To the editor:

A special thanks to the tractor owners and operators for their progress on weed control on the east side of Highway 33 from Gustine to Patterson.

I don’t think Russian and purple thistle are anybody’s favorite weeds.

The work done also eliminates a major fire concern.

I thought at one time there was an agency that controlled this issue with sprays and discs.

Again, thank you for your efforts. They are not unnoticed.
