In case you missed it, last week a proposal to place a few trees on Noble Street slipped past by the usual 3-2 vote.
The two against were (surprise!) Ben Little and Herbert Palmore.
Against trees? . . . come on, man!
What a circus at our City Hall . . . a very bad one.
It is obvious others are not.
For example, when you can hire Randy Owens (Alabama), George Jones, Lorrie Morgan and Trace Adkins to do commercials, you better have a fat wallet.
All are major country stars and, as such, they’re used to fat bank accounts.
The senator who brought that up was talking of the chronically ill.
That’s scary . . .
Six months later, watching TV, he again hears a “tap-tap-tap” at the door. Opening the door, he sees the same snail.
Looking up, the snail says, “What was that all about?”
If you didn’t get it, try again.
AND WHILE we’re in the neighborhood, it’s worth noting that a nice lady by the name of Nellie Teal will be 100 Saturday.
Mrs. Teal is at Golden Living in Oxford and isn’t doing very well, but the lady has had a run . . .
A past president of the SGA, Bethany is headed for Gadsden State on a Show Choir Scholarship and plans a major in music.
At JCA, she participates in the journalism/yearbook, choir and is on the drama team
There’s more for a busy young lady who has been a varsity cheerleader for four years, is current head, and holds letters in volleyball, basketball and softball.
“Bethany has been a big part of JCA since she was four years old,” says Dr. Tommy Miller, principal. “She has a great singing voice, has been a blessing to all of JCA and we will really miss her.”
Proud parents are Ron and Tammy Bridges, Sugar Valley Road, Wellington.
Take a bow, young lady . . .
