Memo to wife: Don't ask me for a land-use variance

To the editor:

For the last few months, I've been rather amused by the amount of phone calls I get every time Randy Kuhn of the Washington Township Zoning Commission is quoted in your paper.

You see, my name is Randy Kuhn also, but I own Pictures Plus and am not a part of the zoning commission. I have close friends that I assumed should know this, and was surprised to find out they still thought it was me.

I had business associates that I was certain would realize I'm not on the zoning commission, yet they didn't. However, I didn't plan to do anything about it. That is until my wife was reading your paper the other morning and called to ask me when I'd joined the zoning commission. My wife!


At that point, I figured it was too much to assume that people don't realize that there are two Randy Kuhns.

So, I'd like to go on record as saying there are indeed two Randy Kuhn's in the town of Waynesboro, Pa. One is on the Zoning Commission and is quoted often in your paper. The other owns Pictures Plus, and would be thrilled if you would give his business equal time.

Since that probably won't happen, I will hope you run this letter and let my friends, associates and wife know that I am not on the zoning commission and will keep all opinions regarding zoning to myself.

Thank you for your help in this rather confusing issue.

For kids' sake, please stop for the school buses

To the editor:

I am writing this letter to plead with the residents of Washington County to please stop for all Washington County school buses when children are being loaded and unloaded.

I have had three instances, two of them within the last two weeks, of people not stopping for the school bus.

I live on a very busy road and I must cross the street to put my child on the bus. Last week someone blew right past the bus while it was stopped and loading about eight children. Fortunately one of the children's parents is a state trooper and he witnessed this incident and gave this person a ticket.

Just today, as I attempted to cross the street when the bus was stopped to pick up my child from a day at school, someone in a cream-colored luxury car drove right by. I was waving my arms at this person to warn them to stop and they failed to do so.

My child's bus driver says that this happens all the time.

This is very disturbing to me and I have never nor will I ever feel comfortable letting my child cross the street alone to get on the bus.

Please people, these are our children. It is a law to stop for the school bus and if you don't it is a $250 fine.

I don't know whether people are blatantly refusing to abide by the law or are just not paying attention.

Please wake up.
