In Your Opinion: Planters aren't worth complaining about

The Daily Star

---- — Planters aren’t worth complaining about

I address this letter to my very good friend Tom Oliver concerning the new planters in the Dietz Street/Ford Avenue parking lot. 

You’re concerned, Tom, that your tax money is being used for this purpose. To me, when I drove down and checked the lot after your letter, I felt that it gave some color and class to a lot that needed something. Yes, there is some work to finish; however, when completed, it will be very nice. You’re correct, the plows will have to be careful; so what?

There are real problems in the world, Tom. This is not one of them. Write a letter once in a while showing a glass half full, not half empty. 

Keep up the great work, city of Oneonta!
