The in-depth article on Kris Pickel ("News Focus," May 2013) was a wonderful reconnection
for us with our favorite news journalist. My husband and I grew up in Cleveland,
but moved to Tucson, Ariz., 36 years ago. During Kris' many years at Tucson's Channel
13, she took a very personal interest in the welfare of the people and the city
that she reported on. Clevelanders are warm and welcoming people so we are certain
that Kris and her family will find much to enjoy while living there.

I saw the link to complete your Rating the Suburbs survey. I am hoping it was a
bogus link after reading a few questions. I always thought it would be great to
be a part of this issue, but when I had to answer questions like how do I protect
my house, do I have a gun, the size of my television and do I talk to my neighbors,
it sounds like you are setting someone up to get robbed. Some of the questions started
getting into too much detail. If it is a bad link, I suggest you investigate and
have it removed. If it is actually your survey, shame on you.
Editor's Note: During February and March, we conducted a survey to see what it's
like to live in the suburbs. To see some of those results, check out our Suburban
Field Guide starting on pg. 143. We have tips on how to make your home safer, just
in case you don't believe us.
