“The barking and howling of the dogs in town has got to stop. I t is beyond out of control. Everyday, all day long. If I were chained to a tree day and night, I would howl too. Please have some consideration for your dog and for us that choose not to own them."
“So are the ‘Friends of the Park’, friends of the park, or friends for Chet. Come on, you are the very group that should be supporting the park, not a person.

“Did you hear about the bank failures in Canada last year? There weren’t any because they don’t allow subprime loans. Canadians don’t allow liberal government mandated reckless mortgage lending.

Don't stop there
“Your editorial on cigarettes and a tax increase is valid, but why stop with cigarettes...why not add an equal tax on beer, wine and liquor? They are just as damaging to our health and tax our medical(both body and mind) facilities as well."
“Unfortunately I don't think it will matter how much you raise the tax on cigarettes, the smokers are still going to buy them. They will just gripe and moan about how it's unfair and it really isn't a health risk and they pay taxes so why shouldn't the government pay for their unhealthy choices."
