Parking, Trash
By Lisa Krieger


March 27, 2012

It seems to be the parking has been an isue for some time now. I notice a lot of people parking in Handicapped zones and they don't seem to be ticketed. In fact, in front of my own place, a peron was taking up two spots, which left the person behind them, take up another spot, which led us to park a ways from our own home. We called Law Enforcement.. they came in the area, had a Cruiser check it out... WE thought something would become of it and straighten it out.. nope... they just looked at the parking situation and drove off!

On another note, when are businesses going to pick up trash around their area and start ticketing people for littering? FINE those people that are making this town look like a dump sight. TONS of people come to our town and when I go for a walk there is tons of garbage as you walk down the street. Beautiful huh? I liked it better out in the woods where it was actually a lot more pleasant to see.

For instance, check out the parking at the mall. Take a walk and see for yourself. Anyone have an issue with me writing about this, should take a closer look out your window or when you drive down the street later. Tell me if I'm wrong.
