Grass and bushes are over- are falling in, potholes are in the grass in front of City Hall (and that is in the cracks in the making unnecessary trips up and down the streets. Why was Oak Street paved recently, when there are other streets that are in dire need, such as some on the west side of town? I live on Oak Street, and I am ashamed that it was done, and I had nothing to do with the deci- sion to do it! We spend a fortune each year on the "sod farm" and are getting no return on it. This land could be given away, instead of steadily sinking more money out of MY pocket into it!! Where is the logic here? I am fed up, absolutely sick and tired of the foolishness that is constantly, shoved down the throats of the good people of this town, I am begging, pleading for some decent, hon- est, intelligent, courageous people to run for the seats that will no doubt be up for grabs in the next election. We need someone who has some common sense and the intestinal fortitude to stand up for the right thing no matter what, and can show some concern and respect for the people who matter-the "back- bone" citizens of this town. In the meantime, I hope that the current administration has as much trouble sleeping at night as those of us who are worried about paying our utility bills. By the way-, if you need to fill up your swimming pool, there is a hydrant open at the water department with no meter on it-- help yourself!!
