Speakout: July 13, 2013

Treatment

As a parent, I’d like to say how pleasantly reassuring it was to call up our county mental-health facility to inquire information on how to seek treatment for my child. Your patience and soft-spoken advice put my mind at ease.

Organic

It is so nice to see Wal-Mart carrying organic bread and more organic items. Thank you.

Difficult

Nobody should ever make somebody else’s job harder than it already is. Every job is a “service job,” no matter what your position is. All jobs are important, whatever the level they are.

Malls

I miss having the choice to go to two different malls in Plattsburgh. We should bring back a second mall, maybe put it on Route 9 by the theater. A second food court, too. Maybe a big mall like Albany.

Sunscreen

SPF is a myth just like anti-aging creams and global warming. Cave men didn’t wear it, and they turned out just fine. Sick of the government telling me what to eat and slather on my body.

Texting

Stop texting and driving before you kill somebody. You are being selfish.

Weight

Whether it is a disease or not, we bigger people do have diseases, like hypothyroidism, and are being treated with meds, which I pay for. And, yes, I work every day and still have a problem losing weight. Don’t judge.

Fourth

July 4th is Independence Day. It is a specific date. It is not July 3rd or 5th. It should be celebrated on whatever day of the week it falls on. Take the time to observe and honor our freedoms that so many of fought for.

Lights

Drivers, you have no good reason for failure to use your lights in poor light conditions and when you have wipers on. While you might choose to hasten your own removal from the gene pool, these laws are made to protect all drivers by making them visible.
