It would not surprise me in the least to one day read a Lake Wales News article declaring one of our city officials or commissioners being injured or deceased from stepping on one of the many “land mines” that have been planted around our fair city. OK, so maybe not “literal” land mines that remove arms and legs, but the “figurative” landmines that are planted by some, always under the guise of “concerned citizenship.”

I am referring to a recent letter to the editor written about our City Manager Terry Leary and Commissioner Betty Wojcik. I too, am a concerned citizen of Lake Wales and am deeply aware of the current economy and welfare of our City, as well as the overall harbinger of national doom that seems to be causing everyone to “finger point” in anticipation of the ship sinking. I don’t know the individual that wrote the letter, but I want to imagine him as a fair guy who just wants the best for the City of Lake Wales. Of concern is the accusatory tone of his article and the “let’s think the worst of our city leaders, no matter what they do” ranting that summarizes the content!
