This is in response to Francis Adams’ letter criticizing President Obama for spending the holidays with his family in Hawaii (“Is Obama doing his job from Hawaii?” Jan. 1). I agree! Who does he think he is, going to warm Hawaii (where he grew up) for his vacation?! Camp David is so much more “fun” sounding, especially in winter. It must be even moreso to his wife and young daughters. It really makes me sick. Imagine, it’s Christmas morning, you’re opening presents with your family (or maybe sleeping in, since it’s only 7 a.m.)

The Glendale Beeline is testing a marquee system very much like the MTA that shows the date and time of day and stop requested. This system also announces the upcoming stops, and greets new passengers when the door is opened. Unlike the MTA’s, the Beeline voice is female, and a bit more pleasant. So, now the Beeline fares are to be raised (“Beeline costs may transfer,” Oct. 1). Why? Are the new fares to pay for the marquee system? It is unnecessary; the drivers are very pleasant, usually greet you as you come on the bus, and call out the stops.

Their involvement in the tournament represents a return to a onetime Falcons tradition that has been dormant for a few years.

With economy woes and stressful times still ahead, what better way to relax than a trip to Hawaii? That’s the message brought by the Marriott Resorts Hawaii’s Spirit of Aloha bus that stopped by Montrose Travel on Jan. 21. The bus, it’s sides painted in tropical colors and a friendly Hawaiian face beckoning those weary mainlanders to its shores, was a huge invitation for a relaxing vacation. The bus tour was part of a West Coast campaign that began in San Diego a week earlier and will end in Seattle the first week of February.
