State and City need to address Doug Beard's valid concerns

Dear Ed, I'm sure you remember, as I do, when Lowe's Lane was not much more than a muddy path that ran from Jamestown Street back to Mr. John D. Lowe's barn. How it has metamorphosed into a state road over the years is probably more by chance than by design. I hope the State will take a look at this street and address Doug Beard's very valid concerns. Ann Heskamp Curtis
Thanks, Ann Heskamp Curtis. I do remember. And I agree 100%. In so many ways, our town has been taken away from us. It didn't have to be. Maybe it will happen. I've got more hopes now than ever that the Mayor and City Council are actually addressing concerns of the residents of the town than ever. We've endured unnecessary speeding, noise/disturbances of the peace, noise, unnecessary run-off and flooding, for too long. No doubt Lowe's Lane speeding needs to be stopped. One thing I do know, though, is that we'll need unity and attendance at City Council meetings to get anything done. - Ed Waggener
