Tire-ing effort acknowledged

Letter to the Editor from Bob Bastian of Fruitvale

After many months of travelling the road into and out of Trail, I feel it’s time to acknowledge the signatures of the individual who has left his marks on the highway.

His two-tired black rubber is left on the roads for all to see. It’s obviously a very tire-ing task so this person must go to bed at night happy, but spent. And thinking of spent, I imagine the cost of all those marks must add up.

Oh, well, he’s getting ready for re-tire-ment. Good for him.

Bob Bastian
