On May 10, the Huntington Beach Independent carried an article ("Proposal uproots passion" on a magnificent eucalyptus tree at 1751 Main St. This tree is a true treasure that predates the city. The city has no business cutting it down. It should be preserved like the treasure it is.
Fond memories of Mr. Atteberry
Your article on Jim Atteberry brought back wonderful memories of the many years that I taught fifth grade at Eader Elementary School in the classroom next to his ("An unlikely spotlight for teacher," City Lights, May 3). He was a truly inspiring teacher and human being for whom I have the utmost respect and affection. He not only enriched the lives of his students, but of mine, too. Many thanks for a read that brought tears to my eyes!
