Rant & Rave - Aug. 23, 2013

Live Oak — just one small item. Thank you Mr. Bashaw for all the hours you have put out on the job and talking with the employees and finding out just what they do need to do that job for the PEOPLE not for just yourself. We have no place for greed or self appointed agenda's to shut Suwannee County off from the World.


‘THANK YOU’ to our Commissioner Jason Bashaw. 
I needed help and he immediately took action to help me fix the problem.
Suwannee County is fortunate to have him on the Board of County Commissioners. Please keep up the great work that you do for us and for making Suwannee County a great place to live and work.


The restored store fronts on Howard Street and sections of Ohio St. look great. Live Oak leaders I'm proud of the progress you're making downtown. The 2 buildings demolished are a blessing in disguise. The space offers a new list of possibilities.


The first day of school and my 10th grader was not issued ANY text books.  I was told there was no class work and no homework.  Sounds like a GREAT start of a new year.  :(
It makes one wonder whether or not all classes in all Suwannee County schools operate similarly.


The wife and I have been out west on vacation for a couple of weeks. Absolutely enjoying ourselves and the folks out here are friendly and happy. Just went to the democrat online. Ended up on the rant and rave page. I'm extending my trip for another week.


The property assessments have dropped yr after yr -- slaughtering our property values -- now they want to raise the mileage because of lost tax dollars which is due to them lowering the assessments ------CROOKED !!! I hope everyone stands up and fights it -- why should we have our tax rate raised and values at almost half what they were
