Recently, before the really bad rains came and caused tons of new potholes on the streets in Surfside, the roads were graded by local resident Dave Nelson. Thank you, Dave, for your efforts and concerns for our community, and to the many other people who have taken the initiative to grade the roads in the past, paying for or donating the labor and grading machine to get the work done. We all benefit immensely.
Don’t miss Beachnuts Theatre Company and Amigos de la Educación’s production of “Scrooge,” Nov. 24-26 at the Tamarindo Diria amphitheater (see story on Page W8).
