Why is it when I drive through Loveland that I hit about every stop light they have, whereas (if) you go to Fort Collins and go up College Avenue, you might hit one red light but then never have another one. Why is traffic so much better in Fort Collins?
For the person who said someone shouldn’t be clogging up in ER with the flu: First off, people have died from the flu. It can get very severe — dehydration and other complications — so do not question why someone might go to an ER with the flu unless you’re that patient, you don’t have a right to question it. … For those of us who are fortunate enough to be able to have insurance, we can go to a doctor, we can go to an urgent care before having to go to an ER. I challenge you and anyone else who wants to judge someone, to go to an urgent care or doctor and try and get an appointment if you do not have cash up front or an insurance card.
Climate change has been going on since the creation of the planet. Get over the hysteria. Man can’t change the climate.
This is about the high temperatures in the classrooms. Is whole-building air conditioning really the only way to go? You can get indoor portable air conditioners and evaporative coolers that can be placed anywhere in the room that is close to an electric outlet. Can’t those be placed in individual classrooms?
How in the world can they block off Fourth Street, half of it, using it for a public seating … for coffee shops or whatever. I don’t see how they are allowed to get away with this. It’s just amazing.
• In response to Cal Thomas: Please keep him in your paper. Different viewpoints are very important to problem solving. You don’t have to agree, but you need to be aware of different points of view and different databases.
• I am stumped by the same sounding caller that wants the … Cal Thomas columns canceled. Mr. Thomas provides a common, astute approach to today’s problems, along with future considerations. His Christian religion background probably helps qualify his insights, which many might consider helpful. If the Cal Thomas or also the George Will columns were canceled, it would provide a reason for canceling this newspaper.
It’s questionable as to how much these Loveland community survey results should influence decisions. Two-thousand responses in over 70,000 people is hardly a basis for much change. It was interesting to know that higher marks were given for nonessential services like parks and trails. These types of taxpayer-funded facilities are free for people from every corner on earth.
I have to say I’m very disappointed in the city of Loveland for a specific reason. When we were first introduced to the recycling program, it was stressed the containers were to be placed neatly out of sight. A lot of us do that, but too many do not. What an ugly eyesore to have them sit in the streets days after their pickup or, as in our north Loveland area, sitting on the porch, in front of garage doors, in the lawns, you name it. These people have no pride. Please, for those who do want Loveland to be a neat clean little town, enforce the rules you put in place. Rules are rules.
Just a reminder to the Colt driver going down 37th Street (Friday). The speed limit’s 30 miles an hour, not 42.
I’m really getting tired of how little you guys put in the RH line any more. Nine times out of 10 you don’t even have a RH line any more. It’s the best part of your newspaper.
