W-B Public Works Dept. needs accountability

More numbers are not adding up for Wilkes-Barre's gas usage at its Department of Public Works garage. Set up a street camera; it records 24 hours a day with date and time displayed.

And who is in charge or responsible down there? Fire the person and get someone else in there.

Bravo to Wilkes actors for ‘Godspell' production

Recently, four of my friends and I attended the play Godspell that was put on by Wilkes University students. We enjoyed the performance immensely and encourage others to see it.

I commend the very talented cast, director, musical director, choreographer and all of those behind the scenes. Congratulations to all of you for giving us an enjoyable evening.

Godspell will be shown again at 8 tonight, 8 p.m Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Dorothy Dickson Darte Center.

I have seen many of the productions by the college and have never been disappointed. I'm looking forward to many more in the future.

Keep up the good work.

Video cameras at pumps can track use properly

May I suggest to Wilkes-Barre Mayor Tom Leighton that video cameras be installed at the fuel pumps to record who pumps the fuel, into what vehicle it is pumped and when it is pumped? That should help deter any theft and provide a method of explaining discrepancies.

Cameras already in use in the city can be moved to avoid having to purchase additional cameras.
