Police Station, Etc.
Regarding the Feb. 11 editorial, "Town Gives Self New Possibilities":
The lot on Pennsylvania Avenue makes some great sense as a place for the town of Southern Pines' new police station, just because it's right next to the fire station.
And in most other places, they often share the same lot anyway, when the lot is large enough to accommodate the buildings anyway. While it's sad for the Farmers' Market to go, it really didn't look like it was doing that well anyway.
But my idea is something that everyone could appreciate -- how about a new post office, since the darned thing's over 30 years old anyway, not to mention that it's getting some cracks in the ceilings and just looks outdated in general.
The only thing worth saving off it is the plaque commemorating its commission by "the Gipper" himself. I hope that the council keeps it in mind. Need I say the size of my shoe to grab their attention if they don't?
Being a businessman, it's frustrating to be without my Wall Street Journal on my doorstep in the morning with my coffee. Which is the reason I canceled my subscription. If you can't get The Journal before breakfast, why bother having it in the first place?
