A little courtesy

Have you crossed the West Side bridge lately? If not, check it out.

Vito Martucci has taken a home that should have been condemned and made it one of Connellsville's finest. He bought the property in 1971 and started to work on it with family and friends.

Last summer, Martucci had heavy equipment come in and straighten the hillside by the river. He had tons of dirt and many man hours put in. He planted grass and shrubbery on that hillside. He put in a beautiful fence and a flagpole. You could see him with his straw hat early in the morning and late at night.

After all his work on the hillside, people would still walk across it with their boats and rafts, trampling the new grass and leaving rubbish along the way.

Let's respect his property as well as others. We all want Connellsville to be a beautiful place to live and visit. We have many beautiful homes and businesses here. We just need to stop and look around. I'm sure you will find them.
