Why the flip-flop?
We need a new
Now, we see where the board has approved female students wearing flip-flops sandals to school. How can this be? What are they trying to do, crate a sloppy set of young women? It is so disgusting to see well-dressed young women in these cheap looking sandals. It just as like seeing young men dressed in suits wearing sneakers.
The wearing of these shoes would never have been tolerated in schools in the
We need to see the kids in uniforms rather than them dressed with their bellies and their underwear showing, wearing flip flops and the boys’ pants falling off their hind parts. Come on school board please try to administer sensibly.
In praise of Publix
I must take time out to congratulate Publix Supermarket for showing responsible leadership in the business community. The supermarket chain said that they would be fitting all its stores with generators, so that they can continue operating after a hurricane.
After Wilma, when so many residents lost their electricity it was days before we could get even the basic supply to buy, and forget getting fresh milk, meat or even water. With the generators Publix will be providing an invaluable service after the impact of another storm, which is jost likely again this year.
I hope that other vital businesses, like gas stations and restaurants will follow Publix’s lead. The extra investment would be worth it. It is better to be able to operate after a storm than to lose business and money. As a matter of fact, insurance companies should insist that the companies they insure have generators so that they can continue functioning and earn revenue after a storm.
We again offer congratulations to Publix.
Where’s the leisure page?
I’ve been reading your newspaper for quite some time now and although I enjoy reading the paper a lot, there is something missing from this paper. Cartoons! What happened to your cartoons? It’s not funny reading a newspaper without a leisure page.
I suggest that you add a page or two with jokes, horoscope, puzzles etc. It would make the paper more interesting.
