Isabella Faces profile

Thank you so much for including my young daughter, Sofia Isabella, in the Birmingham “Faces” feature in the March 2018 edition.

Ms. Casadei conducted a wonderful interview with my daughter and I appreciate her interest while speaking with Sofia as well as her article. Thank you again for your inclusive of Sofia and telling her story.

I look forward to receiving my magazine delivered to my home. I run to the mail waiting for it to arrive. Needless to say, once it arrives I know it will make me smile.

No punishment concern

Late in January I was driving through Pontiac when my car was struck by one of the residents.

The attending deputy gave the driver of the other car a citation. The deputy was very helpful and professional.

Now I find that the offending driver has no insurance and I have to pay a substantial deductible myself.

It appears that the sheriff’s department will not pursue the offending driver for having no insurance and it seems to me that there is one law for us and another for Pontiac, thus leaving that driver to damage other people’s property with no concern for any punishment.
