Thanks for clearing
intersections

Kyle Allen, I want to thank you for going the extra mile to make sure the corners of Oak and Park and Park and Maple were cleared so that the stop sign could be seen. Whoever cleared it did a great job. The way it should be done and then they came the next day and did the patching on the bad holes.

Thanks for taking care of business.

Soybean oil is harmful

Now the American people have been given another “communist socialist” dictation, mandate, law: Every food processing business must put soy or soy bean oil in their processed food!

Soy or soy bean oil is far too strong for humans. It will overwork your kidneys, “rev” up your blood pressure, give intense pain to your bones and muscles, blisters inside your mouth, cold sores on your lips.

Even worse, expectant mothers and nursing mothers would be giving it to their little helpless babies. Many people are allergic to it.

The government has developed a hybrid gasoline formula that will make our gasoline less costly. If we are ill and too sick to drive we won’t be buying gas anyway.

They want to make sure the soybean industry is going full blast. I hope the people in the Food and Drug Administration get their “fair share”of soy beans.

I don’t think they have the right to tell people what to eat or not to eat. They have to even put it in cough drops and vitamins.

If it is so good for us, why didn’t they tell us years and years ago? The people who are pushing it probably have some financial benefit from it.

They know people are dumb — so if you’re looking for a job where you don’t have to know anything, try the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

It’s easy to tell difference between coyotes, dogs

I just got done reading about the killing of two huskies in Crown Point and had to laugh at what the lady had to say.

The police need training in identifying the difference between huskies and malamute and coyotes? She must think the Crown Point Police are that stupid. It’s not that hard to tell.

The huskies and malamute are a large dog. The coyotes are always small and very timid and will run when they see people.

These huskies maybe got so aggressive because of the hot weather. These people need to stop acting like the Crown Point Police are stupid and don’t know their job.

It’s sad when dogs get so aggressive and attack police officers and people. The Crown Point Police just did their job. Good dogs do go bad. Even in this heat.
