Thanks & Spanks for 2-14-14
SPANKS, writes a reader, to the city of East Liverpool for charging us monthly to park in the lots downtown, yet they don’t take care of them and we have to park in a foot of snow and walk in our work clothes in the foot of snow to get there.
THANKS, writes a reader, to all those who display the American flag but please follow proper etiquette and properly dispose of flags that are torn or tattered, and replace them.
THANKS, writes a reader, to the kind neighbor on Parshall Drive in Wellsville who plowed driveways during the most recent snow storm.
THANKS, writes a reader, to the men who helped me when my car was stuck in the snow on St. Clair Avenue on Thursday. And THANKS to the bus driver who tried to help me, too.
THANKS, writes a reader, to Ishmeil Heard for seeing that I was shoveling my walk and came with shovel in hand to ask if I would like help, which I gratefully accepted.
THANKS, writes a reader, to community members in Wellsville who have volunteered to listen to our third grade students read three mornings each week. Their generosity has helped our Garfield Elementary students’ reading skills improve tremendously.
SPANKS, writes a reader, to the East Liverpool City Street Department for the deplorable conditions of the city streets this winter. THANKS, though, to the surrounding townships that managed to keep their main streets plowed and passable.
THANKS, writes a reader, to the our local McDonald’s crew and patrons for helping us get our car out of the snow and ice. We do have some good people here.
THANKS, writes a reader, to the young man who stopped and dug my husband’s vehicle out of a snow bank Friday. He wouldn’t take any money, and worked without gloves or a hat. Good and kind people do really exist.
SPANKS, writes a reader, to a local restaurant for not training its employees correctly and permitting them to continually be rude to customers.
THANKS, writes a reader, to the man on St. Clair Avenue who helped my daughter when her car became stuck in the snow on her way to work Feb. 9.
SPANKS, writes a reader, to people who park on side streets in the road so people can’t get by, especially when only one lane is plowed.
SPANKS, writes a reader, to employees of a local all-you-can-eat buffet who told me and my wife we had too much to eat and should go home.
SPANKS, writes a reader, to the person who hit my daughter’s car as she was going up St. Clair Avenue on Tuesday afternoon and fled the scene.
SPANKS, writes a reader, to those people who run for public office, get elected, then do not attend meetings because they are out of town.
