Sound off for Aug. 25

“On the front page of Wednesday’s (Aug. 15) edition of your fish wrap, I read the article of Long County teachers being chosen Teachers of the Year. Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t school just start a couple of weeks ago? On this same front page, I read what seemed to be the start of an obituary for Mr. Frasier, which ran into half a page on pages 2 and 3. And finally 10 pages of classifieds. You’re doing a nice job there Miss Patty Leon. Keep it up.”

“Liberty County coach you would think after 17 years you would bring a championship home to the football team. C’mon administrator, you might need to go a different way.”

“To the caller who keeps calling in about the Liberty County High School Football team: you need to get your facts straight. First of all, there are procedures that are set in place when an event like that takes place. One, one coach stays with the player. Two, another coach greets the ambulance that comes in. Three, another coach takes the players off the field to keep from causing confusion. The coaches were with the player, the (other) players were concerned about the player. You need to get facts straight before you start calling in, lying like that in the Sound Off.”

“In reference to the recent letter to the editor from Bert Webb, concerning Liberty County/Hinesville’s combined millage rate, could you please find out how we stack up against the 10 highest areas in the state? I am looking for the combined city/county rate. I understand that Hinesville is above 46 mils. I want to thank Bert Webb for pointing this out and educating us. Thanks Bert.”

“I just moved here from Texas. My son’s high school is terrible. His teacher told him if he couldn’t cut the mustard then he needs to find another class. I called the principle and she still hasn’t call me back yet. It’s been a week.”

“This is in regards to the Midway Middle cafeteria worker taking away the lunch from the child.  Send your child money to get lunch.  Those are the rules. Follow them.”

“Why does the city of Walthourville water smell like a sewer and taste so bad?  Is it safe to drink?  It smells terrible!”

“This is a special sound off to the parents of the Liberty County School System. Parents, it is not professional for teachers to go to school with pink, red, blue or rainbow colored hair. Tattoos or piercings; but, we must remember this is a different time and a different breed of new educators unless you’re going to homeschool your kids or put them in private school.  We must deal with it, parents. Remember this is a different time of teaching’ this is from a retired educator of 31 years.”

“Regarding where you live and district you live in, if you have issues that you want resolved stop fussing about it here on Sound Off; it isn’t going to get to them. Don’t be a wimp, go to city council meetings. They are held, I believe, every month, or go to city hall and get contact information of who your city council person is.   You can also visit the cities’ websites and get their contact information.  On the same topic, if you have positive things to say about your sitting city council person let them know that as well.”

“For the person complaining about’s no one’s business who my doctor is or how many times I go to see my doctor. That is personal to the patient and no one else.  An obituary is the writing about the life of the person who just left us to be with the good Lord and last words are written often times by that person before passing or family members left to handle it.  If you have knowledge of any doctors doing something wrong than report it to the state. It has no room in our obituaries.”

“Regarding funding to fix things in subdivisions I have only one question; where did the money come from to build a new sign for Mills Creek Subdivision where Vicky Nelson, our city council person lives?”

“Attention parents make sure you have money on your kids lunch account. I know sometimes we forget to pay it but make sure you have money on your kids’ bank account, or the lunch clerks will take their lunches out of their hands and embarrass them until they have money on their account. Just go to midway middle school and you’ll witness it first hand, so sad.”

“Lord what is the world coming too, a 16-year-old shooting and killing his father? Lord have mercy on their family, and lord have mercy on our children.”

“I would be very surprised if this makes the sound off, just for your info everybody, if you all apply for a job at Liberty Elementary School, don’t waste your time, the principal is definitely making the school all white, if you don’t believe me just check it out. And no, I’m not a racist; I’m just stating the facts. Thank you for making LES all white again.”

 “To the person who keeps sending sound off bytes seemingly each week about certain folks getting discounts from businesses; know this, many businesses if you are 55 and older you get a discount, some you must be 65 or older.     Also know that if you are a veteran, retired, disabled veteran, active duty many businesses will give a discount as well.  I’m sure there are other types of discounts I’m not aware of.   If you want a discount, ask the business if you can have one and quit fussing about it here.”

