Ashamed of city, proud of writer

Dear Editor,

I am ashamed of our city council for approving use of our community center for a meeting of Harley Davidson riders at the request of a Harley dealership. Can any business use the community center for advertising? This is an issue that ought to be clearly addressed.

Some are asking these days, “Whose community center is it anyway?” Well, it belongs to those of us who pay taxes toward it. There are those among us who feel that motorized vehicles should be regarded as tools, not toys. That noise and bright lights are pollution. That the community center was built for artful expression, physical health, and gathering of citizens.

As for Steve Smith: I know him only from having done business with him. He is polite, efficient, knowledgeable in his trade, and an environmentalist. How dreadful that people would use words like “harass,” “smear,” and “bigotry” loosely when a man is fine enough to use the written word to beg respect for his town and his nation’s birthday.
