Thanks, Good Samaritan

I would like to the thank the Good Samaritan who found my credit card May 4, at the Publix store in Holly Hill.

The person turned it into the store and made my day. Thanks.

Thank you, everyone

I want to thank everybody fighting this virus.

There are so many I would not be able to mention them all, that includes post office, sanitation, grocery store workers, nurses, doctors, paramedics, fire department and police department.

Philippians 4:13 says, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Lets all be safe. Thanks again every body.

In response to 'Not wild about feral cats on Peninsula Drive'

My neighbor called me and asked me to help him.

He had a roof problem. The roofer went up and there was a feral cat with three kittens underneath the eve.

The next could day a guy comes by with a lost dog. He was looking for the owner. My neighbor told him the dog wasn't his. He has enough trouble with feral cats. The neighbor with the dog said he had 10 feral cats hanging outside at his house.

I am looking for a Pied Piper to drive the feral cats over the bridge to mainland. We have to drive some of the cats out. The way the city is doing it isn't working. I am a snow bird, so I will be going back and when I return I will probably find the cats living in the house while I pay the taxes.

Figure it out quicker

I think its sad that people who cannot afford to be unemployed are being held hostage by the government.

These people who are making hundreds of thousands of dollars a year can't figure out how to pay the unemployed. Maybe if they were not paid for a couple weeks, they would figure it out quicker.

Schedule a wait time

Just a thought.

Could an electronic sign be erected with a "Wait Time," sort of like Disney and park rides. Like "Stopped Train," so we know if the train will be stopped for 5 or 10 minutes or 30 minutes. Then we can decide if we want to wait it out or turn around?

In response to: 'Shame on Hacienda Del Rio'

For those of you complaining about lot rent in communities during the Covid-19 pandemic, you should be ashamed of yourselves.

The management companies didn't create this virus, but they are required to follow the guidelines. And what would happen if they didn't restrict access to amenities? Chances are, the virus would spread.

To date, Hacienda del Rio has not had a single case of Covid-19. But if they hadn't restricted access and the virus spread, you whiny self-centered jerks would be the first to file a lawsuit.

I'm glad to know I have neighbors who don't care about the health and well-being of others. Your day of judgment is coming.

In response to: 'Shame on Hacienda Del Rio'

I agree with "Shame on Hacienda Del Rio."

A portion of our rent goes to the maintenance of the pools and clubhouses We deserve a rebate for not being able to use either, for almost 2 months. My concern, also, is that one year ago, the management was petitioned for a handicap lift in the large outdoor pool. It was OK'd, then denied, then OK'd again, finally being approved.

We were told,in January that it was delivered and is yet to be installed at the pool. Shame on Sun Properties for not having the lift installed and not giving the residents a rebate on their rent.

Closed pool

To the people that have no use of their pool, I really feel bad for you.

Maybe you don’t watch any news, but there is a big problem going on in the world. People are dying, losing their jobs, have no money, health insurance, food and, in some cases, not much of a future for some time to come.

Are you still getting your Social Security, Medicare and did you get your $1,200 check? You’re complaining about a closed pool. You should thank God for what you have and how lucky you are. Some people would sacrifice your life to get theirs back, so be careful what you wish for.

In response to 'Don’t Be Selfish'

The Holocaust was an awful event in world history, but do not compare that to our current situation and the stripping away of our Constitutional Rights due to the coronavirus.

Educate yourself on our Constitution and Bill of Rights that our Founding Fathers in their infinite wisdom created for us. We live in an amazing country, the USA. Our Constitution is what makes it like no other country in the world.

We were given our rights -- life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness -- by our creator, God. The Constitution was created to protect those rights. That means no government, nor person, can take those rights away from us.

We are the only country that was created free and with that freedom comes consequences. Every legal citizen has freedom of choice. Yes, people make bad choices all the time and either they or others have to sometimes suffer those consequences good or bad.

If someone wants to go to their other properties, that they own, that is their freedom of choice and liberty. If I refuse to wear a mask, that is my liberty. If you don’t want the freedoms that our Constitution guarantees, then you have the freedom to leave.

But I’m sure I know why you still live here. You see, until our freedoms began to be targeted and denied, I don’t think any of us really understood what makes this country so great. Let’s not take our Constitution and our freedoms for granted anymore.

Animal is your responsibility

Glad to hear Daytona Beach Animal Control is doing their job by properly informing the public.

Too often, people trap feral cats and dump them somewhere. This is illegal. Florida Statute 828.13(3) states: "Any person who is the owner or possessor, or has charge or custody, of any animal who abandons such animal to suffer injury or malnutrition or abandons any animal in a street, road, or public place without providing for the care, sustenance, protection, and shelter of such animal is guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree, punishable as provided in s.775.082 or by a fine of not more than $5,000, or by both imprisonment and a fine."

If you trap an animal, by law you have custody of that animal and you are required to provide proper care. In other words, take it to a shelter.

Give them a tip jar

Could the supermarkets put secure tip jars at the cashiers so we can show our appreciation to the employees who show up at work everyday.

The tips could be divided equally among all workers and one hourly and one supervisor can divide the money. A thank you for working for us during this pandemic.
