Stoney Creek's King Street set for $6.5-million facelift in 2015 "Hope they will put in bicycle lanes from Centenial to Gray's road with turning lane in centre where there's space. Right now from Gray's to Applewood the sidewalk is right next to a lane of traffic where the speeds are usually in excess of 60 kph. A"

LETTER: Deja vu feeling about LRT "One can also remember the Electric Trolley BUS that ran in Hamilton but the City Fathers at that time did not want electric wires above the streets. This system worked great. They could get around accidents and even make detours with the help of a to"

LETTER: Deja vu feeling about LRT "The LRT will operate with the traffic signals using transit priority pre-emption. Resident's of Hamilton should research how other municipalities in Southern Ontario are implementing the design and operation of the LRT prior to making false statement"

Class and conviction is what winning is all about
I have to applaud the combined efforts of Highland/Parkside high school’s senior girls waterpolo team for winning a bronze medal.
Vandalism knows no age limit
During last Sunday’s lovely morning, my wife and I were disheartened to see, in broad daylight, an act of vandalism.
Praise, not scorn, frugality
Reporter Kevin Warner compared councillor Scott Duval’s expense account of almost $11,000 with “stingy” Judi Partridge’s negligible claim of $30.
LETTER: Irony of new board HQ not lost during closures
re: School closures, funding

re: Don’t hate me because I’m a young, male driver (Community Columnist, April 3)
Rethink education spending
The writer correctly states school closures are occurring because the current Ontario education funding formula has passed its before date. School boards are the victims of that formula, not its advocates.
HCA advisory board didn’t make dedicated effort to elicit opinion
In this article, Chris Firth-England, CAO of Hamilton Conservation Authority, states there have been open houses, and the public consultation process offered plenty of chances to comment, including at an open house, an advisory board meeting dedicated to the proposal and through the authority’s website.
Thank you for wonderful gift
A wonderful gift was given to me about a month ago.
No scientific or ethical justification for spring bear hunt

LETTER: Disappointed in all political parties

Money better spent on road repairs
I thought the March 20 editorial was spot on the mark. As a veteran from the 1940s I have a fairly low pension and with the price of every thing continually going up it becomes harder and harder to make ends meet. We cannot afford to invest in the LRT. We have some of the worst roads in Canada and they need to be fixed and fixed properly the first time. I’m sure most people would rather see the money spent on the roads and better bus service. If you stay out later than 9 p.m. you could have trouble finding a bus.

Privacy is not worth 25 per cent insurance rate reduction
By now, you may have seen or heard one of the car insurance advertisements claiming to reduce your rates by up to 25 per cent.
Nature not a ledger but spring bear hunt isn’t the answer
Sustainable populations of black bears do not mean static. An equal birth/death ratio is impossible, and nature is not a ledger, but has fluctuations that are natural.
