MOULTRIE — Our complaints
“County employees have every right to complain about their insurance. It's high and it doesn't cover much of anything. Yes, we still have co-pay at doctor and a very high deductible that you never meet. So we have every right to complain. Also no raise in almost 6 years. The average county employee makes about 18,000 a year after taxes. Don't you think it's hard to support a family on that?"
“ I really don't understand how Brice Ramsey made the first team and Cole Seagraves made the second team! Cole is ranked number 14th in the state and Brice is ranked number 37th! I cannot believe the bias of this game in Georgia! The Packers are the only team left from the south in the playoffs and I noticed most of the starters for the all-region team are from Camden, Lowndes and Valdosta......WHAT!"
A bit racist?
“Regarding a rant from Wednesday’s paper about percentages of race in the classroom: That person needed to have stopped and watched the kids going in at schools before he/she ranted! Depending which school, the principal determines the class rosters and many don't have an easy decision to make about how many whited, blacks, Hispanics, etc. to put in each class. Some of our county schools are now predominately Hispanic, not white. That rant sounded a little on the racist side."
“In response to a rant regarding lack of outside Christmas decorations in yards of families with young children...I am sure the ranter neglected to think about what time working parents may have to devote to decorating. It is hard enough to get around to doing all we need to do on a limited time frame as it is, much less decorating yards at Christmas time! I am doing good to get a Christmas tree up as it is!!"
“Young men are traveling from as far away as Pompano Beach to rob and pilfer, and doing it in broad daylight with no fear. Alert neighbors and competent law enforcement are about the only hope we have with this one."
“I think the biggest problem we have with our welfare system is that there is little if any accountability. I know of several people who have food stamp cards who also abuse drugs.
"Now maybe you don’t have any idea what these illicit drugs cost, but a user can go through a hundred bucks very easily in one night."
Not a waste
“The gifted meeting was not a "waste of time". We were told from the get-go that it was a preliminary meeting and that there would be future meetings to discuss things as they progressed. Those of us who showed up on time and listened, instead of talking during the presentation, had no trouble getting answers."
