Thafs a bit scar: . I am looldng forward to seeing the farm land again. I am also eager to see all the wild crea~res return to their natural habitat. A few al- ligators have relocated to Percy Creek and the Hamilton Ditch. They seem not to mind all the beats and hmnan intrusion. I have also heard that the gator population in Foster~s Lake has seen a significant increase. Every spring we: encounter the gnats. However, this year the gnats are brutally worse than usual. Big swarms of them engulf the air, and you can actually hear a loud hum- ruing sound flowing through the woods along Percy Creek. They are everywhere. Vanilla flavoring and ~Skin So Soft (from Avon) seem to help ward them off ffyou are coming this way, be prepared for the inva- sion of the gnats. Now. I am going to switch subjects. I am so tired of the rain, but probably not for the masons you think. I am tired of rain dictating church atten- dance. It is not just our church here in FortAdams, but all over. Every time we get a hard rain folks can't get to church. That is pitiful. Last weel~s BOS min- utes revealed that we may get some relief becanse the county has been reinstated for state funding. It also revealed an- other penalty (fine). This one is over $15,000.00. Again because someone failed to do their job correctly. Come on people, this has to step! None of this is ac- ceptable. All this money spent on fines could have gone on fixing somebody's road so that somebody could get to church in the rain! Obh, this county doesn't make any sense! Pay- ing fines out the wazoo, and people can't get to their homes or to church! Really, our local government should be ashamed of the way our tax monies are misused. We the people of this county deserve more!
