Lots of grass needs cutting: The comment about how the post office looks is the postmaster’s responsibility. Who is making decisions on when the grass gets cut on the county roads and state roads? I understand gas cost is up and maybe the county farm has more than they can do, but really?

Daytime moonlighting? How can a full-time county employee be able to work a side job during work hours? The law might allow Robert Stokely to take cases on the side, but his employer shouldn't. What if all county employees did it? Go part-time or focus on county business full-time.

Roads smoother down South: It's funny how voters believe that Georgia's roads are in fair and poor condition. They should drive up north where the roads have been chewed up by snow plows. The roads here are smooth compared to up there.

Don’t like? Don’t look: The Confederate flags that have been hanging beside General Robert E. lee’s memorial in Lexington, Virginia, have been taken down. Why? Because a few people merely didn’t like it. The memorial is in a closed door facility. If you don’t like it, don’t go into the memorial chapel.

Thank you: Many, many thanks to the very kind lady who rescued my debit card in Target and caught up with me in the parking lot. I was lucky to have such a good person such as yourself find it. Thanks so much.
