To the Editor:
I am happy to report that Fillmore is getting back to the day when we could BARTER, HORSE TRADE, SHAKE HANDS AND YOUR WORD WAS YOUR BOND. I was pleasantly surprised when I realized I had something to trade. Grad Nite Live was given an electric farm car with a flat bed. Just what the people at the Railway Co. needed, so we traded and Grad Nite Live got a 20ft Cargo Container that we needed so badly. No money was exchanged just a hand shake and a sincere thank you. Grad Nite Live has one container now and still awaiting the replacement of a 20ft and a 40ft container that the City Council directed the City Manager to obtain back in December, 2010. Thank you Mr. Wilkinson and Company.
Mrs. Chaney
Grad Nite Live

[Editor’s Note: An except from the February 8th, 2011 council meeting concerning the promised containers, “Also, the continuing problem between the City, City Council and the non-profit Grad-Night-Live was again addressed at Tuesday’s Council Meeting. Mayor Gayle Washburn softened the city’s commitment to provide two storage containers to GNL which was made at the December 14, 2010 meeting. At that meeting, Council Member Jamey Brooks said that the city was going to extra effort to help GNL, “Even to the point with Rigo, I guess they’re looking for containers.” Council Member Patti Walker said, “We have located two cargo containers.” And City Manager Yvonne Quiring said, “…and we’re gonna find two containers for her [Chaney] because Rigo has already taken care of that.” So the question remains, will the city honor its commitment to provide two containers for GNL?” So where are the containers?]
