Editorial Re: Grand Marshal Nominations

Editorial – There is a movement around town to have John Shear named Grand Marshal for this year’s 4th of July parade.  Shear, 90-year old resident of Sierra Madre, jumped in front of a runaway horse at Santa Anita and (quite possibly) saved the life of a young girl that was in the horse’s path.  The story of his heroism was picked up by the wire services, and his story has been told worldwide, with hundreds of news articles and television stories broadcast telling of his bravery.   SierraMadreNews.Net heartily endorses that movement.  If you agree, send your e-mail with your nomination and a brief explanation as to why you are nominating him to MatthewBosse@hotmail.com.