“Paid county firefighters are a joke when the Liberty County fire chief can’t even run volunteer stations, promoting non-firefighters to captain, and losing trained members due to unethical behavior in the department. Waste of my taxes.”

“Absolutely not, pink hair is definitely not a professional  color for a teacher, neither is some of these natural hairstyles that teachers are rocking, but then again there is no professionalism  in liberty education some of our principals and of course some of our teachers so guess what the pink hair fits right in.”

“To the angry mom, if you point your finger at someone, three fingers point back at you. Finger one there was an open house finger two it is your responsibility as a parent to make sure your child has lunch money finger three the clerk only went by rules and regulations.”

“Ain’t this political process ridiculously and embarrassingly entertaining? What a circus! I’m having so much fun I’m going to name my next child Omarosa.”

“Donald Trump’s objective is to enrich himself and his family. When you can’t pay your mortgage, you can’t put food on the table and are unable to pay your family’s medical bills, people know that Donald Trump’s is  always going to have, when you and your family don’t. If you think that he cares about you and your family’s bottom line, he doesn’t. You and aren’t even a figment of his imagination if the truth be told. Corruption rules; Donald Trump is on the verge of murdering the party of Reagan politically.” 

“The President has somehow lost his sense of direction. He took an oath to support and defend American against all enemies foreign and domestic. The Russian interference continues and the president stands silent. The United States has the ability to bring the Russians to their knees and I’m not talking from a physical standpoint either. However, our leader must stand up for what’s right. The president appears to have become nothing more than a Russian propaganda machine.” 

“If you are on Medicare and Tricare for life, you can see how much your doctor is over charging you. For what they should be charging is the allowable rate that is posted on a Medicare statement.”

“Please understand the United States is the Russians’ target. The Russian state defines America as their primary adversary. The Russians know they can’t compete head-to-head with us economically, militarily, technologically, so they’ve created a new battlefield. They are not aiming to become an ally of the United States, but to weaken us from within. The Russians might not have hacked our voting machines, but they selectively amplified targeted disinformation and misinformation on social media. Sometimes using materials acquired by hacking and foreign de facto information and alliance with certain groups in America, the Russians arguably won a significant battel without most Americans knowing it took place. The United States electoral system is the heart of the world’s most powerful democracy; and, now thanks to the Russians, we’re at war with ourselves. Our democracy is under attack.”

“To the caller who supports Trump - I guess we do not share the same core values. I have a difficult time supporting someone who is a proven liar, an accused sexual abuser on many accounts, and a known adulterer. I truly have voter’s remorse.”

“Great Putin is coming to measure the drapes. Maybe he should go to Florida and check out the winter White House while he is here.”

“The Argentina newspapers are extremely happy with the trade wars involving the U.S. and the world. Argentina is now promoting it’s agriculture to Mexico and China.  They feel they can export corn and soybeans to new partners. Where is Sonny Perdue?”

“I have to wonder how the Trump family teaches their son on respect and to tell the truth. I was told that you have to model for your child so they see what you say.  You can only imagine what their son sees!”

“When Trump came on stage after his meeting with Putin he looked like a kid who just a good whipping from his Daddy.”

“Donald Trump is a seedy man, who loves being involved with seedy women. What an immoral human being who isn’t particularly bright in any manner. Trump first, please don’t let him, cheat you and your family.”

“Trump will never be loyal to the nation and its heritage. He has no values and does not accept responsibility for his actions. Trump shows little or no respect for others both personally and professionally. He never has, nor will he ever put the welfare of the nation before himself. Trump lacks the personal courage, integrity and intestinal fortitude to lead by example.   He does not handle adversity well at all and looks for the lease path of resistance. Into the unknown is where, Trump has placed the nation internal and external. He does not have the skills to be loyal to the nation and its heritage.”
