shadowjade 3 weeks ago on Page contest coming to an end at library

Well, you've got a library that reopened without its heart and soul - the former employees - and it has the added detriment of ridiculously high fines and short loan periods. On top of that, the children's programs and summer reading are pretty much non-existent compared to the former quality.

This deadly combo means the majority of its former patrons still prefer the White Salmon library... and avoid the Hood River library like the plague.

Suggestions: - Get rid of the creep-buzz-zoid. - Rehire all former employees still willing to return. - Repeatedly retrain the newbies until they comprehend that they're there for REAL CUSTOMER SERVICE. - Cease trying to pretend it's a high-class winery and BE a living library... not a zombie shell of its former glory.

Good. It was pretty darn obvious it was a crooked vote, by unethical people, who have NO willingness to abide the will of the people who voted them in. It's time to remove them from City Council... and ban them from any power whatsoever.

How about we keep it natural and restrict access to only those who were born here AND whose parents were born here?

If it bothers the people in the chicken coop condos, please, by all means, let the trains idle there all you want. THAT's who/what we want to go away!

... you could always require them to put an active, working mill back. I'm sure the will-never-be-REAL-locals that are whining about this would just LOVE that. ;)

I love how he's apparently been approved for living right near both a church and a school, and he'd have to pass right by them to even enter or leave his residence. And a bus stop right there at Eliot and Eby. And several convenient apartment complexes with insufficiently supervised children...

It's time to run these wealthy crooks and NEVER-will-be-locals town-thieves OUT of our town. They want a trashy huge complex right on our port for their tourists, but they can't accept that the majority of the REAL locals want REAL stores that have products REAL people actually need and CAN buy locally!

Wow, I'm impressed. Someone actually LISTENING to the community for once! Such a rarity in these parts, nowadays.

Extraordinarily sad news for Hood River, as the will-never-be-locals continue their destruction of our previously gorgeous community.
