“Perhaps ya’ll should consider renaming Sound Off to Whiners Corner. Maybe alternate it from week to week and have another called Solutions Column. One week let the whiners have their forum and the next let those with positive attitudes that seek solutions and get a plan of action to resolve issues have their say.
