Re-striping streets would enhance city
Mayor Marks, suggest you take a drive on North Jefferson and Forrest Streets. Take note of the potholes and uneven pavement. Either are pretty rough drives. Also, notice that the striping is almost invisible on these and, for that matter, all Athens streets.
Re-striping streets would greatly enhance the appearance of Athens and the $500,000 you are so generously giving away could be used for the above projects and even put some people to work, at least temporarily.
Upset over rules for letters
I seem to be slightly confused about the current rules regarding Letters to the Editor, also the reason why! Can it be a way of preventing any concerns of the voting public from expressing their opinions about any political party that may be trying to control the vote?
I also noticed that on 2/23/14 a lone Letter to the Editor had about 443 words, which, in my opinion should not have been printed as it had over twice as many words that are supposed to be allowed. I also noticed that when you changed the rules many columnists started popping up with mostly negative comments about the current administration in Washington.
Now, since I will not be allowed my usual 400 words, can I become a columnist in order to express my opinion about a political party that seems to be trying to destroy the middle class in this once great country?
I also believe that the voting citizens should control the vote, not corporations or the super rich.
Take care; the time is coming when all will face judgment. It might help to read Psalms 10: 2-7.
Hopefully, letters will revert back to the original format.
