To the editor:
The Lucky 7 Arcade was a very fun place for seniors like myself to go to and have fun, meet new friends, laugh, enjoy a peaceful evening with no loud ruckus. The Gloucester arcade run by the Parisi family was open and running just fine, no problems with the “laws” or politicians. It was allowed to run for seven years! The Danvers arcade was opened in more recent years. Never a problem here either!
So, why, one day, did Martha Coakley decide suddenly to close both arcades with no notice whatsoever? (”Lucky 7 backers hit Coakley visit,” May 5.)
What is so different about these adult arcades from Salem Willows or Salisbury Beach arcades? They all give non-money prizes! None of them are in a restaurant setting. No food is served.
I am hoping that this matter will be resolved soon. I am sorry for the entire family that lost its livelihood and will continue to pray for justice for them. They are wonderful honest people.
