Q: On a scale of 1 to 10, I am not sure that this amounts to a minus-3, but I confess it is vexing to me. I am a retired USAF Colonel and recently I had occasion to refinance my home in Florida. Thereafter, I began receiving almost daily solicitations to “refinance” my mortgage that I had just refinanced with USAA. The mail solicitations used every attempt imaginable to give the appearance of U.S. government (if not VA) connection before burying the disclaimer that they were not affiliated with any government agency on a back page of their fliers.

Q: Recently, the West Gate has been backed up. Only two lanes have been open and the construction cones have been out choking the lanes down to the opposite two lanes that are open at the gate. This is a dangerous situation and an accident is very likely. My suggestion for a fix would be to ask the gate guards to open all three lanes before it is a necessity and to also ask that the construction crews to move the cones at the end of their work day. Thank you for your time.

Q: The entrance to the Hill AFB Exchange is a safety hazard. Exiting the Exchange is OK, but entry to the Exchange is mainly through the gas station. The Exchange should have another entrance on E Avenue right after the gas station without going through the back of the gas station. My suggestion is to remove the center area just after the gas station to allow the Exchange customers and pharmacy customers a safe way to get to the Exchange.
