Hello this is Dennis. For all of you people who make less than $35,000 a year or less I say quit your jobs and get on President Obama gravy train line. Instead of working get your much needed rest and relax. A free monthly check, free housing, free health care, and free food. You can go to the beach or catch up on things around the house. You can even have free sex because the president provides free contraceptives and if you mess up, don't worry. They will pay for the delivery or the abortion. Why work week after week with nothing to show for it at the end of the month.

Wendell Hall, just because you won the other night it is no sign to let your deputies to run up and down the road at least 100 miles per hour. Five cars went up and down the road last night so fast you could barely tell they were police cars. Tell them to slow down. They could have killed anyone that would have gotten out on the road.

I have read a lot of stupid letters in the Press Gazette Speak Out, but the one from Dennis on Nov. 7 tops them all. I knew from yesterday's election we are a dumb state. I figured that out yesterday. But the letter from Dennis on Wednesday was down right terrible to misquote scripture. I doubt if I will write or read the Press Gazette again for printing it.



Editor's note: I understand your feelings, but Dennis exercised his right just like we allowed you to.

Hi my name is Dawn from Milton. I got a letter and was a victim of a fraudulent check today. The fraud was from an outside lender, Smart Financial Credit Union out of Houston, Texas. They are asking people to cash these checks and then send them some of the money back. These checks are fraudulent and I wanted to let people know not to cash these checks.



Wednesday, 4:21 p.m.



Ya'll have a poll about what Milton Needs more of. One of the choices should have been jobs.

This is George. That new bank in town has out of state license plates. All of us have to buy Florida tags, what about them?



Editor's note: George you have a given amount of time when you move to the area to change your plates, but it is a law not enforced when you look at all of the out of state plates in our county.

Mary, please call the humane society to come get the dogs to be put down humanely or find someone to take them to the pound. The ones dropping the dogs off, it will come back to them. Please call the humane society. Don't watch them starve to death.

Florida yet again looks a state of idiots when it comes to voting, due to reduction in voting days, huge lines and LONG waits to vote, plus the attempts to restrict and suppress voting. This is what democracy looks like when Republicans control access to the polls. Wake up, folks! Pete.

Yeah this is Raymond, want to have a Tea Party and doing so reach across the aisle and be a united people of an un-united county. Sweeten the deal with brown sugar or honey.

Hello thank you for letting me speak out. This is to the people in Milton, Pace, and the surrounding area. If they want to donate to the people who just lost their homes in New Jersey and New York. They can give in memories of their loved ones to the Red Cross for Sunday. By doing this the people there can have a hot meal for Thanksgiving or afterwards. Give to the Red Cross please.

The vote of county commissioners to discontinue public transportation at the end of December due to the $24,000 cost per year is crazy. Thanks to Commissioner Lynchard and Commissioner Salter who voted to continue the service. Riders reported using it for work transportation, to get to medical appointments, and for a few to go grocery shopping. Could the county have raised the rider fees or found a way to fund this for those riders who have not other option? Thank you.

Hi this is Veronica. I am not sure who edits your Speak Out messages, but somebody really took out of context the subject I was talking about. I applauded the officer that pulled a speeding car over. I am very disappointed in the officers who sat under a tree across the street for two days and did nothing. People have got to slow down on Dogwood Dr., especially you people going to Whiting Field.



Editor's note: We are sorry your message was printed in error. Some messages are hard to understand due to their volume or points were the messages just drop out and words are missed because of items like call waiting. Please accept my apologies.

Hey this is for the guy in Blackwater, Mr. (Billy) Rogers. Mr. Rogers, real sportsmen would want the coyotes to have something to eat too. All of wildlife needs something to eat. That is the way the deer management program works. Thank you very much.

We would just like to say thank you to area food banks and food distribution centers for those of us who need it. But one thing we would like to say is please quit dispensing kidney beans, that is all we get. The other day we got six cans of kidney beans. Unless you want to drop off a box of Gas-X
