-- — Sad to see so many disappointing, mean comments about the Bridgemen’s trip to Hawaii. I had two children in the band and was excited for them for each trip they went on, California twice, New York, twice, Chicago, Orlando. The trips are planned well in advance, payment schedules set up and if enough kids can’t go or their parents can’t afford it, the band doesn’t go. So, I am sure that with all the negativity, the trip will get canceled again, sad for the kids, sadder that parents forget it’s about the kids, not them.
Can’t help but to wonder why Lowndes County is wasting the taxpayers’ money on civil action against Deep South Sanitation, instead of putting all that money on more important issues. If I have to write out a check for the service then I have the right to choose who I write that check out to. Deep South has given me wonderful service, they are locally owned and operated and the money stays right here in Lowndes County. The Commissioners say that they haven’t had any complaints about Advanced; they haven’t read the rant and rave section. I say next election is out with the old and in with the new. We the people of Lowndes County can make our voices heard loud and clear then.
Okay, my fearless leader is a very busy man with a lot of national and worldwide issues that need his attention. I don’t mean to be insensitive, but maybe those living in “Tornado Alley” should either take extra precautions during tornado season or move away. There is no reason why there shouldn’t be storm shelters in every home and facility in Tornado Alley and surrounding areas. After several years of devastation — everyone should’ve known better.
