Grandparent;
This city cannot be a place to retire or prosper because it is not a "community" Maybe that is why people on this website are so negative about this city and the people that inhabit it. Before using the word "community" understand what it is. While researching that, the word civility requires attention also.

I know what both mean, so I'm not sure who you think should look up the terms.

Sunshine, sometimes I wonder what planet you live on! The mayor cannot schedule anything for the schools. The city mayor has nothing to do with the schools. Radon testing would have to be requested by the Board of Education and/or its director. If kits are free, then why don't the homeowners take responsibility for testing their own homes.
How can anyone prepare for a "monstrous tornado"? All you can do is have codes for buildings that could withstand a tornado and who could afford that?
She has no control over leaking of toxic waste! Monitoring of the dump (I assume that is what you are referring to) must be done by the state.
Large trees? What about the property owner deciding if he wants his trees trimmed.
She needs to spend her time working on a money saving budget with the city manager and councilmen. She needs to work with the industrial recruiter on getting new business/industry brought to this town. She needs to work on creating an image of a community that wants to prosper and not an image of a retirement community.
She needs to let you run her job and her be your shadow.You seem to address every thing anybody says and disect their words to what you think should be authoritative replies.Some of us went to school too.
There is a lot of feelings toward cemeteries.It is holy ground and not just a place to mow like a yard.It need tender loving care, respect for those placed in the ground sites, families bought and paid for.
There is personal dignity which not one iota has been shown for families.This council is a great big JOKE, on Lewisburg.Getting in a big mess for the group to wash their hands and walk away and leave for others.
Where is the financial report of the cemeteries that this county/ city own??
When does the people not deserve an accounting of all money in this county and city government.
There is a no respect for the citizens.No board tries to use wisdom as the county /city used to 20 years ago.We are 20 years behind the times.We are ridiculed in other counties.
For 20 years this county has been slipping away.Starting with the loss of ICP.Mary Ann Neil said they are not voting the way the people want.How right she was.No wonder others resign ,leave ,move on to new things.

NOTHING changes until people speak up.
We are known as the drug capitol fo middle Tennessee.
We are tops in unemployment.We only are able to recruit small working companies and make it sound as if we are going to get a load of jobs which turns out to be few.We cannot draw a nice name francised restaurant.
Our school leaders only cut each other ,stab each other, don't support the very one they chose to elevsate to leadership only to ridicule him.A man who can retire anyday leaving them without again.
And we don't even have a hospital that people trust enough to go to.A small medical facility that survives on litte emergencies.We can't attract any thing gainful.AJ Medical was a credit to this county.Never promoted in any way.
We have a right to an accounting.
God help us all in this county.We need you mow.

This post sounds like you have good ideas....go back to your post (#12) and read it with a critical eye and you'll see why I asked if you live on another planet. In that post you suggested many things for the mayor to do that she simply doesn't have the power/authority to do.

Sorry, if I owe you an apology, you have it.
We really are slipping thru the cracks a little more every week.I am so disappointed for the people who had to swallow the big pill over the cemetery.No one should take liberty to remove other people's personal possessions to a city owned property.Need a class action suit.Pay every person who had a memorial item removed across town..
It infuriates people to get over into their affairs under the cover of RULES ENFORCED.I was for McRady butI am now sure turned off.Turned off to both of them by their deeds.The statues standing on TV and front page news is heart breaking for family to have to accept.By leaders we voted in in good faith.
My parents are there at Lone Oak and I have seen the shed all junked up . But the house should be cemetery property used for such problems.
Who cares about making the hwy to Mooresville a parkway when the city looks so bad,.She is mayor of the city not the hwy.
Golf courses cost money.
You never hear about a problem there.We pay the upkeep and say nothing.
The cemetery could be a clean -up project for all the young people on community service.Assign one area to make look nice,give them a day off too .There is not a thing wrong with inmates working for reward.They probably would like the fresh air and sunshine..
The cemeteries, all of a sudden, seem to be major problems to keep up.
Purple hearts has nothing to do with it.Somebody took it upon themself to zero in on all the little things people loved so much. I would never in this world put in another word for not even one council member.
I am not involved but THIS is disgusting to our people who loved the cemetery so much to take trinkets there and leave love gifts.
If I want to put a shepherd's hook with a chime on it,it's my business .And no one needs tO cut any body's little efforts to show care.
We don't all like nice EXPENSIVE floral arrangements in vases.Some of us want to see the little solar lights.Who do they hurt?
If you put a mouse outfit on some people and sent them there to "clean up " there would be some who would jump right in behind them.
So in hopes for a whole new council .New ways of working together.Remember at election times who said what.GIve new people a chanceGet team workers.

Go to the Ellington Parkway left side comvenience store ,see vacant stores junked up,parking never cleaned..Go out West Commerce,see all the furniture moved outside to sell,go out East Commerce,See Taz ,all furniture out side to sell.
Go in Indian stores,see all girlie magazines down low enough for little kids to see,machines to play.GO to Indian store on Nashville Hwy,see all the sex enhancement and all the advertisements on packs in front view of every child,teen that enters to pay.Glass case is a display case at the counter.But the suggestion for how it can enhance males is awesome. Go to Shopper ,see Boogie Bungelow ads for girlie acts.
See all the trash cans and trash out for days,in view,See all the businesses gone on .See the paper,on front page,giving full report of a man having pay garnished, See all the rates go up on utility boards,see how high deposits are just to get power. The little country town is gone.

I remember all of us teen agers walking from Connelly ,school out,going to Alfords for a coke,or to the Duck Inn to see Mrs.Mac, we called her,and how fresh the air was and how bright the sunshine was on a spring day.
Hearing Johnny McKay ,the drummer ,playing on the steps the big drums calling all us natives to alert us of football game or rally.How much we enjoyed pep rallies out on the block bleachers at Connelly.Where did the concrete bleachers go?
I temember riding my bike to Dick Davis grocery just to get a fudge popsicle.Melting before I could ride and eat it all.I remember the big Christmas bulbs on a REAL Christmas tree with not many things under it but also bubbling light sure did draw us to just look at the tree.We cut that tree and what a joy when we were told it was time to go get it too.
The old party line phone with 8 people to listen in.And mother not letting us on the family phone except sometimes on Saturday to line up Show time to see Roy Rogers.Or Gone with The Wind.
Also sleeping on a feather bed that made us feel safe and secure at home.Never allowed to sleep away on someone's sofa."Couch visiting" as it is called.Family time with TV. Country food and how clean our air was,how bright our day was with bright clear sunshine.Where did our clean environment go???

Wouldn't it be nice if we still lived in such simple times? But you know, I'm sure there were problems within our government even then.

Just drive down 1 St. Avenue
Second Avenue
5Th Avenue the Old Connely School just sitting there falling apart.
Most any Street closed to the Square and sees the empty buildings falling apart or empty lots this Town is dead drive around the square look at the last Mayor's still empty building lot several buildings that are dangerous some should be condemned most beyond repair, and need tore down.
Then it seems are the Mayor and City Council spending wasting time complaining about the Grave Yards?
So real so right.Old Brown's hospital just as bad as old red house.Ought to fine people for throwing out on street any and everything for our trash trucks to pick up axtra.It isn't fair to the men.Who ever does that and whoever owns places like old red house should be fined every day it is in such a public view.

Marshall County needs a real clean up the environment day.And no pills should be sold by Indian Stores nor girlie mags out in open view.
Especially people who can hardly speak your language,couldn't give info much on store robbery.
They are pushing sex enhancers.Not an adult toy store.It's a family store.
