BYH to Greenville for starting to remove speed humps downtown. Students are far more distracted than they were a few years ago and can't seem to walk without staring at a phone screen, and drivers are too busy texting to pay any more attention, so why remove the speed humps on Cotanche? We should be adding more to slow down the speeders, not removing them, BYH.

Bless your heart to the BYH submitter talking about the abysmal cycles on the traffic lights. Now due to that post they will be aware of the problem and hire an out-of-state consultant to work on the problem.

Bless the heart of John Adams, who said “Government is instituted for the common good: for the protection, safety, prosperity and happiness of the people; and not for the profit, honor or private interest of one man, family, or class of men.”

Student housing near the college comes with the most precious gift of all: a parking space (even though you might have to pay extra, of course). Walking to class sure beats riding the bus. My student is in a new complex that requires a key to get into the building and that makes me feel better about safety.

BYH to the children and adults in that cult house that was written up in The Reflector on Dec. 17. Thank goodness that one young man got out, but what about the others? This is just beyond my worst nightmare that children are subject to this cruel behavior. It is called World of Faith Fellowship in Rutherford County. They need help now. 

BYH to the new money-making red light cameras in Greenville. The citizens understand exactly why the yellow lights have been shortened only at these special intersections.

Bless your heart to good friends who support healthy habits and positive thinking. Thanks for your encouragement in 2017! What a difference our friends make.

BYH drivers in Greenville: please drive with courtesy.

Bless his heart, Teddy Roosevelt would have been thoroughly disgusted with Trump for selling off millions of acres of pristine national monument land: “Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders. Do not let selfish men and greedy interests skin this country of its beauty, its riches or its romance.”

Bless your heart to the yellow jacket staff working the ECU basketball game. We had never been to any type of ECU game and three different people went out of their way to be helpful and they all had a smile on their face. Makes me want to go back to another game.

What? Pay for a tax cut? Congress, This is our money, not yours. When we earn less we spend less. You need to follow our lead. You get less tax money, you need to spend less a lot less.

Bless my heart, I'm a non-practicing vegan.
