I couldn’t agree with you more, Mr. Killingsworth. Idyllwild has to be heard and stand united.

I have the greatest respect and admiration for our brave firefighters. They have protected us here for a long time.

Why try to fix something that isn’t broken?

As for the same people who always have to spew poison and have their name in the paper, why don’t they watch our crew the next time they fight a large fire? They will see then how our wonderful men put their lives on the line for everybody.

Idyllwild is a very beautiful and spiritual mountain community. My heart sings when I see the results of my giving, not taking. I know firsthand what hatred and ill will can do and has done to the world.

I am never silent and will help and stand up to be counted.

I love Idyllwild and love America. I will be forever grateful for all the blessings America has given me.

I am proud of you, Mr. Killingsworth, for speaking up.

We are Idyllwild and want our own Idyllwild Fire Protection District to stay.
