I wish to thank the Methuen traffic control officer who promptly returned my call the other day and his prompt response to placing a road sign on my street. For several years I have been concerned about a group of children playing on my street that dart out or cross without looking. And never is there a parent in sight! I have had a couple of close calls with these kids and I drive at a crawl being aware of this danger. Now this street has become a race track with a high increase in speeding traffic. I am worried this is a fatality waiting to happen. I called about this concern and by the next day the Methuen Police Department had placed a road sign with speed control and a children in area warning. I am relieved the police are vigilant and hopefully will be watching. Thank you again to this diligent officer.
I read that Sweden, with socialism, has the highest living standard in the world. Also their industry ranks higher than the U.S. So who are we to constantly criticize them? Of course I realize they maybe criticizing us, too, with our 1 percenters and millions on welfare and the shrinking middle class. But it is what it is.
Can anyone tell me when the off-ramps on the highways will be completed? Seems like the highway department begins the road repairs, then disappears for weeks without finishing them. Will they be done before the snow falls, or do we have to wait until spring? The Route 125 connector and the ramps have been half-done for weeks now. What’s up?
I agree with the comment on World Series announcer Joe Buck, I thought they were suppose to be unbiased when reporting. Joe Buck and his partner should be taken off the series. It’s pretty bad when you have to shut the sound off and just watch the game because of their comments.
I just read the Sound Off comment about the woman who used her EBT card to take cash out of an ATM to buy lottery tickets after being told by the store clerk that she could not use her card for them. When is this madness going to stop? When are the people of this state going to wake up and stop electing Democrats who see nothing wrong with this story and who have created this mess? This is just one example of what is happening in this state. As long as we continue to elect Democrats, the blatant abuse, misuse, and mishandling of my money and the hard-earned money of every taxpayer in Massachusetts will continue. Welfare is meant to help people get back on their feet; it’s not for lottery tickets! Wake up, people!
So the administration had nearly four years to prepare the website for Obamacare and yet it failed miserably. How do you think the actual health insurance will go knowing that just the sign-up portion failed. Let’s face it, the federal government fails more often than not at these massive projects. Better health care could have been implemented with several smaller, simpler bills. The ACA is going to be a lot more expensive than its proponents will ever admit.
Just a reminder to all motorists. When you park your car on the side of the road and then swing open your door and another car snaps it off its hinges, or worse, it will be your fault, because you are opening your door into the line of oncoming traffic. So please look over your shoulder or your side-view mirror first.
