    Rather than using tax money for enforcement of underage drinking laws, money would be more wisely used on more educational opportunities.

  2. DELOZIER says:

    everett is a joke, several members of council do nothing but kiss two time dui offender charlie karns’s ass. and some are to scared to say anything to him, but have no problem talking about him behind his back. does everett really want a two dui offender help run this town?. officer fletcher is a complete disgrace. he spends a lot of time talking to young girls at sheetz for hrs. and has been seen hanging out talking to his buddy blake for hrs while on duty. he hit a street sweeper last year causing damage to the new police car, why was that never reported ?, i was also told that he does not like the new place that the teenagers hangout. the reason being. he cant sit and talk to the young girls without causing suspicion to himself. how is he even a cop with a criminal record. why has he not been fired yet ?, everyone knew he was messing around with a married woman while her husband was in jail and he was on duty. and really when was the last time fletcher even made an arrest ?, everett needs new council members this bunch is a failure. it’s election season. time to give other’s a chance to straighten everett up

    TIME TO CLEAN UP EVERETT GOVERNMENT OR IT WILL JUST GET WORSE

  4. Renee says:

    I THINK ITS FANTASTIC THAT EVERETT BOROUGH IS BUYING THEIR MAINTANCE DEPARTMENT ANOTHER NEW DUMP TRUCK FOR
    $69,000 DOLLARS. I HOPE IN 5 YEARS IS DOES NOT LOOK A MESS ALL RUSTED UP AND NEVER WASHED LIKE THE ONE THEY ARE GETTING RID OF.WHEN YOU HAUL SALT AND GRAVEL AFTER YOUR DONE WASH OFF YOUR TRUCKS LIKE ALL OTHER PLACES DO AND THEY WILL LAST MUCH LONGER THAT WAY. PEOPLE ARE WATCHING THIS TIME SO KEEP IT CLEAN.

  5. BEDFORD COUNTY RAW says:

    EVERETT BORO POLICE OFFICER BRAIN FLETCHER TURN YOURSELF IN FOR HIT & RUN. YOU KNOW VERY WELL YOU HIT A STREET SWEEPER WITH THE NEW POLICE VEHICLE AND FLED THE SCENE. AND SOMEONE YOU KNOW HAS PICS OF THE DAMAGE. YOU ARE NO BETTER THEN ANYONE ELSE WHO COMMITS A HIT & RUN. WHO FIXED THE VEHICLE ???. AND ARE YOU STILL SEEING YOUR MARRIED GIRL FRIEND CHRISTA EICHELBERGER ???

  6. bmx says:

    hey if your looking to find something to do for the kids find a track or build one and see how much money will come to this town we have how many bars and how many churchs….. but if you spend one time at a bmx track its the worst drug you could ever have…… when u see a 3 year old ride a bike and yes they can then you watch a 15 year old fly in the air and land the chill is better than any drug you could ever want …… and the you watch a older man like charlie race a 20 inch now thats just funny so building a place to dance and charge 2 bucks to get in how fast will that pay off you spend 22,000 to build a track and the the whole town goes on the map in the bmx world and then the town will make money….people come from fare and near to put the kids on it to ride and hope to be on the cover of bmx and yes there is a kid in this town who is on a cover of a bmx and you all know him you might not like him but he is on the top and still going up …. there is alot of his friends that look up to him cuz he is the one that when hes at the track everyone is trying to keep up to if you see him stop him and talk to him thats all ride free and ride bmx

  7. Tami says:

    Renee,
    Well, your moving to Everett. How nice. Im sure there is a trailer park that could use a new Queen. You look, and talk like one, might as well live it.

  8. Renee Fox says:

    While Tami I date a man from Everett and will be moving there in the future.You are a low life and smell of it so enjoy your smelly existance.

  9. TAMI says:

    Renee, I can tell you I am not Mrs. Weist. You seem to have a lot to say from Berkley Springs , WV. I can say your attitude and mouth fit your profile pic. (TRASH) If it looks like trash, and talks like trash, guess what it is ?

  10. FREE PRESS STAFF says:

    that is correct hdouglas72 is NOT mr. weist

  11. hdouglas72 says:

    Renee, wa ha ha ha. Your stupidity made me laugh out loud this morning. I can assure you i am not mr. Weist! I wouldnt even know him if he was standing in front of me. And secondly ive never been with a woman in my life!! What makes you think im a man? You dont think douglas could be a last or middle name??? Please have bcfp clarify im not mr weist. You renee are a turd nugget. Thats because you dont have the capacity to be a full turd.

