Voice: Ricker should watch what he says about at or around the Salton Sea

May 26, 2002

Mr. Phillip Ricker of Holtville, do you have poor vision or just plain bad manners as to insult those of us who live by the Salton Sea in such a way.

I am surprised you would write such a letter and more surprised that the I.V. Press would print it.

This is my home and I am proud of it. Kitchen and dining area 9 by 18 feet. Living room 14 by 20 feet, one 11 by 14 foot bedroom, one 9 by 11 1/2 foot bedroom, one 11 1/2 by 20 bedroom, one 11 by 20 1/2 foot enclosed paneled patio with paneling and 26 linear feet of windows 5 feet high. From the windows in the patio to the ground is sandstone.

Mr. Ricker, you can see my house from Highway 86. It is almost straight back from the tire shop as you enter Salton City. Next time you come our way you are welcome to drive over and look at it. If I am home I will be happy to show you through.

Oh yes, I also have a 20 by 25 foot garage, utility and washroom combination.

I hope your vision improves, Mr. Ricker, and the Press reads letters to themselves and cut out such remarks as contained in yours. What an insult.
