So what you are saying is that I need to rest on Sunday while I watch my family starve because I cannot make ends meet at my store? Will god help me lower my rent payment? Will god put food on my table? Do I just believe so much in him that he will do this for me? Let me tell you something, I believe in the lord, but I cannot wait for him to provide for my family. I have to work for a living. Go ahead and protest against this issue. On second thought, protest any issue on making positive changes to this town. People will just spend their hard earned money somewhere else and Port St. Joe will just be full of people like you and alot of foreclosed homes.

You have a good point Mr.Miller. I work in Panama City at a company for 18 years. I want to work in Port St. Joe. I have applied for numerous positions in town. I know the saying that it's not what you know, it's who you know. In Port St.Joe, it's what church you go to. This is a common question I am asked at an interview. Why? They should be asking me questions about my resume and how I qualify for the position. I was told by the city that I was over qualified for a position. Now baroness77, your have a good point. There are many good people in this town. There just needs to more citizens to stand up for this town to make it a better place to live.

This story reminds me of the gentleman in my neighborhood who proudly flys his Christian flags on his minivan, but will not wave to me as he drives by - LOL - I have many friends in the city that do not have to display the 10 Commandments on their front lawn for me to recognize their Christian spirit. Nor do they require my church affiliation in order to justify my worth as a person. Free thinking in Port St Joe is catching on......I think it's going to be big!!
