Wu family gives Lee’s another chance
The Wu family managed one of the top Chinese food destinations -- Lee’s Canton Restaurant -- for 15 years and then sold it five years ago. As of last month, they’re back at it again.
Manager Shelly Wu, whose parents own the business, said the last owners handed the keys back.
Wu said it’s been crazy going back to a full-time restaurant schedule, but her family didn’t want to see the place close.
“We’re still figuring things out but it’s been really good to see some of the same regulars from years ago. They’ve been happy to see us and we’re happy to see them.”
“How is it?” we asked a customer leaving the restaurant at 511 Reeves Ave. “Like it used to be,” she said with a grin.

Readers comments on climate change
Another report was issued recently painting an even more urgent picture for global climate change. We asked locals to comment. Here’s a sample:
– Mark J Currier: Hoax. Climate changes every day. Man cannot, short of a nuclear war, change it much. It’s cyclical.
– Kurt Gaston: Except 99.9 percent of scientists would disagree. Are you a scientist?
