To the editor:

The article about protesting and boycotting the proposed shopping center makes me laugh. This is history repeated from 25 years ago when Pay ‘n Save and Safeway built the shopping center on High School Road.

The protestors complained about how Winslow Way would dry up, they are taking too many trees down, there is not enough business for the shopping center. So they tried a boycott. You can see how that worked, you can hardly find a parking spot, and Winslow Way is doing just fine.

As for complaining about the trees coming down, how many trees came down when they started building their houses? I guess some people like to complain just to complain.
