Thanks & Spanks

THANKS, writes a reader, to city officials in East Liverpool for seeing to the patching of potholes on Burton Alley (especially at its intersection with Lincoln Avenue), which many locals use as a shortcut between Dresden and St. Clair avenues. SPANKS, though, for not painting directional road signs on Dresden at the Weber Way intersection.

THANKS, writes a reader, to local motorists who used extreme caution during a power outage that caused traffic signals to go out near Westgate and other areas of the downtown. SPANKS, though, to the East Liverpool city administration and police chief for not putting an officer or stop signs near these potentially deadly intersections to direct traffic and to keep other motorists, along with our children, safe.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to the person who shot my cat with a BB gun on Erie Street. What did my cat do to you that you felt to punish him in such a cruel way?

THANKS, writes a reader, to Oak Glen High School’s administration for hosting a recognition ceremony for the Oak Glen 1967 wrestling AAA State Champion team. A large picture of the team will be placed on the wall in the gymnasium.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to East Liverpool city officials for the housing inspector position which has become sort of a fiasco.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to area communities that run/support traffic cams on the premise of “safety,” and don’t tell us the true reason for the program — money.

THANKS, writes a reader, to volunteer coaches at the high school level.

SPANKS, writes a reader, to the lack of any type of parking assistance during track and field events at Beaver Local High School. SPANKS, also, to motorists lacking knowledge as to how to properly park in an unmarked area.
