Bee Heard

.Why do the schools in Lancaster not promote qualified people in the school system instead of hiring people from the outside?

. How about we turn the Erie County Home into a rehab center for the shortage that there is for beds for people recovering from addiction? How about using the old Children’s Hospital for a drug abuse addiction recovery center? There is a shortage of beds in the county, so why don’t we spotlight this along with the medical corridor? Erie County’s ECMC detox department is a very low-funded facility and needs to be updated. Please do what you can to talk to your legislators and senators about where is the money that was earmarked for this drug addiction epidemic.

.I just returned from voting at Lancaster High School. There was absolutely nowhere to park. We ended up parking in some student space at the end. There were no provisions made, and no one seemed to care that there was nowhere to park. That’s very bad for a budget vote.
