Keep in mind that people who live in the gated communities are the same as everyone else. They need to get off the pedestal and look to God. This is not a judgment of your soul; this is an observation of your actions.
The people who bash Obama are nothing but political hacks that put politics before God.
The person responsible for the lighting on White Pond and Whiskey Road needs to take care of things. It’s been out for a month and a half. Something needs to identify that corner.

I see where a man was sentenced to life without parole for a double slaying including a 9-year-old child. I also see he is entitled to mental counseling at the tax payers expense. Are we all nuts? He’s in for life. Do we want him to relate better to his fellow convicts? Let him rot in there, and lets stop this liberal mollycoddling in our prisons.
The splash pad is a nice water park for the children. However, children are slipping and falling on the concrete areas, by the picnic tables and inside the changing rooms, due to the smooth surface of the concrete. Our children have fallen and hit their heads a few times, and we do not plan to go back anytime soon due to the dangers. I feel there should be rubber mats or groves placed into the concrete so children can walk and play safely throughout the park.
To the TalkBacks regarding paying for other people’s abortion meds: The morning after pill does not function as an abortion pill but facts obviously don’t matter.
