Vote YES on library annexation
I am writing this letter to express my thoughts about the
Sunnyside library. We live in the county, so I can't vote on this. If I could,
I would vote yes to annex with the Yakima Regional Library.
I go to the Sunnyside library on a regular basis, and I love
to go. The staff members are very nice. It is a great joy to go to the
It would sadden me greatly if it closed!
According to the information I have read, people who live in
the county have been paying the library levy rate since 2003. I can't remember
voting on it. If we who live in the county have been paying (I am happy to pay
to have the library), why haven't the people in the city been paying?
I urge the people in the city of Sunnyside to vote a huge

There are many reasons why the library is important to me.
There are almost as many reasons as there are books in the library.
One reason is that they have lots of books on different
topics. There are books on animals, fairy tales, people and history.
Another reason is their summer reading program. In this
program you get little prizes like bookmarks, fun bags and stickers.
Finally, they don't just have books. They have videos and
books on tape.
Hence, I think the library is important to me because they
have lots of books, a good summer reading program and lots more.

Security liaison will be missed
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Fidel
Partida, security liaison for the Sunnyside School District, for his
outstanding commitment to the safety and welfare of the students, staff and
parents at Harrison Middle School.
Mr. Partida has been instrumental in curbing gang activity,
violence and drugs at Harrison Middle School. He is one of Sunnyside's finest
role models for our youths.
Recently, Mr. Partida was transferred to Outlook Elementary
School. I know Mr. Partida will be an asset to the Outlook community and will
be instrumental in curtailing the growing concerns of gang activity in Outlook.
Mr. Partida, your presence will truly be missed by students,
staff and parents at Harrison Middle School. Outlook, you are gaining one of
