Speak Out

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Highway patrol

I would like to commend the highway patrol. They have a hard job and very often lose their lives. I want to commend them. Thank you.

Movie reviews

I agree with the person who called in about missing the movie reviews in the newspaper. I, too, wish we could get those back in.

Casino impact

I recently visited the great Smoky Mountains for the first time in the past five years. I was amazed at the massive casino and hotel complex that was built in Cherokee, N.C. I was amazed at the businesses that were in business for decades that are now out of business.

Wasting money

Does anyone else think it's absolutely absurd and a waste of money to spend half a million dollars on a new computer system for the city? We need to have good computers and communication, but couldn't a college student at Southeast write a program for $10,000 on the software?

Read comics

I live in the country and my Missourian is delivered by car. It's very good service, but I don't know why more people don't read the comics. People need to laugh. It's good for them and releases endorphins.

Old folks

This is concerning the obituaries. The older folks worked hard, did the most things for their churches, raised their children and always kept busy.

Highway patrol: Very true as well as all first responders.

Movie reviews: Try the Internet.

Casino impact: They are probably working at the casino and hotel.

Wasting money: Get real, the city knows best....just look at Broadway.

Read comics: HAHAHA

Old folks: And this relates to the obits how.

With a temp of 37 that will start the geese and the RVs heading South.

peter_grant: Also, what if the student leaves a backdoor in it for later use.

Wheels: Agree with you, the later the better.

Rick: Victoria's Secret apologizes for putting a Native American-style headdress on a model in a fashion show. Are you the one that complained to Victoria Secret? lol

Wheels, you had lust in your eyes, which is good. It means your not dead yet.

Wheels hang in there bolt the hatches down if you haven't already, I'm afraid the ride is going to get a little rough here in the future. It is a mess my friend.

Off topic, but Wheels, send me an e-mail if you would.

I had my hard-drive crash on me and lost everybody on my contact list.

Victoria never told ME her secret!
