride
To the editor: I just got done reading the letter to the editor in Sunday's paper (Aug. 7) and had to add a comment of my own. I'm part of the Trinity Playhouse, which is a block down the street from the Steel Trolley, and believe me when we first painted our building we had some negative feedback on the color also. I think Lisbon is a beautiful town, with the new library addition, the courthouse and village squares. Why not add to that beauty by cleaning up the buildings with a fresh coat of paint? The Steel Trolley has done a wonderful service by updating the buildings surrounding it. The colors are beautiful and welcoming to visitors. Hopefully the owners of other buildings will do the same, by cleaning up and restoring their buildings.

Serving up a thank you
To the editor: Members of the Salem Preservation Society want to thank the Bob Evans organization for providing us with a fund-raising day to benefit the rebuilding and restoring of the Reilly Stadium Wall. Mr. Strebel, general manager, and the staff were most accommodating, gracious and helpful.
There aren't enough thank yous for the many who came to Bob Evans to support the efforts to have this outstanding landmark become a source of community pride again. Thank you, also, to the many who contributed their time, assisted in any way and gave financial support so this event and the wall project would be a success.
