Beautiful park deserves praise

Kudos! Recently, seeking a place to take some casual family pictures, we were told of Coronation Park, just north of the Fleming School site. We were delighted to find a beautifully arranged and tended floral garden, which provided a colourful backdrop for our pictures. Thank you to a wonderful lady and nearby citizens who plant and care for this gem for everyone’s pleasure.

Weedy welcome

Congratulations Brandon, you are well on your way to becoming the burdock capital of Manitoba. The flowers in the median on 18th street as you enter from the north are truly beautiful, but they are outdone by the hundreds of burdock on the west side of the street as you come down the hill to Grand Valley Road. Burdock, for anyone lucky enough not to know what they are, they stand from six to eight feet tall and are covered with hundreds of burrs about an inch in circumference that stick to everything they touch — all animal’s fur, people’s clothes and even machinery. They are then spread to grow wherever the carrier stops to rid itself of the irritation caused by the sharp Velcro-like burrs.

Don’t duck out on driving responsibly

For the people who did not like the person driving slowly and came to a sudden stop for the ducks, please drive carefully, allow at least one vehicle length for every 10 km/h of speed for reaction time and stopping distance. Too many people follow right up your rear bumper and never think of the consequences. The 100 km/h is the max speed limit not what you should be doing. Many farm vehicles travel slower than the posted speed ... Caution is advised.

Keep your yards clean

Why is Manitoba Housing not keeping their yards cut? It says on your lease to keep your yards clean and grass cut. Don’t use the rain as an excuse when you are on welfare and stay at home daily. Very disgusting walking my dog by. Shame on you.

I’d like an answer to this one

When and where will the new mayoral candidates say there will be no tax increases in 2015?
