I'm calling in regards to the yards up on Ridge Road by the upper alley. It's getting so bad you can hardly see cars coming down the alley. They complain about people not being able to mow the grass but this place is an eyesore. Can someone please do something about it?
I'm glad they cut the wages of the custodians at the Mifflin County High School or our taxes would have been higher yet.
The Hobby Lobby business does provide birth control. Out of 20 different types, they offer 16. They didn't want to pay for the four that cause abortion after the egg is fertilized. So, get your facts straight before you open your mouth about objects that you don't know anything about. In other words, they get 16 free types of birth control, only four they don't want to pay for. That's not no big deal. If you want to go out and have sex without procreation, buy your own birth control, that's what I say.
War in Iraq not over, hundreds of additional U.S. troops deployed. Al-Qaida not on the run, unless he meant running over the U.S. embassy. You can't keep your insurance. Is Osama bin Laden really dead? Odds are less than 50-50.
It is sad to see that our local congressman and the farm bureau want to continue to pollute the Chesapeake Bay.
I would like to know why our street on the 100 block of West Fourth Street hasn't been swept for the past four to five weeks. The police don't bother giving out tickets to the ones too lazy to move their cars. Why should I continue to move mine? But then I would get a ticket. Is this a case of who you know?
President Barack Obama is trying to make the United States of America a Third World country and he is doing a fine job of it. We the people of the United States should take action against this man. If Congress and Senate won't impeach him, maybe we should.
