Speakout: Sept. 26, 2012

Stand

Some Catholic politicians support abortion and do not support traditional marriage just between a man and a woman. Faithful Catholics should check on local and national candidates as to their position on these grave moral issues.

Fire

Why not a rental fire-proofing enclosure surround carried to endangered houses facing forest fires by helicopter? Dropped into place over houses by contract, fire-proof enclosures would seal out the surrounding forest fire flames by design. How expensive would it be with today’s materials and design genius?

Parking

I just get annoyed when cars are parked in a “no parking” zone. I see it all the time at Price Chopper and other places. Come on, people.

Early

Sunday at 7:30 a.m. and a business is mowing. You could not wait for another hour and let us sleep in a little. Could you change your days to Monday through Friday?

Breakfast

Please send your children to school with a good breakfast. Oatmeal, eggs and toast are good examples. Please don’t feed them sugary cereals like Lucky Charms, Kicks, Tricks, Cocoa Puffs or air-puffed cereals like puffed rice or puffed wheat. They’re either hyper or tired and starving by 10 a.m.

Lifeguards

My sister and I brought our grandchildren to AuSable Point Beach for an afternoon of swimming and a picnic. It is a beautiful beach. Well, twice the kids were told to get out of the water so the lifeguard could take a break. No wonder it’s empty half the time.

Wedding

I just want to thank Bill and his crew at Westside Ballroom for the terrific job they did at my son’s wedding. Everyone there was so nice and helpful. They helped us set up and box things up later.

Bridge

I just came across one of the ferries, and on my bill it has a fuel surcharge of 40 cents for a round trip. The ferry made millions when the bridge went out in Crown Point. It is a shame they charge people for fuel.
