Editorial: Halt the Fiasco by Margaret Barton

Sow and Sow

The notion of beautifying a truck-run (Main St.) by burying the power lines is ludicrous. I don’t loiter in the street gazing heavenward counting the wires or lack thereof- I’m busy focusing at ground level, bent on escaping with my life!

You want to improve downtown? Start awarding traffic tickets to worthy recipients- Enact a 20mph limit, and ENFORCE IT. And even more basic, STOP the over-building and rampant development of this town, thus exacerbating the very traffic jam-ups you now don’t know how to deal with.

You can primp up the beast all you want via that 4 million dollars you have earmarked for such folly, it will not render you a silk purse in the end, but WILL get the town an empty one.
