Traffic lights

The traffic lights in Methuen Square on Route 28 are the worst I’ve ever seen causing jam-ups and hypertension. It should be simple enough to fix.

Obama’s taxes

For all that the media played out how much of a miserable human being Romney was for only paying 14 percent in taxes, why has Obama gotten a free pass for only paying 18 percent? I truly believe this was one of the major points before the election but all of a sudden it does not matter. Are you telling me that we sold our country down the river over a tiny 4 percent.

No casino

Putting a casino at Rockingham Park is not going to lower our taxes in Salem. If anything they will be going up. We will have to hire more police, firefighters and teachers. In addition to that, what do you think will happen to the roads with increased traffic? The restaurants will not have more business either as people do not leave casinos to go eat but stay there until their money is gone. With at least two new casinos planned for nearby Massachusetts we won’t be seeing those residents. If the lawmakers really want to go through with this they need to find a location not in the very middle of our little town.
