A job well-done

I live in the Houserville area and am writing to commend College Township for the successful completion of the recent massive construction project undertaken around the Houserville Road/Puddintown Road/Clover Highlands/Millbrook Marsh area.

Respect flag, national anthem

Lately more and more professional athletes are not standing for our national anthem. This irritates me. If they were playing on a foreign team, something would be done about it. The excuses they use are very lame. Their salaries are more than most people make in their lifetime. Why don’t they do something constructive about the things they say are wrong? Would they give up their lifestyle to do something about these things they say are wrong? These athletes should not be allowed on the field, court, etc., if they want to continue to disrespect our country and the symbols that stand for it.

Playing the long game: Congress and ‘Caddyshack’

The latest financial scandal, courtesy of Wells Fargo, brings out the standard commentary, courtesy of Kerith Strano Taylor. Her conclusions about the fraud, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the need for long-term thinking by Congress merit a reply.

Time for a change

Marylouise Markle, you are angry Hillary Clinton is unable to distance herself from Donald Trump (CDT, 9/17). You spout the narratives about him: proto-fascist, racist, sexist, homophobe, etc.

A costly project

Many remember the 1980s movie “Brewster’s Millions.” Richard Pryor — to inherit a fortune — first has to spend $30 million in 30 days, with nothing to show for it at the end of the month.

Choose Clinton

Each one of us bears the sovereignty here which we transact when we vote, thus showing we are not apart somewhere in abstraction but belong to each other morally in the city which is now the uniting world.

Admirable qualities

I met Eleanor Roosevelt three times in Bayside, N.Y., when I was 9, 10 and 11 years old. I had tea with her and made pencil drawing portraits of her that she took home. Mrs. Roosevelt was there to visit my best friend’s mother, a polio survivor, each year on her birthday. She did this for decades with dozens of people in homes and hospitals across the country.

Not buying it

It was telling to read a dense, word-rich, full-page ad on Sept. 18 from the Toll Brothers. The gist of it is that they are a much-maligned mega-developer that only wants to build a better town for us.

Use reason

Over the past 10 months, lots of my retired teacher friends and I have repeatedly asked this question: Do people not recognize a huckster, a snake oil salesman, a cheap-shot loudmouth and crude self-absorbed self-promoter masquerading as a viable choice for president?
