Can someone please tell me why gas is 8.00 a gallon
at the Race Trac on Merrill Rd and how these people can get away with it. This is just wrong, and people aren't going to put up with this.

This is not how you contact Amaro. You have to contact First Coast News directly. I went to their website and sent them your post. You should call them so they will follow up. NO WAY they are charging $8 - are you serious? Get a reporter over there!

my son was placed in long term relative care while i completed my case plan, as i was finishing, they suddenly moved out of state. at the time i had visitation, ans was in full compliance with DCF...after they moved out of Duval county, fl., i lost contact and wasn't allowed to call, write or have any contact with my son, as they would change the phone numbers. my case worker did not keep me informed of their whereabouts, i had to hire a P.I. just to find out where they were. at the time they absconded with him, i was liable for child support in duval county, but after they left, i'm not sure what happened to that, as of now those records aren't in their system, but i have the documents at home. now they are back after 8 years, living in dixie county, and somehow my whole case got moved there. this is a 3 hr drive from my home, and i have a new case there somehow. all i want is for them to adopt him since i obviously have no other option but to pay them for kidnapping my child.. there's more to this story, if you're interested... i'm truly at a loss and am tired of being called a victim. my contact is

How rude!!! An elderly person comes to you for help and you dare address her so disrespectfully, so right calling yourself in hog heaven. You are so incompetent for this position, that I just won't even bother as many others, I am sure to seek help from a token news reporter. You really need to work on your grammar being in this field. You bring shame to your own kind.

Ken, Recently, my husband responded to an ad in the newspaper regarding hearing aids. The ad listed a half price sell for a hearing aid,free hearing test, and a 30-day free trial. The advertisted price of the hearing was around a thousand dollars, from two thousand. We each had a hearing test. My husband (74 yrs. old) was found to have a hearing loss. The hearing aid specialist said that the hearing aid advertisted would not be a good one for him; he needed two hearing aids, total charge 4,498.00. We gave him an American Express card to hold the order and were thinking about using their interest free credit services to pay for the aids. We took the application for the loan home and were the last to leave his office that evening. We thought it overnight and the next morning called there office to cancel the order. My husband spoke to the hearing specialist and told him, he did not want the aids to cancel the order. He called American Express an hour later to find that Clyde Garner the hearing specialist had changed the total amount for the aids on our account. ALL $4,498.00.
We were shocked! We told American Express the situation and they are looking into this. The complany is Hearing Aid Center, Inc. 1101 Old St. Augustine Rd.,#120, Jax., Fl 32257 Clyde Garner Hearing Aid Specialist. I wonder how many other people have been taken advantage by them?

It is easy to see why people get themselves into these difficulties. They live in a fog.

Not sure where to post this so I thought I would try in a few places. For several weeks now, I have noticed the American Flag at Cumberland Forest Subdivision on Old Kings Road South flying...and it is shredded! I have attempted to find the homeowner's association to bring it to their attention, however, all phone numbers to it have been disconnected.

Ken Is Dead

There will be no more questions for Ken. He is very dead. His answer column is dead. He and it, unlike Elvis, will remain dead. Use your own common sense to solve your problems - oops, which you obviously do not have or you would not be asking the deceased Ken all these stupid questions. Ever heard of Google? It's the new and improved Ken.
