HAVE YOUR SAY: Cyclists should respect traffic signs

This is to the lady bike rider who a week ago was coming down the hill on Hawkins Road from Goose Spit to Torrence Road at 40 to 50 km/h.

This is to the lady bike rider who a week ago was coming down the hill on Hawkins Road from Goose Spit to Torrence Road at 40 to 50 km/h and made no attempt to stop at the sign or even slow down. My wife and I would like to advise you that you have used up several of your nine lives. You are very lucky that I made a full stop and a slow takeoff as you roared past a few feet from the front of our car as we turned left from Torrence. If I had moved out a little faster you would have hit our car and been spread down the road 500 feet and very seriously injured or dead. Bike people are often asking for more lanes, more respect, etc. How about you respecting traffic signs! It may save your life! I hope you were shaken by your near miss; I know these two old people were.

Many beautiful flowers for Dr. M. Spring and her staff at the CV medical “drop in” clinic. Your quick, correct diagnosis, treatment and follow-up has made my life so much easier. The entire efficient experience is a plus to our health care system.

Big bunch of flowers to Roxannes in Comox. I purchased some clothing a few days ago, not knowing any difference in prices. A couple of days went by and I returned for different items. I was told they were glad I was there because they felt so bad about charging me 40 per cent more than the cost was. I would have never known anything different. What a nice surprise. It pays to shop local. A loyal customer. Cheers.

The City of Courtenay watering a hardly used park at 4:30 a.m. on a Friday morning is not only disturbing one’s sleep. Isn’t it going against what all the residents are not doing during this very hot spell of weather we are having.
