  1. Mark Lalonde was my brother in law. All I can say it that he is missed by all his family and friends. His wife and son I know are still going through a rough patch with him not around.

    Mark was a guy who would be there to help when asked, yes even come and have a chat about work life goals and future. We all miss him.

  2. The accessibility committee should look into the sidewalk travel by wheelchairs. I drive my power chair around now and have been caught several times were the path takes me to no ramp off. Never mind the bumps. There are still some destinations with unsafe or non existing doors

  3. Since I am getting the “Sorry, you are not allowed to preview drafts.” error when trying to look at the older post I am going with the info I saw when I checked the doppler today.

    Reading the doppler today I saw the post about Mark Lalonde, I did not know this person, however, any death should be held with reverence. Post about the loss of a person, someone’s loved one should not, in my opinion, be cheapened by the attempt to detract from the information of the post itself. Mark Lalonde was a person, someone’s loved one; someone’s son, brother and father. Not a segway to another issue altogether. There are better places to attempt to get other issues more attention.
