• This is in response to the person stating that Democrats will not take your guns. … Look at the mess in Virginia when it became Democratic a year to two years ago. If Biden and Harris are elected, Kamala Harris has already made the comment she’ll get Biden to sign an executive order for the A.G. to collect all our guns. So, I don’t know where you’re getting your information …

• I come off the interstate every day at Corydon, Ind., going south in front of Walmart and Cracker Barrel and all that. It just seeks to amaze me why is there Johnsongrass and bushes and trees 10 feet tall. You would think the decency of this town and Walmart and those businesses out there could at least hire somebody and chip in a co-op thing and pay somebody to either mow that or the state should have the courtesy to keep the town clean down there. It’s an eyesore. It looks bad. And every time I go through there I’m just thinking can’t they do something better than that?

• My daughter’s cat was recently shot in the leg by a BB gun, which shattered the bone in her leg and it had to be amputated. She was shot on our property at the Town of Corydon water plant. That’s private property, and they have it posted. This is a cat that is afraid of her own shadow; wouldn’t hurt anyone. What makes a person wake up one day and think to themselves “I’m going to go out and shoot a cat today”? There are laws against killing defenseless animals on private property. Please believe we will be watching out from now on. Also, this was a costly procedure to have the cat’s leg amputated. My daughter works hard for her money, and times are hard for all right now with COVID-19.

• With the development of Rice Island, could we look forward to a bocce ball court or courts with organized team sign ups for both women, men and youth?

• I listen to the political ads on television, of which we have one after the other right now, and ones for this administration that’s in office right now and the other politicians that support this administration say they will keep the economy open and protect our elders. Well, I am an elder and I’d like to ask these (politicians) just exactly what they’re doing to protect the elderly. …

• I’d like to thank The Corydon Democrat for saluting our military. My father, Sam Riley, in loving memory. Proves right there in that paper that all lives do matter, and we honor each and every one of them. Thank you, Corydon Democrat.

• I watched the news the other night and the president … told the American people that he’s getting control of the COVID virus. I wonder what dream was that? …

• … Kudos to Allison Schalk for trying to improve internet for the school systems, access to high-speed internet. It would be nice if these council members could … vote yes and spend more money to improve the schools in this county and the lives of our students.

• I was calling about the state and the county approaches to bridges. Beats everything up and makes all kind of noise with ramps and dumpsters and stuff. Why don’t they fix the approaches? Would eliminate a lot of the problems with people blowing tires out and tearing up the front ends of their cars.

• I’m surprised at the people that’s not wearing masks because the number of the COVID cases keeps rising and rising. There are more coming about every day … I think the masks should be made mandatory.

• This call goes out to the mask police out there. First, it is not your responsibility to determine who wears a mask or how they wear them. Mind your own house. Protect your own house. Period. Second, those of you that believe a mask will keep you safe is not properly informed or educated in the (transmission) of diseases. Did you ask businesses if they were disinfecting every product in the store every one to five minutes? Did you ask or see bank employees disinfecting buttons, bank ATMs or their vacuum senders every one to five minutes? Did you personally get disinfected every time you walk into a store or your car? I bet not. With that being said, did you know over a third of the people in the United States have been exposed to tuberculosis and have never known. You could be a carrier of many contagious diseases, bacteria, viruses without even knowing until your first symptom. By that time, it’s too late. Humans live with parasites on and in their bodies every day, not to mention bacteria and all sorts of viruses produced by the millions on every square inch of the skin every minute we breathe. Stop policing others and mind your own. There are more important things to complain about.

• Well, I just come back from Floyd County, which was surprising gas was cheaper uptown than Harrison County. What’s that make you think? …

• I’d like to thank the lady with blonde hair in the green car who paid for my lunch today at McDonald’s in Corydon at 2:30. It did not go unnoticed or unappreciated, and it’s nice to know there are still kind people in the world in this day and age. Thanks very much.

• All you hear about is to get your pet spayed and neutered. Vets want to charge anywhere from $200 to $400 if they have time. No wonder (many) go to the shelter and then get killed. …

• Just come from Floyd County. I passed up several gas stations then I got back here in Corydon and kicked myself in the butt. Gas was 12 cents cheaper than Harrison County up in Floyd County. What a surprise. Usually, it’s the other way around. Harrison County’s always got high gas (prices), but I’m going to keep hoping I can make it over to Brandenburg to get my gas any more. It was really surprising. …
