(Continued)

Voters

93 million eligible voters stayed home this year. Is there any way to poll them for their reasons, or were their opinions part of the biased polls that predicted a different outcome? These people have no right to complain about the outcome.

Pets

Please remember that many of the people using local food shelves also have pets who need food as much as their human companions.  Throw in a bag of pet food and/or some canned food with your donations.

Opening

I like Christmas just as much as anyone else, but I am outraged that a few retail stores are opening on Thanksgiving day. This is a day for families to spend quality time together. Do not take that away for corporate greed.

Future

Revitalization of Rousess Point’s downtown and where we want to be in the future.Instead of looking at vacant lots, use the time and effort to get a grocery store in the village. That will at least bring people in.

Tag

A visible handicap isn’t the criteria for a handicap placard or plate. I have multiple handicaps but can walk OK most of the time, while other times every step is painful, and that’s when I use mine.

Position

I’d rather see the athetic-director position at half-time than lose another math, English or science teacher. Some schools have merged the AD function with another position. Academics first.
