I am concerned about the disciplinary problems at Lott Middle and want to encourage all parents that have children there to have a voice and try to make a difference. There are changes that need to be made, but it's going to take parent participation to make these changes happen. We should be proud of all of our schools in this community and instead we have parents that are looking to see what other schools are an option for their child to have a safe place to have an education.

To Rhonda, Willie and Family. So sorry about your sweet dog Spencer. Here's a poem I found comfort in when I had to have my dog put to sleep. I hope you will find it comforting also. The Last Battle If it should be I grow frail and weak, And pain and suffering keep me from my sleep. Then you will do what must be done, For this last battle can’t be won. You will be sad I understand. But don’t let grief stay your hand. For on this day more than the rest, your love and friendship must stand the test. We’ve had so many happy years, You would not want me to suffer so, when the time comes , please let me go. Take me to where my needs they’ll tend, Only stay with me until the end. Hold me firm and speak to me, until my eyes no longer see. I know in time you will agree, This was a kindness you did for me. Although, my tail its last has waved, From pain and suffering I have been saved. Oh, please don’t grieve it must be you, Who has to decide this thing to do. We’ve been so close, we two, these years, Let not your heart hold any tears. We were blessed to have you in our lives. All the sweet memories we have of you, we will carry with us each and every day. Rest In Peace Spencer Our Loving and Faithful companion. Your Battle is now over. You will be greatly missed!

1. SINCE THE CITY VOTED TO BUILD THE COMMUNITY CENTER THE CONTRACTORS HAVE WORKED AT A SNAILS PACE, JUST DON'T SEEM LIKE IT SHOULD TAKE SO LONG TO BUILD A 7000 SQ FT BUILDING I KNOW IT WILL BE A BEAUTIFUL BUILDING WHEN IT IS FINISHED I JUST HOPE I LIVE LONG ENOUGH. ALONG THE SAME LINE I HAVE BEEN DRIVING TO THE GOLF COURSE TO CHECK PROGRESS ON THE NEW CC AND YOU KNOW WE HAVE A JEWEL OF A COMPLEX AT THE LAKE BUT IT SEEMS TO ME WE ARE NOT PROMOTING THE THINGS WE HAVE OUT THERE. WE HAVE A NICE PICNIC AREA THERE THAT NO ONE EVER USES, AN AMPHITHEATER THAT IS ROTTING DOWN BECAUSE NO ONE KEEPS IT UP AND NO ONE TRIES TO USE IT FOR SMALL CONCERTS OR OTHER THINGS THE COMMUNITY CAN PARTICIPATE IN AND ONE OF THE PRETTIEST LAKES IN NORTH MOBILE COUNTY WITH A NICE BEACH AREA AND SWIMMING AREA WHICH BOTH NEED MAINTENANCE AND FINALLY AN RV PARK THAT COULD BE A JEWEL IF IT WAS PROMOTED.

2. THERE NEEDS TO BE SOME PICNIC AREAS DEVELOPED WITH LAKE FRONT ACCESS, MORE TRASH RECEPTACLES ALONG THE ROADWAY AND THE LAKE RESTOCKED WITH FISH TO ENCOURAGE THE FISHERMEN AND LADIES TO COME BACK.THE PARKING AREA BY THE LAKE NEEDS ATTENTION ALSO.

3. THE REASON I BRING THESE THINGS UP IS IF WE DON'T START PROMOTING THE COMPLEX AND START ENCOURAGING PEOPLE TO COME AND USE THE FACILITIES THEY ARE GOING TO CONTINUE TO DETERIORATE. I KNOW THAT DOLLARS ARE SCARCE IN ALL COMMUNITIES NOW BUT WE NEED TO PLAN FOR THE UPGRADING OF THE COMPLEX . IF WE DO THIS VIGOROUSLY ALONG WITH PROMOTING OUR GOLF COURSE WE WOULD HAVE MORE GOING ON OUT THERE THAN THE CITY COULD TAKE CARE OF.

4. THE THING WE DO HAVE GOING FOR US OUT THERE IS THE BALL COMPLEX. THAT IS KEPT IN NICE SHAPE AND MANY TOURNAMENTS ARE PLAYED THERE. ANYTIME YOU GO OUT THERE THE BALL FIELDS ALL LOOK NEAT AND TRIMMED. IT'S A SHAME THE REST OF THE COMPLEX DOESN'T LOOK THE SAME. THANKS FOR READING MY RANT.

Maybe I was a little harsh on our leaders in previous post, but when you put yourself up for criticism in public office you need to be held accountable.I'm unable to attend council meetings due to work but watching the council meetings on youtube it's easy to see that our city government works off of intimidation the mayor is arrogant and she has at least two maybe three council members under her wing another words (yes men)who follow and do whatever she says but we as citizens can change this come election time.We as citizens can correct this negligence. They are elected to do as we say as a hole not as they think would be best when is the last time your council member came or called to ask an opinion of you except election time. Let the people vote it's not hard to set up voting stations in our city limits just notify people let the people of this town have a say and not do as you please democracy is a powerful word and a more powerful practice let's try it CITRONELLE

It's a crying shame Citronelle leaders have their own agendas and it's not the youth of this town for a fact our leaders suggested building a building for our youth and when bids come in from certain builders thousands under. The city don't have money now. Citronelle is ran through a back room buddy system you must be a relative or freind to get some help in this town.PRIDE I commend the call news on this topic hope the community will join cause the leaders are just POLITICIANS say anything

Citronelle police dep has a lot of good officers. Some have been there a long time. However, they have been at a disadvantage because they have never had anyone with outside training and experience come in and show them the proper way to run a police department. If the police department is in as much disarray as they say, then how can we expect people who have been there all these years to make a difference? I think someone needs to be brought in with new ideas, training and technology. Once our current officers see how to properly run a department, then they will be ready to step up for future promotions.

