"I can't believe that anyone thinks that the DOT/and or Colquitt County
officials can keep up with the condition of every tree that stands next
to every road in the county.
I also can't believe that anyone would use that belief to profit from
the deaths of two young people except for maybe the lawyers who would
get 50-60 percent of the take.
I doubt it
" I seriously doubt that anyone old or young in Moultrie is eating dog
food and freezing in the winter because of the cost of Christmas lights.
It really boils down to being cheap and fussy.
" More of the same immature irrational girl-talk? If your lover-boy beat
you on your honeymoon -- as you claim -- then (a) you did not really
know him very well at all or make a wise mature choice before the 'I do'
part, and (b) you should have left with sparks under your heels during
Not a race track
"To all the NASCAR wannabes out there, Second Street Southeast is not a
race track! Please slow down! The limit is 35mph, not 70mph.
Especially late nights on the weekends. A lot of families with kids and
dogs live there.
Just a dime
"Thank you Moultrie Observer for the story about the Christmas lights.
Now that everyone in the city knows that it only costs them 10 cents per
year to have this nice holiday feature, perhaps we can get off this
issue. In essence, having these lights on doesn't keep anyone from
buying their food and medicine. The only thing I know that you can even
buy for a dime anymore is a gum ball.
"The death toll of Americans in Iraq has now risen to more than 400 since
that war started earlier this year. And how many innocent bystanders
were killed? Now we hear that the U.S. government is about ready to turn
this 'democracy' (hee, hee) over to those folks so that occupational
forces can come home.
There is good news and bad news in this. First, our soldiers will not be
sacrificing their lives in that God-forsaken land. That's the good news.
The bad news is, a year after we leave, you won't be able to tell a
dime's worth of difference in turmoil there, despite the fact that we
will have invested more than $90 billion.
Just imagine if we had invested that kind of money here at home.
But if we did that, we would be called bleeding heart liberals.
"I had friends from out of town to ask me when our Christmas lights would
be turned on. They want to bring their grandkids here to see them.
That's great testimony to their value.
"If it only costs us 10 cents a year to burn the Christmas lights, I
think that is a great investment. Consider all the traffic that these
lights generate. Traffic translates to business.
