Bullying, threats pressured shelter to maneuver

I wish to take the time to let of us understand how damaging sending a flyer round Jerome Park with my title and document on it might have been.

To begin with, this might have put my restoration in jeopardy. Nevertheless, I’ll say I’m grateful for my Greater Energy and the help group I’ve so I don’t have to choose up, it doesn’t matter what.

Second, I’ve a status I’ve in-built Morgantown advocating for people who’re much less lucky than others or myself. It’s damaging not solely to my status, however to additionally my 11-year-old daughter and to the inhabitants of people I used to be making an attempt to assist. Stigma is actual factor.

I’m somebody with a previous and, sure, it isn’t a ravishing one, nevertheless it doesn’t outline who I’m as we speak. Your hatred towards me for opening a warming shelter in Jerome Park has actually proven what sort of neighborhood Jerome Park really is. We knew the shelter couldn’t be there as a result of the threats that had been made to the pastor, the unsheltered inhabitants and myself by the oldsters that stay on this neighborhood.

Those of you who performed half in defining me as an individual must be ashamed of yourselves. You haven’t any thought the guilt and disgrace I carry over my previous. Simply to be very clear, I’ve not been in bother for six years. The information you posted occurred six years in the past. I’ll pray for every of you, and I forgive you as a result of that makes me the individual I’m as we speak.

For those of you who cyberbullied me, simply know that 19% of people that have been bullied on-line commit suicide. Take into consideration that earlier than you go after your subsequent goal.

For those of you who supported what I used to be making an attempt to do, thanks — I admire you a lot.

Assist Bartlett Home and warming shelter

I’m so grateful that our native homeless shelter, Bartlett Home, has agreed to increase the variety of beds on chilly nights this winter. That that is occurring in any respect is thanks to 2 Morgantowners who persevered, and who must be an instance to all of us.

When many people had all however given up on a winter warming shelter, Jennifer Powell and Dani Ludwig saved the imaginative and prescient alive, advocating strongly and broadly. Now, there’s a tentative settlement for Bartlett Home to open a temperature-dependent shelter in Hazel’s Home’s sobering middle, with funding from the town and county.

Like communities all throughout the nation, Morgantown continues to battle with an absence of inexpensive housing and with the a number of epidemics of poverty, drug use dysfunction and untreated psychological sickness. There aren’t any easy options, or different locations would have solved this. What I admire about Morgantown is that we preserve making an attempt, hopefully studying from errors, not giving up.

My understanding is that the shelter will likely be open when the temperature is projected to dip beneath 40 levels (when hypothermia happens).

Key to success is making the shelter simply accessible to of us, lots of whom aren’t trusting of conventional organizations. By making the choice early within the afternoon and getting the phrase out broadly, we get the most individuals to security. By creating each a welcoming and a safe surroundings, we’ll extra possible see them return on chilly nights and may join them to wanted companies.

I encourage everybody to help Bartlett Home — observe them on social media, donate, volunteer and supply suggestions, as it really works to shortly and successfully present this important service.

Belated ‘thanks’ to a Good Samaritan

On Dec. 27, 2009, at twilight, I used to be hit by a automobile on the intersection of College Avenue and the Westover bridge. After this unlucky assembly, I attempted to face. A person got here as much as me and stated, “Keep down. An ambulance is coming.” He remained with me till it arrived.

I by no means did get this man’s title, however I hope he’s studying this. Thanks, type sir.

The brand new and improved mailbox in Dellslow?

A number of months in the past, I bemoaned “the Disappearing Drive-by Mailbox” on the Dellslow Submit Workplace and mentioned how essential that field was for the handicapped, moms of young children and older folks. This was after I had known as “all of the powers that be” to complain, with out success. Later, I reported how Mooney’s workplace returned my name assuring me {that a} “new and improved field could be forthcoming.” I assumed it will be a drive-by field; improved by maybe being decrease for simpler entry or perhaps the excessive curb could be gone.

I now consider the drive-by field has been changed by the sturdy little field put in proper subsequent to the primary sidewalk entrance to the Dellslow Submit Workplace. This walk-up field is lower than half the dimensions of the drive-by field. The tiny new field will fill shortly — or not, since patrons are out of their automobiles and simply 5 extra steps will take them contained in the constructing.

I name the brand new little field “sturdy.” The slot for the mail is slender and the gauge of steel appears far larger than the previous drive-by field. You would put a half dozen letters in that previous field with only one shove, however now it would take a half dozen makes an attempt to mail those self same letters within the “improved” field. The nuts fixing the brand new field to the cement walkway are spherical and basically wrench-proof.

This sturdy little field is “new” however the “improved” half, as Mooney’s consultant stated, could relate to its safety relatively than its utility. It seems constructed for the streets of Chicago or New York — not the serene environs of Dellslow, the place post-mistresses inside by no means appear rushed and all the time have a smile and a sort phrase for patrons.

They’re the epitome of pleasant service by U.S. Postal Service workers, and if requested, they’ll let you know that they don’t know why the “powers that be” took away the drive-by postal field. It simply occurred!
