Thank you for response to light display

Another Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year holiday season is over, along with Max and Charlene Casperson’s Christmas and patriotic light display. Twin View Lane residents helped decorate the entire length of the eight-mile-long lane. Plus surrounding horse and cow pastures were crammed with interesting light displays.

The thanks Max and Charlene received for this effort was seeing the response given by the general public that came to visit the light display during the thirty-day 2017 year-end holiday season. After deducting the normal traffic of Twin View Lane residents, over 1,100 vehicles — including four or five buses — visited the light display. Many were crammed full with shiny-eyed children.

Max uses three people per vehicle to estimate the number of people visiting. This year, well over three thousand adults and children drove through the light display. The Casperson family and the Twin View Lane residents wish everyone, everywhere a happy and prosperous new year.

Thank you for helping disabled veterans

My husband and I want to give a special thanks to Bob Wagner and Don Edison for their help and delivery of a wheel chair to our home after my husband had a major stroke.

Both Bob Wagner and Don Edison, on their time, gathered and collected — and need — handicapped items for disabled veterans. Bob is very talented in repairing and fixing wheelchairs, other motorized items and scooters. Thanks for having such a caring heart.

We also want to thank the Twin Falls chapter of the Disabled American Veterans. Special thanks to Commander Steve Gilbert and Don and Sharon Pennington for making sure my husband had a lift chair after major, major surgery.

Boys and Girls Club is a valuable community asset

I want to state my gratitude for the Boys and Girls Club of Magic Valley. This agency is so much more than a child-care facility. My daughter is raising her 7-year-old son as a single working mom who is also in nursing school. I provide what assistance I can. He started attending there when he was 5; and I credit his stability, in part, to the program they have provided.

I taught school in the Twin Falls School District for 32 years and now work for Alliance Family Services. These experiences have supplied unlimited opportunities to observe quality programs in related fields.

I continue to be impressed with the organization and planning for age-appropriate activities and methods of relating to children. I believe this provides for the growth of present and future responsible citizens. The emotional and social development takes a high priority in their programming, as well as respecting individual interests and values.

What I appreciate most is the on-going daily collaboration from staff to parent (or grandparent). This provides for follow-up at home and assists with continuity, to support positive progress in all areas.

Thanks again so very much to the Boys and Girls Club of Magic Valley!
