The Frozen in Time Hezitorial
A Special Thank You For the Photographs Submitted as They Reveal the Crisis That Befell Yonkers
YONKERS, NY — November 15, 2018 — Many children released from schools this mid-afternoon from throughout the Yonkers Public Schools District have not even at 8pm arrived home. Yonkers Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Edwin Quezada has proved himself flat-footed. So has Department of Public Works Commissioner Thomas Meier. Their individual responsibilities have been cast to the wayside. They have each had their share in not being prepared. They have each had a hand in exacerbating the wrath of Mother Nature many times over. Mayor Mike Spano will suffer the consequences for their claiming to do what they have failed to do, that is, to care for the safety of “our” schoolchildren. Adults are also trapped by the lack of planning. The streets of Yonkers seem more like an ice skating rink than roads one can traverse. The streets were evidently not salted? Cars, buses, and trucks are still spinning their wheels in a valiant but vain attempt to get to their destination. They are where they were first stuck. The scenario on the streets of Yonkers will likely look as they are tonight tomorrow morning; frozen in time.
Will heads roll? They should, but it is not likely to happen! The denial of the incompetence about Yonkers is the undoing of Yonkers prospects. Can the culture change? Can Yonkersites wait that long?
