Rant & Rave - Jan. 27, 2012

Live Oak — Just want to let y'all know that the Suwannee Chamber of Commerce isn't promoting Suwannee County or it's members. I'm in the process of relocating our family farm to Suwannee and will be dumping a bunch of money into the local conomy by hiring a surveyor, land clearer,fence guy,etc. I've called the chamber twice now and spoke to a very uninterested women and have yet to receive one shred of info. I don't think I'LL join.


I wonder if Senate Bill 98, sponsored by state Senator Gary Siplin (D-Orlando) and which is being carried in the House by state Representative Charles Van Zant, (R-Keystone Heights), once enacted into law, will be popular when the student-led prayers are segregated by sex, the males bow to the east (Mecca) and are praying to Allah!  Allah Akbar!


As a parent of a high school student at Suwannee High school could someone please tell me why there was not a mid term schedule by subject on designated days and if there was a schedule why the teachers did not abide by it. This would have prevented students from having 3 or more tests on one day and no tests on other days. And we wonder why our students are not successful.


I have a few "Rants" and I will send those in later but I want to start with a big "Rave" to the citizens of Suwannee County for "keeping it together" in the last couple of months. First, despite there being Holiday signs in public places with no mention of Christ, THE WORLD DID NOT END! Way to go! Second, we were led to believe by some that the repeal of the liqour laws would immediately lead to prostitutes on every corner and people urinating in the streets and it hasn't happened! Keep up the good work Suwannee!
