Deputy is human, and he made mistakes

Deputy put on leave for suspicion of DUI | April 27, story

Deputies are

only human, too

Hernando County residents need to remember when they comment or leave ridiculously sarcastic remarks, they are reading an article told by the media and the Sheriff's Office and I don't think people should attack without knowing everything.

Deputies are people, too; they are human. I understand some jobs are in the public eye and there are a lot of expectations from the community. But they are people who deal with the same day-to-day situations as we all do.

Deputy David Feger saved my son at the age of 17. He was taking pills and got caught with some in his possession. I truly believe in my heart it was Deputy Feger that made a difference in his life that day and made him realize drugs are not what life is about. My son is now 23 years old and a college graduate with a great job.

Please remember, everyone has a personal life, and it is a shame when it is shared with the public. Please remember the mistakes and situations you have or have had before you comment on someone else's personal life.

SunWest causes neighbor distrust

As a resident of Leisure Beach and a member of Werner Boyce Park Citizen Support Organization, I object to the mitigation project caused by the SunWest mine dredging. This should be no surprise to anyone involved; getting this far into the project without consulting adjacent neighbors has caused distrust.

To compensate for the SunWest dredging, Commissioner Jack Mariano and company plan to plow over berms adjacent to Signal Cove and Leisure Beach's access channel. The proposed construction area has remained undisturbed for about 40 years. With no presentable impact study and no guarantee that residents of Leisure Beach and Signal Cove will not be negatively affected, we cannot allow this to go forward.

It is curious that there is so much support for SunWest Harbourtowne, a community that doesn't exist yet, and no support for the more than 1,000 homes in Leisure Beach and Signal Cove. County commissioners have not been advocates for our communities in the past, and there is no reason to expect that they are acting in our interest in the case of the mitigation project.

If this project proceeds without acceptable studies and written guarantees, I am sure the voters of our communities will respond appropriately.
