LETTERS FROM THE ISLAND: Scouting out services on the Isle


Niagara Gazette — As fine a job as the state does with Buckhorn Park, it can always use a little tidying up. We thought briefly about whacking weeds at the roundabout, while various governmental agencies beat around the bush as to whose responsibility it is, but by now, we can’t imagine what may have taken refuge in The Circular Jungle and we might never see the kids again.

Anybody else has any ideas, we’ll pass ‘em along.

The thing is, the whole notion of Scouts is to foster civic responsibility and concern for others. On a recent trip, we both struggled our suitcases up and down a Fucillo-sized flight of stairs while a young, strong relative sat there, oblivious, tapping some electronic gadget. Bet he was never in Scouts.

Come visit. We’ll tie some neckerchiefs.
