I would like to thank Al Sandrini for his Community Voices article Sept. 10. It was good to hear from him again! He probably doesn't remember me, but I was the administrative secretary at Bethany Services, aka The Bakersfield Homeless Center, when he was chairman of the Board of Directors.

He wrote the article with the same honesty and integrity with which he chaired the board. Thank you, Al, for putting things in perspective — as always. Keep it going!
