Why so few handicap cubicles at City Center polls?

To the Editor:
I went to vote on Tuesday, Nov. 6, as did many others at the City Center. We got there around 9:30 a.m. There was not a large crowd at that time.
I am partially handicapped. Standing is not something I’m able to do very much of.
I asked if there was an area or place where I could sit down to vote. I was directed to a cubicle with a chair, and someone was using it at the time. So I waited in line for the person to get done voting.

Veterans Day: ‘God Bless America!’

Nov. 11, 1918, at exactly 11 a.m., representatives of the forces fighting World War I signed the armistice which brought that deadly conflict to an end.
Up until 1954, when the name of the holiday was changed to Veterans Day, Armistice Day was observed as one of the top holidays in the United States. All schools, most cities and the nation had programs and observances of this important date.
