And here, they find acceptance from the town's 24,000 longtime residents, including the Hispanics who've been an integral part of Garden City for decades. "Our community has grown to accept diversity because we're used to it," state Rep.

Following is the prepared text of President Reagan's farewell address to the nation Wednesday night: My fellow Americans, this is the 34th time I'll speak to you from the Oval Office, and the last.
