Sound Off 8/10/2014
I just wanted to say I agree with the Sound Off item, you know, about Bradford County towns, the little paper that was published. I too noticed it didn't have Ulster, Leroy or Herrickville, some of the little tiny towns that people would really appreciate hearing about.
A better use for funds
The Veteran's Memorial Park will only require more and more money over time for upkeep and it serves no functional purpose. As a society, we need to realize that being practical is the only way to turn around the economy. A better use of the funds would have been providing them to actual veterans in hospitals in need of medical attention.
No need for parking garage
There is absolutely no need for a parking garage in Towanda. If someone provided the borough with a blank check for half a million dollars, I'm absolutely certain that a parking garage would not have made the top 100 on the priority list. Put an end to the parking garage immediately!
'If it ain't broke, don't fix it'
Bradford County should not attempt to go along with the tourism promotion business. Tourism promotion is a demanding and changing program to bring visitors to our area and that job is being done well now. The old saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," should be shouted out loud and clear to all municipalities. We do not need another program sending money designated for specific purposes to county. The people who are creating the reason why the tax is paid, need to be left alone to do what they do so well. They themselves know how to develop their plan and know how to implement it. They, and only they, should make the decisions without county interference.
Keep sounding off
Sound Off is a wonderful, interesting addition to this newspaper. I look forward to it every day. I wish more people would call in so the column could be increased. This forum is easy to use and a great way to express divergent view points. So to everybody reading The Daily Review: Keep sounding off!
Thank you Margie
The old-time picnic in the Valley turned out to be very festive and well-attended. This event was one of the last events Margie Ross organized for Sayre Theatre and the community to enjoy. Thank you Margie for making the Sayre Theatre what it is today.
