KLID 'S "VOICE YOUR THOUGHT'S"
Poplar bluff schools
I was just wondering why when you live within 1 mile from
school you cant ride the school bus. They wonder why so many kids skip
school, or end up else where. Or smoke cigarettes assault other kids. Or
worse the get abducted or kidnapped, wake up things does happen. 911
happened so anything can happen Right. If its all about gas money then maybe
every one can chip in on a few cents for the taxes. Everyone don't have
transportation. Thats why they ride school buses or i would think
so. I'd rather for my kids to get to school safe than get calls from the
police department or emergency room or to call the police department to
report my child MISSING Anyone thats concerned about this call the Poplar
Bluff schools and complain.I wouldn't want my child's picture on KFVS 12
or FOX news.........
Poplar Bluff hospital
comments = I think its a shame that you go to the emergency room . You wait with a
sick child and seat there for three hours and they cant find the resource to help you.
Its no wonder people don't want to go there you could die waiting on them. I'm telling
everyone to not wast there time up there.
Satellite Dishes on the property
To the person complaining about the satellite dishes
blocking your view of the street.
First of all, as a radio broadcaster, I can almost guarantee you that
if the dish is up there.. It's being used, trust me. I have 2 ugly
looking satellite dishes on the property of my radio station here in South
Carolina. If I didn't need them, I'd take them down!
Secondly, it's the radio stations property. NOT YOURS. If you don't
like it, don't drive over there anymore.
THIRDLY... Calling the City about "this nuisance" won't do you much
good. Why? The property the radio station is on is THEIR property... And the city
can't/doesn't regulate private property.
Fourthly.... There are LAWS PREVENTING city municipality's, landlords and
land owners from preventing people from putting up satellite dishes.
Get your facts straight. And oh yeah, but a little nicer about things.
You catch more flies with honey. I bet if you approached the radio
station in a kind, polite manner instead of yelling, screaming and
threating, they'd be more willing to help.
My two cents.
I think the people at KLID are great. You do so many wonderful things, for people.
Swap Shop is cool but having it on Internet is awesome, I sometimes don't have time to
listen to swap shop, but I never miss a beat all I got to do is when I get home and not
busy just click my mouse and there you are. The trivia is fun. And the contest are cool. I
just wish you guys could be on air more often than you are. I really don't care for the
talk shows are whatever them are call. But you guys are great and to the others that
think your place needs to be cleaned up-why don't you'd volunteer so of your time to
help with clean up instead of complaining, because the guys do their best to give to us.
I'm not complaining, you guys are great. You do so much for your listeners to make
being on radio easier. You have swap shop on air and online. I enjoy the Trivia
Challenge I try to go on daily. And for last the person that complained about the station
needing to be cleaned up. Maybe you should volunteer some time and help out and give
back just half of what the station does for their listeners.
There are still good people left in this world
I went to a local eye care center where they were offering
free diabetic eye exams. They have this new technology which i found
quite interesting. It shows the back of your eye. What the Dr. Would
see in old time exams. This way you yourself get to see what your optic
nerves look like. It was very informational and Dr. Milton with the
Milton eye care center took his time to explain what you were seeing and
ask if you had any questions. All for Free! He also made me an
appointment for the following day for a field check since i have a history of
glaucoma in my family. When i asked how much the exam would cost he
said it was free too. Then they sent me to San Fran bread store to have
my blood sugar and pressure checked then they add lunch and a drink to
that. I was quite impressed with the Dr. And his staff. Thanks for
the Christian spirit in a world so full of uncaring heath care providers
Mules/TR Royals Ball Game
I am very disappointed in the comments and actions Mr. Gary
Simmons displayed in his recent broadcast of the Mules/Royals
Basketball Game..I think that he acted inappropriately and his comments in many
cases were very out of line. To constantly refer to the ref as "The
Qulin Ref"??? Where did that come from, the man is not from Qulin...To
voice publicly that his position on the PB Board of Education would ensure
that this man no longer received employment as a referee for the PB
District, and going on to suggest no other area schools utilized his
service either, was nothing short of contemptible. I would not wonder if
Mr. Simmons has put himself, his district, and your station in line for a
liability lawsuit, and could not blame the referee at all for doing
so. I would urge Mr. Simmons to remember that in the "Battle of Butler
County" the majority of the "other part of the county" Twin Rivers
parents, students, grandparents and residents SPEND OUR MONEY IN Poplar !
Bluff just like the students and parents of Poplar Bluff School
District do....We will remember Mr. Simmons comments, unprofessional
behavior, on air "booing" while commentating the game, demanding on the air that
the referee should be removed physically from the game/gym...all of
these points are being discussed and Mr. Simmons might want to consider
is a High School Basketball Rivalry worth losing even a portion of his
tire sales to the PB Mules Rivals of Twin Rivers???? I have known and
done business with Mr. Simmons, I believed him to be an honest man of
integrity. I now must force myself to question his integrity, and believe
if he is truly the Christian man he claims to be, he owes the boys and
the Twin Rivers Community a formal apology for his indiscretion,
immature remarks, and lack of professional integrity while commentating a
game where all parties, players, fans, are retail shoppers and taxpayers
of the same county.
