As the holiday season quickly approaches we all know things will be different this year for everyone. I am, however, making a special request to everyone to reach out to our local veterans.
I’d like to personally give a huge thank you to the many people who made the inaugural Patriot Day/America 250 Kickoff a great success last Friday. We had people from as far away as Tuscaloosa, Montgomery and Mobile attend the event.
Tuesday the 14th I went to the drugstore and saw a circus was set up which angered me with this virus back on the rise. When I got home I called the mayor’s office.
The impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on all of our lives is clear. Even as some states begin to recover or even reopen, many of us are still worried for the health and well being of our families, friends, and colleagues.
To the Citizens of Coffee County,
The right to vote is one of the most fundamental liberties we enjoy as Americans. It is also one of our greatest civic responsibilities.
A shelter in place was ordered by Gov. Kay Ivey Friday, April 3 effective Saturday, April 4 at 5 p.m. Everyone needs to follow this order. The only way to fight COVID-19 is to isolate ourselves to stop the spread.
I’m writing today with an update on Medical Center Enterprise’s preparation for the presence of COVID-19 in Enterprise. Our executive and department leaders are monitoring local, state and federal guidance as it is updated in response to the ever-evolving situation.
Once again the merchants and our neighbors doing business in the Wiregrass have demonstrated their support and generosity through donations to the Luncheon Pilot Club’s annual fund raiser, Radio Day. We certainly appreciate this support. All funds raised will be used to fund local area service projects.
Just a brief note about how the recent session of the Alabama Legislature, Republican controlled in both the House and the Senate, screwed retired teachers.
Once again the merchants and our neighbors doing business in the Wiregrass have shown their generosity and support for the Luncheon Pilot Club of Enterprise’s annual fund raiser, Radio Day.
I would like to start by thanking you for holding an open forum to discuss raising the Business License tax. As often happens, we may speak at such an event and then wished we had said other things afterwards. This is my attempt to address some of the afterthoughts.
Sadly, traffic on County Road 702 has returned to the normal no-speed-control, go-as-fast-as-you-please pace – 60 mph to 80 mph – with the knowledge that there will be no consequences from any of the three law enforcement agencies charged with controlling traffic on that road.
On behalf of Seminole County Elementary School, I would like to thank Enterprise City Schools for allowing 12 of your staff members to travel to Seminole County Wednesday, Oct. 31, to assist our school in recovery efforts from Hurricane Michael.
The Coffee County Emergency Management Agency would like to thank everyone for their response as well as listening for and paying attention to our warnings before and during Hurricane Michael. Your preparation makes our recovery much smoother.
To the Administration of Enterprise High School—
I am writing in hopes that EHS will finally introduce conversation surrounding student mental health to ensure a fulfilling high school experience and to eliminate stigmatization of adolescent suicide.
Two steps forward and three steps back-that is where we are at with the city’s “vision” of recycling. Their minds were made up even before this was introduced to the public.
Once again it appears that the almighty dollar has claimed another victim–Mother Earth! In our own little way we were doing what we could, at least trying, to save our planet. 0.25 percent ofg something is better than nothing. Now, thanks to our ever diligent, money worshipping city council we won’t even have that 0.25 percent.
Thank you (Enterprise City Council) for conducting the public meeting to inform citizens of Enterprise’s recycling status, and giving citizens an opportunity to ask questions and provide their input.
The town hall meeting last week was both educational and disheartening. Despite repeated assurances, it is obvious the city council is ready to terminate the recycling program.
Doing what is right is the bottom line. If everything is done just to make money, we have failed. Recycling does take care of part of the environment. It is the responsible thing to do.
As many of you know, I responded to a wreck on Monday morning (June 18). I haven’t said a lot about the accident (on AL-167) and I haven’t posted anything because I didn’t know what to say, and I still really don’t.
I have been doing some reading and research on the recycling issue, and found some surprising facts. One is that the waste management guy in your recent story was telling the truth on the failing economics of recycling some items.
I’d like to thank you for your article regarding recycling in Enterprise. I have long heard rumors that the recycle trash was not being recycled but I didn’t realize it was true and to the extent that it is.
On April 24, I attended the Enterprise City Schools board meeting where they discussed the confusion on why kids outside the Enterprise City Limits should pay a tuition to go to Enterprise City Schools.
The national-network of Community Action Agencies, local agencies that respond to community needs in 99 percent of the counties in the United States, have a message for President Trump after the release of his latest Executive Order calling for welfare reform. That message: Come see about us.
On Saturday, Nov. 4, pilots from the Experimental Aircraft Association cranked up their engines at Enterprise Municipal Airport and gave free aircraft rides to 192 eager Wiregrass youngsters from as far away as Prattville.
We had another mass shooting yesterday in Texas, but what I hear from the vast majority of our elected officials is, “OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH THE VICTIMS AND THEIR FAMILIES.”
Each Thanksgiving, we gather together to give thanks for our families and the good things in life. For thousands of children in foster care, this cherished celebration is just a dream.
On Sept. 7 my father and I drove through Enterprise escaping Hurricane Irma’s wrath and my Dad, a former teacher, found out that the Boll Weevil Monument was nearby so stopped to take a picture.
First, I cannot express enough how delighted I was to see the coverage of the City Cemetery and the needs that surround the upkeep of this property in The Southeast Sun.
I just finished watching the Superintendent of the Air Force Academy as he spoke to approximately 5000 people...his students (our future Air Force leaders), members of the 10th Air Base Wing, and other officers.
As “luck” would have it, I had a flat tire on Monday, Sept. 18 in a turning lane of all places. Cars beep their horns. A nice lady stopped to see if I needed help, she said “I know you did not take that tire off by yourself” of course we had a laugh.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my unreserved admiration and appreciation to the fine men and women of our Enterprise Police Department and the Enterprise Public Works Department.
This letter is in response to an article that appeared on the front page of the Sept. 13, 2017 issue of The Southeast Sun. The article pertained to the future of the Enterprise Early Education Center.
I read in a recent issue of the Ledger that Tartan Pines Golf Course is closing and that Mr. Bishop can make more money by developing the land, actually the corporation of which he is the managing director, can make more money.
