  • The Humane society does a wonderful job and needs more money soon. Shame on anyone that thinks those people are not going above and beyond the call of duty.

    Our local police have the same call and answer it just as well.

    I am kinda surprised that you would enter into a word game. Saying no taxes were used to buy the golf cart.


    Call it a fee, call it what you like.

    Even your own article stated:

    "In the past, the LPD had to borrow golf carts or "mule" type vehicles from area vendors when the crowded events at the park took place."

    So they got it done without spending this money. Or maybe they could think outside the box and borrow the mule that sits in the fire department bay, or the four wheeler.

    Patrolling the park doesn't mean gas. How about getting one your feet and walking ? Why is the notion of good ole fashion walking now outside the box?

    "it also is saving money."

    Probably the most obscene remark you have made. I will now make a simple statement that my wife is tired of hearing: You cannot spend money and save money at the same time." Saving money would look like this article in the paper:

    Linton police have decided to continue to borrow golf carts for events and use the fees collected on cart registration to help the Humane Society.

    The mayoral race is where you get to chose the person that will guide how your tax dollars are spent. It will be more important this time.

    Our local children are a treasure and should be treated as such.

  • Oh now come on, Lets pick the fly crap out of the pepper! The LPD invested this money into a cart was a good idea. They have to inspect all the carts then enforce the laws on them for the carts to be on city streets. Why not use that money in the department.

    Jeez, the GCHS cannot even pick up the animals the are asked to. So they should come up with more money making ideas.

    I tried to donate to the GCHS by giving them a bunch of pet crates. 5 or 6, they would not even open the door (I knocked because they was closed)and say thanks. Someone was in there feeding, I saw them thru the window. So I left the crates on the porch. That will be the last time I give them anything!
