LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Freeland needs a new name

  • Feb 25, 2015 at 2:00PM

Editor, I propose that the name of Freeland be changed to Freedom. After all, the land is no longer free. There is a Freedom, Calif., a small town near Watsonville, but seems like there is room for another.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | “Other Desert Cities” was great
