To the Editor:
(Plain Press, May 2011) In regard to the “Letter to the Editor” written to the Plain Press by Frank Caffery, Mr. Caffery seems to have his information a little mixed up.
First of all, most of the seniors are very capable of crossing the street by themselves, but if a parking lot were to be put across the street from the senior center at 9300 Lorain Avenue, we are sure there would be a plan for a light or a crossing guard to see that the seniors would get across Lorain Avenue safely. By the way, there are a lot more than ten (10) parking spaces available for the center’s visitors.
Furthermore, the center has no problem feeding the many seniors who attend the lunch program. There are many activities available to the seniors to participate in, which many of them do. By the way, Mr. Caffery, we seniors are not as fragile as you seem to think we are, we have weathered many a storm in our lives, so crossing a street is certainly no challenge and another thing, Mr. Caffery, the reason the other centers are closing is mostly related to the economy and the lack of funding not because the West Side Community House was built at 9300 Lorain Avenue. We know that Mr. Caffery likes to see his rants in print because this is not his first “Letter to the Editor”.
