Road rights

In reply to "Too many 18-wheelers": You think the 18-wheelers won't tear up up the roadway on 30th Avenue? Don't the homeowners on 30th Avenue have a right to decent roads, too?

Move it over

People justify their right to use the left lane by saying they are driving the legal speed limit so they don't have to get over. Well, it is against the law to shoot people so using their reasoning, they will stand in front of someone with a gun because the law says they can't be shot! The signs say nothing about a specific speed. The law says slower traffic keep right. Period! If you are being passed by a car on the right, you are in the wrong lane.

Let me go left

I live off Cowan Road between the bridges. When traveling south, I have to make a left turn to get to my home. If I drive in the right lane, no one will let me merge left even if my blinker is on from East Taylor forward. That is why I continue to drive in the left lane. No courtesy!

Look in the mirror

When I turn on the TV and hear the political candidates ranting, raving, lying, misleading, and clowning, I'm so grateful that I don't have to resort to that to get what I want from life. I won't ever be rich nor powerful as they are, but I can look at myself in the mirror each day and feel good.

Recycled Paul

Ron and Rand Paul have been running for president for years. Cycle after cycle, the American people reject their candidacies. These guys can't take no for an answer! Must run in the family.

Questionable candidate

How is it that Ms. Clinton is still running for president? There is already enough information in her emails to at minimum prove she is unworthy to deal with the secrets of our nation. There may even be enough to try her for felonies.

Right about guns

To the nice person who wrote they had a few proposals for registered gun owners, I have a novel idea. Whose business is it whether I own a gun or not. No one's. The right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

Get on board

I observed a Super Synergy Session at Anniston Elementary on Friday. The program is Leader In Me. I was really impressed with the involvement of the students and the staff. They talked about The Seven Habits. It's a program for all, not just for some. Everyone was engaged and that's how school should be. I really do believe this is something a child will keep with them for the rest of their lives. They sure won't forget it. You will be hooked. You can tell the school principal and staff along with the students put a lot into this program. Awesome job! Get on board!
