I should turn off the lights and sit in the dark in my home since the street will be blocked off and I won't be able to choose to leave even if I want to?
Access is the problem; certainly not the kids, not even necessarily the 'tradition' of the street as Halloween central (although I freely admit that it is not my favorite 'holiday').
The problem is the fact that I was not allowed to access my home when I chose to and needed to. There was no clause in our purchase agreement that said participation in Halloween activities on Jackson was madatory.
I don't believe one can dispute this; I respectfully submit that an event of this sort which denies city residents access to their property is not right.
and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Sitnews.
