Letter to the Editor: Sidewalk is needed


I was driving north on U.S. Route 11, between the Food Lion entrance and the Signal Knob development. A man was in a hover-around chair coming toward me in the same lane as me. I moved over to the left about 3 feet or more to miss him.

I suggested several times over the last 10 years to the town by letter that sidewalks ought to be installed. Instead of bump-outs along King Street, the money should be used for sidewalks.

Maybe some people in the Strasburg area think sidewalks are a new invention and we can't afford them. But we wasted money on digging up good sidewalks on King Street and replaced them with poor quality cement, then replaced those sidewalks with better cement near First Bank.

I don't know if those people who oppose sidewalks were Obama voters or Romney voters, but if you think sidewalks along U.S. Route 11 are a good idea, write to the Town Council. If I have to use a hover-around chair on U.S. 11, I want a police escort.