  12. Renee Fox says:

    QUEENIE WEIST IF YOU WANT TO PRETEND TO BE TAMI GO RIGHT AHEAD EVERYONE SEES THAT THIS IS YOU HIDING UNDER ANOTHER NAME.

    AND YOUR HUSBAND WANTS TO PRETEND TO BE hdouglas AND THINK HE IS CLEVER HE IS NOT.

    WHY DON’T YOU GO BACK TO FINDING WAYS TO RIP OFF YOUR MODELS WITH FALSE PROMISES.

    YOUR NOW THE TALK OF THE COUNTY FOR HOW STUPID AND IGNORANT YOU ARE.

    PACK YOUR BAGS AND MOVE AWAY BECAUSE NO ONE WANTS YOU AROUND AND NO ONE IS GOING TO BUY FROM A CRAZY LADY.

  13. TAMI says:

    Renee, I think you should work on trying to convince people your not a hooker, Your profile pic sure does make you look like it. If you can call people names I can to. By the way how much do you charge ?

  14. hdouglas72 says:

    Thanks for checking tami lol. Ill take your word for it. Free press staff i dont care what the topic was. If this bimbo gonna call herself a hot chick on your site she better be prepared. This is the best thing going on, on the bcfp in between news updates!

  17. FREE PRESS STAFF says:

  18. TAMI says:

    hdouglas 72, I checked out Renee’s page. What a Bimbo, She looked like she just finished work on the corner. Renee, you need to try and find some clothes that fit you, instead of squeezing in something and then cant close it.

  19. hdouglas72 says:

    Renee as for looking at your profile page i could give two sh*&$ less who you are. If you think im that interested in you you better get a grip. What a loser.

  20. Renee Fox says:

    Maybe in the future cameraman thank you.

  21. FREE PRESS STAFF says:

  22. Renee Fox says:

  23. Renee Fox says:

    Renee

  24. FREE PRESS STAFF says:

    renee,

    when we click on the link it says the ” The page you requested was not found.”

  25. hdouglas72 says:

    Renee first of all im young enough to be mrs.weists son or grandson so you can forget the fact that i wanna get in her pants. Puhlease! As for your reference that im a crossdresser, lol id have a hell of a time squeezing my size 10 foot into a pump. YOUR comments show what a classless hillbilly piece of %$# that you are. In one word your are “unedgemacated” as you would spell it! Theres nothing you can say that will offend me so bring it on toots.

  26. Renee Fox says:

    hdouglas72 Its so nice to see you have another identity Just Curious . Nice try

  27. Renee Fox says:

    Hello
    Sorry Everyone ,This is me Renee Fox you are welecome to look at my profile. Little minds just can’t think someone will stand up for what they believe in.

    https://www.facebook.com/https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001727188240

  28. Cynthia Zembower Fouts says:

    TO : Just Curious , you could possibly be correct, guess I was dismissed by Renee or who ever it is.. LOL…. Just shows how much lack of respect they really have for other people . What a life to be that unhappy…:)

  29. Just Curious says:

    To Renee
    I have a feeling that you are not female , maybe a disgruntled police officer that has a grudge against everyone.

  30. Renee Fox says:

    Cynthia I’m Sorry I Thought You And I were Done Speaking.
    Wow Do You Think What He Said Was Nice,Why Do You Keep Commenting Against Me After He Does.
    I Think You And Him Are Also Friends…RIGHT

  31. Cynthia Zembower Fouts says:

    WOW! Renee that wasn’t nice at all!

  32. FREE PRESS STAFF says:

    renee,

    you seem to be taken this discussion to a different direction, what is with all the name calling ??

  33. Renee Fox says:

    Well Creep You Have Proven Your Of The Same Cut As Quennie Weist,Another Idiot With A Big Mouth.Why Do You Hide Who You Are Creep.
    And Jim and Penny do not live in Everett anymore Creep
    get with it.
    I’m sure you want to get in Queenies Pants you think she is such a Hot Classy Babe.
    Or maybe you buy all your dresses from Queenie Weist Yourself Creep. Get A Life Crossdresser.

