Letters to the Editor

To the editor:
In response to Tim Imhoff's letter in the Nov 27
Gazette issue: He considers it a problem that a foreign language is spoken in many Fillmore homes. He also comments on parents sending children to kindergarten when the child can't speak English.
Perhaps Tim has forgotten about the many waves of immigrants who arrived in this country over the past two hundred years speaking languages other than English. My grandparents immigrated from Poland, and didn't speak English when they arrived here. My mother, who was born in the United States, started kindergarten speaking only Polish. Should her parents have kept her home until she somehow picked up English on the street?
Let's have some tolerance for our Hispanic neighbors, and treat them as we would want to be treated.
