State and City need to address Doug Beard's valid concerns

Comments re article 44140 Would like to see a change in road classification State to City

Ann Curtis writes:
Dear Ed, I'm sure you remember, as I do, when Lowe's Lane was not much more than a muddy path that ran from Jamestown Street back to Mr. John D. Lowe's barn. How it has metamorphosed into a state road over the years is probably more by chance than by design. I hope the State will take a look at this street and address Doug Beard's very valid concerns. Ann Heskamp Curtis
Thanks, Ann Heskamp Curtis. I do remember. And I agree 100%. In so many ways, our town has been taken away from us. It didn't have to be. Maybe it will happen. I've got more hopes now than ever that the Mayor and City Council are actually addressing concerns of the residents of the town than ever. We've endured unnecessary speeding, noise/disturbances of the peace, noise, unnecessary run-off and flooding, for too long. No doubt Lowe's Lane speeding needs to be stopped. One thing I do know, though, is that we'll need unity and attendance at City Council meetings to get anything done. - Ed Waggener

GWS Lexicon: New nominee word arrives just Wahlago

By Sharon Whitehurst

Perhaps you or your readers can help us "in-comers" with a fine point of interpretation.

Daughter G. came back from Walmart yesterday with a phrase that is new to us.

"Wahlago": spoken as one word. From the context she gathers it translates in our "from away" speak as "awhile ago."

This would seem a useful remark to accompany the scratching of one's head in a thoughtful manner when appealed to for recollection of a past happening. While not referring to ancient history, there's a suggestion that an event which happend wahlago requires a judicious review before a declaration of facts can be made.

I'm not good at phonetic spelling and would appreciate a better rendition of the phrase. I would pronounce "awhile" with a long "I" and the "H" and "L" would definitely be heard. -Sharon Whitehurst

Councillor Parson clarifies Bill Bailey blue lights position

June Parson writes:
Ed, I did not make a motion to remove the blue lights from Bill Bailey's car. I brought up for discussion the removal of the blue lights from the Code Enforcement Officer's vehicle, as I do not consider this position to be an emergency position and according to the KRS non emergency vehicles are prohibited from running with blue lights. However, as you also heard, our legal council says it is because he does traffic control and escorts. I did make a motion to install speed bumps on Bowen and Page Street in response to a petition that had previously been submitted, that died for lack of a second.

I know these discussions may seem minor, but I do appreciate your positive coverage of the council meetings. -June

A report from ground zero: Mount Hope, Alabama

"Jim" writes: Tonight, I finally heard from my cousin Chris, who lives in northwest Alabama near Mount Hope, a community in Lawrence County. There are 14 confirmed deaths in Lawrence County (seven in Mount Hope alone), several serious injuries, and untold property damage.

Chris' letter (forwarded to CM with his permission for publication) says more than any news report could::

Letter from "Jim's" cousin Chris, Mount Hope, AL

Our family is fine but the community of Mount Hope where we live is absolutely devastated. The tornado, which has been rated as an EF-5, hit about two miles from us. Not sure how much news you've followed, but it is the same one that hit Smithville, Miss and Hackleburg and Phil Campbell, Alabama. It hit Mount Hope about 10 minutes after Phil Campbell.
