The city pool is fine; don’t waste tax money on new one

To the Editor:

Athens needs a new pool like we need a new marble sculpture of Obama in drag the size of the Statue of Liberty straddling Court Street. Did anyone notice (in the June 23 article about the proposed further local government looting) that the current pool cost the city $7 million in 1972 dollars?!

Barking dogs can be life savers for people who are under attack

To the Editor:

First let me say that I completely agree with the letters protesting the anti-dog-barking ordinance proposed. I would like to add another reason that people should stay closer to dogs.

It would be nice to have go-to cop agency for online scams

To the Editor:

There ought to be some law-enforcement agency that folks can send copies of emails they get from weird places and people. I am talking about all those fishy emails about free money (Nigeria is not the only transgressor state, the U.K. is right there with Nigeria), but also threatening emails, emails from people wanting to do things to or with your computer, and things like that.

The Athens Voice submission last week expressing annoyance at the lack of free activities for youth in the county might consider options available at the Athens County Public Libraries.

Dog warden should practice what he preaches at home

To the Editor:

Regarding the cover story about excessive dog barking in Athens County (The NEWS, June 26), it was refreshing to note that Athens County Dog Warden Jeff Koons seems to have changed his tune about dog barking and now admits that it is the owners' behavior that might be the problem and not the dogs'.

Common sense and empathy important when riding or driving

To the Editor:

In response to Todd Swearingen's letter addressing bicycling etiquette (The NEWS, June 1), or the lack thereof by some of the cyclists in Athens, I'd like to add my two cents. Although I've never ridden even close to 500 miles in a given week, I have ridden my bike a lot.

Cyclists should welcome all types of legal users on bike path

To the Editor:

I am writing this due to the comments about etiquette for the bike path. I find it sad that a fellow bike rider would make such comments about people enjoying the trail. I have been riding the bike trail for many years, and I find it's a wonderful thing that so many different kinds of people enjoy using the trail.

Awareness of vehicles, whether bikes or not, is imperative

To the Editor:

There have been a number of comments in "The Athens Voice" recently regarding bicycle riders on and off the Hockhocking-Adena Bikeway. A bicycle is my preferred mode of transport for both local errands and vacation trips.
