Re "In GOP They Trust," Dec. 24: Your portrayal of Murrieta is misleading. Murrieta has a Republican majority typical of American suburbia. However, the city is a generous, harmonious community whose residents are of all political and religious persuasions. It has its share of political and religious extremists, but they are not typical of the community. We do have a vibrant Democratic organization in the Temecula-Murrieta area. The Democratic Club has close to 200 members. We had an active campaign headquarters during the last election.

Guests wear sweaters or jackets on nippy evenings. The Temeku Indians discovered the mineral waters, which continue to bubble up through an earthquake fault. Hot water also mixed with the soil where tule plants grew, and the Indians bathed in mud they believed was medicinal.
