• “When is Highspire going to start enforcing the leash law and cleaning up after your pets? It’s spring and there’s nothing worse than opening your doors and windows just to have your whole house smell like animal droppings.”

 

• “I read an article the other day that said in the past 10 years the number of volunteer firefighter in Pennsylvania has gone from 300,000 to 60,000 volunteers. It made me think how lucky we are to have our volunteer fire department. Thank you.”

 

• “Am I a racist because I don’t love everyone? Where does it say I have to like or love everyone? If I don’t like a certain group, that’s my right. I have the same rights as the blacks, gays, if they want to complain, and trust me they do complain a lot. Waaah, waaah, waaah. Gay people make me sick – and you black people always saying the white people are prejudice, that may be true in some of them but don’t forget some black people are prejudice, too. And the biggest thing most blacks forget or they don’t know is that the white man set them free. Why do you think the Civil War was fought? So the white man owes you nothing – they sacrificed enough in the Civil War.”

 

• “I don’t understand why people who speak out and oppose gay-ism get into trouble or have to go to rehab, etc, etc. That’s their right if they don’t believe in it. Quit telling everyone they have to accept gay-ism. It’s supposed to be a free country. Quit pushing your beliefs on people. People, stick up for your rights.”

 

• “I think Borough Council is trying to do a good job at trying to modernize this town. However, I also think they’re doing a disservice by cutting some of the borough services. An analogy would be they’re trying to paint the town while doing graffiti at the same time. Wake up, “frivolous five.”

 

• “Does anyone know how I sign my student up for the Olmsted Rec. Summer Playground program? The program is less than $2 a day for all summer and I know spaces are limited. I heard this year hours were extended. My child enjoyed it last year and wants to attend this summer. Thank you.”

 

• “It’s so ethically wrong to publish some people who get arrested and not others because of who they know. Spare me with sob stories!”

  (Editor’s note: We do not withhold the names of those who are charged by police.)

 

• “I guess in the end the truth does come out eventually. I was once told, ‘two sides to every story, and the one you don’t hear is usually the truth.’ Disappointing. But do hope this young man learns and heads out on the right road. He is a very likable guy, and truly think he means well.”
