My thoughts about bikes on the sidewalks:
I worked for many years as a supervisor on many job sites. I learned that the best way to get my underlings to perform their best was for me to lead by example.
I would like to admonish the Everett policeman who rides his bicycle on the sidewalk (every day) for almost running me over without even saying “excuse me” or even aknowledging the fact that I had to jump out of his way to avoid being struck. Had he been a citizen, I would have clouted him with my cane. But, since he had a gun, I chose instead to write this letter.
No, he was not on his way to a crime scene, as he sat at the light and waited to cross.
Also, to the little old lady who allows her dog to poo on the sidewalk at Hoyt and Hewitt nearly everyday, shame on you. I pity your animals and any children that you care for. And, the same to all the dog owners near Clark Park for the same reason.
There just seems to be no safe place for the elderly to walk in Everett.
