To The Editor--A Reader Wants To Know?

HELLO,
HERE IS A QUESTION FOR THE COUDERSPORT BORO BIG WIGS.
HOW DO THE PEOPLE AT FASTENAL, 201 MAIN ST. GET AWAY WITH
PARKING IN THE LOADING ZONE ACROSS THE STREET FROM JUBILEE
WHEN THEY ARE NOT LOADING/UNLOADING PRODUCT? THEY ARE ALSO
PARKED LESS THEN 5 FEET FROM THE ALLEY MAKING IT HAZARDOUS
WHEN TRYING TO EXIT THE ALLEY. THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR OVER
A YEAR.
THE POLICE CHIEF DRIVES AROUND SMOKING IN THE POLICE VEHICLE
AND IGNORES THE MANY PARKING VIOLATIONS IN THE BORO.
UPS AND FEDEX TRUCKS PARK IN OR BLOCK HANDICAP PARKING PLACES.
VEHICLES WITHOUT PLACARDS, AS REQUIRED BY LAW ARE PARKED IN HANDICAP
PARKING PLACES.
PEOPLE TAKE A HANDICAPPED PERSON TO THE STORE, ETC. AND THEN PARK
IN A HANDICAP PARKING PLACE AND DO THEIR SHOPPING WHILE THE HANDICAPPED
PERSON REMAINS IN THE VEHICLE. THIS IS UNAUTHORIZED USE OF A PLACARD AND
I BELIEVE IT CAN BE TAKEN AWAY FROM THE HANDICAPPED PERSON.
I THINK PARKING AGAINST TRAFFIC IS STILL A VIOLATION, BUT IT IS NOT ENFORCED
IN COUDY.
IF PEOPLE CAN GET AWAY WITH VIOLATING THE LITTLE LAWS THEY THINK THEY
CAN GET AWAY WITH THE BIG LAWS TOO.
THE SENSITIVITY OF THESE ISSUES REQUIRES THAT I REMAIN,
ANONYMOUS,

I agree with some of what you're saying, but the bit about taking the handicapped placard away from handicapped people is mislead.

Even if a handicapped person remains in the vehicle, they're still allowed to park in a hanicapped parking spot. How would you like to have get in and out of a vehicle without the use of your legs? It's extremely difficult, and can be very tedious. Along with many others (I'm sure), I'd appreciate a bit more sensitivity in your speech; And please loosen up on the CAPS LOCK KEY FOR GOD SAKES! By using all capitals you reduce the value and meaning of capitalized words.

Have a pleasant day.

I dont understand why this town seems to care about little stuff more then inpoerten stuff.Notvery many people even use that alley, so who cares? And then to rip about his post about his caps lock is even better. Again who cares? What about level 3 outsorcing so many jobs to out of the states? These people have BaXXX, not only are they firing people left and right, but want the people they are letting go to train these non english speaking fools to do thier jobs! What are people supossed to do? Thier are not many jobs in coudersport, its sad that our kids have to move just to live, now I guess we will to? And this will affect us all in some way, it may be you or your kids, or grandkids, I dont want to move, but who can afford to drive to a job out of town? But I guess we care more about whos parking where, or who use;s proper punctuation. And while our country is falling apart around us, its nice to know that our Gov. is going to march in a gay parade. That must be the most inportent thing he could do right now! Come on people let wake up and talk about the stuff that matters!

Mr. Jackson,

I find it disturbing that you don't think that issues involving handicapped people or civil rights are important.

However, I understand and agree with your point about outsourcing. We need to keep and create jobs right here in Potter County; And there's no easy way to do that. Why would any business actually want to relocate here? We do have a highly trained, technologically-able workforce, due to the Adelphia fallout, so that might be kind of an attractive thing, but a well-trained workforce can be found in other, more convenient places, too.

Some might say that a great leader needs to step up, but a single person isn't going to be able to solve these problems, and neither will any one group of people. It needs to become not only a community effort, but a top priority.

All in all, it's going to be a tough bunch of years coming up, Darryl, and I hope to God that Potter County can find ways to cope, including learning important life skills like intelligent writing with proper grammar and spelling.

Have a good one.

Could not agree with you more Darryl Jackson...And by the way Mr. Zink I posted about our Gov. not having any morals and our state going to hell in a hand bag, I started posting Anonymous only because I forgot my password! I have no problem stating my name and from now on will by signing my posts.

Our paid politicans Federal and State have allowed this country to be in the mess it is in...so busy spending on pork projects they are pissing our hard earned tax dollars down the drain.

Local businesses have had to cut down, cut back and down size just to stay in business and with the price of gas, diesel fuel and off road fuel we have our hands full with our own businesses. So we must put pressure on the people that get paid to straighten out this mess they have created. And I have tried, believe me I have tried. But Mr. Gov. won't talk to me, why should he, I'm just another pissed off tax payer. I told his office the last call I made to give him a message for me, "When he grows a back bone or a set of balls to give Vicki Sherwood a call, if he can find the time!". And I made several calls over 3 or 4 weeks before I got this upset.

I Mean these were not important, what I meant was I think with all thats going on, there are more important things to be done. And if someone wants to speak out about things those of you who may have had a better education, should not rip it apart becouse a word is spelled wrong, or punctuation is not perfect. I myself am a disabled person, at the young age of 40 I had a few heart attacks, and then a 5 way bypass. So my wife now is the bread winner in our house, and after Adelphia, and now level 3, whats left here? I have to agree with Mrs Sherwood, we pay people to take care of these sort of things and they have let these United states go to hell in a hand basket. But people like you would rather complain about Caps lock than listen to what others have to say? I don't care how its said or wrote, as long as it gets said. Because if enough people say it maybe some will listen.
Good night to you sir.

Mr. Jackson & Ms. Sherwood,

I clearly made in a mistake in the way I spoke about grammar, spelling, and that sort of thing. My intentions were not to "rip" anyone, but just to point some things out that needed improvement; and I'll never say something if it's a matter of one or two errors, but if it's a complete mess, I will. On the internet, all you see of a person is what they write, so if someone writes sloppily or with no care for grammar, it can make it very difficult to understand what that individual is trying to say. But as you said, Mr. Jackson, small things like grammar are the least of our worries.

We do pay people to take care of problems for us, but if we don't like the way they do their job, we can always elect someone else next time around; and complain! Always pester the hell out of gv't officials if you want to make a point. From the sounds of it, Ms. Sherwood, you definitely put that practice to good use. I seriously commend you for caring enough to take time out of your day to take a stand.

Just out of curiousity, Ms. Sherwood, how is it exactly that supporting gay rights is immoral? Is it based on religious grounds, or something else? I'm not asking this question to start some kind of angry debate, but instead just out of good old natural curiousity.

Anyhow, I hope you folks have a great day.
