Animal hospital gives notice of parking changes

To our clients and neighbors:

We want to make you aware of changes in our parking lot traffic pattern. For years, motorists have used the adjacent space between our rear Plank Road entrance/exit and the Wash-O-Rama car wash next door as a pass-through to avoid a traffic light. The ownership of Wash-O-Rama, with justification, has decided that this is an unsafe condition for their customers and employees, and has closed the common border between our properties, thereby shutting off through-traffic.

For obvious safety reasons, Eastside Animal Hospital’s team members, clients, and pets can ill afford a new pass-through traffic pattern going right past our front door, which would include driving the wrong way on a one-way passage. We have therefore temporarily closed our back entrance until we can put appropriate signage and speed bumps in place to discourage future through-traffic activity.

For now, the best way to visit us is via our front 10th Street entrance, and we look forward to seeing you.

— David Strong, business manager, Eastside Animal Hospital, Jeffersonville

It’s time to start over with our government

Our Congress is now facing a fiscal cliff. They also have made a pledge to Grover Norquist not to raise taxes. This is the same as a bribe of our officials. The same is true of lobbyists, which makes them rich, and sways how they vote.

You congressmen and women take an oath of office to do the work of the people — not just the 1 percent. Maybe you forget if the government fails the people, the people have the inalienable right to abolish this government and institute a new one. I think it is time for that to happen.

We The People need to set term limits, set their salaries, do away with that fat pension they receive for not doing our will. Have them pay into Social Security. Make their health care Medicare as the rest of us have.

It is time to throw them all out and start fresh. The new Constitution needs an oath that which includes all of these measures. That way, they will be more inclined to do the will of all the people.

— George L. Dorman, Clarksville
