As stated in earlier comments, gun regulations do not remove the right of ours to bear arms, and the second amendment is still intact. I am a gun owner, and applaud these new laws.
I will always remember driving by in the spring while Vernon was fixing his fences, and he would ALWAYS look up and wave, even though I am sure he had no idea who I was. Doing the arithmetic, he was out fixing his fences into his 80's.
Now can we do something about the rudeness at the shuttle buses in the Meadows Lot? I was ashamed of the behavior of others, pushing and shoving to get on the bus, when the group waiting was smaller than the capacity of the bus.
If these two were working for someone at the time of the accident, shouldn't the employer pay the medical bills?
I find it ironic that Joe Kboudi is trying to fundraise. I have walked into his store numerous times to ask for either items or money for various causes, and have gotten either the cheapest items imaginable (and thus not usable) or nothing.
Whoever is running this program also has a lot to learn about fundraising. I donated $100 earlier this summer when I heard that they needed money, and have I received any acknowledgment, receipt or a thank-you? NO!
The real issue is that the bicyclist was approaching from the driver's right, technically riding on the wrong side of the road. Drivers do not look right when turning right, because the traffic is coming from the left. As a bicyclist, I have been involved in the same kind of accident while on a bike path. As a driver, I have almost hit a bicyclist that was on the wrong side of the road.
The moral is three-fold: 1) As a bicyclist - if you are approaching a car from its right side while they are preparing to turn right, you need to BE VERY CAREFUL! 2) As a driver, you need to be aware of bike paths and sidewalks frequented by bikes, and look both ways at those intersections. 3) as a bicyclist - NEVER ride on the Left side of the street (which I see quite often).
Many other Steamboaters participated in the Tour: Lee Cox, Cyndy Mansur, Alex Berger, Tom Keenan, Craig Olsheim, Marty O'Leary, Jimmy Westlake, Jim and Madeline Vail on a tandem, and 9 members of the Over the Hill Gang.
I am sick and tired of people saying that teachers don't need a raise because they don't work very many days in a year. How many of you have jobs where you are at your job for 8 hours, but then you have to do 4 hours of work at home (or at school after the students are gone) each night, and 8 hours of work over the weekend?
