Rant and Raves for June 1

The traffic signals in Tifton need some work. Why do some left turn arrows come on when there are no cars waiting to turn (ex: Central and  2nd Avenue)? Why do some signals have left turn arrows that aren't used? Why do some signals not have left turn arrows at very busy intersections (ex: 2nd Avenue and Main Street)? Why do some signals stay green for a long time even if no traffic is going through the signal and you are stuck on the red side? Why do other signals turn as soon as a car drives up on the red side? Why do some signals just change when there is no car to trip the signal? Waiting at a signal is frustrating and wastes gas.

Just to set the record straight, the ROTC trip wasn't cancelled by the BOE…it was cancelled by ROTC leadership.

This is a huge rave for Publix...their employees never cease to amaze me! I needed a deli tray on very short notice and when I called, the young man who took the order was so pleasant. I was a little embarrassed to be calling a few hours before I needed the tray but he assured me that it would be no problem and even asked when I wanted to pick it up! Publix is the best thing that has ever happened to Tifton! I will forever be a faithful shopper!

The traffic signals in the city of Tifton operate horribly. They change when no traffic is present and cause you to start and stop at every block.

To the person who criticized GM, I have always purchased a GM car or truck and have never had any trouble. I will do my best to buy anything that is built in America. Most foreign cars and trucks come to this country on ships and may be well built, but the bulk of the money goes back to these countries. American cars will last as long as any foreign car and they made in America.

Had a great time at the library summer reading party at the bowling alley. Miss Tina and the other staff did a wonderful job. Everyone was smiling and laughing. It was like one big family outing. Looking forward to the rest of her programs this summer.

According to The Gazette, police reports include incidents where a lot of women have their purses stolen when their cars are broken into. There is a simple way to avoid that, you know.
