Disabled seniors could use some help

Accolades to all involved in the superb production of the Aspen Elementary School second-grade “Buddy Goes To Mars”!

Admonishments to all who neglected to raise the parking lot barrier for the event; thus, denying my access to the handicapped parking space.

I am 77, currently surviving a rare cancer of my spine and must use a walker in crowds.

Fortunately, ramps, an adult handicapped restroom and an unreserved seat in lower row (phew!) enabled me to enjoy every minute of the show. However, no police and no obvious person who could raise the barrier made departure equally frustrating.

Let’s finally rectify the barrier operation and reserved seating as soon as possible. Am I the only handicapped senior in Aspen area?
