I wonder if the recent pedestrian death will give them any reason to
reconsider.  I imagine not, as this feels like one of those plans which
having been announced, is going ahead no matter what.

I am afraid Star Metro is deadly serious about the 2010 plan. 

At the last show and tell a month ago Star Metro had 5 easels set up with
maps of the city and blue and red dots representing old and new bus stops. 

 

For those who can't hear or don't have the time to pay them a visit there is
the phone number or email address.

Star Metro must not be very serious about this,  How are you going to be
able to hear what is being said at the plaza?

I don't like the times of these sessions, I'm calling it right now, b/s.
Because they must know that this is a serious issue for the visually
impaired. common sense would tell them that most people during the first
session will be getting ready for work, or at work when it takes place, and
the second session is no better, because they know that again most will be
getting off work, or still at work, when it also takes place. I'M not sure
if these people really get it.   Well... we have what we have, we will just
have to get there some way, some how.    
 

I'm glad to be your humble and obedient servant,

Choose ye this day whom you will serve.  If YHWH be Elohim, then serve him,
with all of your heart.  However, if Baal be your god, then serve him.  As
for me, and my house.  We choose to serve YHWH!

The late Bishop Joe O Patterson told a story long ago, when I was a small
child.  about the show down, between Elijah, and the 450 false prophets of
Baal. He shared with us how Elijah, stood, and told the false prophets to go
on ahead,and call their god first.   Because they had a much larger program.
He talked about how they had 450 participants to introduce. Elijah was so
sure of YHWH, he with confidence said, that he only had one.  Elijah also
reminded them, that they had to drag their fake god up the mountain side on
an ox cart.  Elijah also announced to the world, that his Elohim would be
there when he arrived.  He said mockingly, you go on ahead.  Heck, I will
even let you have prime time.  I'M going to take a nap, and when you guys
finish your foolishness, wake me up.  Go ahead now, take your best shot.
Bishop Joe O Patterson
A blessed memory

This week is the time to voice concerns or questions about proposed bus
stops in
StarMetro's Nova2010 plan.
Two listening sessions will allow riders to see maps of 738 bus stops, also
known
as "star stops." The first session will be from 7 to 9 a.m. Thursday at C.K.
Steele
Plaza, followed by a second session from 4 to 6 p.m.
The current system has 1,052 bus stops citywide. Nova2010, which is designed
to create
more routes that won't need to go through the downtown plaza, has 738 bus
stops;
473 are currently in use.
According to the city, the new stops are for routes that are not currently
available,
such as on portions of Orange Avenue and Blair Stone Road.
StarMetro Executive Director Ron Garrison said the listening sessions are
not a requirement.
They are an extra step toward reaching out to riders, he said.
"But if the customers have a better idea that better serves the public at no
additional
costs," Garrison said, referring to the stops, "we can incorporate those
into the
plan."
The plan is slated to roll out in July 2011.
Since it was revealed, some residents expressed concerns regarding the
plan's impact
on seniors and those with disabilities. The plan includes eliminating some
routes,
reducing trips throughout neighborhoods and changing the distance between
stops from
one-quarter mile to half a mile.
"It's ridiculous," said Ollie Cue, a 75-year-old Tallahassee resident who's
been
riding the bus for six years.
