Adams & Lake Mary by Rhonda Quirk Election time is near, and I want to encourage folks to get out and vote. I hear lots of folks complain about the poor financial state that our county is in, but they don't vote. Some people feel that their vote doesn't count. The only way your vote doesn't count is if you don't vote. I am not going to harp this week on our piti- ful roads and all the potential revenue the county is losing. I think I have well addressed that situation. The cool autumn tempera- tures are bringing folks back to The Far Corner. Deer hunt- ers, duck hunters and fisher- men are back preparing for the winter. Little by little, we are seeing an increase in our weekend population. I have met many new camp owners, however, some folks are choos- ing to rent instead of purchas- ing the property because andcarried by unanimous vote, the Board voted to go in Executive Session to discuss personnel matters.

I ca- blame them, but we need fch,., that chose our area to remain here. Many of the new com- ers really enjoyed last week's festival. Folks tend to fall in love with our charming little town. Sometimes, I believe as citizens of Wilkinson County, we tend to overlook many of the advantages of living in the country. Many people wait until they reach Woodville to shop because they feel like they get courteous and quick service. I love to hear positive things about our count3" and The Far Corner. However, we are lacking a critical neces- sity. A nice restaurmlt that is open on Friday night, Sat- urday night and Sundays. I am hoping someone will read this column and realize the true need for such a service. For instance, I met a couple this weekend from Columbia. They had just recently pur- chased a camp and were here celebrating their 34th Amfi- versary and were inquiring about a nice, close restaurant. They were both surprised and disappointed to find out there isn't one. This happens a lot. Many times folks come here to celebrate special occasions at their camp with family and friends, but don't want the hassle of cooking for every- one all weekend. Sundays are busy for folks preparing to re- turn home and they too are looking for a quick bite before their journey. I know there are risks involved when it comes to our area. The almighty Mis- sissippi River is one, but folks love to ride down here just to watch her ~e. There ar ways to use her devastatio~ to your advantage.
