Note of thanks
I want to say thank you to Walmart for the security truck and officers. I’m sorry it has come to this, but I really appreciate that Walmart is protecting us, their customers. Thank you.
Has anybody noticed that the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives has passed 208 bills, or more, sent them to the Senate, and the Senate hasn’t passed hardly anything? Hasn’t even brought hardly anything to the Senate floor? At least if the Senate didn’t like what the House passed, they ought to vote on it and say they don’t. The reason they won’t is they don’t want the voters to know how they’re thinking.
Commenting on the Medicare article, being an expert in Medicare, Medicaid and public health care, I will tell you St. Joe’s problem is we don’t have enough employers, a large enough percentage, to balance the very large Medicare and Medicaid populations we have. And that’s why we are a poor city.
Has anybody thought if you close the three high schools, what will happen to the property values in those neighborhoods? We’ve already got the east end with their properties dropped around 40 percent or more, because of everybody moving out and rental property becoming the thing here. Why don’t we talk about how only one school will affect our tax base?
Hit the button
I don’t know what the policy is for UPS or the post office or FedEx, but I’ve been home and had a package delivered and nobody rings my doorbell to let me know there’s a package there. It sat on the porch a couple hours before I even noticed it. So I would like to see if the delivery guys can start ringing the doorbell and let somebody know the package is there. I’d appreciate it.
Face the truth
Facial expressions tell you everything, and looking at Joe Biden, it just ain’t there. He doesn’t get it.
The buildings in this city are not the cause of the problems that the school administration’s got. It’s the administration itself. The superintendent and board members of education all need a shot of common sense.
