Speakout: April 29, 2013

Upstate

If you were to divide up New York state, you would have a southern, western, eastern and northern part. From the southern part of the Adirondacks to the Canadian border is all Upstate. That’s just how geography works.

Knives

We going to now ban knives because of a stabbing? Or does it just work for guns?

Vacations

How many can afford five vacations in three months like your president so far in 2013. We are in financial straights but he can go play golf with Tiger, wife can ski, kids get two spring breaks.

Gas

Just outside NYC, in Fort Lee, N.J., gas is 3.27 a gallon. What’s gas cost in your neck of the woods?

Arrests

Reading the latest arrests in today’s P-R, I’m wondering how soon I will be the only person in Clinton County not in jail.

Tests

Isn’t anyone worried that bailing students out of difficult tests teaches them that when times are tough, complain, give up and walk away? Maybe this is a time to show children that they can get through tough times with their parents’ support and encouragement.

Zones

There is an increased emphasis on no speeding in work zones on Interstate 87. Since this is for the safety of the workers, it should apply to all. Sheriff’s department car in front of me this morning did not slow down going through work area.

Gifts

You can buy the grandkids all they want. That doesn’t buy their love.
