Yeah, this is Bobby. I was just looking in (another newspaper) today. It looks like the powers that be are determined to tell people what they can and can't do with their own property. I don't know what makes them think they know best.
They live in a fishing and boating, RV community, yet they don't want to park where they can see it. I don't know why it would be somebody's business to tell you what kind of ground cover you've got to have to park a boat on.
They said they could make exceptions to keep from cutting down trees. Well if you can make exceptions, then it should be okay. One person got an exception so he could park in the front yard. The other people don't have exceptions, so it's so terrible, they've got to get rid of theirs.
People ought to leave other people alone. Or either move up north somewhere away from the water. Thank you.

Yeah, this is Bobby. I just wanted to say a few words about what's happening to Paula Deen for using the n-word 20-30 years ago. I grew up in the south, in Milton, my whole life.
When I was growing up, it was a common word. And didn't mean anything terrible. It meant the same as negro, black, Afro American or African American. It just meant that the person is black. It didn't mean that he was a bad person.
And that's what people don't understand. Especially people up north. It does not mean anything bad. It's just denoting that they're black. So, I don't see why it's such a bad word but we don't say it now because black people don't want to hear it, which is fine.
But they shouldn't crucify somebody that used it, when they didn't mean anything derogatory by it.

Yeah, this is Bobby. After reading the Wednesday paper. I'm going kind of get this straight. The county bought the Whittle building for almost $100,000, because it's close to the courthouse to store records in.
They been saying they have been so short of money, they wanted to make the little kids in little league pay the light bills at the parks. But now, all of a sudden, they got enough money that they going to lease that building out for $10 a year, which will be no property taxes, instead of selling it.
And they're going build a new building somewhere, when they don't know where the new courthouse will be. So, depending on where it is, I guess they'll have to build another one close to the courthouse when they get it built. Makes no sense to me.

Yes, this is David in Pace. I see a lot of comments in here that a person named Maria in Milton leaves. And I would really like to know what year she escaped from Chattahoochee. Because I think that's where she used to live at. Thank you very much.

I'd like to thank Mr. Jerry Couey for looking out for our best interests. Indeed, the county does need to be consistent with its policies and use a request for proposal for consultants. Furthermore, I think a 25-year lease is absolutely too long. Thank you for now and bye.
