Instead of raising the price of gas to pay for our streets, what if we had the police start writing tickets for running red lights, speeding and turning right on red without stopping? If we had cameras on Coliseum Boulevard alone, we would have hundreds of thousands of dollars in just a few months. We could have perfect streets!

1. No one is saying that you must be open on Sunday, only that you can if you choose. 2. Who would object to it the strongest? Let's see, maybe the restaurant owners who serve alcohol? Competition! Then your only choice wouldn't be just a food establishment? Freedom of choice. What a concept!

I can't believe they are closing this campground for good this March. Many people use this facility throughout the year. It is always full during the hunting season from September through December. Boy Scout groups also use this besides the hunters, and it would be a shame to see this close.

I am so happy to see that Fort Wayne has gotten to the point where you can drive drunk, hit and kill someone, and leave the scene of the accident, and your total punishment is four years probation. I like to know if a man did that, would he get the same sentence? They say she was a mother of two. How about the mother of the person killed?

Should the Gen. Anthony Wayne statue be moved from Freimann Square? What honored recipient will occupy this prime piece of shaded real estate? Will it be reserved for a statue of “King Tom (Henry),” riding his mighty steed … ?

Reasons for raising gas prices: Maintenance, market, holiday weekends, all other weekends and any other time.

Say it ain't so, Boy Scout leaders. Just say no to the tiny minority of homosexuals who are destroying civilization. Say no to moral relativism.

Why should someone who breaks the law be rewarded by being given a path to citizenship? If I steal drugs from a pharmacy, should I be given a path to get the drugs through a doctor's prescription?

Assigning electoral votes by congressional district is legal if states want it. Two states already do it. It has nothing to do with being Republican or Democrat. They all should do it, and this is a republic, not a democracy. Many of you ranters need some education.

I'm so tired of Republican conspiracy theories. President Obama was not born in America. He didn't shoot skeet. He's going to take everyone's guns. Hillary Clinton faked her concussion. This stuff is childish and beneath the dignity of a political party which purports to have serious solutions to our problems.

Shame on the “Selective Ranter” who finds fault with Hillary over the deaths of four Americans in Libya, but does not condemn G.W. Bush and Dick Cheney for the unnecessary wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, which has cost us thousands of lives and has almost bankrupted us!

How does Marlin Stutzman … think he knows more than the federal economists? Now he wants to tell the Federal Reserve how to act. That's like someone who flies a kite telling NASA how to launch rockets. He's so full of himself he might pop.
