Dear editor, Re: Core project requires patience (Jan. 31 editorial). I have a small confession-- I am not a very skillful swimmer, and certainly not while wearing a 50-lb weight! The other concern about asking me to swim is the weather -- it's too cold! No, I think at this time of year and, given the work that needs to done for the Georgetown Main Street reconstruction, I would liken the task ahead to one of our great Canadian sports...curling. In curling, the most important thing, aside from the weather, is it is a team sport. The Main Street reconstruction has a great and big team (it's not a `sink or swim' on my own). Team Georgetown consists of the Town of Halton Hills, Phillips Engineering, Aecon Construction, the BIA Board of Directors, the businesses of Downtown Georgetown and our loyal patrons. With a team like this, how can we lose? The other reason curling is my chosen sport for this project is, you have to keep your eye on the target and the whole team sweeps to get to the target. There is a weight, granted, but this weight glides on ice towards this target. The target will leave us in early summer with a brand new downtown. We are going to have to work hard to get there, but get there we will. We must consider this, as in curling, as bringing into Downtown Georgetown `sweeping changes'. I look forward to working with `Team Georgetown' on this project. We will have aches and pains along the way, but with the support of all, Downtown Georgetown will come through this as the winning team. Kay Matthews, manager, Georgetown Central B.I.A.
