-- — Living on Williams Street has been a mess these past couple of months. On top of the fact that the city workers continue to block my driveway with their vehicles and inconvenience my ability to go home for lunch, they have damaged my yard, landscaping and flagged sprinkler system at what seems to be my expense. Completely unacceptable! Also, I sure do hope that they remove the extreme slant in the road prior to paving. It’s not exciting to see the rainwater now flooding into my yard!
We have had our health insurance for the last six years. Each year, our monthly premium has increased 8 to 12 percent but no more. This coming January, our rate will increase 72 percent. You say, “Thank your insurance company and not Obamacare.” I say my most heartfelt thank you to both along with the millions of uninsured entitled Americans who will now pay little to nothing for better coverage than I ever received!
The truth is that your current health insurance, private or not, will either cancel your plan or raise the price to force you into the exchange. The point is to get everyone into a single-payer system. It is too late to do anything about it now. You can always get in line for disability, cell phone and EBT, etc.
Searched the Lowndes County Commissioners website for a list of the SPLOST county projects if SPLOST is voted back in. Could not find any information. SPLOST must not be as important for the county residents as it is for the city residents.
The county treats the city as a step-child, constantly bickering over the division of SPLOST and LOST funds. The county knows full well the city’s needs but yet refuses to share these funds. County Commission, “have you no shame?”
