April 03, 2011
Dear Sir /Madam,
Over the past 6 months, the service from the garbage collection truck has been very disappointing. We have complained to the truck driver, but he has done very little to solve the problems. Therefore, I am writing directly to your department to request your help.Basically, there are two problems. The first is that the truck never follows the correct time schedule. Your notice says that garbage will be collected in our area from Monday to Friday at 6 p.m.,but the truck always either arrives too early or too late. It has been as much as 15 minutes early and 25 minutes late. The second problem, which is more serious, is that the truck moves off too quickly.
I have seen people running after the moving vehicle almost every time, making a disaster verylikely. What if the person running were pregnant, disabled, or elderly?
As I mentioned at the beginning, we did express our concerns to the driver. The first time we spoke to him, he was very kind. He explained very patiently that the department was trying to make a better time schedule. Thereafter, he just started ignoring us. Honestly speaking, I felt this was very rude of him and unprofessional.
If these problems continue, I am worried that residents will start dropping their trash on the corner of the street. Therefore, for both the safety and health of everybody, I hope that you will look into this matter as soon as possible.
Yours faithfully,

Tsai, Chia-wen

Time magazine has honored a Taiwanese vegetable vendor Chen Shu-chu as one of the 100 most influential people of 2010. Chen was also selected by Forbes magazine as one of the 48 heroes of philanthropy ( 善行 ) from Asia. Out of her modest income, she has donated NT$10 million to charity over the years, including a children’s fund, construction of a library at a school, and construction of the local orphanage, where she also gives financial support to three children.
Everyday around 3 a.m., Chen shows up at the wholesale market to pick fresh produce. At 4 a.m., her stall opens for business, and customers are already waiting. She came from a poor family and was forced to drop out of school at the age of 13 to support her six brothers and sisters following the death of her mother. Her mother died in labor and her brother died of illness because her family could not afford medical care. She took over her mother’s vegetable stand and has been selling vegetables at Central Market in Taitung since 1963.
She makes a small profit of five to ten NT dollars on each sale. The nickels and dimes she earns are the basis for her charitable giving. Many poor students and families whom she has never met have had their lives changed by her generosity. Chen Shu-chu is merely a common grocery vendor. She is not famous. The 61-year-old once told a newspaper that money is not useful unless it is given to those in need. Her story encourages many people that even though they may not be rich, their small donations may come as a great help to some less fortunate people.
