And often — when information was tinged with suspicion or embellishment — misunderstanding and myths resulted, city leaders said.

I was so impressed with the news about the EPA Media project and how Nancy Brink is not only educating youth in media skills but involved in the students aspirations and difficulties of everyday life. Her encouragement of them should inspire us all.

Looking forward to more news and details of the EPA Media project and its progress as project but also to the human vignettes of its students.

Thank you Paul Engstrom

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
