Right cause, wrong ap­proach

The Compass - - OPINION -

Dear ed­i­tor,

I would like to say a few words con­cern­ing Ms. Yet­man’s view on our town.

While I agree cer­tain ar­eas need clean­ing up, Mayor Coombs is only a hu­man be­ing. He can’t go to each and ev­ery per­son and de­mand that things be cleaned up. In­di­vid­u­als should have the com­mon sense to do this on their own.

As for the com­ments and pic­tures Ms. Yet­man put on Face­book, I think this was the wrong action to take. Maybe a let­ter to Mr. Coombs and the coun­cil mem­bers would have been a bet­ter ap­proach. Re­mem­ber you can catch more flies with honey than with vine­gar.

Also if she thinks so much of her beau­ti­ful town why would she paint such ter­ri­ble pic­tures of it on Face­book for all the world to see?

On an­other thought, maybe some ef­fort could be put into get­ting some wheel­chair ramps to busi­nesses and places of in­ter­est. One place that comes to mind is the Har­bour Grace Med­i­cal Cen­tre and Drug Store.

Cherie Dove, Har­bour Grace
