Try helping your neighbors instead of shaming them

February 14, 2010

After reading about Greg Baranoski and his "public shaming" of his neighbors who haven't shoved their sidewalks yet ("In Bolton Hill, tales of the unshoveled," Feb. 12), I am so very grateful that I don't live in Bolton Hill. Shame on you, Mr. Baranoski, for wasting your energy being so nasty and negative. Why don't you check on those neighbors and make sure they are OK? Organize a shovel brigade and get those walkways done. Shoveling 4 feet of snow is dangerous for all but the young and fit. Many of your neighbors might be trying to find someone to hire to shovel for them -- better than ending up in the emergency room with a heart attack. Get your priorities straight.
