Billy Joe Fudge: Making crosswalks safer

Doesn't want to see anyone else hurt or killed on our Downtown Square. Calls on two of Adair County's forward looking leaders to address and correct the problems

By Billy Joe Fudge

I would like to restate a couple of my earlier statements:

- A. I do not want to ever see anyone else hurt or killed on our Downtown Square.
- B. If Greenwood mall had the uncontrolled traffic of Highway 61 and Highway 55 running through it as it does in Downtown Columbia, it would be bankrupt within a year.
With just a little tweaking we can avoid injuries, prevent deaths and begin a process which will create a more business and people friendly environment in our Downtown.

I personally watched a lady knocked down and have the life crushed out of her on the Burkesville Street crosswalk. I do not want to ever have to witness that again!

I call upon our two forward looking local leaders, Mayor Curtis Hardwick and Judge Michael Lee Stephens to help our community and our fellow citizens to address and correct this problem.
