RE the Oct. 27 article on the Martinez murals: Mr. Kelly’s article was well done and informative. However, a major fact was overlooked. To wit: the murals would have been destroyed if it were not for Barbara and Gus Theverge. the Theverges were owners of the La Avenida Café at the time of the major remodel. It was because of their efforts taht the murals were saved, moved and restored. They, in large part, saw to the murals’ restoration and donation to the City of Coronado.

Bravo Barbara and Gus and thank you for your foresight and generosity.
