‘God’s justice system’ needs to be adopted
We don’t have a justice system. It is just a system.
With all the shootings and murders in the news, especially in the last couple of weeks, I have not heard one lawmaker or politician suggest the swift and just punishment of death for murderers — not one.
Murderers have more rights than their victims. We live in a culture that saves the rapists and murders the most innocent babies among us. Something is wrong with this picture. We need to get back to God’s justice system, and then, and only then, will we see this kind of violence come to an end. Think about it!

Unkept homes dot more than north end
I too would like to know what it takes to get neighbors to mow their yards, put trash in a trash can and not throw it in the alley on the ground.
Two homes need to be torn down. I have written an email to the mayor on this issue and, of course, he has not responded. This is a big problem in this city.
There are some well-kept homes on my street, but unfortunately there are more that aren’t. The alley of Markland Avenue, between Armstrong and Webster streets to which my garage backs up, is just disgusting. Weeds, trash, high grass and nasty homes.
If the mayor would come take a look, he would see what I mean. If it was his neighborhood, it would be a different story.
Truth about fairness in our property taxes
When the Legislature’s Blue Ribbon Commission begins its look at the state’s taxes this summer, invariably there will be talk of business needing to pay its “fair share.” That’s certainly true, but what is fair?
