To the Times of Ti:
It seems that there is a great deal of criticism of our Ticonderoga highway department. Someone is always wanting to set up a committee to check on them or is handing out some punishment for a minor infraction.
The local citizens have forgotten about the long hours put in by these men during all the snow we had last winter. We thought they did a great job keeping roads clear. Also, forgotten is all the work done during Hurricane Irene.
Does anyone realize there are only nine men to take care of the miles of roads in our community? This is not all they have to do. There are a multitude of other tasks to be performed by them.
We wonder how these critical people would like to get a phone call at one or two o’clock in the morning on a cold and stormy night to go to work. They get up and go at this time with no idea when they will get back to their bed.
Some of these critical people should remember the old saying that goes something like this – “Walk ye in another’s moccasins for a mile before you judge.”
