                         Thanks, Adam, for posting the News Release.
What I'd like everyone to be aware of also is this: Not everyone sees these 
news releases. They are not automatically emailed to everyone, and are not up 
on the StarMetro page. In fact, this new schedule will only be published ON THE 
INTERNET  "by 6pm on Sunday, July 31"-- apparently there will be no printed  
material with the specifics handed or available to customers UNTIL  MONDAY 
MORNING!! And even then, my understanding is that the fliers will  only be 
distributed on the routes effected-- so if that's not your  first bus... guess 
you'll be reading about the changes while you're  standing on the side of the 
road somewhere... 
We all know a large percentage  of bus riders do not have internet access at 
If a service you used-- not optionally, but to maintain your employment-- was 
changed without notice, wouldn't you be upset??
  Please COMPLAIN, if not for the changes to a bus system you may or may not 
use, then for the injustice of jerking people around. Let's hope they would 
never pull something like this with other city services... In fact, let's make 
certain they don't!!
  Delores Downy is a Citizen Advocate for the Mayor and City Commission. She 
may be reached after 9am at 891-8200.
  While the Mayor and City Commission are "on break" until August 15th, they 
apparently DO check in. Hopefully the volume of messages on their desks will 
compel them to act positively.
  You may also contact M'LIsa Ingram at MLisa.Ingram@xxxxxxxxxx or 891-8179; 
she will return to the office Tuesday, August 2.
