Hello from Rutledge

In his opinion

Hello from Rutledge, Alabama. Well a lot has been happening this week. Let’s start with the rumors…. Luverne Hardware is owned by Wayne and Vicky Rolling, no, they did not sell the store. It is now and will remain owned by Luverne natives that care about and support the city of Luverne and Crenshaw County as a whole. Okay, just to recap: the store is still owned by Wayne and Vicky Rolling, still the same great service that you expect and just like before we are always glad to see you, even if it is just stopping by to say hello. I know that I have heard at least four or five different rumors and none of them are true. This entire process has been difficult for everyone involved and we truly appreciate the continued support from everyone. Just know that we are working hard so that we can continue to serve Crenshaw County.

Something I should have done months ago was extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to the volunteer fire departments in this county had it not been for them and the Luverne Police Department this entire outcome would have been much different. We are truly blessed to have such dedicated and un selfish people serving us. We very much appreciate the dedication and professionalism of the fire and police departments in Crenshaw County; they get very little recognition and their job requires true dedication.

Now, onto something else. I think that the world may have finally gone crazy. We have a government that wants to keep giving out stimulus money to everyone. I am kind of curious about where they are getting all this money from. If they have that kind of money laying around perhaps we, the working people, are paying way too much in taxes. On the other hand, and I believe this to be true, they are borrowing the money. Then as everyone has probably figured out we have fools in office in Washington D.C. Of course, I knew that already. All that is happening is we the people of the United States of America are borrowing money from other countries like China. Now what do you think is going to happen when they want the money back and we don’t have it. The only reason I can see for continued stimulus money is buying votes, at least that is what it looks like to me. And see that’s another thing that doesn’t make sense. Georgia revised the voting laws and candidates cannot give out water at the poles because that influences voters, but the democratic party can send money to people and call it a stimulus. Hmmm, kind of makes you wonder doesn’t it?

And just so we don’t forget approximately 3650 days since DeLange Harris’s Murder and 1780 days since Mr. Earl Cosby’s murder and still no justice for the families.
