VALDOSTA — There is a "No Left Turn" sign on Forrest Street Extension, turning into Branch Point. Apparently, there are lots of people who don't understand this because I have almost gotten into three different accidents on two different days for people turning left. The reason for the no left turn? Because if you're waiting for traffic to clear so you can make the left turn, those coming behind you from Bemiss, do not see you until it's basically too late.
I'm not the first, nor the last, to thank the county commissioners for the beautiful roadside colors every day of every week. The blue and green trash cans are what the community needed. We are certain to attract more visitors to the community. “Wild life.” Stupid idea!
Just what I thought would happen with this forced trash pickup in the county. The first day my trash was to be picked up, the trash truck was a no show. I tried to call Advanced Disposal, the line was busy first three times I tried to call. When I did get a answer it was the ol’ ‘all the people were busy with other calls,’ then I was told they could not answer the phone to call back later. Called the county, the lady at the county office checked with Advanced Disposal she said they would pick up my trash within 24 hours. I have not seen them yet.
To the comment about employers cutting hours so as not to pay health benefits, it is obvious that you have never run a business! With all of the costs associated with operations, the owner is the first one to go without a paycheck, sometimes for months at a time! Take a little personal initiative and buy your own health insurance! The nanny state has got to stop!
