Can't get help for road growing grass
I called the office of my councilman, George Meyers, and asked to speak to someone about having our street repaved. I live on a cul de sac off of Man o' War and have lived here for 13 years.
I spoke to a woman in his office about the grass growing in the street. Last year when I called, the city sent workers to cut it down.
The woman told me they have a scale to judge which streets should be repaved. She informed me that a rating of 68 means the street should be repaved and my street has a rating of 38. She said our street wasn't a priority,
Never miss a local story.
When I told her I was taking this to the media she said to go ahead that Meyers still wouldn't OK to have the street repaved.
This street is over 30 years old and you would think they could repave it once. Don't look for me to vote for someone who won't even speak to you when you call.
Republican for Witt
I am a registered Republican, but I am going to vote for Kathy Witt for sheriff. Witt stands for the right things. She is passionate about Megan's Law and helping the domestic violence victims.
She is committed to checking up on the sex offenders to make sure they are living where they are registered to be. She has done a lot of good for our community by protecting our citizens. She cares about people and cares about the citizens of Fayette County. I would like to encourage everyone, Democrat or Republican, to vote for Witt in November.
Recently there was a letter to the editor blaming U.S. government employees for the demise of the USPS by picking direct deposits over mailed checks.
I have worked for the government for 30 years and did and do not have a choice. It was either a direct deposit check or no check.
So, in fact, it was the government's fault for not mailing checks, since we are required to have direct deposit.
For help, call ...
The TV went out again the other night. The screen told me, "If a problem remains please contact l##l##l. Maybe my next cable bill will explain this mysterious contact. Grrrr
Obama's scary nag
Now that ISIS has bragged worldwide about beheading the second American non-combatant held prisoner, our president has equivalently responded; "You naughty people, you must not do such horrible things. If you continue, we will remind you again."
Now, is that not special?
Don't elevate McConnell
I am terrified to think what damage will be done to the country if Mitch McConnell is returned to the Senate. If the Senate goes Republican, McConnell will probably become majority leader.
Consider the following. If McConnell could prevent the loss of coal jobs, wouldn't he have done so during his many years in the Senate?
No matter how much money he had he cannot force the electric power companies to burn Kentucky coal when natural gas and western coal are cheaper.
During his tenure he has twice voted against the Violence Against Women Act and against the Paycheck Fairness Act. He also voted against the extension of unemployment benefits.
You can see by this voting record that he does not have the interest of the average American at heart. Vote for the welfare of the majority.
Message to political parties: I am tired of your calls, e-mails and mail asking for money. I am a person, not a corporation.
