    Q: I just picked up a new dog. I need to get him fixed but I don’t know where to go and I can’t afford the super expensive procedures. Do you have any recommendations?

    Q: What is a speed hump? I read about it in (Wednesday’s) paper and don’t understand why we can’t just call it a speed bump?

    Q: I’ve been told that Ray Charles once appeared as part of Lufkin’s Community Concerts series way back when. Anyone remember? I’ve lived here all my life, and it’s news to me.

    Q. What exactly is a streetscape? I know they are planning to put one in on Frank, but what will it look like and how will it affect my morning commute?

    Q. I saw Commissioner (Bobby) Cheshire (Pct. 4) drive off the lot with a new GMC Denali that has a sunroof that he used county money to purchase. They had to take the insignia off it. How is this OK?

    Q: Why doesn’t Lufkin ISD buy its vehicles locally? There are plenty of good dealers in Angelina County. These dealers pay taxes in Angelina County and support all area schools. I’m not aware of Tipton paying ad valorem taxes in Angelina County or supporting our schools.

    Q. I see all these candidates announcing their run for whatever political position, but I didn’t think you could file for election yet. When does that period open?
