The Mercury (Pottstown, PA) - - LOCAL NEWS -

I just want to say who­ever is get­ting paid to man­age the roads in Pottstown and the con­di­tion that they’re in they are ob­vi­ously pay­ing this per­son en­tirely too much money. Th­ese roads are a dis­grace.

To all high school pub­lic an­nounc­ers call­ing foot­ball games, I’ve been to a lot of my grand­son’s games and at ev­ery one of them oth­ers and my­self have seen kids and adults with their hats on, tex­ting and kids run­ning around not even look­ing at the flag or putting their hands over their hearts. The an­nounc­ers should call th­ese peo­ple out and not start the an­them un­til ev­ery­one con­forms. Where are our great teach­ers teach­ing our kids re­spect for the flag? 500 Miler

Is there any­where around here where I could prop­erly dis­pose of house­hold al­ka­line bat­ter­ies size AA, AAA, C and D? Peo­ple tell me I can throw them in the trash but that doesn’t sound right. Any­body know where I could get rid of th­ese?

I re­cently con­tacted Rep. Tom Quigley re­gard­ing the Tower Health and Blue Cross ne­go­ti­a­tions. His con­cern and in­ter­est was greatly ap­pre­ci­ated. Thanks Tom for all your help and rapid re­sponse on this mat­ter. Will def­i­nitely vote for you again.

On Sun­day me and my fam­ily and friends at­tended the 14th an­nual bas­ket raf­fle at St. Joseph Church in Spring City. It was a great event. There were 144 bas­kets, a 50/50 raf­fle, plus sweep­stakes prizes, grand prizes to win, even a trip to Las Ve­gas. Many thanks to all the won­der­ful spon­sors and con­trib­u­tors for be­ing so gen­er­ous. The ladies also of­fered lots of de­li­cious good­ies, punch and cof­fee. Great job done by all. Can’t wait un­til next year. A Happy Parish­ioner, Fam­ily and Friends

JT, you told us a good story but you for­got to give us the name of the wo­man that got fired from NBC for call­ing the vic­tims in Las Ve­gas Trump sup­port­ers un­less of course it’s fake news at its best. This is what Rus­sia did dur­ing the elec­tion.

This is for Dr. Edith Behr and her staff at the Pottstown Hospi­tal Out­pa­tient Cen­ter. You guys are amaz­ing. Thank you, thank you and thank you. Just wanted to say we love you. Terry and Rich Moore

Mike Pence wasn’t out­raged when his run­ning mate de­meaned a 19-year-old beauty queen. Mike Pence wasn’t pa­tri­otic when his run­ning mate de­meaned a Gold Star fam­ily. His an­tics the other day at the foot­ball game were fake. Jay Miller The two thieves spent over $200,000 for a po­lit­i­cal stunt. Now be­cause it caused an up­roar they want peo­ple to do­nate to pay it back. Th­ese thieves why do they not pay for it out of their own pocket? They have more money than the Amer­i­can tax­pay­ers. They are truly dis­gust­ing and true thieves. Fact

This is to all those driv­ers who are tail­gat­ing peo­ple who are al­ready do­ing 70 mph and es­pe­cially to the white Chevy van that tail­gated me through Ex­eter Town­ship on Tues­day morn­ing. We were al­ready do­ing 70 so there’s no rea­son for you to be three feet off my bumper. Seventy in a 55 mph zone is al­ready too fast. So un­less you want to eat my bumper get off of it. We were al­ready speed­ing.

Re­pub­li­can Tim Mur­phy of Penn­syl­va­nia has an­nounced he will re­tire at the end of his term in lieu of al­le­ga­tions ask­ing his mis­tress to ter­mi­nate her preg­nancy. This guy hounded women who wanted to ter­mi­nate their preg­nancy all dur­ing his ca­reer. Just an­other Re­pub­li­can who just lies about their re­li­gious be­liefs. Shame, shame, shame. Clark S. Kent

I agree, what hap­pened to Pottstown? It’s go­ing to the dump. There’s no stores, the busi­nesses are all go­ing, there are home­less peo­ple walk­ing around, pit­bulls com­ing out of nowhere, lit­ter all over the place. Thurs­day night the farmer’s mar­ket is a good thing but it’s not a lot to of­fer to the peo­ple there. The old farmer’s mar­ket was a good place to go but they closed down. This whole town is fall­ing apart. It’s not get­ting any bet­ter.

Pence’s pub­lic­ity stunt cost tax­pay­ers al­most a quar­ter of a mil­lion dol­lars. He never in­tended to watch the game. At a time when the White House is be­ing in­ves­ti­gated for ex­ces­sive travel ex­penses Pence does it again. The in­tent was to stir up more trou­ble. Of course his boss had his fin­gers in it.

I have al­ways thought that pro ath­letes and peo­ple in the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try were flakes long be­fore Don­ald Trump ever ran for pres­i­dent. They prove it ev­ery day that they’re flakes.

Re­pub­li­can Sen. Bob Corker of Ten­nessee an hon­est and coura­geous man looks at Don­ald Trump and it in­fu­ri­ates him be­cause he sees the em­peror with­out his clothes. Frat­tbak
