Rant & Rave - Sept. 21, 2012

Live Oak — How come it’s alright for the mayor to go home at noon everyday and not come back to work and we’re the taxpayers are paying him for full day. I called there and the secretary said he don’t work but half days.

Editor’s note: According to City Hall, there is no mention in the Charter or Ordinance how much time the mayor must contribute to his office. The mayor’s current salary, by the way, is $17,409.60 per year.

Please donate your used DVD's (movies) to the local library.  I've seen all they currently have!  And, yes, I know I need to get a life.

Will somebody in the City of Live Oak please address the citizens that insist on placing their garbage beside the road all week long stacked beside their garbage can? We have been blessed with a nice town but we need a little help with a few people. It is amazing what a rotten apple can do. Please city representatives help us with this problem it is not hard to move your garbage cans during the week so everybody does not have to see how disgusting you are especially in the city limits or subdivisions.

All along the BOCC sat down to a backroom high stake poker game. The pot was put up by taxpayers, not just local, the whole dang country. If'n they lose ain't no skin off their backside. Klausner can't lose, they just pack up the table & move on. The bankers, lawyers & real estate sharks already took their cut. Working folks here will have a lot of overpriced farmland, such a deal. This is why the BOCC shouldn't be involved with real estate speculation at all, win lose or draw.

DUH, it's about "our yard" not some place else, so you missed the point. The ag based economy & lack of enforcement locally is drawing immigrants of dubious status here while others are leaving. The burden placed on legal, educational & social services increases on perm. residents & prop. owners for people we don't have any idea who they are. No arguement that working aliens, legal or otherwise ,are preferable to meth heads. The meth culture is most prevelant in poor rural southern areas that lack job & educ. opprotunities. Most folks are tired of paying for either group & we need to clean up our political yard to improve this.
