Letters to the Editor

Lincoln Daily News welcomes letters of appreciation, information and opinion on matters pertaining to the community. 
Controversial issues:
As a community we need to be able to talk openly about matters that affect the quality of our lives. The most effective and least offensive manner to get your point across is to stick to the issue and refrain from commenting on another person's opinion. Letters that deviate from focusing on the issue may be rejected or edited and marked as such.

To the editor:

To all of you that think you are too busy or just too lazy to return your grocery cart to the store or cart corral, this goes out to you.

As I was in a store today for 20 minutes, someone just didn't have time to return their cart to the store, the wind caught the cart and put a very nasty dent in my car. After I got done with making a police report and was leaving the parking lot, two more cars got hit with grocery carts.

As we all know, these stores in Lincoln do not hire enough people to take care of customers in the store, much less worry about what goes on in the parking lots.
