We alll know the biggest thing to happen in Houston County in decades is the new jail. I have never seen so many tax dollars and effort put forward as I have seen for the new jail.

Sometime ago, I approached some of our local official about getting these "criminals" to earn theri keep by doing community service projects around the county. I called and asked for help with some litter pick-ups we were doing.
I got the usual shuffle around and they took my number. I could tell by th etone it was going nowhere but I had to try.

What th ehell is wrong with our officials for placing the burden of this prison on the "few working" tax payers and not trying to give back anything positive.

You read about the Sheriff from Arizona that makes his convicts work. Why don't we do something to become a model community! Imagine, prisoners cleaning the streets, filling potholes, planting flowers, working....

Instead it is another burden for this poor county.

The stimulus plan could have been written by our local leaders huh?

It seems to work in all levels of Government.

Too late ..it's a done deal.Atleast they got those ole eyesores torn down on S.4th and they wont have too far to haul the perp"s to jail and I guess I can't fault local leaders for getting all they can get when they can
