dear Chip,

Unfortunately, despite Herculean efforts on the part of many in the community, 
I think the recent hearings are a smoke screen--trying to pretend they do care 
and are aware and committed to do something about our concerns.

  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,

      Zechen Elder Daniel Ben Moshe,
      B'ni Yahshuah Synagogue Of Broward County,
      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 
      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
      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.
