Storage area

Now that the city of Methuen is using the old Pleasant Valley School for storage, it has taken advantage of a quiet neighborhood and moved large gray storage containers on the property that are visible from the street and is also parking city trucks there. These containers have ruined the appearance of what was a nice neighborhood. Since the city owns the property, complaints about its appearance will be ignored. Methuen East District councilors need to address this issue before the property becomes a Methuen junk yard.

Parking problem

I cannot believe the confusion and frustration trying to pick up a first-grader at Silver Hill Horace Mann Charter School. I just got back to my car to find a big orange ticket from a Haverhill police officer on my car for a lousy violation for $25. Anyone with a child at this school knows how difficult if not impossible it is to find parking to pick up a child after school. Something needs to change here. It’s disgusting. Find a solution for everyone concerned.

Sebelius

Picture this, folks! Kathleen Sebelius — the bureaucrat who doesn’t work for us the taxpayers and who is one of the biggest screw-ups in the Obama administration along with Eric Holder, Lois Lerner, and Hillary Clinton — gets to keep her job. Yet the poor girl who happened to pick up the phone when Fox News’ Sean Hannity called at the Obamacare number the President gave out over the air gets the ax. Can we figure she probably had no idea who was on the line and answered to the best of her ability? Yet she was fired because she told the truth. Tells you everything you need to know about those “compassionate” Democrats who care so much about the common people!
