I am calling about the man who called in on Oct. 24 Speak Out line who complained about spending $300 on shocks for his car. His last line was 'Jesus Christ what a mess.' I am disappointed and angry that you printed this comment of him taking the name of my Lord and savior in vain. You should have deleted his comment. My God I hope it won't happen again in Speak Out. Thank you.
Editor's note: We are sorry and didn't mean to allow for this to happen.

This is Billy Rogers in Blackwater. I would like to invite all the real sportsmen that kick sticking their heads over onto my property and food plot to go hunt your own plot. I can't hunt on or around my property and I have been living here for 18 years. This is as inconsiderate as all get out. By the way, you real sportsmen have cripple three doe deer that will probably die from infection from your arrows and their orphans will be left for the coyotes. I hope you all very happy with yourselves. You are not sportsmen at all.

Hi, I am calling about all the unethical reports that have been in the news lately about the Sheriff and the Sheriff's office. I am really surprised with all they have been doing to people. I wonder how they got away with it. Is anyone holding them accountable for what they have been doing to the citizens?

Hi my name is Christy. The reason I call is to offer a suggestion. I enjoy your paper very much and I am fairly new to the area. I thought it might be a good idea to run a good neighbors column. I am originally from Birmingham and I thought this would be a good way for people to get together for things from geneology to gardening and everything in between. They could ask a question about something or to share something for free. I think this could promote community in the area. Bye.

Hi this is Judy. People don't rely on Hollywood and the new media when deciding your selection for President. Do your research and pray for what is best for American and your grandchildren.

Yeah this is Gene in Pace. I just watched the video Dream from my Real Father with Barack Obama. He claims his real father is Frank Marshall Davis, a well-known Communist in Chicago in the 1960's and 1970's. And Obama wants to take us the say way his father believed. Find the book or watch the video. Please do so before Nov. 6 or before you go to vote.

This is Charles and reading the Speak Out comment from the guy with the Department of Transportation. He might see things a little differently if he had to drive through this mess everyday. It they were working on his driveway I bet he wouldn't let them go to another job.



Tuesday, 1:09 p.m.
I read today that too many people do not remember November of 1982 and the 241 Marines in Beirut who were killed in that attack on the Marine barracks. Things were going on back then like they are going on now. I just pray that President Obama or Mitt Romney don't send troops over to be betrayed. Only the parents and the close friends of those Marines remember that day. Have a good day and welcome the troops home with food, housing, and support. Thank you this is Maria.

Mike here. Mrs. Obama said she would vote for her husband. Who else would she vote for. Bill Clinton? Bill Clinton is out campaigning for Obama because he want Hillary to keep her job. I would vote for Obama too if I had a job, plane, servants in the White House and paid for vacations. I could take four more years too.

This is in response to the Department of Transportation in reference to the service road. What they said is nothing but a bald face lie. They have lied to you and all of us. I travel that road every day and they had packed up weeks before the hurricane came. They have lied to us again.



Tuesday, 6:48 a.m.
This is Jim calling in response to the service road problem. If the project manager allows they to go do something else would he allow it if it was his driveway they were paving. I think not.



Tuesday, 6:44 a.m.
This is Chris. I read the statement by the DOT about them being pulled off the job due to Hurricane Isaac. They are a pretty large company. if the state is allowing this to happen they need to look at their policy. This is ridiculous for the people who live in the neighborhood.



Tuesday, 6:39 a.m.
Yes I have been monitoring the comments on the drop off by Nichols Seafood involving the construction on the service road. I too live in that area and my car gets beat to death everyday. I read the comments and the DOT engineer stated they were pulled off to do another job because of Isaac is not acceptable. That is a lame excuse by the DOT engineer. Is he the one to blame for all of this mess.

Hello this is Chet. I watched the last of the presidential debates. I am a life-long Republican and I am so glad we have such an intelligent man like Mitt Romney running for president. He blew Reagan, both terms, as well as Bush I and II out of the water. Finally an intelligent man running for president. When he get elected I hope that he won't be forced to toe the party line with trickle down economics and not policing the SEC. I am so happy he is not worried about social issued as he is economics.
