Getting Your Two Cents Worth in Colbert County

In approximately 18 months, the two-cent gasoline tax designated for bond payment on the Marriott/Jones Golf Courses project will be history. That's at least history for Colbert County. In Lauderdale it will then begin to pay for a bond issue on the proposed ag center.

You have a truck with a 50-gallon tank and drive through Colbert at least once a week, where do you fill up? Unless you simply wish to donate to the ag center project or you're religiously serious about avoiding Colbert retail due to that county's stance on the new RegionalCare hospital, the answer is easy. This is not a criticism of the ag center which we support, but an observation. 


We've received several comments on the proposed Inspiration Landing project; yet none of them has addressed the issue of the Montgomery Avenue office closing. We'll be publishing the comments soon, but still hope for more info on whatever precipitated the closure.


The Waffle House low health score reminded us of an old joke: 

Where do old waitresses go when they die?

They don't die; they go to work at Waffle House.
