Rants & Raves - May 23


What a mess the city or county made. I never know which, when they recently mowed the roadside on Davis Road, leading to ABAC. You pick up paper first, then mow. You got it? Pick-up first, then mow. I've lived here 40 years and they have never gotten it straight. If you can't remember that then just let the grass grow. It looks much better. If young people would show more responsibility we wouldn't have this problem. Most of the trash is from fast food establishments and you know who goes there.
I'm ranting about the city of Tifton's Land Development Code. Section 1.04.02 says that they are trying to prevent "urban sprawl" which sounds like a good thing. However, the definition of urban sprawl is “a situation in which large stores, groups of houses, etc., are built in an area around a city that formerly had few people living in it.” This is what we need! We need more houses, we need more stores, we need more factories. In short, we need urban sprawl. Change the code to promote growth.
I wish they would repave the road on 20th Street because it is a major accident waiting to happen even if you are doing the speed limit. They repaved 41 why can’t they do the same for 20th Street. If i get into an accident because of a tire blowout for that road I am suing. 
We have found our dog that went missing in the Lake Larry/Eldorado area! We would like to thank all those that were kind enough to help in our search for our sweet dog, The Tiftarea Humane Society and The Tifton Gazette for running it in the Rants & Raves. It's nice to know there are so many nice people out there in the world. Thank you again!
