You're right Dan. They didn't even want to be there 24/7, just during the day. <br> <br> Nobody in the neighborhood said it would always be easy having a daycare that provides services for children with no other place to go, but they all were willing to make a few sacrifices for those kids and make them feel welcomed and not a burden on everyone around them. <br> <br> I think your presents in City Hall sent the opposite message about our neighborhood and how accepting it is of a diversity of people. <br> <br> Those kids were not more burdensome then the college kids that lived their before, and certainly no more noisy or destructive. <br> <br> Is it the right place? Maybe not, I don't know. But I think the attitude should of been one of welcome, not prejudgment. <br> <br> As for the pool issue, they said at the meeting they would be taking care of that, yet you still didn't voice support.<br> <br> If the minutes for this meeting show contrary to what
I am saying, then I will apologize. But until the minutes contradict what I witnessed with my own eyes and ears, that is what I will believe until then.<br> <br> Best,<br> <br> _DJA<br> <br> <br><br><b><i>Dan Carscallen <email@example.com></i></b> wrote:<blockquote class="replbq" style="border-left: 2px solid rgb(16, 16, 255); margin-left: 5px; padding-left: 5px;"> Donovan says:<br>" . . . he didn't exactly want them living next door did he?

for the neighborhood. Debbie Gray is<br>right to ask, though. Where is a good fit? Personally, had not the<br>Moscow Charter School kicked Turning Point out of their original<br>location, that would have continued to be a good fit -- Ample access,<br>near the school/playground, all that good stuff.<br><br>Is it a good fit next to me? Well, let's put it this way: I have a<br>relatively hard time buying shirts with long enough sleeves. Sometimes<br>I'll buy a shirt that has sleeves that fit, but then I wash it and the<br>sleeves are too short. So I roll the sleeves up and wear the shirt<br>anyway. So that's kind of what Turning Point is, to me. It works, but<br>there's always something better out there. It's just a matter of<br>finding it. So you wear the shirt with the sleeves rolled up 'til you<br>find one that does fit. Or you could hire someone to put longer sleeves<br>on it. I applaud the new owners of Turning Point for making the back<br>yard safer by
removing the pool, and actually giving the kids room to<br>play out back.<br><br>But, honestly, it doesn't matter what I say. Donovan only hears/reads<br>what he wants.
