Rant & Rave - January 3, 2014

Live Oak — Was wondering why the guys and gals that keep the streets cleaned, lights working, cemeteries kept up, trees trimmed, and garbage picked up in The City of Live Oak were not included in the bonus that all City Employees were given? They are City Employees right? They do awesome work, we see it everyday as we drive through our town. I thank them for all the hard work the really do! - Those employees are employees of OMI, the city’s contracted public works director. - Editor

****

Why would we want the dep't. of economic opprotunity sniffing around here? They get a whiff of what's really going on!

****

It is time to consolidate City and County functions. The City has obviously lost its mind.

****

Start living in the 21st Century son, yes I'm directing this at you Jake Grantham. Those influencing you are NOT the majority.

****

The City Council has lost its mind! The Sunday sales ordinance makes no sense, obstructs business operations (which they obviously have no understanding of retail service businesses - nor do they care), AND they are putting OUT of BUSINESS a very well respected, responsible bottle club that has contributed greatly to our community. SHAME ON YOU COUNCILMEN, SHAME ON YOU!

****

I read the Letter to the Editor from Lori McCraney. Am I the only one who thinks she has a lot better idea what is actually going on in the Commission meetings than the Commissioners themselves? You five guys could learn a lot from this lady. Maybe you should hire her for land regulation assistance since you turned down free state assistance?

****

My news years resolution "help get rid of two wainwright yes votes. Phil and Clyde its time to go!

****

I want to say a huge thank you to Suwannee County EMS and their workers. If it would have not been for your quick response and excellent skills my daughter received when she was injured last month. We had 2 ambulances respond within 5 minutes of getting the call. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts.

****

Want to avoid a next generation "good old boy" commission? Try a 2 term limit or 2 yr. terms, if they won't do it a referendum ballot will. Get rid of the crazy self awarded pension scheme. Know any body else gets a pension after 12 yrs. on a part time job at YOUR expense? Thinking that would be no! A sharper electorate would be the best way, but 25% turn out won't cut it. They can't pull this crap if voters won't allow it!
