Snow left on sidewalks creates inconvenience

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

I am writing to urge people to please remove the snow from their street sidewalks in front of their houses.

I fight my way every time it snows to pick up my son from George Washington.

I realize that it is not the greatest thing to do, but if everyone did this it would make life a lot easier for people to walk in front of our houses.

I have heard that in some places there are fines if residents do not remove the snow within 24 hours of a snowfall. Does such ordinance exist in New Castle? Is it enforced?

We should do our part and clean our walks.

It’s been a unique week on the marriage front. Actress Jodie Foster married her longtime girlfriend, while a lesbian trio that wed last year, who bill themselves as a “throuple,” have announced they are expecting. What’s your take on alternative unions?

I’m against it. I believe in one man, one woman.
I’m OK with it. As long as they’re adults, they can marry whoever they want.
A lesbian “throuple?” Really? SMH.
