It’s Friday, let’s see what’s on your mind.

About what you would do if you were in a hurricane zone, Karen says she would evacuate just to be safe and rebuild later. Others prefer the adventure of riding it out.

About sex offenders being put back on the street, Diane says maybe if they could re-program them inside.

Ron says they’re back on the street because we don’t have a justice system, just a legal system.

Allan says since there is no cure, maybe they should be executed.

About a Daylight Saving Time referendum costing millions, several say the government doesn’t care – there are lots more tax dollars where those came from.

About dropping the speed limits around playgrounds, Debbie says we also need to teach the children not to run out onto the street without looking and assuming the cars will stop. She sees that happening too often.

About the drop in speeding ticket revenue, Ryan says just put out more photo radar trucks and the money will come right back.

About the fentanyl deaths, Gary wants a three strike law or manslaughter charges for dealers.  He says there must be serious consequences.

Let me know what you think about that and have a great weekend.
