When I was trying to absorb the how's and why's in the explaining the proper way to use the roundabouts on Binkley I became a little confused. As I enter the roundabout, I have to look left, then right and watch the center for a large turning vehicle before proceeding, so basically a simple stop sign or light would serve as a much more reasonable solution instead of all the money to spend trying to solve it this way. I can already hear the snow plow drivers speaking their mind about how to plow the street.
I am totally out of my mind when I see our elected officials want to legalize marijuana after reading day after day, articles about the possible damage to the brain, which every body already knows.
Fourth of July was a beautiful day, with largest crowd I can remember for the parade and park get together. Every body was in good spirits, with lots of sacks of goodies being passed out, but I had one disappointment with the hundreds of flags given away. I had a hole in the top of my cap so I could display mine, but hundreds went undisplayed. A thought came into my mind after the parade that with the enormous amount of money it costs to put on a program this size maybe something could be done. Frequently on the front of the newspapers I get, there are stick-on advertisements.
Having worked for an oil company starting in 1955, I am amazed that every little aspect of building roads or sites to drill on the North Slope requires millions of more dollars when they have been studying it since the 1940s. All of the oil companies know exactly how to perform every operation to start pumping oil out of the ground. Billions of dollars have been paid out of tax money to pay the exorbitant wages, making so many people to do the same job over and over again. All they should have to do is lay out a map for a road and area to drill in and get to work.
With little to do but watch TV I become amused at the pictures of all those children who have been invading the U.S. from neighboring countries to the south of us. Either my eyes are bad or something else is wrong. Most of the pictures I've seen are of people who are adults, maybe over 18 years of age, yet the news people all see them as children. Who is promoting and paying the way for them to come north? It would be of great interest to me.
On July 4, I had a small accident when stepping down the one step to the ground from my porch. I have a door handle mounted on the post and I grabbed it as we always do and when stepping down, slipped and in trying to stop my fall, hit the post supporting the stairs above. My skin is very fragile as I have been taking Prednisone drug to help with my breathing for more than 25 years. It causes the thinning of the skin and I have many scratches where the skin has been torn loose. Normally I have used a Band-aid to pull the skin back together and hold it while it heals.

First off, I would be proud to put my name in the hat to answer to Eric Derleth's column about how wonderful marijuana or (pot) is. (Editor's note: Derleth's comments ran as a paid advertisement in Monday's Clarion.)
