SOMEONE FROM BERNARD LORD OFFICE SHOULD WALK ACROSS THE STREET AND GIVE THE PEOPLE IN CHARGE A NEW FLAG???
I must give credit where it's due. The new editor of the letters to the editor has been printing my letters.
Brian Kemp was good and this new female is doing the same. Here's my letter but I'll add the pictures! Surprise...surprise...surprise...lol
Parts of city of Fredericton said to need a cosmetic lift
Yes, spring is here but I truly believe this city often forgets it's the capital of New Brunswick. I noticed that many buildings are flying the New Brunswick or Canadian flag. In my opinion, this is a very good gesture but often these flags are worn down and ripped to pieces.
The Human Resources building at the corner of Queen and Regent streets has a Canadian flag but the nice part is in the evening. It has a huge spotlight on the flag and it sure is a beautiful sight.
Why don't other buildings such as the Crowne Plaza (Lord Beaverbrook Hotel) follow the same lead?
All tall buildings should proudly fly their little flags in the evening with a spotlight.
The old York County Court House on Queen Street is a disgrace. They have the highest flag pole in the whole city but no flag.
I did voice my concern but to no avail.
Another ugly site is the flag pole which flies the Union Jack in Officer's Square. It looks as if the flag pole hasn't been painted in years. And I might add it's leaning to one side.
Could this be one of the reasons we need amalgamation of this city and outlying communities - so we can afford a can of paint?
Even the Irving Mainway on King street no longer flies the New Brunswick flag.
The final area for consideration is our famous New Brunswick Legislature.
This was my home for six months and there's not a better site from which to admire the dome in the evenings. It's beautiful.
These days, the dome doesn't show as much at night because of broken spotlights. The security staff added a huge ugly spotlight in the front and it takes the beauty away.
The National Assembly in Quebec did a fantastic job with its security system.
Once the lights are on, you can see the building for miles but not here in Fredericton.
Being the capital city of New Brunswick comes with responsibilities.
The tourist season is just around the corner and we should show visitors that we're proud of our city.
To the editor,
I haven’t wrote a letter to your paper in 3 years because you refuse to print letters that’s anti-irving!
I feel that I have no choice but to forward my views on your story on Abel Leblanc letter printed last week.
You wrote that he might end up in jail because he wrote a letter about the appointment of Tanker Mallley as Speaker of the House.
People in Saint John haven’t witness a MLA like Abel LeBlanc in decades.
He speaks his mind on any issue even if it’s against his own Party.
This is Abel’s style and 90% of the citizens in the city respect him for it.
I’m not going to write about all the good deeds Abel has done for the citizens in this area during his lifetime because I would need the whole paper.
I would rank Abel close to the great Lou Murphy who was loved by many people also.
If by chance? The Speaker of the House Tanker Malley takes action against Abel LeBlanc?
Well, if there was even a chance that the citizens would revolt? This will surely be the case!
Keep up the good work of speaking out Abel and all the citizens around this province are watching this issue very closely!!!
Every wondered if you were poor and you would like to go somewhere outside to have a few beers?
It’s almost an impossible task in the Capital.
I’ll use my case for an example.
Last Friday evening, an individual asked him if I wanted to have a few beers?
I went at the Liquor store and bought 18 beers.
My God, the liquor store sure reminds me of the frigate program. The place was full of bureaucrats getting their alcohol after a hard week of work.
While walking on King’s street, I noticed a police officer giving a fine to a homeless guy who was having a beer.
The police seem to be in full force once the welfare checks comes out. These poor soul ussualy drink Listerine during the month but once they get their money?
They buy real liquor and at the end they watch the police dump the beer on the ground.
I understand that you cannot drink in public on King’s street and I guess the fine is close to $200.00!
A few months ago, a friend of mine was caught drinking a beer in public and he might have to serve his time in prison because there’s no way in the world that he can afford the fine.
I was in court a few months ago to watch a court preceding and I noticed many citizens are telling the judge that they cannot afford to pay the huge fines.
Anyway? Back to my story?
I landed at the individual place and we enjoyed some beers. The individual suddenly had to leave so therefore I was struck with six beers.
