    Wow… I am truly impressed with “The Vista Press”, you have so much information in one place for people to view for local activities and local news. Love the calendar… easy to find out what is going on around north county.

    I’ve been out of the area for one year… and it is nice to be able to keep up with my old stomping grounds!

    Keep up the great work! you’ve come a long way!
    Sincerely, Yolie…………
