level for housing

Re: “Fashionable housing narrative upended by planning professional” (Web page A12, Aug. 27).

In her oped Lafayette Metropolis Councilwoman Susan Candell, challenges the state legislation, SB 9, on the problem of truthful housing.

I’ve been a resident of Lafayette since 1969 and have at all times regretted that our neighborhood has lacked each range and fairness in housing.

SB 94 is incorrect
monitor on crime

The individuals sentenced to life with out parole will not be the victims individuals are making them out to be. Among the related crimes was once capital crimes: first-degree homicide and felony homicide. Others are significantly merciless: sexual penetration with torture, lewd or lascivious acts through the fee of a housebreaking, and spousal rape with the infliction of nice bodily damage.

No person who has taken the lifetime of one other deserves a chance to stroll free, a chance they’ve taken away from their victims.

Folks don’t kill, or commit acts of nice cruelty, as a result of they’ve been denied alternatives. They do it for energy over different individuals. It’s not simply an “oopsie.”

Folks whining about life with out parole promised us it was a humane different to capital punishment. Now they wish to dumb down the removing of predators from our midst as soon as once more with SB 94. Simply say no.

The affiliate subtracted 3.49 from 3.99 on her mobile phone which learn 0.5. She gave me a nickel. I protested, however she insisted the distinction was 5 cents.

I worry for this 20-something and our future world. How can she aspire to a better-paying profession, and even as a mom dealing with family bills?
