Clean commute award to seafood festival? Do people have any idea how many workers in HdG regularly ride a bicycle to work every day, summer or winter, to work at APG and nearby contractors and at other businesses? This award is a farce and disrespectful of people that are really giving their all to lead the way in carbon footprint reduction and healthy commuting.

If the mayor's office wants a list of deserving clean commuters we've got it.

If they're gonna have Green Commute award only for them using Smart Fortwo, does Sweet Devotion get the Black Commute award for running their Cupcake truck around the two county area 7 days a week?

to give special recognition to an event promoter who uses a compact car for advertising a home busiiness, leaving the thrifty car normally parked while the owner commutes to Philadelphia daily in a gas-thirsty Merceds just seems wrong. An award for the artwork on the bug? of course. but to suggest that an extra car saves energy -- that's plainly not thought out.

I would like to thank everyone for the surprise recognition last night. The Havre de Grace Rec Cheerleaders for their wondrous welcome, the many recreation volunteers for their support past and present, the citizens for allowing me to do a job I love, my friends and family for pitching in to assist whenever and wherever, the Department of Parks and Recreation for placing me in an amazing place, the many businesses and individuals who generously aid community events, the Police Department, DPW, Maintenannce, Administartive Assistants, Co-workers and others who advise and lend manpower, John Narvell, President of the Havre de Grace Recreation Committee for 28 years of working side-by-side, and to my wonderful husband, Art for being the silent, incredible support system that any erson would welcome. He is my anchor and my greatest fan and to God for blessing me with not only a phenomenal mate but for all of you. The Key is a shared award. It has my name but it carries all of our efforts. Gratefully, Karen Green
