Quickly’s Neighbors, March 26

Does a day go by without the Gary mayor grabbing a photo-op? How does she ever get any work done?

Picking board members outside of Gary to fill any positions associated with Gary is not degrading. Picking people outside of Gary to pick up Gary’s trash and handle emergency medical calls is degrading. There are people here in Gary who are trained and capable to do these things.

I don’t know which politicians will profit from the charter schools, but I do know the Gary Community School Corp. cannot afford to keep paying $40-plus per hour for nothing. Maybe the children and concerned teachers will profit from charter schools. Teachers will have decent, not excessive, wages and children will have caring teachers.

If I can’t eat some of the fish that live in Lake Michigan, and sometimes I’m not allowed to swim in it, why would I ever want to drink Lake Michigan water? Come on Valparaiso, use some common sense!

I wonder if the time and temperature line in Valparaiso would be less congested if they eliminated at least half of the advertisements?
