Talk of the County

Probable cause

Regarding the article “Drug raid.” I applaud the state, drug enforcement, Crime Stoppers and the FBI. It’s called probable cause. What a shame to be using a grandson for poor wrong choices. I think they need to further investigate these people.

Pols’ pensions

Everybody in the state is blaming the unions for the pension debacle. It’s not the unions. Why don’t you look at the congressmen and representatives who get full pensions and benefits after four years in office. Look how expensive that is. They get a 50-percent pension for four years of work. Can anybody else get that?

Blame computers!

In regard to the post office eliminating Saturday deliveries. I want to thank all of you people who used your e-mail and ordered items off the Internet because you’ve contributed to this decision. So quit complaining. I use all of the services that the post office has to offer so let’s keep the them in business. We’re really supporting fellow Americans who are trying to make a living and we should always stand up for our own people. Let’s step away from our computers and get down to the post office and start spending money there.

Gay marriage

People today want equal rights and our leader is for gay marriage for only one reason: Votes. The Bible is against gay marriage and it states that marriage is between one man and one woman. Let’s start standing up for what’s right. God has given all of us choices in life so it’s up to us to serve God or man. If you make the wrong choice in life, you’ll face judgment.

Good plowing

I don’t know about anybody else, but I thought all the plow drivers did good jobs cleaning off the roads following that big snowstorm on Thursday. And, they weren’t out of practice considering we haven’t had much snow the past year.

Cheaper gas

This is just a friendly notice to the residents of Beach Park. You can buy gas cheaper in Libertyville than you can on Sheridan Road in Beach Park. I think we’re being ripped off and taken advantage of.

Winona State

I agree with Jeff Bonato that Winona State University in Minnesota is a wonderful school in the most beautiful setting between the bluffs and the Mississippi River. As a 1979 graduate from Grayslake, I knew quite a few students from Illinois. Many of the students took advantage of the out-of-state tuition which was cheaper than many Illinois schools.
