Rant & Rave - June 28, 2013

Live Oak — Bryant Thigpen did an excellent job covering the news of Assistant Principal Gary Caldwell demotion then lateral move to the High School. Hopefully he will attend the school board meeting Tues. June 25 to hear updates concerning this case.


Our four republican county Commissioners are spending more then Any four democrats have. Some times you have to say no!!! the county needs to slow down spending.Harris needs to live within Suwannee counties budget not Marian counties.


To who ever dumped 4 small 6 week old puppies at the trash site in the heat and bad weather should be arrested.Animal control will adopt them out .How hard was that next time give them away not dump them A**HOLES thats for the pups that didnt have a chance or a voice !!!!


Able-bodied teens should not stand in front of Winn Dixie asking for handouts for baseball travel. Coaches (or mentors or grandpas) shouldn't sit in lawn chairs relaxing while the teens panhandle. Take my groceries to my car. Wash my car. Mow my lawn. ANYTHING for a buck. But don't stand there with one hand out and one hand holding a cell phone on which you're texting and listening to music and ask for my hard-earned money. Parents, please teach your children that if you can't afford something, then they just can't participate. It won't kill them. It will build character.


I would like to know how come there are no programs for the homeless here in Suwannee County. All the churches here and all of you walk right past them like they are beneath you or don't exist? For whatever reason they have fallen on hard times and no church can open their doors for some AC relief, a cot, shower and a meal? Love thy neighbor unless you live in Live Oak. I only have a 2 bedroom apt that I don't think my landlord would appreciate all the traffic if I brought them here for a good nights sleep and a shower and a meal but I would. So why isn't there a place like that here? Who do I need to talk to get something like that started?

Do you think the city of Live Oak should have a city-manager form of government or leave it as a city-administrator form of government?

Change to a city-manager.
Keep it as city-administrator.
Don’t care either way.
