Speakout: Jan. 1, 2014

Smokers

A certain fast-food restaurant should not let the employees who smoke all hang out around the building when on break. They all look terrible, and they need to go in a certain area to smoke. And family members shouldn’t hang around their work, either.

Disruptive

People really need to teach their children not to run around and disrupt people in public places. I went to a school concert to see the kids on stage, not the ones that were blocking the aisles and running around. Where were the parents?

Obamacare

Obamacare — there are so many of us that can’t afford it and don’t want it. The IRS is going to enforce it. They have the news channels pushing it. Our jobs are all going part time or closing. What country do we live in?

Collisions

The snow is on the roads, and people don’t feel safe without taking a portion of the middle of the road. This is why head-on collisions are the third-most prevalent type of accident in the North Country. If you are that unsure of your driving ability, stay home.

Bicyclists

Well cold weather is here; bicyclists on the road are fewer. Seems like it’s their road during the summer; we just get to drive on them. When do they start paying for the bike lanes etc. with fees like the rest of the world? I think it’s time they pay too.

Lanes

Please remember to pull over to the outside lane and slow down on the Thruway when the State Troopers have their flashing lights on and have someone pulled over. Let’s be safe and courteous to each other and save lives. A little kindness goes a long way. Let’s avoid tragedy.

Display

Thank you to the homeowners at the corner of Sanborn Ave. and Broad St. As a child, I enjoyed watching Santa go up and down your chimney, and now my children enjoy watching him. Driving by your house has become a family tradition.
