  • What we think: We have a generally worthless assembly

    Are you as sick as we are about these games that are played in Frankfort?

    Are you sick of politics overpowering decision-making? Are you with us and think the name of our legislative branch should be changed to the “Generally Worthless Assembly?”

    Because that’s what we have had for the past two months: a pretty – and petty – worthless assembly of lawmakers who could not do their jobs because they were being wagged by the political dogs.

  • Sometimes we can be green about life on a few acres

    A sympathy card is in the mail to Lisa Douglas.

    You may remember her, the wife of attorney Oliver Wendell Douglas, who was pulled against her will from her apartment on Park Avenue in New York City and moved to a farm in the middle of somewhere so her husband could pursue his true passion of farming.

    Lisa wasn’t happy about that decision, because the new digs were closer to henhouse than penthouse, if you get my drift. But she adapted.

    Mall’s wetlands impact

     

    This is not a letter in protest to the proposed outlet mall development in Simpsonville. But as I read the article (“Planned outlet mall starts approval bid,” April 6), I wondered about the Horizon Group's request to fill in the 6.5-acre pond and surrounding wetlands. Where will all that existing water, drainage capability and buffering potential go, so that neighboring properties are not negatively impacted?

  • Give me a little hair, long beautiful hair

    My son walked into the kitchen the other day, dressed for an evening event, and asked me proudly, “Do you like how I have my hair organized?”

    Although he is gifted in language arts, he didn’t quite understand why I immediately laughed, thinking perhaps that his “organization” wasn’t all that great.

    Truth is, he has extremely soft, thick hair – think of something that you would use to brush clean a fine fabric or even your own hair – and it had grown beyond its “organizational” best.

  • We congratulate: Martinrea’s rebound

    Those employment figures at Martinrea Heavy Stamping are surely something to brag about. Adding 150 jobs to a hanging-by-a-thread workforce deserves applause from all of us.

    Shelby County Fiscal Court certainly offered its good wishes last week, and we join the magistrates in saying thank you to the company and to Ford Motor Company for its continuing and growing commitment to Shelby County.
