Veterans should have paraded down Main Street

Editor:

I was just wondering why Santa Claus and rodeo clowns are welcome to come down the middle of Main Street but the men and women who have made untold sacrifices for our country and this community have been relegated to the back alleys of our town for their parade. My sincere apologies to you veterans for the slap in the face by our city fathers.

Editorís note: The route along Montezuma Avenue was the first choice of parade organizers, who commend city staff for their support.
