Speakout: Oct. 23, 2013

Parking

I encourage the mayor to drive up Broad Street and try to maneuver through the double parked cars from Draper to Sanborn Avenue. There was always no parking on the side heading west. Why allow it now?

Football

When my kids were in school in the 1970s, PHS, MAI and St. Johns all fielded good football teams. Now Seton Catholic, no football team, and PHS had to cancel.

Courtesy

Dear patients, I give you a courtesy call the day before to remind you of your appointment. Have the decency to call back and let me know if you are showing up for your appointment.

Stress

It is sad when a charity event incurs unnecessary stress due to uncooperative partners. Oftentimes, people working for a charity are working under time constraints, which adds pressure to finishing the job. All for free. Make sure you know what you are getting in to.

Insurance

With the latest developments of people being forced to take health care, I just want to know if we are still considered a republic or if we are under kingdom status. People should be reminded how important it is to vote and be mindful of their choices.

Apples

Why is it I can buy apples shipped here from out of state cheaper then local grown? Something is wrong with this picture.

Congress

We need to replace Congress with a work force instead of the elected crew that gets voted in year after year and does nothing.

Hygiene

Personal hygiene is as follows: brush teeth daily, keep body and hair clean, wear clean clothes. We do not want to smell your breath or your body.

Abuse

Employers can be sued for sex abuse, but you can’t do much about it when it is verbal, physical or emotional abuse. New York needs to enact more laws to protect employees. What happened to the meaning of “professional behavior?”
