Garage 'ain't a flower shop'

May 26, 2007 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Concord Monitor

“Everyplace else has changed. This is original. "People think it's nothing but a junkyard. They don't realize how much this junk has helped people.”

Heselton, who's run Harry's Garage in downtown Warner for 40 years, had his business labeled an "eyesore" by a Contoocook woman in the pages of the Monitor two weeks ago. via Concord Monitor

People shouldn't judge Heselton but what his building looks like but he's done for his fellow man.This man helped me years ago when I broke down infront of his garage.He probably doesnt remeber that he helped me but I do.I dont know how and why this lady from contoocook came about with her comment but if she really knows this man;s heart she wouldnt have said what she said.Perhaps she should get a break since she was most likely misquoted by the paper or didnt mean to say what she said.We should learn from Heselton just to be helpful and not be so mean and judgemental.

I fully agree with you being a Warner Resident- I wonder how many people in this town actually are willing to go to bat for eachother. Harry is a nice man who means no harm to anyone, and he tries to keep it as orderly as possible. Hard to when the Town of Warner has image to think about more than actual town fellowship.. Who cares?? I do.. I care about letting people be themselves and stop trying to fit them into the Towns perfect image of a small new england town, its not.. Its a facade...

Harry rules! I have seen residential properties that are much worse.
Look around and you"ll see junkyards and neighbors that don't give a
Crap about anyone else that lives around them. Junk boxes driving
Around neighborhood speeding. Police should use their radar guns
More often around town and check inspection stickers.
So stop bashing Harry, he is a nice fella and is running a business.
I know what some people are waiting for is to level Harrys garage
And turn it into a parking lot for the building next door.
