Re: “Showing Colors

Race...it’s unfortunate but it happens in just about every state, city, and town. However in Verona I don't think it’s the big issue. I have lived in Verona for several years and what I see to be the big issue is the structure of our council. This story should have been about how poor of a job some council members do their job, I mean come on who knows where our Mayor is and what’s really going on with council's agenda. Their lackadaisical attitude about Verona forced some residents to try to make Verona a better place. There should be no fingers pointed at them for trying to make Verona a safer place. With a limited amount of police presence (I do respect and commend all of the police officers efforts by the way) the community needed to step up.

I have been a reader of the CP for a long time and this is the first time I couldn’t believe they would write such a lopsided story. What really shocked me was the one picture of a slur sprayed on the “public sidewalk”. I guess public means in the middle of the woods where kids hangout.

And something tells me that both been sprayed painted there for many many years. I’m not saying its O.K. that it’s there but what I’m saying is the media can put a spin on the truth. I wish the author would have did some more research before writing a story, but I guess that’s what you get from a paper who has more ads for in house “massages” than real true stories. Maybe one day a real paper can do the right story about Verona.
