Could wording change the discussion?

By

As I read Bobbi Holzel’s “Why not plow?”  letter in the Oct. 19 edition of the Colchester Sun, I wondered how the discussion might change if we used the term “driveways and shared driveways” instead of private roads. There are many long driveways in town – some over 100 yards – and we aren’t discussing them. What distinguishes a private road from a long driveway? (I will grant that driveways wouldn’t adequately describe the roads in Camp Johnson and St. Michael’s College.)
