Speakout: March 15, 2013

Shoveling

Another winter where after every storm only a minority of homeowners shovel by the required 24 hours. Lawmakers wasted time making laws that aren’t enforced.

Tattoos

An elderly man told me my tattoos were not what his generation found acceptable. He told me this as I was holding the door open for him at the bank. He didn’t say thank you, either.

Ice

When you clear your sidewalks of snow, don’t forget the de-icer. An icy sidewalk can equal a bad fall and injury. You could be sued.

Tests

There is an elephant in the room that is sucking the life out of our children and public education: standardized testing. Ask questions at your child’s school. You will be amazed at how many tests your child is taking.

Cost

I used to be a critic of the Fire Department because we were told they were the cause of high city taxes. If the Police Department budget has grown 45 percent, why weren’t taxpayers told that?
