Here are some of the issues that area residents are discussing. The statements were phoned in anonymously, so the Courier does not vouch for their veracity, nor do we know what motviated the callers:
The United States needs to bomb Libya and Iraq now. That’s all it is.
I need a king-size bed. If someone will donate one, give me a call at 432-3944. My name is Jimmy. Thank you.
There’s nothing — nothing at all — in Wednesday’s paper about the lemonade stand in Midway. Surely you’re not going to let that story die.
I’d like to know who the joker is that set up the traffic lights in this town because they’re sure not synchronized correctly to make a good, smooth traffic flow.
I think the principal of Bradwell Institute should shave his face. All the other principals look neat. Setting a good example is very important to young men.
Ms. Lily Baker, chairwoman of the board of education, congratulations are in order for your grounds crew. While their supervisor was out, there was no name-calling or talking down to personnel. There was just good old-fashioned hard work. It was a team effort. Congratulations.
I’d recommend that the city council take a serious look at the amount of inoperative vehicles — I’m talking about cars that don’t run, that have flat tires, wheels off, on jacks — scattered all through the neighborhoods in our city.
