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 motivated the callers:
Some people feel they can talk and treat people any way that they please because they feel empowered. But karma is something else. What goes around comes around.
Watch and you’ll see.
Several times passing the Midway police station, there will be three police cars parked there. What are they doing that they stay at the police station so much that they’re not out patrolling, protecting the banks and the people?
To the caller who called in about the cats in Arlington Park: There are a lot of good people who provide spay and neuter, shots and shelter and a meal to homeless cats. If you are interested, please provide an inside home for all of those animals.
I think it’s a disgrace and a dishonor not to have something on the front page today on Veterans Day that says that today is Veteran’s Day. We want to say thank you, veterans, all of you, for what you have given to us to have our freedom.
The concern is that our current politicians are novice, and the ones that were re-elected are also novice politicians and have done nothing but brought this city and county into more debt. Maybe we need to re-vote.
About the famous lemonade family: I see they went and stirred up the pot again. The Midway PD and the city hall employees have had their lives threatened for doing their jobs, while you sit there and collect handouts over something that should have been laid to rest a long time ago. In the end, I guess it all boils down to the family getting its 15 minutes of fame and an expense-free Christmas.
They need to crack down on people selling prescription drugs in Gum Branch. That’s a shame. That’s illegal. They could sell it to people who shouldn’t take them, and it could kill them.
