“To oppose corruption in government is the highest obligation of patriotism.”

Ugh..I believe the September 6 public hearing on zoning changes is for homes on the south side of Philips Lane and Miller that are zoned General Business instead of residential. This has been a recurring problem in the City. Also changing some property on west street from General Business to Central Business District that corrects problems with the zoning.

If a home was destroyed say by fire or storms, it could not be rebuilt as the property is zoned General Business. Changing to Residential allows a rebuild to occur or even get a building permit.

This isn't the new overall zoning ordinance, yet.

JB wanted to say thank you for posting the information on the relief drive the Denning boys are heading up (Ray and Yancy) along with Dave Ferguson.

Regarding clothing they DON'T need random used clothing. They DO need new underwear all sizes, both genders, adult & child and all sorts of baby clothes- new or used but in good condition.

Special recognition to some of the people working hard to help-- including Jeanine & Bobby Little who head up the diaper-baby supply drive. If you see Jeanine or Bobby tell them we need lots of baby cloths and more diapers. Gina at city hall who brought in bandaids, first-aid supplies and items needed for those who work in mud & clean up. David Garwood for his patience & help getting the first day organized. As well as Melinda Klopp (candidate for treasurer)& Commissioner Schafer, both braved the heat to help unload & sort yesterdays many donations. Also thanks to David Bramer (candidate for county commissioner) for his work with Southwestern Honor Society and collecting school supplies. If your organization is collecting please email so I can pass along that someone is already working on certain items.

TODAYS WISH LIST: Laundry detergent, feminine hygiene products, rubber gloves, work gloves, TRASH BAGS, used or new totes. Please visit the facebook page Helping Madison help Louisiana and check out the updated lists and follow our community's progress. Thanks again JB - you do a great service for us all. Have a good day- Tami

Between the county's horrible EMA response and Commissioner Cash's efforts to continue and grow all the problems with dispatch it seems to me Jefferson County is a pretty dangerous place to live. I'm voting anti-Cash that's for sure.

Col Bogey, the city is doing the never-to-be-used Hatcher Hill trail while the county maintains the rural roads. Madison has tax dollars to waste while the county is dollar poor. Then the city has the gall to demand county money for city parks while not paying a dime for the county park at.jpg. Ditto with the midcor scam.

Speaking of floods and wind damage, I wonder if anyone recvd help or funds from the local or federal gov. when we had our flooded Walnut St. and wind damage.
I had trees blown over on the roof, flooded basement and roof damage.
I called Mr. Bell and he took some info but told me to go online and fill out a report. So I did as he said and never did hear a word from the city or anyone else.
