Did anybody else notice in the recent picture of our new courthouse the condition of the street in front of it? What a shame that we will have such a beautiful new courthouse, yet shabby streets to get there.

So I drove around downtown to see if it was just that one street. No, I am afraid there are numerous streets that look like the picture or are even worse!

What does that say about our town? What does that say to our town leaders? Where is the civic pride?

Can some one explain why our town looks this way?
