Paul Luvera, Sr., wrote many letters to editors of several papers in the last ten years of his life.
On November 26, 1986, Luvera sent a letter to the ANACORTES AMERICAN recalling the origin of Causland Park. Luvera was working at the time for $.25 and hour, but donated $5 because, "I expect to spend the rest of my life here in Anacortes, and I want to tell my children and grandchildren that 'I own $5 worth of that park! ' "
A handwritten anecdote on the right side of the page tells of Luvera being reprimanded by Chief of Police Al Sellenthin for drinking moonshine at a public dance during Prohibition. After that, Luvera confined his drinking to private homes.
