“Where did the tattoo shop connected to the pawn shop go? I recently divorced, was planning on celebrating by selling jewelry I took from her and pawning it for a tattoo. I loved tat shop at a pawn shop concept. Sheer genius.” “I want to make sure the city considers internal candidates when it comes[…]

“To the Citizens’ Voice person who wants the Ingham moved: Did you realize that she was the most decorated ship in the Coast Guard? She was around long before you. Please have some respect for American history. I’m proud every time I see her!” “Maybe the reader who would like to redesign the Truman Waterfront[…]

“Is the mayor talking to the businesses on the side streets just off Duval? I’m friends with a restaurant owner on Southard Street just off Duval who said his business is off 15-20 percent on weekends since the Mall on Duval began. Stop talking about how business is up because of this. It isn’t up[…]

“It’s happened! The first major ‘scar’ has appeared on Whitehead Street.

“Save the humans! The Earth will be fine …” “Can we please put to rest the bickering over bikes vs. cars, military plane noise, dog poop, servers calling one ‘honey,’ tourists doing touristy things, slow Conch Trains, etc. Those things make our island unique.
