City’s action required with Hillcrest house

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

I live on Hillcrest Avenue and I was surprised at city Councilman William Panella’s position on the 315 property.

The mayor may have violated protocol, shame on him, but his intentions are honorable.

At the November council meeting, other residents and I presented our concerns about the disposition of the 315 property. We pointed out the “broken window theory” as it applies to residential properties.

I am aware of the consequences of permitting the action to continue, but I’m equally aware of what will happen if it is thwarted.

There are already two if not three homes that will be potentially put on the market or shuttered as a result of the events at 315.

If a precedent must be set, let it be now.

Are you concerned enough about the Heartbleed bug on the Internet to change all of your social media and website passwords?

Yes. It’s always a good idea to change passwords regularly anyway. I just have so many, I’m not sure where to start.
No. From what I’ve read, companies are still trying to figure out how to fix the flaw. The bad guys will just have access to my NEW passwords, too.
Not sure, but I blame Al Gore. He invented the Internet, right? How’s he going to get us out of this mess?
