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

In Dou­glass (Mont.) I don’t know if the Zern track hous­ing devel­op­ment of 240 low in­come town homes off of Jack­son Road in Gil­bertsville has been ap­proved. If not, this would be a good start­ing point to ask the su­per­vi­sors why they are push­ing these de­vel­op­ments. I think 240 low­in­come town homes on a 20-some acre lot, which is quite small, will cause a lot of other types of prob­lems down the road in Gil­bertsville. Con­cerned Tax­payer

To North Coventry Yan­kee, first of all you ought to know what you’re talk­ing about when you say Boy­er­town is com­plain­ing about build­ing a new sta­dium. That’s right, our taxes are high enough now and I don’t know what you’re talk­ing about this Trump tax cut. You’re liv­ing in an­other world. You bet­ter wake up. Joanne

Now is the time that we can bring back the USS Pue­blo from North Korea. It was taken il­le­gally. It’s been put on dis­play for all these years. It is time for it to come back to us and it is still a com­mis­sioned ship. Ed from Oaks

Hope­fully the 76ers will not draft an­other drama queen. That’s the last thing we need from the guy from Cleve­land. You have enough good play­ers, de­velop them, save your money. Re­mem­ber how much money you blew on Chris Webber. So just think it out, get good play­ers and this and that and ev­ery­thing will come out fine. You have a good group of play­ers to be­gin with. You don’t need LeBron James, noth­ing but trou­ble. The Big Buck

I’d like to thank my good friend and teacher of math­e­mat­ics at Owen J. Roberts High School, Tom Barr, 35 years of teach­ing. Con­grat­u­la­tions my friend, well done.

Thanks to all the new reg­u­la­tions and oh yeah, park­ing me­ter price go­ing up again. If you want peo­ple to come to down­town Pottstown there should be free park­ing or al­most free park­ing. The in­crease means I will not be go­ing to any of the shops any­more. I’ll be go­ing to the big mall that’s off of Route 100. Thank you Pottstown. A Se­nior Cit­i­zen

When Trump leaves the White House it will be in hand­cuffs or a straight jacket.

This is to Lady Di. You said to honor the peo­ple who laid their lives down who fought for this coun­try. Yes, but what about your pres­i­dent who says John McCain is a loser be­cause he got caught? An­swer that for me.

An­thony Bour­dain did not com­mit sui­cide. He re­cently did an in­ter­view with Elon Musk and was get­ting ready to tell more.

The Y build­ing be­ing open and in use is good for Pottstown how­ever the YMCA re­sources be­ing avail­able to the peo­ple who need them is more im­por­tant. The south pool with ramp ac­cess, warm wa­ter and whirlpool is needed by se­niors. Both pools for chil­dren, swim lessons, swim team and lap swim­ming for adults are things that can’t be eas­ily re­placed by other re­sources ac­ces­si­ble in Pottstown. With­out these ir­re­place­able re­sources the rest is win­dow dress­ing. Se­nior Cit­i­zen

I was in Hill Top Drive In in Sanatoga re­cently and it has changed own­ers. The food is still great and a rea­son­able price. The lady that owns it is a great per­son. Let’s keep go­ing there for sup­port and help keep the Hill Top where it’s been for the last 50, 60 years.

NFL NBA don’t mean a thing to me. I could care less about those over­paid bums.

Every per­son who is crit­i­ciz­ing Pres­i­dent Trump for can­cel­ing the Ea­gles meet­ing seems to be hos­tile to him. If he had the meet­ing then the same peo­ple would be ar­gu­ing from the op­po­site side and say­ing he should have can­celled it. Log­i­cal Bob

The rea­son why the peo­ple in Boy­er­town are up­set about the sta­dium is be­cause they put an ad­di­tion on the school they didn’t need and the sta­dium was deemed dan­ger­ous years prior to the school im­prove­ment. So Mr. Yan­kee, use your head. It has noth­ing to do with Trump.

Ap­par­ently Den­nis Rod­man did a good job as a ne­go­tia­tor in Sin­ga­pore and Trump went along for pic­tures.

Well we know that Chan­nel 12 WPVI pub­lic TV is no longer on a fundraiser right now be­cause they dropped the wattage, it’s sum­mer time. So you can’t even re­ceive the sta­tions here in Pottstown. Well maybe we don’t have to re­ceive their sta­tions ei­ther when it comes time for the fundrais­ers. And they can think about that.

I’ve dis­cov­ered the one good thing about me be­ing wrong is the joy it brings to oth­ers.
