FELLOW HOCKEY FANS, enough of us could not go because we just could not afford it, no matter how you phrase that the tickets were affordable. I know there are expenses involved with everything, and I did like hockey and enjoyed the games I attended. But we just could not afford it all the time. But don’t blame us for not being able to jump up the numbers and money.

 

THE PROBLEM WITH the Affordable Health Care is that the insurance companies do not want to have to cover cancer expenses or to be told they can’t cancel because of cancer expense “limitations” they want to impose. So they think they can now legally just kick people off insurance and that should not be right. The people without insurance need to buy it or pay penalties. I’m tired of paying for them.

 

HOW DARE ANYONE criticize that there were only about 300 people attending downtown Veterans Day? The city yanked the buses so that a lot of vets themselves who could not attend.

 

THE GOVERNMENT should take tobacco from the tobacco companies and give them the marijuana, and the government should take the marijuana from the Mexican drug smugglers and give them the tobacco.

 

YOUR ARTICLE ABOUT Dorothy Chancey in the Your Faith section of the paper was so inspiring. Being a pianist for Blythe Baptist Church for the past 49 years is no small feat, but Dorothy did achieve it without complaint. Also, she has to be admired for what she does with money she receives from playing the piano at nonchurch events. She plows that money back into buying items that the church needs. Dorothy, you are an inspiration to all of us.

 

WILL MUSCHAMP SAYS the loss by Florida to Georgia Southern was an embarrassment. An embarrassment is when the better team gets beat by an inferior team. In this case, Georgia Southern was the far superior team, dominating all phases of the game. The only thing Florida has to be embarrassed about is paying over a half million dollars for a spanking.

 

IF PEOPLE WOULD keep their animals in their own yards, the animal control people would not have to keep coming to my house to pick up animals every time you turn around.

 

THERE SHOULD BE no such thing as minimum wage. The whole world should work on commission. If you do a good job, you will make a nice wage. If you are lazy with a bad attitude, you will starve.
