You Said It, March 6, 2011

Bobby Willis gets info from Country Jam, decides not to buy, and then puts on his own “free” show, with another one later (competing with Rock Jam?). Bet when Country Jam can’t make it, he’ll have everything in line to take over, and the price won’t be “free” after that. Bobby reminds me a little of Rob Dixon.

I couldn’t believe it, people actually attending a town meeting to support paying exorbitant prices at Country Jam rather than seeing what Bobby’s Bash has to offer.

To Betty, an angel, who insisted she pay for all my merchandise that I purchased at the Walgreens store off 32 Road. Thank you so much. It was very much appreciated by this 87-year-old lady. I plan to return the favor to someone soon.

From a cashier at Sam’s Club to food stamp users: You are able to get better food than my family can purchase here. I did not know you were able to purchase prime ribs, real nice steaks, crab legs and lobster tails, let alone all the candy and soda purchased on food stamps. My family cannot even afford to purchase hamburger. And you all get that with your brand new cars. I think the government should put a halt on what can be purchased.

I am tired of money for schools. Now it is time to have a state school tax and everyone pays through the state income taxes filed each year. Do away with school tax on properties. Then let’s get rid of assistant principals, nurses and counselors. Then the schools would have no problem in finances.

Once again the city has blown the chance to reduce the size of government and your tax burden. Now we need to build even bigger fire stations to house more employees and more trucks. All at the taxpayers’ expense. I can’t vote on the privatization of ambulance service, but I sure can vote no on the next bond issue.

Somebody want to tell Josh Penry that lacrosse is more “American” than he is? A bureaucrat you are, a humorist you’re not. Native American says, “white guy not funny.”

I travel Highway 340 every morning on my way to work. It’s usually still pretty dark. There’s a house along there that still has its Christmas lights on the trees. I want to say thanks. It brightens the start to my day and makes me smile.

Gary McCallister is one of the best science writers in the business. Kudos to the Sentinel for hanging on to him when columnists are dropping like flies.

Thanks to the lady who gave a gift card to two ladies to be used for our dinners at the Outback restaurant. We did not get to acknowledge her, but it was very much appreciated.

I cannot believe the Downtown Development Association spent $16,000 on those silly, cartoon/fairy-tale like signs in this economic depression. The money would have been better spent helping out that poor store owner on Main that had his store flooded by the faulty water pipe break.

I would like to thank the elderly gentleman who walks with a garbage can down E Road picking up trash. It’s wonderful to drive down a street that is so well taken care of.
