Here are some of the issues that area residents are discussing. The statements were phoned in anonymously, so the Courier does not vouch for their veracity, nor do we know what motivated the callers:
How can a person hold down two positions in the Liberty County School System — one as a bus driver and one as a paraprofessional? There are many people out there looking for jobs, and it is very unfair, I think, for one person to hold down two jobs when another person can’t get a job at all.
For the individual calling in concerning leaving food out for stray cats: Opossums are immune to rabies for some reason, however, raccoons are very prone to rabies. So rabies could be from those stray cats that aren’t inoculated and also from stray dogs.
To the person who called about feeding stray cats: How about going after pet owners who tire of their pets can then dump them, instead of taking them to the humane society? They are the ones you should go after.
Shame on you if you dropped a brown dog off at the Clyde’s market in Midway. He’s been waiting on you to come back and pick him up for the last two weeks. It’s a wonder he hasn’t been run over. I wish someone would just give him a good home.
This is for the person that wrote in about the eighth-grader getting to play ball before the ninth-graders get to: The coach goes off ability and strength, and maybe the eighth-grader is a better player than the ninth-grader is.
I think it is unfair for a parent to think a high school coach should teach your child basic basketball skills. If an eighth-grader has his basketball skills over a ninth-grader, who do you think the coach is going to play?
