Regarding Brian Tripp from the consulting firm W.K. Dickson and his statements regarding per capita water usage, I must disagree. It is easy to do a web search for "per capita water usage" and find several reliable sources that all consistently state the average usage per person is 80 to 100 gallons of water per day. Mr Tripp is quoted "In 2010 the average residential water use per capita per day in Franklin was 175 gallons, which is actually spot on with the national average that is also 175 gallons per capita."

The Supreme Court once again reveals its penchant for the game of kick-the-can-down-the-road (emulating the United States Congress no doubt) once more failing in their responsibility of interpreting the Constitution. If that's still their purpose, it's hard to tell.

Nikki Corbin is always a delight to watch in everything she does and she captures all her parts perfectly.

America is headed straight towards destruction. And this destruction will come as a judgment from God. This judgment can only be averted if we seek God and turn ourselves and our country around.

Responsibility for the ungodliness which now prevails in our great country belongs to each one of us. But why me, you are probably thinking, to yourself. Because God says so! You see, God is going to hold us responsible for everything. For what we have done and for what we failed to do.

In the Word of God (the Holy Bible) it says, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments; for this is the whole duty of man.” (Ecclesiastes 12:13).
