On Heschel school



The March 18 editorial, related article and cartoon regarding the Heschel school misrepresented a few facts.

Lights out



We received a notice from Southern California Edison notifying us of the possibility of a power outage between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on March 29. What insensitive clods.
