To the Editor:
On Sunday, I received a newspaper called the Times Reporter and my attention was again drawn to East Main St. in Carrollton because it has also been the subject of stories in the weekly newspaper, The Free Press Standard, including this past week.
Let’s get a little history lesson and remember the man who said, “I told you so.”

In the 1970s, there was a big discussion about the curve at the end of East Main St. in Carrollton and how nice it would be to relocate SR 43 to straighten it out: to make it go straight down the hill and up the other side where it would rejoin the original road. Well, to do that you would have to change the route of 43 property line and to do that you would have to purchase a new right of way and pay the owner of the property a nice amount of money. Nothing was ever done because no one wanted to pony up with the money.

As a result, nothing was ever done by either party, the Ohio Department of Transportation or Carrollton Council and now, as you see, the man told you so.

Ralph Lloyd
Carrollton, OH
