Give them a seat

June 11, 2008 - Heather Ziegler
Did anyone happen to ride through downtown Wheeling on Sunday afternoon? If you rode past the Intermodal Center on Main Street perhaps you noticed about a dozen or more people sitting and standing on the sidewalk. Obviously they were waiting for the Greyhound bus since there is no public bus service on Sunday. There were older men, women with young children and an assortment of other ages and sexes sprawled out on the sidewalk in that heat. Why can't there be some benches installed on the outside of the building on Main Street since the bus station was not open to allow people to sit inside? And the trash on the street on Sunday was terrible. I know it was probably left over from the events at the waterfront on Saturday and it was cleaned up on Monday. There are benches on South Street/Water Street behind the intermodal that are rarely used. Maybe they could be put to better use in front of the parking garage. Just a thought.
