I really appreciate all the Shriners do, but please give us a break in the Springplace area!!!!!!!!!!

During rush hour traffic it's very dangerous and someone's going to get hurt.

It's 90% of the same people always coming thru!

So true! Theses guys are out there multiple times per week. I have heard this group is from the Rome area. I have seen the Etoni lodge out there as well. It is ridiculous how often they are out there.

I have given in the past but its easy for me to just motor on through now!
just wondering

The money goes to the shrine children's hospital. No child is ever turned away regardless of there parents income. The men that are out with their buckets are not receiving any money they do it for the children!
Please

I can't believe people would complain... it's simple, if you don't want to donate, don't roll down your window.

I feel like I have to pay a toll to get home almost every stinking day. I realize they are doing good also but do they have to be at the 4way crossing everyday? They back the traffic up something terrible. At least they are wearing orange safety vest now. It is a dangerous situation and someone is going to get run over I fear. I really feel bad saying something about it also but almost everyday is getting old. On the days the Shriners are not out there the masons take over.

they do great work, buy its not safe to be out there. what is going to happen when one of them causes a wreck? Do they have insurance to be out in the middle of the road? I am surprised that long arm of the law allows them to be out there. If a homeless person is wanting money they would probably runs them off!..Shriners need to come up with a different way to ask for money. They might want to have a concert or something to entertain all the givers. Just a thought.

I actually called around to see if they had some kind of permit once and got the normal Murray County run around. The Sherrifs office told me the Commish office gave out the permits and then I was told by the commish it comes from the Sherrifs office. In other words the county did not want to touch the subject. When somebody gets hit by a car and killed then and only then will the matter draw the attention of our county.

If Jesus Christ were handing out $100 dollar bills to everyone that passed by someone would complain.
They are on State Highway Property so I assume they must get approval from the State.
If you don't want to give them money just pass them by they won't reach in your car and grab your wallet.
I admire them for working so hard for others not just talking about it and wanting to raise taxes.

If the sign for 225 has the map of georgia on it then it is state road. When 225 goes into Tennessee it changes to 74, so I believe it is a state road.

They should mow yards or do car washes for money instead of begging. This country has plenty of people with their hand out!

i have gave 100's of times. That is my issue. I know they do good work but good grief give us a break in Spring Place. Now come Saturday the Mason's will not want to feel left out and they will out in full force. But not until a couple of more days of the bucket onslaught by the Shriners. It just gets old is all.

Yes, the Shriners have helped countless children and their families over the years. However, if you do a little digging into the "charity" you will find they have received the lowest or worst scores for their financial dealings. Go to www.charitywatch.org and do some reading. The group has billions of dollars and could operate for years without another penny being raised.
There is too much info to try to post on here, so do some looking before you hand out your money.
