    The city of Piedmont needs to do something about its sidewalks along Main Street, It’s becoming a trip hazard for walkers and those in Wheelchairs. I traveled the stretch from Sitze Barber Shop down to Subway on 10/1 and lost count on how many times I was almost thrown from my wheelchair. Both sides of the street are equally as bad.

    The city of Piedmont needs to make some of the businesses put a fresh coat of paint on their buildings. I know not every business is super successful and afford to spend a bunch of money on their stores, but Paint doesn’t cost much. Or maybe use a hose and wash the siding off. I doesn’t cost that much to spruce up our town.

    I think it’s a shame that the ozark heritage festival craft show is no longer held on the Clearwater high school baseball field. The parking downtown is terrible, the crafts on the greenway are so crowded you can’t hardly get through. It’s ridiculous that because a few piedmont merchants think they are being left out so they had to have it changed. The chamber of commerce should open your eyes and see that the downtown merchants have plenty of publicity and people have shopping opportunities while watching the parade on Main Street … I will never go to another craft show as long as it’s down in that “hole” on the green way .. good grief, wake up and put it back out at the high school!

    We as the community feel that there should be some changes to the Dollar General Store in Piedmont, Mo
    You can not find anything without having to move storage shelves or totes. The previous manager Leigh always had everything in order. the stock room is were the “Stock” was kept until able to stock the shelves. When you ask the current employees something , they tell you they don’t know if they have it and will not help you look for it. Recently i went into the store and there were 5-6 employees outside on brake and the isles were cluttered you could not get through. We all need to pull together and call headquarters, as I did. We are a tourist town, this looks bad on our community. Hopefully with the new manager coming in, we will get this straightened out.

    A few weeks ago, someone had the nerve to walk into my yard and take my ceramic elephant yard ornament. I do not appreciate it and I have something to say about it. Not everyone was born with money or had someone to hand it down to them, we have to work for ours. Also, I hope it makes you fell real good to take from not only me but my children. My 4 year old enjoyed to go out and sit on that elephant every morning as she watched her sisters walk to the bus stop. When she woke up to go that morning it was gone.. Try explaining that to a child.. So the next time you want to steal from someone you need to think about who you will be hurting from your gain. One of the ten commandments state “THOU SHALT NOT STEAL”!!!!!!! Have a Blessed Day!

    This SoundOff! column is a terrible idea and journalistic trash. While the preamble states that there will be no personal attacks or libel, this is precisely what has been published. Giving an anonymous platform for people with personal vendettas, axes to grind or political attacks is just a bad idea, plain and simple. The accused have no way to confront their accuser or respond with facts. It’s just bad mouthing and gossip. You are in serious legal jeopardy.

    Last month I submitted an article for the sound off complaining about our Dollar General store in Piedmont. Today I visited the Dollar General store and was completely satisfied with the new management and the former employees. They are cleaning up the store and are more friendly and helpful then previously. Tony the new manager was very thankful for my comment. He said he had more complaints than compliments. I had told him I was one of them that was complaining also. But I can see a total change in the attitude of the employees And the cleanliness of the store.

    I’m brainstorming for help and ideas on how to find massive spayed/neutered cats a home where they will be cared for properly!!! By “properly,” I mean given vaccinations yearly, given flea/tick protection, given shelter from the elements, be fed good food and given fresh water daily…oh and LOVE!!! Piedmont Pound Paws, Inc, does not have the funds, fosters, or facility to rescue at least 50+ cats/kittens that were dumped on the Greenville Cat Lady and she is STILL struggling. She’s NOT going to let any go unless she knows they will be taken care of and she cannot possibly do this all herself. Personally, I am appalled at the Greenville community for not seeing what they were doing to her when they referred every irresponsible person to her, for years and years. Does anyone have any ideas and willingness to actually DO SOMETHING to help??? I’ve taken on as much as I can handle without help. Maybe help get photos to help me get them courtesy listed??? Maybe offer to help her clean sometime??? Maybe adopt a fixed cat from her and take proper care of it??? Or even adopt one that Piedmont Pound Paws, Inc was able to get from her, give it “the works,” and list up for adoption at http://piedmontpoundpaws.rescuegroups.org. ANYTHING??? PLEASE???

    Why? Why does South Iron have to beat a team by 90+ points? What does that say for sportsmanship? There is none anymore. So you have the best team in the area, good for you! That is awesome and wonderful for the student athletes. But, the team is lead by the Coach and by him keeping starters in the game for a long time and running up points against a team that is not as good as yours is a low class move. What if your child played for the loosing team? How would it make you feel? Your child feel? Would it want them to continue to play sports? Compete at anything?
    This is no way to TEACH children in any way shape or form on or off the court. It is a sad day for SI if they think this makes their school look good.
