This past week in our local newspaper two articles really tickled the hell out of me. First, to me having different area commissioners visit our county is a good idea. To exchanging ideas is moving our county forward. Well done, Ronnie Beale. But what caught my reading eye is what our county manager said, to a point he is right, but he said something about if God made a more beautiful place than here he must have kept it a secret, but wait a second, if our good Lord never drove down Lake Emory Road, he might have kept our area a secret, too. There we have empty lots with many critters and more than our share of business dumps. Come take a look Mr. County Manager and see what you have missed.
Second, the dumbest of all is the boon doggle last week if a church lasts 100 years anywhere, they should be given honors for serving the community. Thank you from all of us. By the way election is coming soon, please vote your choice, and if you don’t, don’t crab about anything that happens. With respect,
