Speakout: Jan. 6, 2012


Drivers who can’t maintain the posted speed limit are a hazard to other drivers. Please put on your four-way emergency flashers to warn other drivers that you can’t drive safely.


Please be considerate if you use self-checkout machines. If you hit the “don’t bag” button more than three times, it will notify the employee, causing delays. And if you have a lot of items, use a regular cashier.


You can say all the Happy Holidays you want, but Dec. 25 will always be Christmas Day. There will always be Christmas trees, Christmas songs, Christmas cookies and then Christmas candy canes.


In Florida, gasoline is $3.11 per gallon, and it’s $3.77 per gallon in northern New York. How can it be that much different? In Glens Falls, the price is only $3.62, so there must be some gouging going on in the North Country.


I am a student at CCC, and I am outraged that our art professor was cut. Our professor is one of the best we have at CCC.


Be careful, men and women, of who you decide to date. There are people looking for only what you have and will take advantage of you or try to. Don’t be afraid of a background check. It will save grief later on.


It’s disgusting to see the amount of people who don’t tip or barely tip at a restaurant. If you can’t afford the dining experience, cook at home. No server is there because they like you or to serve others for free. 


Until recently, Clinton Community College was operating with a $3 million surplus, and now it is $600,000 in the red?


Keeseville does not need an incorporated village. AuSable Forks, Jay, Peru and Wilmington all put up lights and decorate for the holidays. The Village Board and mayor are just stepping up in an attempt to sway voters. Vote for dissolution Jan. 22.
