WHAT HAPPENS IN PRISON...SHOULD NOT BE REFERENCED IN COURT?
What has happened to common sense, decency and respect in our society? The absence is now invading children’s’ programs, politics and more; we can’t get away from bad behavior anywhere. Disney has its first boy princess and apparently boys can be such! A Jacksonville area police officer was shot by a bad guy and spoke at the criminal’s sentencing…now the cop will be scrutinized. He took a bullet for society and I, for one, will give him some leeway.
In Brevard we have to appreciate the sentiment of commissioners Isnardi and Pritchett, but they need to remember what the commission voted last year, before their terms began, in phasing out the charitable donations of tax dollars. While the political committee set up to determine the outlay of those funds in the first year of the cutback saw fit to eliminate funding for Meals on Wheels and others, they funded transportation for a charter school. Needless to say the priorities of the committee were out of whack. But, that’s no reason to dig back into the budget to find more charitable dollars. The commission could have chosen to override the committee’s decision, yet chose not to. Then live with the call! Meals on Wheels said they would!
