NEWSMONGER – Opinion

By: Linda Mendizabal

We’ve all seen the Lime scooters around town, but do you know the “rules”?

1) riders must be 18 and possess a driver’s license;

2) all motorized vehicles are to be ridden on the street, not on bike trails;

3) riders should wear helmets.

So, when have you seen a Lime rider obeying all the rules? Probably never.

It seems to me that the Lime company gets all the benefits with none of the responsibilities. They do not rent a site or employ someone to monitor the users, scooters can be rented where the last rider left them. And, therefore, who monitors the “rules” … hint: our police force when a 12 year old is injured. I read recently about a 12 year old girl riding on the sidewalk near Grocery Outlet, falling partially into the street where a car ran over her leg. I believe she was cited for being under age, no driver’s license, and no helmet. I wonder if the Lime Company even knew about it?

Last week 6 – 13 year olds were riding in the traffic lane across from Denny’s, no helmets, of course, no licenses, and none were 18. One bright young kid decided to get into the next lane and, here’s a surprise, he was hit by a car who was obeying the rules of the road.

I have to wonder where the parents are. These kids have, apparently, an app on their phone with some kind of credit in order to rent these scooters, and I assume the rental agreement has the “rules” but of course no employee to discern that these kids do not meet company criteria. It just seems to me that Anderson Bike Rentals on Hwy. 89, is a much better SLT citizen than Lime.

Sorry, but I sort of hold my breath every time I pass these kids on the road and hope I’m not going to be the unlucky motorist that hits one that pulls in front of me.

President’s Report

Since this is my first President’s report, I would like to share some of my kick off speech for anyone who was not able to attend. 

First, I would like to thank Pam for not 1, BUT 2 years of service as our leader and President!  2 years… That’s 730 days…17,520 hours…. Or 23 dog years! 

I would like to thank everyone for your overwhelming blind support for me becoming your President…. Now lets be honest for a second, and say that you guys are all doing secret happy dances that YOU are not up here right now! LOL Truthfully, I am actually, really excited to be President this year. I feel that our club is in a great place and that we have great momentum within our organization to achieve great things for our community.

This year I plan to continue working on creating a club culture where everyone in this room, feels comfortable, welcomed and respected. Differences are not ridiculed, but they are embraced. Where we can agree to disagree and not impose judgement on each other.  This year we will focus our time and energy on things we agree upon and walk away from anything that divides us.  As women, we need not be divided, we need to be united.  Within our club and within our community.

This year I plan to focus on SISLT in our community. We need to move from being a club focused organization, to be a community focused organization. If we expect to receive funds from our community to give back to our community….We need to be a part of our community!  This will mean more involvement in community activities, being physically present out there. 

My three goals for this year will be:

  1. To allocate funds for the Major Project.  I will work closely to support the Major Project Committee to bring forth a project and direction for our club to move forward on. In the past year, the committee has made great progress in evaluating potential projects, and I believe we are nearing the finish line for a club decision and implementation of a project.
  2. I strongly believe that having a Strategic Plan is critical in developing a short- and long-term road map for our organization. President Elect Jane and VP Annie will be taking on this project and I am so excited to see the direction.
  3. One of my favorite things about this club is our generosity. And we all are feeling the financial impact from the Edgewood Situation. I am dedicated to coming up with a new fundraiser or fundraisers that our club implement to replace this revenue stream.  I believe that we can create something great and look forward to having brain storming sessions to bring forth a plan to the club that will inspire us all to fundraise.

With all of this being said…. This is a club, a foundation, an organization. That without the equal efforts from all of its members will not thrive.  We all need to work together, help your sisters, lift your sisters and support each other. Personally, professionally and within this club!
