Veggie alternatives to meat aren't always best
Mr. Crowley (“Go for veggie options on July 4,” Viewpoints, July 1) seems unwilling to mention the unfortunate truth that the deadliest outbreaks of Escherichia coli have come from ... vegetables.
Festivals should be revised due to weather, health
I believe this city has a lot that needs changing.
The Peach Festival, to me, seems way out of line. Many elderly and children are seriously at risk due to the heat in the middle of July. As yet, no shut down has been implemented during the heat of the day, from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. This is perhaps the most dangerous time of day for the most vulnerable of our citizens.
Over the years, many have given suggestions for making attending the festival more humane. Unfortunately, their suggestions have fallen on deaf ears.
I also believe that charging an admission fee for Weatherford residents is quite inappropriate.
Christmas on the Square planning is also ill arranged.
Instead of having it at night, in December, I believe a day Christmas event on the Square would be much healthier for our most vulnerable citizens and visitors from other areas of this county.
Whether it be hot or cold, weather planning in our town is needed for the utmost protection for our citizen’s health and welfare. I believe it should be a city liability issue.
Care about people is more important than monetary profits of those in charge or planning or organizing festival and holiday events on Weatherford’s Square.
Greed in political leadership is becoming very unpopular among this town’s taxpayers.
