Now that the elections are over I can only breathe a sigh of relief and sing a line from Roy Clark’s old country song, “THANK GOD AND GREYHOUND SHE’S GONE”.

There were so many people running for office it made me wonder “WHY?” Color me skeptic but I don’t believe there are that many civic minded folks in this town. Maybe it’s the big bucks or the prestige associated with the office. I guess we will have to wait and see how things work out.

There is really no reason why we can’t have a well organized team who will work together to make our little town a good and safe place to live and work. In my opinion the drug problem is one of the main reasons we have so much shooting and killing and breaking into houses. I will be glad when we get the new jail. Heck, some people would be better off in jail (housing and food furnished) than they are on the streets. We better wake up and do something or we will gradually turn into a ghost town.  We have no where to go except UP. So everyone step up and do what they can to help these elected folks. SEE SOMETHING SAY SOMETHING.