  34. hdouglas72 says:

    Renee, your a hot chick? From Everett? Something about those words in the same sentence are highly doubtful. If you indeed are a hot chick you realize that means the following criteria must be met.1. You must have not lost any teeth due to meth mouth.2. You cant wear looney tune t shirts.3. You have to move outta Everett pronto before you become one of them. And no I am not Ms. Weists husband nor am I friend. I think she is a classy lady and you could learn a thing or two from her about how to dress and carry yourself like a lady. Pity Mrs. Mcfadden doesnt open up a charm school in town.

  35. Renee Fox says:

    Well hdouglas72 Which Are You The Husband Or The Boyfriend To Eleanor Weist. I’m A Hot Chick Buckaro A Your Comments From The Peanut Gallery Are Always Great Because All Your Doing Is Hurting Her Worse With Your Mouth.

  36. hdouglas72 says:

    Renee my dear sweet misguided friend. Let me tell you dearie you might wanna try omars for your next dress. In case you didnt know hes the tent maker and has promised he can make a dress big enough to cover your fat @%&. Your a miserable person. Who in their right mind thinks they are gonna get FREE clothes for modeling in this area? Your noy paris hilton for christs sake.

  37. Cynthia Zembower Fouts says:

    Mrs.Fox, I didn’t have the opportunity to read the letter to the editor. Yes, the line of law enforcement officers still go on in my family. I myself retired from the field serving my time in a large city. The law enforcement community get berated for doing good and bad and thanked sometime for the things they handle and are expected to handle to protect the public. I really don’t think Mrs Weist is a habitual offender or speeder. I am so sorry that your evening of fun was spoiled but as you yourself said the person was out of control , yelling and carrying on. Thank goodness the officers who made the arrest stayed cool enough to handle the situation,with out anyone getting hurt. Just a minor inconvenience for you correct?
    If you do not or have not set foot in to Mrs.Weist shop how can you call it names, just as you are accusing Mrs.Weist of doing to the officer. Yes, there are times that officers have time on there hands to sit on long breaks, have you thought maybe that is what she has seen when there may have been something that should be taken care of. I am not here to make you upset,judge or want to argue. Maybe if you would take the time to speak to Mrs.Weist and ask her what she is upset about you could become mutual friends. As far as the fashion show , I was in a few and it was always my understanding that the clothing would be discounted not free , as part of the sales go to her charity of choice for that show. So Thank you to your Family and may your father Rest in Peace knowing he raised a daughter who cares enough to look, listen and hear all sides. Have a good evening.

  38. Renee Fox says:

    Well hdouglas72 I’ll tell ya what there Buckaro you want to keep it going.I got more ammo then you will want to hear.
    How would everyone like to know about Eleanor Weist making promises to women to to model for her in her little thrift shop shows,telling them they could keep one dress they wore.
    Only to find out after it was all over that they were lied to and could only have a percentage off of the dresses price.
    You want to talk about bad business practices!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WOW SOME STAR BUSINESS PERSON THAT IS.
    Yes Wallmart Has some Wonderful Clothing Lines…..Creep

  39. hdouglas72 says:

    A thrift shop??? Really rene? Grow up. I highly doubt youve ever even set foot in a classy ladies dress shop. More likely to see your type at wal mart.

  40. Renee Fox says:

    Well Cynthia do you think Queenie Weists Letter To The Editor Was Ok.You Come from A Long Line Of Law Enforcement Officers.
    She Attacks Them For Going On Their lunch/Dinner Break And Tries To Make It Look As If Thats All They Do On Their Shift.
    I Saw The Everett Officers Arresting A Drunk/Druggie Outside Of Hockenberrys Bar Two Weeks Ago.He Was About 300lbs and 6’5 Goes By The Name Of Thomas Clark,Joseph Clarks Brother That Is In Prision For Murder.They Had To Fight With Him Because He Was Resisting Arrest.He Was Yelling And Screaming Like He Was Out Of His Mind.I Was Out Trying To Have A Good Time With My Boyfriend And Had To Listen To A Crazy Man On Drugs. Now Do Any Of You Thank The Officers For Arresting A Mad Man And Protecting The Citizens, NO YOU DON”T.
    She Wants To Slam Law Enforcement Officers Because She Did Wrong And Got Cought.How Do You Feel About That. All officers Get Breaks No Matter Where They Are. My Dad Gave His Life Protecting The Citizens And My Brothers Are Willing To Do The Same For Their Citizens. I Told My Brothers About My Letters On The BCFP And Yes Cynthia They Are Proud That I Am Standing Up For Our Local Police Officers.

