---- — Untreated roads

I found it interesting recently traveling from the east side of Methuen how icy and untreated the roads were. That is, of course, until I got to Sevoian Drive were the salt and sand were so thick it rattled on my car. Hmmm, think it has anything to do with the fact Mayor Zanni lives there? Our tax dollars at work.

Honesty

I would like to thank whoever found my check book at TD Bank and turned it in. Thank you so much. It’s nice to know there are still honest people around. God bless you.

Death penalty

Another do-gooder wants to do away with the death penalty. I wonder if that person would feel that way if a couple of loved ones from his family were murdered. It’s very easy to say when it doesn’t concern you or yours. Naturally, there are many different cases. There could be three murders and there would be three different cases. For example, a person might use a shotgun and kill several people, and then there is a woman that is beaten badly by her husband for years, she gets a gun and blows him away. The mass murderer should get the death penalty and the woman should get two weeks in Florida. Also with the DNA testing which we now have and the many other means we have that come out of the laboratory there should be no mistakes in identity, absolutely none.

Thank you

Thank you to the three generations of sisters, Adamo, Walker and Walsh, for the beautiful Christmas tree and gift card that I won. It was well shared by my family and friend.

Placards

All handicap placards have an expiration date on them as well as a picture, which may be covered for privacy.

Too much time

In Massachusetts, handicap placards have an expiration date visible on the card and then it has to be renewed. The license photo is also within the placard for authorities to see if necessary. To all you healthy people out there that are so concerned when you go to a parking lot who is going in and out of a car with a placard; I think you have way too much time on your hands. Happy New Year.

Need a law

When the lowlifes of this country find new ways of stealing from us why doesn’t the government immediately counter with a new law to eliminate it. Crooks have been stealing manhole covers to get cash and stealing a lot of them. Why not make a law right away maybe a $1,000 fine and five years in jail. That will stop it fast. Can anyone imagine what would happen if the front wheel of a car hit an open manhole. That alone would be worth five years in jail.

Scare tactics?

Last week, the Democratic National Committee sent out an email to Obama for America supporters urging them to vote for Democrats to keep the Republicans from impeaching Obama. Scare tactics and lies? Or fear? You decide.
