    Rave for the employee at Sonic on Bemiss Road who helped me replace the dead battery in my car Sunday afternoon. He was a big help and kept me from being stranded.

    Who doesn’t try to contact a government business? I called the Medicaid department the other day. First three times, the recording said high volume call back later. Finally was placed on hold the fourth time. Sat on hold for 45 minutes. Then the same recording said to call back later; wasted 45 cell-phone minutes. Called back a fifth time and placed on hold for 30 minutes. Told again to call back later and was hung up on. I don't have a problem being asked to call back when call volume is less but after 45 minutes of holding!

    A friend of mine was looking for a place to have breakfast this past Saturday morning and we had the most wonderful pancakes, sausage and ham at The Church Street Coffee House  in Hahira. I understand they have an awesome hamburger. If you want a treat, have breakfast there this weekend.

    I don’t know what in the world happened to the beautiful right of ways in the City of Lake Park, I used to ride home everyday and notice how neat they were. Well, not any more! They look very bad now. Please make our city beautiful again.

    Get your facts correct. The UK does not require a lie detector test to qualify for welfare. Lie detectors were trialed by former Work and Pensions Secretary John Hutton four years ago with 24 councils across Britain. Then, two years ago, the government abandoned the detector tests after the trials suggested they were unreliable.

    Fire Department and emergency rescue budgets everywhere are getting a little out of hand. If you look at the number of structures that burn down, and compare it to the Fire Department budget; it would be cheaper to just pay to rebuild those couple of houses, and insurance pays for that anyway.

    The Williams Street project was not about beautification at all. It had one purpose only: preventing curbside parking.
