  • LETTER: Thankful for water

    We have waited several years for water on Akins Road. July 2008 was the magic time. All papers filed, signed and the digging began. We were so thankful.

    There was one of our city commissioners that checked, called, came and stayed very involved: Lynda Huckleberry. She was not to gain politically as we do not vote for city commissioners. Ms. Lynda was “just doing her job.”

    If I could vote, needless to say, yes, Ms. Lynda, you would have our vote on Akens Road.

    We wish to express our gratitude to the one who cares about Spencer County.
