Dear Sun Spots: We enjoy reading Sun Spots every day; first thing we do is turn to that page. Keep up the good work, it’s very informative. In Monday’s paper there was a picture of Lenny Breau’s daughter and next to her the lady looked like his dear mom, Betty Cody. Please let us know, it was a beautiful picture of both of them. — No Name, Lewiston.
