VOX POP - Aug 27

More money for the police department

Have you ever noticed how many people make illegal or improper left turns? If the police department wants to start getting some money in for whatever reason, all they have to do is sit at intersections and watch people because they are constantly turning improperly. The other thing is that I believe there is some kind of law about stuff hanging from your rear view mirror. I would like to see that enforced. I just passed three people who have a bunch of junk hanging there. It must be a distraction. Police, check into it.

Stop showing favoritism

If the school is truly always looking to expand its opportunities for students that can be affordable and sustainable, they would have worked with the courses that brought in money to see how to bring in more. Instead they cut the restaurant, automotive and marketing. Stop showing favoritism to sports and look at expanding or bringing back the educational opportunities you cut.
