MOULTRIE — Buzzards
“A visitor to Moultrie asked me, ‘What’s with all these buzzards?’ I was a bit embarrassed but I had to explain that they have been here a while and they tend to roost on our water tower. The visitor gave me this look like he had just stepped in something. Is there anyway to address this so that we don’t get referred to as the ‘buzzard city?’"
“I was watching one of those ‘doomsday’ shows on cable last night. I hope that these people don’t reflect a large portion of our society. That would be scary!"
“Yes, Mr. Walden, I’ve had those nights when I couldn’t turn my mind off. I’ve actually overhauled an old 289 Ford engine in my mind as opposed to going to sleep. I enjoy reading about regular stuff even though I’ve heard some people refer to your columns as slightly irregular. I get a kick out of your observations. It beats the heck out of that same old political jumbo. Thanks for those bright spots."
Make it safe
“Can someone in authority do something to make the bike trail parking lot safer? There's no other place to park, and it's stressful to think your car is being damaged while you enjoy the trail."
“Maybe it’s time we had some citizen patrols to deal with these people breaking into cars. I watched a young man in a shopping center parking lot the day before Christmas. He was going along testing door handles, apparently looking for a vehicle that was unlocked. I followed him and he became aware I was there and took off."
“About the guns: Those 'military assault weapons' you are referring to, are not military assault weapons, they just look like them. They are also perfectly legal to hunt with. Educate yourself before talking about a subject you are ignorant in."
“President Obama vowed he would never raise taxes on the middle class and the poor.
"On January 1, 2013 there will be a 15% federal tax on all medical devises. Another surprise from Obamacare.
"So if you plan to purchase a walker, crutches, hearing aids, oxygen tank, or any other medical devise, you might want to call the President and wish him a Happy No Tax New Year!"
“Just imagine, if we took all our citizens cars and vehicles away declaring them to be illegal then we wouldn't have anymore DUI's or people killed by vehicles. Seatbelts wouldn't matter!
"Now, if we took guns away they are a little bit harder to conceal.
"The NRA has suggested an armed guard in every school. Sounds like a smart idea to me!"
