LETTERS: Ind. 29 interchange; Congress fails electorate

(Continued)

Can we really blame them? Who holds them accountable when they don’t do what they say they were going to do? Who put them where they are. Who keeps hiring them back after they fail in doing what they promised they would do? Would your boss keep you in you position if you didn’t do your job? I would have a conversation with friends and family about politics, and without a doubt some complaining would surface. I had to just look them in the face and say, elections have consequences my friend.

We are the problem. We are making bad choices in the people we are sending to do these jobs that are so very important to our everyday lives. It doesn’t really matter what news that you watch, it matters that you get results from the people that you hired to do the job.

Interchange an accident waiting to happen

On Friday, Oct. 25, at 3:40 p.m. I was going north on Ind. 29 from work and at the new highway a pickup truck was stopped on the west side to cross Ind. 29 and a State Police car was behind him and didn’t even stop! He just followed the pick up right across 29. So many people are doing this and for a policeman to do it is not right. There will be a bad accident out there before long. If you are coming down the east side ramp and you stop at the white line you cannot see south because of the bridge pillars. The whole design is bad. Please put a light out there before it is too late.
