Well, I hope our city leaders are satisfied. The vines have taken over our historic swinging bridge, so now no one can see it even exists.

It seems as if no one in our city or county administration cares anything about trying to get any new jobs in here or not, so long as they can get paid and socialize with their fishing, hunting, golfing, gambling, drinking buddies. 

The same thing goes for some of our pastors who esteem one brother over another.

I hear Martin County has a couple things going on there, they’re kayaking at Elkhorn City. If our city/county leaders are doing anything other than drawing a paycheck, it doesn’t show.
