Thanks, Hobart, for taking our alley pick-up and moving it to the front, where we don’t have driveways or garages. Like my neighbors weren’t already big enough hillbillies already. Do you really think they’ll wheel the cans out of sight when they’re empty?

This is to the person who is tired of driving the neighbor’s child around. How can people be so cruel and stingy! Don’t they realize that it’s not the child’s fault, and the child may need any kindness he or she can get? My mom didn’t have a car and didn’t drive. We relied on the kindness of a few neighbors who picked us up and took us to school in the storms or frigid temperatures, sometimes, when they thought of us or saw us. Otherwise, we walked everywhere.

OK Jackson Street residents, I guess the next step is to start calling the police. There is a posted six-ton load limited on residential streets.

I am a World War II veteran and I would like to thank Applebee’s for the free dinners they gave out to the veterans.
