People are calling for prescriptions for a common decongestant to curb meth labs. I believed you were already limited on purchases. Let's see, insurance doesn't cover my office visits, and doc won't prescribe unless he sees me. Over $100 per visit makes colds and allergies darn inconvenient for a family.

What happened to Dawson's Hot Dogs? Wonder if they would sell their recipe for Coney sauce?

To the person that found and kept my notepad at Meijer on Illinois Road on March 29. What was it that made it so valuable to you that you had to steal it? I had lists on it that I needed.

Why do we taxpayers have to have to pay for “for-profit corporation schools” — just because Republicans in office don't like unions? Give the schools and children back to the teachers, and (get) government's nose out of education!

On April 4, a ranter wrote, “As long as the Republican ... keeps Sarah Palin yada, yada, yada.” If this is the way you feel, just don't vote!

Help! Is there any place in Fort Wayne that serves a real pizza? Just great pizza with no gimmicks. National chains don't know pizza. Just a mom-and-pop place that serves pizza like it is supposed to be. No stuffed crust, no garlic butter on the side. Not smothered in sauce or dipping sauces to mask the real taste. Help me find real pizza.

Tell me again what the Indiana law says concerning seriously tinted windows on vehicles?