I told the individual - Where the heck am I going to drink those beers?
You see the building that I live in don’t allowed alcohol inside the premises but of course I could sneak them in.
I had to locate a place to drink my beers.
Last Friday was a beautiful evening!
I remember when I was living in Saint John. I live in the Glenn Falls area. The house is no longer there.
I use to visit a lot of friends in the area such as these fine individuals.
That part of the City reminds you of living in the country.
I would take my dog Zeus and we would disappear in the woods.
My best spot was climbing this huge mountain.
Once there, I would enjoy the beautiful view over a few beers.
I love it especially during a fell moon.
You could see the area for miles and miles.
Ok…back to the Capital?
I started my little walk with my six pack and I had a very difficult task in finding a place to enjoy my beers.
I finally located a wonderful area.
It was near the Saint John River. I walked down a little bank and settle down. It was beautiful!
The river was so calm and you could see the reflection from the walking bridge and the homes on the river. It was very quiet.
Behind me was the church. They have huge spot lights on the building and it lights up for miles and miles.
The Legislature was also in sight but the Dome isn’t as bright as it used to be.
All you could hear was the seagulls mating across the river.
It was perfect!!!
My ADHD minds was relax and once in a while you can see a person jogging by in the dark….but there was a problem?
I was breaking the law I guess? If a police officer would have arrive?
I would have been fine $200.00!
I wasn’t bothering no one and it was a beautiful evening.
I wasn’t in the Glenn Falls area. I was in the Capital.
I drank four beers bought the empties with me.
I got lucky!!! I met an individual and finish the other beers over their place.
The bottom line is this. I know we can’t have people drinking all over the place. But consider yourself lucky that you have a car and you can escape to the country side and enjoy your relaxing period away from your trouble.
When I was working at the Shipyard? I used to travel all the time and found some very nice area to enjoy a few. < of course I had a sober driver >
But if you’re poor? There’s no way in the world that you can enjoy Mother Nature at its best!
If you have a home near a lake or a river with a patio? Consider yourself very lucky!
It’s just life I guess?
By the way? I was told by a few people not to write on this issue but I'm just giving out my viewa.
So let the condenm comments begin!!!!...lol
THE HEAVENS PRAISE YOUR WONDERS, O LORD, YOUR
FAITHFULNESS TOO, IN THE ASSEMBLY OF THE HOLY
( PSALM 89:5 * NIV )
Now in this complicated World we live in, we often over take
for granted simple things that are true blessings indeed!
However, when we stop and look at life through a child's eyes,
we sometimes become more aware of these blessings. So
today we will do just that through a message that I just received
from one of our Brother's In Christ, for out of the mouths of babes
sometimes comes great wisdom indeed!
After all; GOD PERFORMS WONDERS THAT CAN- NOT BE
FATHOMED, MIRACLES THAT CAN NOT BE COUNTED.
( JOB 5:9 *NIV )
The Seven Wonders Of The World!
A group of students was asked to list what they thought were
the present Seven Wonders of the World. Though there was
some disagreement, the following got the most votes:
1. Egypt's Great Pyramids
2. Taj Mahal
3. Grand Canyon
4. Panama Canal
5. Empire State Building
6. St. Peter's Basilica
7. China's Great Wall
While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one quiet
student hadn't turned in her paper yet, so she asked the girl if
she was having trouble with her list.
The girl replied, "Yes, a little. I couldn't quite make up my
mind because there were so many." The teacher said, "Well,
tell us what you have, and maybe we can help."
The girl hesitated, then read, "I think the Seven Wonders of
the World are:
1. to See
2. to Taste
3. to Touch
4. to Hear
She hesitated a little, and then added,
5. to Feel
6. to Laugh
7. and to Love
The room was so full of silence you could have heard a pin
drop. Those things we overlook as simple and "ordinary" are
truly wondrous. This is a gentle reminder that the most
precious things in life cannot be bought. God gave them to us.
Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect, it just means
you've decided to see beyond the imperfections. So
Charles, may you always be happy and see beyond. Amen.
With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
