Letters from the editor:
Over 20 years ago I opened the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store on Forest Avenue in Pacific Grove; both to provide residents with quality second-hand goods, and to raise St. Vincent de PaulSt. Vincent de Paulmoney for the poor. For 20 years I ran the store, rounded up volunteers and solicited donations. Recently, however, the Board removed me as they felt I had been rude to a few customers, a position I don’t agree with.
Here I was in 2010 at the Holiday Parade Of Lights, waiting to get video of my children in the parade . . when Mr. Schenk walks in front of me and proceeds to yap it up. That’s rude, I say.
