A Few Letters, Sun-Star & and Mike McGuire Articles about Livingston Politics (and a few other things Worthy of Note) 2008-2009

Note From TheGardeningSnail – Because some of these links go all the way back to before the Recall Election,  most of the original links to Merced Sun Star Articles have “expired”: However, I’ve done a little Cyber Searching recently and found a few of them in “Newspaper Purgatory”.

So, if the first link in each “set” gives you a “Page Cannot Be Displayed” Error Message, try the second one.

As for the ones I haven’t found yet. Those of you with access to online newspaper data bases may still be able to locate a copy. Might take you a few clicks, but already having a Title and a Date Published should help out a bit
