Congratulations and hats off to Manos Unidas! Just read the article “Park reclaimed for day of soccer” (Page B1, Aug. 18): This is wonderful, 1,200 neighbors coming out and together to take back their park and their neighborhood! I can’t tell you what an awesome step forward this is! You are showing what can happen when “United Hands” come together. Also, congratulations to Stanislaus County authorities for enforcing the “gang injunction” in this south Modesto neighborhood!

Keep up the great work and best of luck to you all!

Elaine Ixcot, co-chairman, DelWood Neighborhood Alliance, Modesto
