Tip your hat
I want to thank the News-Press for putting the article about June 6, 1944, on the front page. My dad and his generation lived through this, and it was their line in the sand. And I want to thank the News-Press for mentioning it, many years, it’s been forgotten. God bless all those who served in the United States Army around the world, especially those that went in on Omaha and all the rest of the beaches. If not for them, we wouldn’t be able to call “It’s your call” and complain about this or that or about something down the street that we have no control over. Thank God they did what they did. We need to remember every one of those. If you see somebody out that looks like a veteran, walk up and thank him for his service. It will put a smile on his face and put one on yours, too.
Show to run
I don’t think it is fair that presidents refuse to show their tax returns, I have to show my last year’s tax returns to apply for a loan. I have a solution. The last four people in the running to become our next president have to show their tax returns or be eliminated. Solves that problem. Don’t show your tax return, you don’t run for president.
Is it possible for our council to print out a sheet on the rules and regulations for landlords? Perhaps a list of what we can do and can’t do. I have called for answers about the things I don’t understand, and if I talk to two different people, I receive two different answers. Right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing. And me as a landlord, I don’t have a clue what the rules are. Please send a printout.
A new drug
It’s wrong that so many cities like St. Joseph want to get rid of tobacco. But boy, you can have your marijuana and you can have that stupid kratom or whatever it is on the streets and it’s a known health hazard, but you want to get rid of cigarettes.
People are bummed out because our Riverfront development plan looks like a bad investment. Look at the beautiful riverbluffs we have. Why couldn’t the city expand Wyeth Hill Park to the north and build a better access road? There could be campsites and a cable lift gondola car system leading down to the casino and now Remington Nature Center with a gift shop and a snack bar at the top of the hill. If you build it, they will come.
Super article on Neal Hook. He is an outstanding man with great qualities. In the 21 years I have worked with him, I have never heard one curse word come out of his mouth. He is a great person, has great qualities and a great coach, a wonderful addition to St. Joseph Christian School.
