SOUND OFF / Dec. 30, 2011

Published 12:07 am Friday, December 30, 2011

Sound Off highlights anonymous, brief takes on the news offered via telephone by Daily News readers.

In response to the editorial in Wednesday morning’s paper, I would like for you to know that St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Bath has been taking donations of pantry items the first Sunday of every month for three and a half years. It is easy for the parishioners to do, and it has been well received by The Salvation Army.

What is up with the water at the Old Ford community? Nothing has been done about it. We can’t drink it.

At the intersection of Northwoods and Market Street Extension, the sidewalk is broken in pieces, with a hole in the middle of it. If one were walking, day or night, and fell and hurt himself or herself, who would be liable, the city, the contractor or both?

There are potholes in the roads in Macswoods that haven’t been fixed since Hurricane Irene. Also, there are still many trees down that landowners and/or the city have not taken care of. Something needs to be done about these problems.
