Combined efford helped LaVale to get through the winter

To the Editor: The LaVale Civic Improvement Association would like to thank the residents and businesses of LaVale who helped clear the sidewalks of the salt, gravel and associated debris accumulated over the long, harsh winter.

We would also like to thank the Maryland State Highway Administration for their assistance
in arranging for its removal with streetsweeping equipment.

We also like to extend our thanks to the residents who cleared the sidewalks in front of their properties, and we especially want to extend our thanks to those individuals who helped clear the sidewalks of those who were unable or unwilling to clean the walks in front of their business or residence.

Also we wish to thank Allegany Aggregates for the generous donation of the material for resurfacing the walking track around the athletic field at Lions Field located on Braddock Road.

The material was spread by personnel and inmates from the Western Correctional Institution.

Not only did they provide the manpower for the project but also the large, heavy equipment necessary to spread and level the material
over the walking track surface.

Personnel from the correctional institution also cleared the dense overgrowth along the track and fence area near the walking track last year.

Also a note of thanks and gratitude should be given to Allegany County’s Dave Dorsey, from the Division of Planning Services, for his invaluable assistance in the acquisition of funds from Project Open space to repair and resurface the tennis courts located near the LaVale swimming pool and at Lions field.

Without the above listed groups and individuals, The LaVale community would surely not be such a great place not only for recreational
activities but also to live.

Paul J. Yockus, president LaVale Civic Improvement Association

  • Remember, we’re not immune to extinction

    I’d like to pose a theoretical scenario to Cal Thomas.

    If a medical specialist said, “Cal, you’ve got a serious physical problem. Do nothing and you’ll die soon. Follow my prescription, which involves certain life-style changes, and there’s a good probability you’ll live, even if your life may be a bit more constrained than now.”
