Darlene Shepherd: ‘We need people to help’

To the editor:

Driving home from work and the grocery store, I can’t help but notice the amount of fire hydrants that are buried in snow with our recent amount of snowfall.

I don’t have one near my house, but would love to shovel it out if I did, as I am capable and it might save my house someday.

There are senior citizens and handicap people unable to get out and do this.

I recently received my real estate property tax and noticed I am paying for public welfare, and Craig Fire/Rescue. Where does this money go? Can’t it pay someone that needs employment to shovel fire hydrants, or can’t we use community service people for this job?

I do believe we need to help our truly needy people.
