BLUE HUDDLE: Something big must be going on at the police station on Bridge Street. There’s three cruisers in front and all the blinds are closed. I wonder if they’re taking a few tips from the State Police.

BALLOT FEVER: As a volunteer who worked the primary election on Sept. 4., the heat and humidity was a big factor on why the machines kept breaking down. The City Council was warned before but did nothing about it. They keep kicking things down the road. It’s time to get new machines.

Lowell

BAD TO WORSE: I think it will be a big mistake to fill in the Lord Overpass. Why don’t they just put in a pedestrian bridge? The traffic is bad enough and it’s going to be worse if they put bike lanes in and take away the overpass.

IT’S ABOUT TIME: Here’s a major announcement: Lowell police are now going to put more officers downtown to improve public safety. It took a brawl to get them to act, when this lawlessness has been happening nearly every day with panhandlers and addicts scaring the daylights out of people.

ANNOYED: I live up in the Acre, near the Bartlett School, and they were supposed to spray for mosquitoes. Did they? I can’t even sit on my porch it’s so bad.

DESIGN DISASTER: I don’t know how any engineer can say taking all the cars down below and all the cars from above is going to help traffic at the Lord Overpass. The engineer says in The Sun it won’t make things any worse. So why spend the money if it’s not going to get better? Isn’t that supposed to be the point? Fire the engineer. This is a disaster waiting to be built.

Lowell

STOP ORDER: All the hurricanes coming across the Atlantic and into the Gulf of Mexico is because of climate change and the warmer water. Trump is ignoring what is happening. He should be doing something about it.
