TalkBack: Smoke bombs, traffic and lost dog




Smoke bombs

I had a comment on what I saw on TV the other day. I don't do drugs. I don't even drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes, but it seems like some of the stuff that goes on around here just seems scripted and choreographed, like we all know it's election time so, when we go to the drug bust, let's throw some smoke bombs in there for drama, pull in some more voters. Plus it's good for the media. Hooray for the smoke bombs!

Ideas in a barrel

I got a good idea. Everybody should get a barrel and pieces of paper, write a bunch of stupid ideas down and, for a dollar, everybody gets to pick one out and present it to City Council. We can find out what we're going to do for the next year.

School traffic

I have a comment on the TalkBack about cars being parked in the road when school is let out. We have that problem on Pine Log Road. It is a serious problem. Somebody is going to get killed at one of these places one day, and that's when they'll decide to do something. This never used to happen. The schools are overcrowded, and the highway department doesn't know how to handle putting an extra lane there. A simple no parking sign would help. What is it going to take? How many deaths it going to take? When are they going to figure out what needs to be done?

Disrespectful

I observed a man standing behind an office building hitting golf balls out into the cemetery onto graves. This is one of the most disrespectful things I have ever seen. I have family and friends buried in the cemetery, and I also have two grave sites in the cemetery. I think that this needs to be stopped immediately. Please let these folks rest in peace. Shame, shame.