  41. Cynthia Zembower Fouts says:

    Ms.Fox , I too come from a long line of law enforcement officers, I am sure your actions are making them very proud.

  42. Renee Fox says:

    When A Thrift Shop Owner Attacks The Police Department Over Nothing,And Attempts To Damage The Police Department Because She Didn’t Get Her Way I’m Going To Speak Up. Queenie Weist Didn’t Get Her Way By Trying To Bully The Police Department For Doing Their Job. She Broke The Law And The Law Won,But Oh No Queenie Weist Thinks Now I Must Get My Revenge. So She Attacks The Police Department Ever Way She Can Think Of.She Wants To Act Like A Thug She Will Be Treated As A Thug.You Can Damm Well Guarantee If Something Happened To Her She Would Be Calling For Help Right Away. How Does It Feel With People Saying Nasty Things About You Queenie,Its Not Very Nice Is It.
    These Officers Take This Crap From People Like You Day After Day Week After Week.My Father Was Shot As A Police Officer And Died When I Was 7 Years Old In Georgia. My Brothers Are police Officers Now In Virginia And They Risk Their Lives Every Day For Sorry Ass people That Don’t Care If They Live Or Die.
    Its Because Of These Officers That You Can Set On Your Front Porch And Rock In Your Rocking Chair At Night.
    Cynthia I Don’t Care What You Have To Say,Queenie The Thrift Shop Owner Started All Of This With Her Big Mouth.

  43. Cynthia Zembower Fouts says:

    I have read Mrs.Weist Comment three times and can’t find where she called anyone names… Just that Everett is a tired Shabby Little town… Can you quote the name calling please…I also don’t see where she has said she was going to be doing any whoop ass as you say. Please correct me if I am wrong, I am sure you will.

  44. Renee Fox says:

    Yes lets get more of the Bedford Business Assocation speaking up for Poor Eleanor Weist. You opened a can of Whoop Ass up on here Queenie Weist calling Everett People Names and Downing Our Town. Lets see how many more of your Business People Friends stand up for you and your Thrift Shop.
    All of this because you got a speeding ticket,don’t break the law and you won’t get fined. As Larry Beard stated Get A Life Lady.

  45. Cynthia Zembower Fouts says:

    Thrift shop? Thinks she better than everyone? I have Known Mrs.Weist for quite sometime. If it was you that received the ticket maybe the situation would be you and not she. I haven’t seen a clothing shop in Everett of Quite some time! As far as thinking she is better than others , I have seen this lady do many good things for Everett and Bedford and I don’t think there is a time she doesn’t support any of the fundraisers for Everett or Bedford Schools.. I will continue to visit and buy from her Shop and Yes move to Bedford Eleanor! Everett doesn’t deserve a lady of your class. Just sounds like a little bit of jealousy, and you have evolved into a woman who can stand and speak for your self and others don’t like it!

  46. Renee Fox says:

    Everett Borough has many good people living in it and Mrs Weist is not one of them.
    Mrs Weist is a very rude crude women,she thinks that she is better then everyone else.
    As for the remarks about Everett Borough I agree with Larry Beard that if you don’t like Everett Leave and move to Bedford.
    We get sick of your (I am better then everyone else),She gets a speeding ticket and tries to turn everything around on the police because OMG SHE Could Not Of Broken The LAW.
    Well Queenie Weist I have news for you your no better then anyone else.
    Because you run a thrift shop in Bedford you think I am someone,I have news for you Your A Nobody.
    Anyone that shops in your thrift shop must be desperate.
    I have family in Everett and I take offense to your comments about Everett.
    I like Larry Beard will never shop in your store again and I will tell all of my family members to never step foot into your store also.
    I’m sure you will have all you store friends write in and stand up for you from Bedford Business Associations like the one that did today. Don’t let the door hit you in the butt as you move out of Everett.

  47. hdouglas72 says:

    In reference to Larry Beards comments. Everett should be greatful that it has someone with as much class as Mrs. Weist living in it. As for your comments about her leaving town Bedford would welcome her with open arms. Her business is an asset to town. Of course her shops in Bedford! Duhhh theres not enough LADIES with class in Everett to support it. Everett sure.has continued on a down hill slide the last decade. It wasnt bad back in the mid 80s but its a whole diffirent clsss of people now.

