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:
Guess what? I’ve detected an interruption in my cable TV service. They do not offer any special needs to handicapped or senior citizens. Goodbye, Comcast.
Where can I get some of those empanadas that they had at the Small World Festival? I sure would hate to wait a whole year to get one. Where can I order some of those? Any of you vendors who sell them, do you sell them from your house or something?
The Azalea Street project is a rip-off. Citizens are paying money for the property taxes and the maintenance conducted by the city or OMI workers. This was a bad decision. Someone high in the city government wanted to turn a profit for themselves and not for the benefit of the citizens or the community.
The editor at the Coastal Courier must be a religious freak. Every Sound off I read in the paper has God in it. I’m sick of hearing about it. I’m sick of hearing about the lemonade stand, too. Why don’t you print something that’s worth it to the community? Can I get an amen on that?
This is for the two people who wrote about having expensive cars and houses. Get over it. If you have the money, enjoy life and buy the things you want. I started out with a cheap car and after 20 years in the Army, I can afford a nicer car and a nicer house. Enjoy life and spend money on things you want.
I’m almost 64 years old and I don’t have or need or want a cell phone. Could somebody please explain why a 5-year-old child whose parents are on welfare should be issued a free cell phone?
