    It's sad I cannot be there tonight but to be honest, what the hell is the difference. What needs to happen is to get rid of the so called commisioners that have the greatest good old boy system and con job I have ever seen. I have lived here many years and have watched Labelle go down hill for no other reason than greed and if you protest it you are removed from your position of work if it has to do with the county
