07/11/2005: "Penwell & Galt Are Leaving Out Key Issue"


Dear Editor,

Both Mr. Penwell and Mr. Galt are leaving out the key issue that brought our "emotional" presentation to the school board:

We firmly believe that if Mr. Galt is allowed to put in a "temporary" entrance to the ball fields at the corner of Larson and Carter, (and run in one or two hundred loads of material this summer through our narrow child-filled streets) that that entrance will become permanent. All other possible (and more appropriate) entrances have been written out of any solution. Those other neighborhoods have been "protected" by the developers who sold the land to the schools.

Of course we want to get together with anyone proposing a reasonable solution. This is the 2nd time that needed ball fields have been planned on this island without prior negotiations with the neighborhoods that would be heavily impacted. Surely we should all learn from this.


Regards, Lee Sturdivant
