May 27,2018 From Beaver Creek Dear Mr. Editor: Lots of years back I done heard about a woman up in New York what burnt her house down. She say she done it cause it wuz jest easier to burn it than it wuz to clean it. That sounded crazy to me, but sometimes when I goes to cleaning mine, I can sort of sympa- thize with her. Last week I saw where this fella in Baton Rouge done tried to burn down a hornets' nest what wuz at- tached to his apartment, and he done caught his apartment building on fire. He not only got rid of the hornet nest but also put some of his tenants out of a place to stay at. Now, Mama done tole me it ain't nice to say someone is dumb or stu- pid, so I shore ain't goin' to say that bout him, but I is goin' to say that apartment owner shore done made a bad choice. Sometimes it most probably is the best thing to jest leave varmints and stinging insects alone. Yours truly, Aunt Blabby PLEASE DON'T ,~. * * Keep Wilkinson County clean!

Adams & Lake Mary by Rhonda Quirk We have been driving in to our house for a little over a week, but it is predicted that next week Jackson Point Road will be under water, again. The water should be gone in about 10 days. In the meantime, I have been taking advan- tage of being able to travel the road. It is so much easi- er to drive supplies right up to the back porch than hav- ing to haul them in by boat. I am telling you, lugging ev- erything onto a boat, then unloading it on the pier and dragging it up the stairs is quite a work out! Soon, the water will be gone for good and things will be back to normal. The high water is actually a phenomenal event to ex- perience. A few weeks ago, I could walk out on the front porch and catch a catfish. Water as far as you could see. The spring winds blow- ing the waves to and fro. The sound of the waves slapping under the house. Oh! There were so many birds resting in the trees along the levee and their songs filled the air. Animals of every sort scrambling about the once submerged levee in search of dry ground. The water is now gone. Many of the birds and animals followed the water as it crept back to Mississippi River. The farm land is once again lush and green. It is indeed a beauti- ful transformation in only a few weeks. It was great to see folks returning to Lake Mary for Memorial Weekend. It wasn't as busy as it has been in the past, but the road situation deters lots of folks. However, private individuals did the best they could to patch up Lake Mary Road and make it passable. Jackson Point Road was also made pass- able by private individuals. So the story goes on. Every- body pays taxes, everybody works on the county roads, and I reckon until we have the good sense to realize this is not acceptable, it will stay that way. People, remember all this the next election. Last election, noth- ing changed from the previ- ous term and look around we are in a huge mess. Any- way, I won't keep on fussing: You ought to know change is the only hope we have to improve our situation. Last week, I told you about the willow trees and how easily they root. Well, every little twig that fell during this high water must have taken root in Fort Ad- ams. All of the drainage ditches that were cleaned out a few years ago are full of little willow sprouts. Now if the sprouts are cleaned out now while they are small and manageable, it would aide in drainage problems. However, if they are not and they mature as they did in the past, it will take bigger more powerful equipment to clean out the ditches. Lefs see what happens!
