Why is there a turning lane to turn left (north) from Pettit (Avenue) onto to Lafayette (Street), and yet there is no turning light (arrow) on the stoplight?
Praise to home-grown tomatoes, so tasty and juicy. Tomatoes were never meant to be pale, bland and crunchy.
Let's keep the U.N. out of the U.S.
People turning onto Lima Road and taking all three lanes to turn: Where in the world did you get your driver's license? You have the right of way to the lane nearest you only! Then signal into the other two lanes. Read your state of Indiana driver's manual!
where my parents are is in a total debris (limbs, leaves, weeds) mess. Stones cracked and grown over with weeds. My father's grave is sinking. The new bridge with all the colorful lights reminds me of a midway without the rides. Money wasted and ugly.
Just read the best description of the average working person that I have ever heard: “The man who never is thought of ... . He works, he votes, generally he prays — but he always pays!” — William Graham Sumner, Yale University, 1883. More true today than ever!
I absolutely do not understand why we are cutting back on our bases and military here in the U.S. while we maintain 900 bases around the world, including troops in Germany (don't they know the cold war is over?) Korea, Vietnam, etc.
Haven't enough people died from head injuries in auto accidents while not wearing helmets? Yes. People in cars. Helmets would reduce head injury fatalities in car accidents. So you do-gooder, nanny staters should just leave the bikers alone unless you want to ruin your wife's hair-do.
This generation of parents are so overprotective of their kids that it's sickening. Text, call, email me so I know where you are at all times. Your kids have no interpersonal social skills. You are setting them up for failure in real-world situations.
No to using inmates to clean up … (a local cemetery). … (The cemetery) is a for profit company; let them pay for their own cleanup.
Right wing, Left wing, Tea Party, etc. As long as big dollar donors are in the pockets of politicians, things will never change. Term limits will do it. President six years, Senate five years, House four years. Governors must have lived in their home state for the last five years.
The city wouldn't have to raise taxes if they'd quit pouring money into downtown. Mayor (Tom) Henry seems to think taxpayers are made of money. Just because he makes over $100,000 a year doesn't mean everyone does. We need good roads, not all the fun stuff.
