Simple solutions

Sometimes it seems that solutions are so easy and yet leaders can’t come up with any. Example: Why are people on welfare not required to do volunteer work of some kind? It seems that a lot of these people have no self-worth because they don’t have any obligations. Let’s get them up and out in the world.

Why doesn’t the city of Pittsburgh put half of its road crew on the night shift during the winter? This would save a bundle in overtime pay. 

Why don’t school districts have their own day care facilities? This is a multibillion-dollar industry. When the schools are on a two-hour delay or closing because of weather, most of the parents are driving them to the day care anyway. If the schools had their own facilities, then the kids would already be there. Maybe this could help with tax relief.

Why do people who rent and have children in our schools not pay a fee? Then we could give senior citizens a break. Just a thought!
