Where readers share what’s on their minds.

Motorcycles are loud for one reason only, the drivers want to make a lot of noise. Why else do they always rev their engines before they turn the engine off and rev the engine when they start the bike? Doppler effect, being heard before drivers see them is all a bunch of nonsense. I have neighbors with motorcycles, and they're always noisy.

Sunday on Hwy. 34 two cars took out my mailbox. I went to the post office and was informed that I have to get my box up as soon as possible, but I can't even get the sheriff’s report for three business days, and I learned that the post office cannot bring it to my door and that I can hold my mail but cannot pick it up daily at the post center. What kind of customer service is that?

I complimented a friend's mustache on Facebook and she unfriended me.

I understood Lucas Pepperdine's article in the Thursday paper, and it made perfect sense. I did not, however, like Dennis Thompson's article on the same page.

There's never been a better location for a roundabout than Hammock/Baker Road and Posey Road. The folks from Hammock/Baker won't ever stop and let the ones on Posey Road go through. They just slow down and blow through it. Major accidents will happen soon.

Roundabouts are the brainchild of our dazed and confused federal government. We do not need a roundabout at Greentop Road and Hwy. 29. There was a worse traffic problem at Raymond Hill Road/Major Road/Fisher Road. A roundabout was rejected there, and a traffic light solved the problem.

The blinkie thing on your car is really cool. If you push the left lever down, it lets people know you may or may not be thinking of turning left (a la izquierda). If you push the left lever up, it lets people know you may or may not be thinking of turning right (a la derecha). Really helps prevent confusion at intersections.
