Caps for walkers: Where can I find plastic caps for walkers? I used to get packs of four from U.S. Steel, but they aren’t open anymore. I tried the rubber ones, but they didn’t last very long, especially on concrete.
Kudos to CVS: CVS Pharmacy did the right thing by getting rid of all tobacco products. Now, if all the other pharmacies, gas stations and grocery stores would do the same thing, it would be a better country.
Good deeds: God bless the “cat lady.” If there were more people like her in the world, it would be a better place to live. For anyone to complain about a good deed doesn’t have a rational mind.
Yard isn’t an outhouse: My yard is outside but should not be used as an outhouse for dogs. Urine burns the evergreen branches and kills other foliage.
Avoid redlight cameras: Personally, I vote to cancel the redlight photo enforced program. I drive out of my way to avoid any corner that has these cameras.
Blamed for everything: I can’t believe the comment in regards to blaming President Obama for losing the Olympics in the TOTC. Next they’re going to blame him for the sun not shining today.
Flood plain: That’s fine they are building a plaza after the former mayor of Gurnee, but the location is ridiculous. It’s been a flood plain for years. They cleared everything out of that area because of the flooding in the past.
Great program: It was a delight to open my News-Sun and see the article “Local veteran gets recycled ride.” I am so delighted to know that they are doing something like this and it’s the first time I have heard about it. I hope the News-Sun staff will keep us updated on this because these veterans deserve our help when they need it.
Caring is not a crime: In response to the cat lady having 20 cats. The allegations were unfounded. Therefore, I would strongly suggest Waukegan check more carefully and more accurately to future anonymous complaints. Is caring for these homeless creatures really a crime?
Bus stop gripes: When a school bus is stopped on a four-lane street or highway, drivers coming from the opposite direction do not stop. Also, parents please have your students ready to get on the bus. Drivers are waiting to get to work in the morning and can’t afford any lost time waiting for kids that walk like turtles to get to their bus.
Simplest solution: The simplest solution for the economy is through gas and diesel fuel. We need to lower the price of gas by $1.50 a gallon and get a fuel tax of 10 cents a gallon across the country. It will eliminate all the toll roads and the country will be in better shape.
Above and beyond: I would like to thank the gentleman who helped me out when my vehicle became stuck in a snow bank at Greenwood and Sheridan roads. He drove by and saw my predicament and went to his house and came back with tow straps and pulled me out. He refused any type of monetary tip. This gentleman went above and beyond, and if I ever hear anybody slamming Hispanics or immigrants, they can deal with me. He helped me out of a situation that would have cost me a lot of money.
Road needs repairs: I would like to know who owns the road as you drive off the Amstutz at Greenwood Road. The potholes will suck you in and my car is out of alignment.
Heads-up on traffic: Thank you Dan Moran for the article about the traffic delays and the improvements that are going to be made in the area. I had no idea this was going on, but now at least I know which areas to avoid in the village.
Great idea: Regarding the comment “Needs casino” in the TOTC. This person believes it would be a good idea to have a casino on the Waukegan lakefront. I agree, 110 percent. That would be an excellent idea. It would clean up the Waukegan lakefront and get the downtown area thriving again. Otherwise, I don’t see any hope for that area of Waukegan.
She’s a child: I cannot believe they’re even considering trying the 14-year-old as an adult. Have we become as monstrous as the criminals among us? There is no way a 14-year-old has the mind of an adult. The horrible crime she committed does nothing to change her age.
