Your Turn: Your Feedback On Cell Phones, Mr. Food & Black Friday


At Lyme Central School, it's no longer against the rules for students to use their cell phones. Most of your messages are about that:


This shows you who is in charge. We couldn't make them stop using their phone in school so we will just change the policy to accommodate the students.

That's the dumbest idea I have ever heard. They don't need more distractions in school, they need to pay attention to the school work.

I approve. Yes, there should be rules and limits. Now perhaps their phones won't be a distraction.

When kids pass notes, we didn't ban pencils and paper. We taught them proper use and respect. This is no different.

It's up to parents to teach their children responsibility, not the school.

Art Ginsburg, better known as the TV chef Mr. Food, died last week at the age of 81 after a battle with cancer:

May he rest in peace and become one of the chefs in heaven.

There were long lines at local stores on Thanksgiving and Black Friday as the holiday shopping frenzy got underway:


My wife and I look forward to Black Friday shopping to make our dollar go a little farther.

Sorry, but my dignity is worth more than a cheap TV for half-off.

I got everything that I wanted online for the same price with free shipping.
