Voice: Calexico women missing from edition

September 06, 2001

I always look forward to reading the Imperial Valley Press and following the local beat, but I must say that I along with other Calexicans were a bit disappointed with your "Women of the Imperial Valley" special edition.

Though the Andy Warhol artwork is to be applauded, the Sunday special missed the meaning of who our Valley women leaders are. Not one of the ladies represented my home town of Calexico.

Was that missed or was Heber as far south as one goes? Calexico has thousands of women volunteers and civic groups, elementary schools named after women, dedicated women educators and principals and business leaders. I can't believe the special was published without looking at that fact.

Nonetheless, we'll continue reading the Imperial Valley Press and looking forward to your Calexico coverage.

Once a Bulldog, always a Bulldog.
