    Still planting trees

    It seems like every day Fresno gets more bad news about our water supply. We hear an expert say that California has only one year’s supply on hand and our current groundwater usage is unsustainable.

    Words touched this heart

    Bob Marcotte, your Valley Voices piece, “The sad, silly, single man who orders the same dinner every Friday night” (March 14) reached my heart.
