Readers rant about long-term construction project, rave about help with car

Share story

RANT To the construction that’s been ongoing for months  along a block of East Cherry Street. It seems like someone dug a hole for fun, put up a bunch of orange cones and tape, then forgot about it. The hole is covered with sagging wood, forcing bicyclists to exit the blocked bike lane and enter traffic on an already dangerous street. Please finish what you started!

RAVE Pulling into a mall parking lot, my car made a strange noise, and when I parked and turned off the key, the car didn’t shut off. I was very anxious, but along came a nice young man who knew what to do. I called my roadside assistance service, but before they got there he was able to shut the motor off. I’m so thankful for his fast action to help me.
