How is it that the trend seems to be to molly-coddle a social set who made bad choices and now another set -- the opportunists who see dollar signs and present warnings of a costly endeavor if we attempt to fight their proposal?
The mayor of our city does not want this. It seems that Plaistow is not jumping for joy either. It is not the thing that conjures up colorful ideas for billboards welcoming outsiders to our city. We would love to see Haverhill regain the bustle and business of days gone by. It has been a struggle and we sometimes grow impatient. That is human nature. But a business with the euphemistic claim of being an “educational clinic” among other things is a far cry from a step in the right direction.
It is disheartening to think city money might have to be spent in an attempt to keep this from happening. But let us hope that we can win against a screwed-up law that they claim gives them that right. Then again, I wonder exactly where they get the confidence that they will always win. Just wondering!
