A Picture Says a 1,000 Words

Editor, They say that a picture says a thousand words. I think that the photos on the fire in Bluebird Canyon (“House Saved From Brush Fire,” March 16 edition) says volumes and that does not include the comment on how the firemen had to fight terrain and vegetation (eucalyptus...

A Start on Reducing Oil Dependence