  48. Larry Beard says:

    In Response To Eleanor Weist
    Mrs Weist if you think Everett is a Shabby Town why don’t you move out of it.
    Your businesss is in Bedford and that would be a great place for you to move to.
    I personaly don’t care for your comments after growing up in Everett and going to school here.
    You have a complex about your self that you think you are better then the average person in Everett Borough.
    The parking meters allow the town fathers to keep the millage rate lower because they bring in approx 1 mill towards keeping the taxes lower in Everett.
    So you got a speeding ticket is why you have Attacked Our Good Police Force,Why don’t you suck it up and pay your fine for speeding and shut up about it. The officers of Everett interact with our young people trying to get them going the right direction in life,I know this for a fact. Officer Fletcher has made friends with my children during his time as a police officer in Everett. He is now making friends with my grand children in Everett and they look up to him and the other officers. Did he make a mistake Yes he did and he paid for it the same as you should pay for your speeding violation. I had my scanner on the night that you were stopped in Everett and I heard the call that your husband came to the traffic stop on you on East main Street.The call for assistance from the State Police was that your husband was acting up and the good officer did his job the way he is trained to do call for back up at the sign of danger.
    You claim to be a business person why don’t you grow up and start acting like one.
    I know you have lost any Business from my family and many of my friends.
    I checked in the open records of the District Judge Calhouns Ofc. You were clocked going 45.9 MPH in a posted 25 MPH Zone
    and looks as if you were given a break for speeding and arrested for a Obedience To Traffic Control Device.
    You were given a break for speeding and you keep up your crap about the the Town and Its Officers get a life lady.

  49. Eleanor Weist says:

    I have a comment about Everett Boro ; I wrote the letter to the editor several weeks ago & yes Everett is a tired shabby looking town . I live here & I don’t expect it to be getting any better . number 1 they have parking meters so you have to pay admission to come into town & when you do better watch your speed , I recieved a ticket for speeding I was going about 35 or less & who gave me the ticket , the policeman that was arrested in 2004 for a high speed chase on I 99 going 110 miles an hour is’nt he just a great example for giving out tickets , his excuse was he drove for about 6 miles & said he did’nt realize any police was behind him ,Isn’t he just a wonderful example to look up to ? Why is he employed in the boro ? I wanted to attend the boro meeting but I was politly told that was already over with & Could not be brought up again . Isnt officer Fletcher a wonderful example for all these young people to look up to? Also he was so afraid of my husband , he had to call for backup . If Everett wants to ever be on the map again the first thing they need to do is change the speed limit signs. These signs are just a speed trap . As far as the cross walk signs go , I stood at the foodliner for about 5 mins to be able to cross the street I don’t think anyone knows what a crosswalk is around here . As far as the law goes the signs are illegle unless you have a crossing guard hired to man them.

  50. FREE PRESS STAFF says:

    well seeing he does not get paid to be a council member i would have to predict the answer would be NO

  51. hdouglas72 says:

    First of all may i suggest extending spelling and english classes Tom? I think you meant to say thr deviates are breeding crime not breading it. I grew up in Everett back in the day and i had to walk those routes like everybody else. Theres always gonna be pervs no matter where you live. Hell my generation had to deal with popeye on his bicycle. I havent lived in everett for years and each trip i make there to the Union of framing shop I count my blessings. Town looks shabby and tired.

  52. Will Mr. Karns be able to attend council meetings through the work release program once he is incarcerated?

  53. Judy Hillegas says:

    Not that I think the signs are bad, but I stopped the other day WHERE THERE WAS NO CROSSWALK to allow Tom Cicala’s ex-wife and daughter to cross the road.

  54. Tom says:

    I would like to see a neighborhood watch in Everett . And of course better lighting in the darks spots on main street . there sure seems to be a lot of deviates hanging out and breading crime . When school starts I would love to see parents and business people outside along the walking routes . If it is obvious that predators and creeps are being seen, they will be much less likely to endanger our youths . In my younger days we had patrols and crossing guards there was a real presence of guardians on the walking route . This is a community responsibility not the councils. The School district can step up on this ..I don’t think our young children should be made to walk one and a half miles through the streets after school .just going down main street 1.2 miles you pass 13 streets 2 alleys, two major intersections a beer distributor 2 gas stations multiple bars and a hand full of people on the watch dog list.Not to mention the traffic dangers . We leave our youths open to too many possibilities . I believe we have a responsibility to get them closer to home after school .

