Rant and Rave for 4/13/12

MOULTRIE — Didn't apply

“No Colquitt County employee has applied for the Supt. Job. The man has not even arrived here yet so let's give him a chance."

Needs fixing

“Why does the city not fix the old rail road tracks on Roland Drive. Since the bridge has been out, traffic on this street has increased tenfold."

Enforce them

“I agree with the ranter about the loud music situation in Moultrie but I'll also add loud mufflers. It's become hard in the evening and at night to sleep peacefully. There are laws, why aren't they being enforced?"

I wonder

“I laughed when I read the rant about the flowery cleavage. I saw a girl the other day with ‘dulce’ tattooed across hers. That's Spanish for candy. I wonder how her kids will feel about that when they are old enough to read. Yes, stupidity runs rampant."

Burning trash

“I want to know if there is an ordinance against burning  yard waste within the city of Moultrie. This burning of yard waste is causing a lot of problems with my COPD. If there is not an ordinance then there should be one put in place right away. A lot of homeowners are too lazy to place their trash out so that the city can pick it up on trash days."

Commitment

“Recently it was reported that our county administrator was a finalist for the Tifton city manager position. I am very concerned and question a person's devotion to his current job as our county administrator when he is courting a job in a neighboring town. We need our community leaders to be committed and focused on leading our community not spending their time looking for other jobs.

"It is apparent if he is entertaining another position that he is not 100% focused on his current position. He has not been here that long so perhaps we need to consider if he is still the right man for the job of leading our county. See where his focus is. If it is here than let’s get to work, if not then let’s get someone in who is devoted and focused on our community."

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
