Villager misses the dance floors

To the Editor:

Silver Lake used to have a place to dance. Chula Vista use to have a place to dance. I miss so much the large dance floor at Katie Belle’s but at least you gave us a small dance floor upstairs. Now you are taking that away and that is just not right.  We all came here with the promise of a new retirement life and get used to something we really enjoy and you take it away.  Why are you closing Katie Belle’s? It always did a great business and gave us upper class dining and dancing. We enjoyed the talent that played there. Why would you take the away?