  55. Mark McConnell says:

    If the local businesses give the loitering teenagers a job so they can advance their life and the life of their family, this would lower the occurrence of crime and nuisance. A new profitable growing business would be a start.

    Idle hands are the devil’s workshop.

  56. Tom Cicala says:

    The new reflector tape lines are looking good on main street.I look forward to the day all the crossing will have the new lines

  57. Tom Cicala says:

    First I want to thank the free press for this forum that is allowing me to make this post ..
    I AM PERSONALLY OFFERING A REWARD
    another crosswalk panel has been stolen . my daughter and her mother cross at the location where the most recent one was taken . I darn near lost my little girl and there is no doubt these panels do bring up awareness for motorists and pedestrians. no signs increases the danger for my children your children and people of all ages . now sooner or later someone is going to drop a dime on one of the Perps or get caught and I’m not sure they have done the math on how serious and what actual offenses they will be facing . I am easy to locate and contact , you know something you can collect this reward and do something good for your neighbors

  58. FREE PRESS STAFF- CAMERAMAN says:

    SOMEONE ALREADY DAMAGED THE NEW CROSSWALK PANELS IN EVERETT, A RED VEHICLE IS BLAMED FOR HITTING 6 OF THE PANELS THAT HAVE BEEN PLACED AT THE CROSSWALKS DUE TO IT BEING UNSAFE TO CROSS THE STREET IN EVERETT

  59. Tom says:

    Monday I stopped in to the borough office and exchanged emails with D.M.. It is my understanding IS that the borough is mobilizing volunteers from local churches that have agreed to assume the responsibility of putting out and in the Flash panels for the crosswalks . I look forward to seeing this in the very near future . kudos to the church organization volunteers that will help make this safety measure a reality . I believe the next step is there being shown the proper placement time location and procedure for each stop

    the reflective line / tape will be installed to the blacktop when weather permits , the surface must be prepared clean and ground temperatures need to be warms it will stick properly .

    I am satisfied with this explanation and believe it to be quite sincere.

  60. Tom says:

    my daughter was at a crosswalk in Everett the same crossing where near tragedy struck . she told me as she waited at the curb at a crosswalk and cars wouldn’t stop, she waited for a long stretch of no cars coming . enough is enough . id like to see the crosswalk panels put in place now . perhaps I am being selfish I want a couple panels up like now, even if its only where my daughter crosses .

  61. FREE PRESS STAFF- CAMERAMAN says:

    EVERETT BOROUGH COUNCIL MEMBER CHARLIE KARNS WAS SENTENCED TO 6-23 MONTHS IN JAIL FOR HIS SECOND DUI, HE REMAINS FREE ON BAIL PENDING APPEAL, WITH NO ALCOHOL PROVISION

  62. Tom Cicala says:

    just to follow up. I am pleased with Don Millers prompt action to secure the signs.

  63. Tom says:

    Any body hear when the Crosswalk FLASH panels will be put on the street . i know the Chief said the awareness campaign will be in april . I think the sooner we get the panels on the street the safe pedestrians will be ..

  64. FREE PRESS STAFF- CAMERAMAN says:

    i was thinking about veronica conklin see was making comments on facebook free press saying i could be sued for taking a pic of the plate, she seemed real upset about it, she ended up getting booted off facebook free press for accusing people of sexual assault and posting just bs to cause problems

  65. RGK says:

    Bet the name behind the plate is someone with influence. What do you think?

  66. RGK says:

    WOW ! And I’m sure there was plenty of room to park too. Life is too short not to pay attention to what you are doing. Randy did you happen to get the plate number and turn it in with the photo. I would have. Great job again on this story. Keep up the good work Randy !

  67. Tom says:

    SHOPPERS IN EVERETT STILL DONT GET THE POINT !! I see that Randy . Thank you for keeping the awareness up ..

  68. Tom Cicala says:

    Free press
    Thank you for making this video available to myself and the public.

  69. FREE PRESS says:

    mr. cicala,

    the next everett borough council meeting is january 10th at 7pm, maybe you should show up and talk to council

  70. Tom says:

    I would suggest the lines at the cross walk be repainted very bright and reflective also. I don’t see any reason to wait for flash panels to take action . Anything is better than what is currently on the streets . Signs warning of stiff fines for not stopping for pedestrians should be posted at the entries to town . I would support a citation campaign for those who do not stop . I would never consider approaching a cross walk without looking to see if a pedestrian is waiting to cross and of course already crossing .I would further suggest that only driver neglect would cause one to not notice or see people in the road way crossing . If motorists intentionally do not stop it should be called reckless endangerment that indicates intent and it should go without saying failure to yield right of way. I would further suggest that drivers be aware of any potential pedestrian looking to cross. I have seen drivers refuse to stop or attempt to pass over cross walk while pedestrians are still crossing .This Is what I feel contributed to my daughter being hit. If the borough police are under staffed than the state police need to step in and assist .We have speed traps, we should have pedestrian crosswalk traps .

