By Jonathan Wright Elderly and handicapped persons now have easier access to Lewisburg's Carnegie Hall, thanks to a new temporary ramp made pos- sible by donations to the regional cultural center. The all-wooden structure was built at the main entrance by both volunteer labor and the local con- tracting firm of Josh Lipton. The $750 in the Carnegie Hall "ramp fund," from contributions, is being used for the project. "It's amazing to see the number of handicapped and elderly people who go up our steps here despite the obvious difficulty," Carnegie Hall executive director Vivian Conty says. "This is for them, and for those who can't use these steps at all. I think it's important as many people as possible have the opportunity to experience what goes on here in this hall--the music, drama, the Christmas Carol Sing, and every- thing else. Carnegie Hall is for ev- eryone." The ramp provides first floor only, which auditorium. Ms Conly plans call for an elevator, make all floors accessible rest rooms. There are no facilities on the first floor. A permanent ramp will be constructed along the of the building and will not from the front, accordi~ Conly. The lowest estim on the side ramp so far $8,000, an amount does not have at this time, L When it is built, it will be'i rated into a proposed plan, Ms Conly says. The idea for the ramp dorsed by John Bright, habilitative Technology neering for the West Vir ment of Rehabilitative department also supplied for the facility. Most of funds for the temporary contributed by the Crei family, according to Ms Historic District Skateboards are now banned from the streets of the Lewisburg Historic District, as mandated in an ordinance passed by the City Coun- cil at its January meeting at City Hall. Members of the Council, at vari- ous meetings the past three years, have discussed property damage and safety concerns allegedly caused by skateboard riders throughout downtown Lewisburg. A previous ordinanc~ adopted in July 1988 banned skateboards and other play vehicles from Washington and Jefferson Streets, but Council mem- bers have expressed concern that problems with the toys and their op- erators have extended beyond those streets. The new ordinance was given first r.eading December 19. The Council voted unanimously to ap- prove it on second reading at the 15, 16 & 17 Furniture Is A Fashion Industry.Over the year we have accumulated furniture. It Must Go!
