Over The last several weeks there has been a lot of roadway repair going on, as there was earlier this year in the Norris City area. I have on occasion heard folks complaining about the disruption in their normal driving routines, sometimes too about delays and etc.
I look at it differently. OUR roadways are being repaired. Soon all the “inconveniences” will be done. Many dollars are being spent fixing OUR infrastructure. Many folks are working on these projects; many salaries are being EARNED.
These dollars are not going to the financial black holes of Cook County, east St. Louis, Peoria, Rockford or any other major metropolitan area. These dollars are being spent HERE. Personally, I will sit in traffic and smile. I will tune in the radio to any AM radio talk show.
To whoever it was, Republican or Democrat, who got these projects approved, I say “Thank You!”
