Fire, cat killer, costumes, more


— — On a video of a father who created a Disney Park Halloween costume:

• ... I personally think this is amazing that a father would take the time to create something with their child such as this. Halloween costumes are getting more and more creative and I for one can appreciate someone else’s creativity — Tonya J.

• That’s cool ... fun ‘n’ creative! — Dave H.

On a poll question asking whether you have attempted to browse the new online marketplaces offered by Obamacare:

• It’s insane how much people are saving with the new marketplace exchanges. People should get over the hate hype and actually look at the exchanges. It’s saving people thousands of dollars a year to get the same or better coverage. Now it’s clear for everyone to see why insurance companies oppose the Affordable Care Act — Joe H.

• So all those horror stories are lies — Steven T.

• Nope and I don’t plant to — Jerry W.

On a story about the resignation of Michelle Carter from the United Way of the Virginias:

• I hope the media looks into what happened. It is quite serious and has a huge impact on this area. Was I right in reading that the correct paperwork hadn’t been filed since 2008? — Bill S.

On a question asking if you have seen coyotes or other nuisance animals in the region:

• They are thick here in Lerona. We see them all the time — Madison O.

• About a month ago here in Princeton, a deer come running down 5th Street and right into my yard and crossed the woods onto Washington Street. A couple minutes later a coyote passed by running down the street — Chad E.

• Deer have done thousands of dollars in damage for me for the past three years by destroying marketable nursery stock and by causing damage to two vehicles — Gene B.

On a poll question asking your forecast for the upcoming winter weather:

• I think it’s gonna be a long, extremely cold winter! With snow starting soon! — Michele C.

• I sure hope it’s a mild one! — Betty B.
