I’d just like to say kudos to the owner of the Save gas station on 76th and Broadway in Merrillville for standing up and taking care of the repair bills for the people who got the bad gas. The best way to take care of the public is to be up front and acknowledge your mistakes.

Yes, I know very well that Sen. Coats voted against the background checks. I asked him to and I praise him for doing it. The so-called background checks would have turned into a government gun registration. It’s none of their business whether I have guns or not.

I’ll be all for House Bill 1483 as long as the politicians that vote for it have to take a drug test. Flunk the drug test, lose your pay check. Fair is fair, right?

It’s time to regain control as parents. We are the adults. Give your kid a good whack on the behind the next time they disobey. When they threaten to call CPS on you, surrender them to the system without a second thought. If you can’t control your kids, you don’t need them.

To all you people complaining about the cost of Obamacare, no matter how much more your insurance premiums go up or how many of your benefits are reduced or lost, remember it is better to give than to receive.

The recent report that 40 children in Indiana died in one year of child abuse makes me wonder, what percentage of them involved drugs (including the “harmless” marijuana)?

Wait staff: Instead of, “Are you still working on that?,” try simply, “May I?” If your restaurant’s food requires “work” to consume, then we have a bigger problem than just dirty dishes.
