    Magnificent sight
    The vision of the great blue heron is truly a magnificent sight, whether they are on the riverbank, in the river or in the air. We often see them in Fries. But, thanks to the striking pictures so up close and personal in The Gazette by [nature columnist] Bill Dunson, I have a whole new insight and appreciation for this bird. Thank you for devoting space for this in our newspaper.

    Needs permit
    Why does one certain person at the Grayson County School Board office park in the handicapped parking space? Isn’t it illegal to park in a handicapped space if you do not possess a handicapped tag or a sign?

    No exceptions
    Recently I tried to park near the Grayson County School Board office and noticed that [a staff member’s] vehicle was occupying the handicapped space at the office. I do not believe the person is handicapped in any way and therefore found it inconsiderate and an insult to all handicapped persons wishing to park where they have a designated parking space. Perhaps the person should be reminded of the rules and that they apply to everyone.

    Undesirable job

    Not a big deal
    I just read the Hotline comment about going through the bank drive-thru and waiting for an ink pen to use. I myself have gone through the drive-thru and accidentally taken the ink pen. So, how many ink pens would a bank go through each day if each person that went through that drive-thru took an ink pen? Needless to say, this is pitiful if you have got to complain about waiting on an ink pen.

    Being watched
    It’s a shame that when you go through a bank drive-thru and you need to use the pen that is in the box and they sit and wait for you to drop it back in there. They must be awful poor if they can’t afford a pen.

    Fast route
    You would think Meadowlark Road was the interstate, as fast as some people hurry down here to check a light pole. At least the cars on the side of the road slowed down the speeding busybodies who have no business down here in the first place.

    Bad odds

    Wandering around
    The experience I had at [a convenience store] was horrible. There were non-employees cleaning the establishment and coming out of the back with other employees at the same time. There have been many times when guys have been loitering in the store in the morning hours. I can’t believe the establishment would allow this.
