We have waited six weeks for a response! Nothing! Where are you people of power and influence? You promised and failed to deliver.
The warm weather is here, and the beggars are out in full force. The same lady with backpack and crutches is back on the median at Ashlan and Clovis avenues every afternoon with a sign asking for money, and this one is presentable in appearance. Across the street daily, a guy with a professional sign asking for help to feed and care for his family, also presentable.
Then there are the homeless on Blackstone and Bullard, Blackstone and Herndon avenues, and just about every busy street corner in Fresno. The homeless, the mentally challenged, those with substance abuse are on the streets with overladen stolen grocery carts with their belongings in not just one cart, but two or even three with the dog asleep on the sidewalk’s edge!
There are times when the sign is there, the carts are there, their debris is left, and no beggars. Our eyes are sore from looking at this plight. Fresno is the face of the Valley! Let’s have some pride!
Never miss a local story.
