Mall should paint curbs for safety

I drive a bus for the Tri-State Transit Authority. My route is Huntington to Milton.

The last few months I have seen three women fall at the Huntington Mall as they were leaving the store because of an unmarked curb. Busting their nose, shins, with blood all on their clothes.

The only store that has a yellow painted curb for step-down is Sears.

Please, mall officials, have all of your curbs painted BRIGHT YELLOW, so that no other people fall and injure themselves.

Safety is no accident.

Country needs to turn back to God

In regard to a recent column by Milt Hankins, entitled "Governed have lost clout with government," he mentioned that we (America) have come a long way from the beliefs and/or intentions of John Locke or Thomas Jefferson.

Far more important, we as a nation, have come farther away from God and His teachings, which is why we are in such a spiritual, moral and economic mess. A majority of people are doing what is right in their own eyes, and wanting government to make it legal. What they don't realize, based on world history, they're asking for God's judgment, whether they believe God's Word or not. God is coming and His judgment, sooner than we think! Are you ready?

Food for thought: When people don't know what they believe or stand for, they will fall for anything.

Congratulations to Mayor Canterbury

Congratulations, Tom Canterbury, on the election results.

This message is to the ladies who wanted me to vote for Jim Smith. They said, vote Jim Smith, everybody has had enough of old Tom-Tom, vote Jim Smith.

From the results, I guess everybody didn't get enough of Old Tom!
