June 20 Letter: Good track record for Midway

Last weeks' Hugs and Slugs comment on handicapped accessibility drew a sharp response from Midway resident John Coburn.

Re: Slugs, June 13, 2013

 

What’s with slamming all of Midway over handicapped accessibility?

Hugs to:

McMynn’s Insurance and Hardware

Post Office

Midway Hotel – newly renovated handicap washroom

Library and Pharmacy

Bored Room Bistro – fully accessible built to 2005 code

McMynn’s Grocery

Arena

Dentist Office

Village Office

Medical Clinic

Blood Lab

Mile Zero Museum

Community Garden

 

Slugs to:

The Community Centre (lets get a grant!)

 

Almost there:

The Spot

Mile Zero Restaurant

 

Unknown

Mile Zero Motel

 

Looks like a pretty good track record for little Midway.  I wonder if other communities can match us.
