I wholeheartedly agree to the statements Mike Aydelott made in his Sept. 22 letter. I too have encountered a silent and frowning Mr. Grocott in the neighborhood as well. It’s a shame when a simple friendly encounter or gesture from anyone goes unnoticed — perhaps more so from a community representative.

What are you trying to do here Sharon Levine? Slander Mr. Grocott's character? He has been nothing but nice in my experience living in San Carlos for over 15 years.


What was the "gesture"? Hard to believe he'd ignore a greeting. Details, please.

Ms. Levine, how can we be sure you or Mr. Aydelott have actually encountered Mr. Grocott? After all, if the person hasn’t acknowledged Mr. Aydelott, perhaps the guy isn’t named Matt. And since you didn’t garner a response, it could be someone who you think looks like Mr. Grocott. It’s a shame when a simple friendly encounter or gesture that goes unnoticed results in another nasty letter attempting to demean Mr. Grocott – especially from a community neighbor.