Why do people get dogs, then keep them chained out in freezing temps with no potection? I can't stand the thought of how cold and wet these poor animals get. Maybe the owners should be chained out there and see how it feels!

ATTN! Business owners. Please do not allow your employees to smoke at the main entrance of your establishment. Myself, along with millions of other people are highly allergic to cigarette smoke. If I am around it, I get deadly ill. If I have to walk through smoke to be able to shop in your store, I'm going somewhere else. We should not have to be subjected to this type bodily harm. Please make your smoking section behind, on the side, or in the parking lot of your business.

Does anyone ever get tickets for not having their children in car seats? I get sick every time I see someone driving around with a child sitting in their lap, especially when they are on a cell phone. This is very dangerous, I don't care who you are, if you are caught doing it, you need a ticket!

Do the basic rules of driving, such as turn signals, speed limit, and seat belts not apply to police officers and fire/rescue personnel? I have lived in this town all of my life and I seldom see the police and the fire dept. vehicles use turn signals or drive the posted speed limit they are here to enforce. I understand the need for speed when rushing to an emergency or call-out, but people....Buckle Up! When you are not en route to a crisis, i.e. your emergency lights are NOT on, then you too, should obey the laws of the road! Think about the example you are setting the young people of this community!

Our city is doing the same thing with the Community Center and the new property purchase as the Democrats did with the health care bill."Pass it then we'll see whats in it". In citronlle's case buy it, then we'll figure out who's gonna pay for it, or maybe we can just bankrupt the town. Don't you know that Nancy P and the gang are smarter than everyone else?

I AM A CONCERNED CITIZEN CONCERNED FOR OUR COMMUNITY. OUR CITY LEADERS DON'T SEEM TO KNOW HOW TO GOVERN GIVEN THE RECENT CONFLICTS ABOUT THE COMMUNITY CENTER AND IT'S FINANCING AND THEN TURN AROUND AND SPEND OVER 200,000 DOLLARS FOR 50+ ACRES OF LAND. WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE? I CERTAINLLY HOPE THE CITY FATHERS HAD DONE THEIR DUE DILIGENCE BEFORE COMMITING THE CITY TO SUCH A LONG TERM DEBT. BY VOTING TO PROCEED WITH THE CIVIC CENTER PROJECT ONE WOULD ASSUME THAT ALL THE I'S HAVE BEEN DOTTED AND THE T'S CROSSED. IF THIS HAS BEEN DONE THEN LETS MOVE AHEAD WITH PROJECT.BUT THEN WHY WOULD 3 OF THE CITY FATHERS TRY TO KILL THE PROJECT AFTER IT HAS BEEN VOTED ON SAYING THE CITY CAN'T AFFORD IT AND THEN TURN AROUND AND VOTE TO PURCHASE OVER 200,000 DOLLARS OF LAND. I KNOW I AM NOT THE BRIGHTEST APPLE ON THE BUSH BUT SOMETHING JUST DON'T ADD UP. MAYBE SOMEONE ELSE WOULD LIKE TO GIVE THEIR INPUT ON THIS SUBJECT. I THOUGHT THE LONG TERM GOAL WAS TO MOVE CITRONELLE FORWARD AND IN ORDER TO DO THAT EVERYONE MUST WORK TOGETHER AND IN HARMONY AND ALSO BE TRUSTED BY THE PUBLIC AT LARGE.

Hey folks, don't you realize it's a priviledge to have grocery carts? You could be carrying your groceries in your hands. So do the curtious thing and put your buggies up when you are finished. Also, there is a city ordinance that fines people $200 if they remove a buggy from the store you are shopping at. Just saying!!

I wish some of the businesses around town would take a little pride and not leave their big blue garbage cans on or near the street for days at a time. Not only is this dangerous, it's trashy

To Mr. Danny Daniels: Thank You!! Your article this week was the best yet. Sure wish more people would start speaking up and out. It is really sad to think that THIS is what has become of our young people today. They must all have a much better income than we do. WAKE UP PARENTS!!

Is there not an ordinance in Citronelle, that would make the parents responsible for their children and teens? If so Why is it not enforced? They are allowed to walk and play ball or whatever, in middle of some of our bussiest streets. They act like they are daring you to run over them. God forbid you do accidently hit one, I can just see the law suits now. I recently witnessed 2 teens with a basket ball walking down the middle line of W. State St., they were forcing the speeding traffic to go around them, and trying to bounce the ball over the cars as they went by. I think it a disgrace to our community to see this going on in the middle of our streets, and ganging up in our parking lots, trashing the whole area. Decent parents keep watch over their children and don't allow them to participate in these activities.

Its hard for me tell the dates on the recorded premeeting and council meetings so i'm not sure about this. According to the ones 9/9 , the mayor is getting back to the building of the skate board arena. I'm glad to hear this. It looks like the young people of our city is going to finally have another sport to participate in. A rugged and extreme sport it is and I think they should have certain safety rules to observe. And maybe if its not too much to ask, they should be certified at least at a novice level before skating in the arena. This can be done by the young adults.

Thank you for putting in the VIP's for each High school in the area. With so many negative stories, it's nice to see positive things in the newspaper. And thanks to the businesses that sponsor these pages. Kudos to you too!
