Speakout: Dec. 29, 2012


I am just wondering how many people out there know that November is National Native American Month? I love seeing commercials for the other ethnic groups. Why is there none for the Native Americans, and why did it take so long to be recognized?


I am not a drinker, smoker or drug user, but from what I understand marijuana makes you mellow and happy. Maybe if it was legal, we could all smoke it and there would not be as much violence and hate in the world.


Why can’t the government leave the Indian land alone? It belongs to them. I think putting it up for auction due to unpaid taxes is just plain stupid.


Congratulations to Rouses Point for wanting to improve the downtown area. But what about the burnt-out buildings as you enter the village from the west? It is the first impression people receive of our beautiful village.


You can’t order disaster relief like a drive-through burger. Our response to disasters in this country is excellent. People in need are impatient, understandably so, but then there are warnings well ahead of most storms.


Thanks to you people who leave home and leave your dogs out to constantly bark. Enough is enough; there are nuisance laws. 


Shame on anyone who abuses their children. You are the real evil of the world, whether it be physical or mental. May that child get help before it’s too late. Adults don’t be afraid to believe the children who are being abused.


Please tell track teams not to run in socializing groups. On a blind curve in a 55-mph zone, suddenly there’s a dozen kids in my lane. A car in the oncoming lane would have spelled disaster. All of these oblivious kids stayed together on the pavement.
