Faith in Lake Elsinore improvements


Friday, May 16th, 2014
Issue 20, Volume 18.


Greetings. I am a seventeen-year-old senior at Chaparral High School, and I have just recently read the article "Main Street Lake Elsinore Gets Community-Sized Makeover." In addition to the fantastic news itself, I must say that the article was beautifully written.

The language used was incredibly vivid, with the wording like "sprucing up" and "a dose of good neighboring." It very much helped to emphasize just how wonderful this news was. I very rarely will go to Lake Elsinore, pretty much for the reason that this story states. I have always found it incredibly dangerous and I have felt uncomfortable even driving through it with my windows rolled up. In fact, I believe that a less optimistic comment on this very article stated that it was "a failed city with atrocious leadership." To a degree, this is not necessarily untrue. About two years ago, I was in a musical that was performed at Lakeside High School, so I pretty much had no choice but to drive up to Lake Elsinore and be there late Advertisement

at night, and then, worst of all, drive back to Temecula. Naturally, I felt very unsafe and insecure. As a result, I was absolutely thrilled to hear the news that people are going to an effort to do something about this. It seemed before that people had stopped caring, and had given up. But to read an article that over 600 volunteers came to tackle these projects for the city. I do have faith in this project, even though some do not. I believe that all that needs to happen is for good people to come together and strive for a common goal, which I think has begun to happen now with this new union of volunteers. Again, in addition to the wonderful news that Lake Elsinore has the potential of getting better, I believe that the article was beautifully and optimistically written. I simply wanted to express my appreciation for the article, and I look forward to more news of Lake Elsinore’s new development in the months to

come.

All that needs to be done is send all the tweakers to the pinta. Then the city would be alright.
