In Reagan’s words
“Are great numbers of our unemployed really victims of the illegal invasion, or are those illegal tourists actually doing work our people won’t do? One thing is certain in this hungry world: No regulation or law should be allowed if it results in crops rotting in the fields for lack of harvesters.”
Ronald Reagan, president of the United States of America, radio address, November 1977.

Road to nowhere
The proposed development of the old Decatur Road will require a bridge be rebuilt and a substantial amount of preparation over rugged terrain for the road to be developed. No doubt, at a great cost to the taxpayers.
Besides the expense of completing the project it will cause additional traffic problems on an already congested Highway 72 in front of the Walmart store and shopping center.
There is already adequate excess to the 20 acres of property to be developed from Highway 31 and Sanderfer Road. Some improvements of Jamal Street at Highway 72 would be less expensive and would not cause additional traffic problems on Highway 72.
If the city has all this money to spend on road projects, I can show them much higher priority projects that are in bad need of repair.
