If you want to avoid next spring’s rush and have your lawnmower gone for a couple of weeks, you should do what I did. In contacted CPI on Bowers Road. My mower was picked up, readied for next spring and returned to me all in less time than it takes to read this.

Well, that might be slight exaggeration, but not much. This service was performed at a reasonable price and deserves to be recognized.

Touched by story

Nancy Elliott’s story (Wednesday, Oct. 26 issue) on the Ed-Tech kids building a house for Habitat for Humanity was just wonderful. I am a huge supporter of Habitat for Humanity, but I had no idea the local building trades class was involved in this good work.

National priority

President Obama’s proposals to make it more affordable for people to go to a university are awesome. If this country is to compete in the world marketplace for intelligent ideas than we need intelligent people — like Steve Jobs.

Without the ability of our young people to get a good education, and not be in debt the rest of their lives, should be a national priority. I wish the Republican candidates would be asked to define how they make school more affordable. This must be a national issue.

Lights on for safety

Halloween is coming (Monday). Way too many people around here drive without their headlines on around dusk. I worry that some kid is going to get hit crossing a road because they didn’t see a car coming.

Be safe and turn on the lights.

In this mess together

A lot of people complain in The County Press about the Tea Party and the Occupy people, but why? This is a healthy sign of a democracy — the fact that people can disagree. As long as we can stop the name calling and finger pointing. We’re all in this mess together, and together we need to work to make life better for all Americans, not just for Republicans or Democrats.

Show some respect

The people with posters that portray President Obama as Hitler in front of the post office make me sick.

He’s our president.
