Community By Alexandra Herrera, Reporter Friday, June 2, 2023

      At Optimist Park on May 16, officials dedicated new pickleball courts (with the pickleball court lines drawn within the tennis court boundaries) to former Vice Mayor Jeffrey Rodriguez. Rodriguez resisted the honor which Councilman Tony Fernandez had presented to the council in November with an impromptu motion.
