Hey if I shovel my city-owned sidewalk you better repair my homeowner-owned lawn by the street you ripped up with your plow or I will fine you for the repair. Fair is fair.


A Sound Off in the Jan. 31 column made the ridiculous statement that “hammers kill more people than guns” and invited people to fact-check this statement. I did that, and learned that 67.9 percent of murders are committed with firearms, while 3.9 percent are committed with blunt objects, including baseball bats, clubs and hammers. Wild, unsubstantiated statements are commonly made by “gun nuts.” Maybe the person who wrote that “fact” thinks people should also own grenades, tanks, and rocket-launchers.


The parking lot at Sportsplex is absolutely atrocious! They collect money from us to host sporting events and they seriously neglect the parking lot. Unfortunately someone is going to do serious damage to their vehicle or god forbid, someone is going to get hurt before they do anything about it.
