No, I think the press is exaggerating. These things happen.

Avoid flat lining

Maria Hooper - Atascadero

In response to Roberta Fonzi’s concern about the word Atascadero being “hard to read” in the newly suggested logo (“Welcome to the Heart of the Central Coast,” Feb. 14), I ask, “Where were you when the Chamber of Commerce put up the freeway welcome sign as you approach the city from the north?”

You can only read “Atascadero” if you know what it’s supposed to say.

If Atascadero is the “Heart of the Central Coast,” I suggest you have bypass surgery.
