Russ 1 year, 7 months ago on Naming U.S. 19 for Sutton a fitting honor

Probably the same thing that happened when the Albany City Commission took the initiative to rename Jefferson St years ago. I believe that was eventually put to rest due to the fact Jefferson St. was also a state highway, and therefore could not be changed just because the City thought it should be. Now, honorary signage on a US highway is a bit different, but the basic concept is the same. The only initiative Lee County should take is what I think they are doing now...petitioning the proper powers-that-be to have the signage included. That would be honoring the fallen Marine in a proper way, as that is following the rule of law, one of the many great things about this nation that he proudly served to protect.

Makes it sound like citizens making "demands" is a bad thing. I guess that demands are OK when it's for welfare.

More assonance than alliteration. Mostly mumbling middle-of-the-road milquetoast mush-minded thinking here.

Ask Hoodie, the Coon Hunt Wizard. He has a magic crystal ball that foretells how well events will do...never mind that the UKC event started pretty small, too, over 20 years ago. I think the Exchange Club will do just fine, despite his proclamations.

Here's some info on USPS District Coordinator Ryles, simple bing search:

While she may "be accustomed" to town hall meetings, she doesn't appear to like them, either, according to this story.
