Are the Stooges running Midway?

Lake Gale Road needed repair work, and the Midway City Council agreed to have the work performed. So far, so good. Although the city has an agreement with the county to do such work at no additional cost - other than existing payments to the county - Mayor Clemontine Washington had the city hire a contractor without informing the council of a verbal agreement with the vendor.

Recent trip a reminder to take nothing for granted

I have just returned from a memorable trip to Valdosta. I went there to speak to the Rotary Club. The members laughed in all the right places, which not only was memorable, but downright remarkable. What made the trip even more special were two visits I made while there. I dropped by to see my beloved college professor, Dr. Raymond Cook on his 93rd birthday.

Thanks to those who worked on, supported and voted for T-SPLOST

Editor, As the voters of Liberty County are aware, the T-SPLOST did not pass in many regions of the state, including the Coastal Region (Region 12).

Not passing in Region 12 was a great disappointment; however, all is not lost in the efforts to approve the TIA project list for this region. Each of the 10 counties in the Coastal Region has identified transportation-improvement projects that are important to their needs.

Second chance to support law enforcement

As a cop's daughter, I'm more supporting of police officers than most. I appreciate the work they do for the community and individuals. That's probably why I think National Night Out is such a great idea.
