If police would enforce the no-parking law along U.S. 441 and give out tickets to offenders, we wouldn't need to spend taxpayers' money on an ugly fence that nobody wants.
Now we are going to build an ugly fence, plaster no-parking signs and criminalize people for stopping and enjoying the beauty of Paynes Prairie. I thought Alachua County promoted eco-tourism and wanted tourists to stop and enjoy our beauty and natural resources. What should we do for recreation, go to the mall?
The solution for alligator viewing-problem is to open the world's largest alligator farm and charge admission.
I love watching the Gainesville City Commission when the city's own commissioners are nodding their heads in disbelief of what their mayor just made decisions on.
Now won't that be a hoot. We can't even get through a City Commission meeting with five commissioners. If we go to seven, we will have to move to the Comedy Channel.
What a nightmare for citizens of Gainesville, once GPD has to respond to this newly annexed area of predominantly college students . . . Good luck trying to get an officer to respond in your neighborhood when GPD moves in there. The mayor warned the City Commission to delay this particular annexation.
I am sick and tired of Cox Cable exploiting its customers with these constant increases in costs and giving nothing in return. Maybe one day we will have some competition and we can choose.
It is a shame that we have to pay for cable services that we do not receive. This is not the first time that the cable has been out for three to four hours or even until midnight. Yet we pay the same price. Nobody gets a deduction. Do they pay for services they do not receive?
Schools that get "A's" probably should be embarrassed because what they are doing is advertising their social status. The schools that I want to know about are the ones that got the "A's" or the "F's" contrary to their economic standings - how many of the high-minority and high-poverty schools did better than "F"?