  71. Kari says:

    Our dogs would have treated this car as an obsticle and taken us out of the crosswalk trying to get us around it. Thus, putting both in harms way. Not being able to see the reason for leaving the path of travel can be confusing and disorienting. Especially when there isn’t supposed to be anything there.

  72. Ashley says:

    Regarding the visibility of the crosswalks, they are discussing different things to use in the street so they can be more noticeable to oncoming traffic. I believe that something in the street at the crosswalks to slow cars down before they reach it, like a speed hump/bump, will be more efficient than reflectors alone which seems to be their main thinking path.

    Randy . I appreciate the footage . I was not able to attend this month . I am extremely concerned about this issue . I hope action will be expedient . I look forward to the School Districts discussion about student safety at crossings before and after school .

  74. FREE PRESS says:

    no we are not banned, we was unable to make it the last two months, will we be returning hopefully in december

  75. jimbob says:

    Hey where is the new borough council meeting?? Is the free press banned from the meetings now since the DUI report?? I always watch them.

  76. wondering says:

    MMMMM, Torrence on June 15, you pretty much made the same comment as me. I was just wondering if there was a mix up in the copying. No problem. Cause I wrote way back in February, and here it is June , and as said previously the sidewalks in front of Marteens as well as a few other areas are still in need of REPAIR.

  77. Torrence says:

    I believe I heard on the video that the cross walks as well as the cut outs that are for the handicap were looking pretty good throughout all this snow, but I think this meeting was prior to the big snowfall last received. I am sure everyone is trying their best with all we had. I just wanted to mention to those who did not have time to listen to the total meeting, that I beleive and if I am incorrect please say. That the cut out sections of the sidewalk were going to be the responsiblity of the homeowener that is connected to the side walk of which the cutouts are. And that it would be brought to the attention of the homeowners as well as the business that they should do this when needed. Also the info of how the snow is to be removed by the business owners on main street to help keep us all safe. That the owner will be responsible to put the extra snow that is on their property, like around the meters and planters onto the main street at certain times and it would be scheduled for Jason Foor Excavating to hall it away. For he is the person who had contracted with the board to keep it clean.Sounds good for me, and I am sure Many who have gone to town in the past will appreciate seeing this take effect, cause when we do shop in our town of Everett it is sometimes very dangerous to just get out of the car with the build up on the parking spots, that all year long we are to be putting money in the meter for. I just would like to add that it is sad to see the one man I have noticed on occasions who is in a wheel chair just trying to get from the red light headed past Marteen’s Restaurant. That is so uneven. who would be responsible for the repair of the concrete that is all broken or lifted making it unsafe. Not just there but in a varitey of different stores up and down Main street?

    Concerning Don and Jay doing separate goals at once, I have got to disagree. Yes, it would expedite things, but how unsafe! What would happen if Don rolled a mower and got pinned while Jay was on the other side of town hauling garbage? Who would be there to help him!? Having 2 or more people working together or close to one another creates safety–taking that away is stripping away their security.

  79. Jimbob says:

    Not to be unagreeable but actually the property owner is responsible for repair/replacement of sidewalks in front of their property on main street or anywhere within the borough. The only way I know this is because I have replaced several sidewalks.

  80. Bedford County Free Press says:

    the borough of everett would be responsible for repairs that need to be done in the borough

    and you are correct about the handicap ramps coming from the sidewalks to the road

    I would like to thank and commend Brenda and Kari for being advocates for the handicap. These girls are extraordinary. I cannot think of a more thoughtful way of them to express their concerns. Instead of them being the problem they offer to help to eliminate the problem. We indeed need more young citizens to look up to. I indeed hope that the borough council listens to their concerns and takes into consideration to resolve this dilemma. Let’s not just push the blame from one to another but actually come up with something feasible to help all the citizens of the
    ” little town that could” . To all concerned my hope is there is a resolution that can be expedited readily.
