Mail Call

"I like to know why people doesn't have to put their garbage in garbage containers when they set it out along the road instead of putting it in bags and then the animals gets in it and just tears it up and throws it all over the place, and I'm not gonna continue cleaning this up. Before I do this, I'll have to call the law, because I'm not gonna do this. So why aren't they made to be put in trash containers, and if this isn't straightened out, well I'm gonna take it further, because I'm not cleaning all this mess up and it's not good be laying in front of my house all the time. It's bad enough they don't even clean the things up around mailboxes, less alone all this garbage being throwed around, and it just draws the animals at night. I know they have to be fed, but not like this. It's every Friday morning we have this. Here it is every Friday, it's not sometimes as bad as other times but it's bad, and it's got to be stopped or something's gotta be done about this. There's a law for littering trash, and it should be straightened out."

"It's interesting - Gov. Ehrlich couldn't find enough people to fill correctional officer jobs, but Saar's staff did a study and cut many positions. It doesn't make sense to me. Ehrlich says we need to fill positions, couldn't find people; Saar says there are too many, so I eliminate positions. What's wrong with that picture?"




"Just reading in the paper the other night where we get a big 3.3 percent raise in our Social Security. That's great. I'm not against raising the minimum wage, but I can only afford to take my wife out to fast food anyhow, and they've already increased those prices in anticipation of the minimum wage being increased. Car insurance has gone up; must be because of my age, because I haven't had an accident or a ticket in over 25 years - but with the price of gas I probably won't be able to drive anyhow. I like this idea of a minimum on the water and sewer, where I have to pay to have hauled away the sewer water that I didn't use in the first place. Real estate taxes, they do have them frozen, but we do raise assessments every years. Guess that's better than raising taxes. It's just as well all those things are happening, because we get the chance to stay home and watch movies we can't afford to go to see anymore."
