Remedies needed for panhandlers, bad drivers

Dear Editor,

Since I have been retired from public work for several years, I have had time to think about all the good things that have taken place here in Boyle County.

Millennium Park with all its good facilities where people can go and enjoy walking, picnics, and large gatherings. Then this year, the complete makeover of Weisiger Park next to the Boyle County Courthouse. It is very beautiful now.

Centre College has its largest enrollment in history, dating back to 1819. Dr. and Mrs. John Roush are doing such a great job and are so humble in their doing it.

The many uses of Pioneer Playhouse, where we have attended the end of summer diversity picnic the Sunday night before Labor Day. For city commissioner J.H. Adkins and his way of being appreciative of everybody coming.

For several new blacktop roads, Parksville Knob and Alum Springs, roads being completely redone.

There are two things that still need attention. One is the habit of panhandling, where people stand on street corners and beg. There happens not to be anything the law can do about them.

The other is cars passing a stopped vehicle with their turn signal on. These other cars pass on the right side of the road. This is against the law but it happens all the time. 

Let’s work hard to change these two situations.

Rev. and Mrs. Ron Moroni
