Government & sewage

I detect a "distink" correlation between certain units of local government and sewage. Hmm … coincidence?

Leave Schmidt alone

I am writing to object to your reference to Representative Wayne Schmidt in articles concerning the problems with the Clinch Park Splash Pad. If there is any finger-pointing to be done, it should be in the direction of the designers, contractors, builders and those in the city and county who may or may not have exercised due diligence. Representative Schmidt did his job — he advocated for the people of his district who were all hopeful that the splash pad would be ready for the Cherry Festival. This is a matter of fairness, not politics. I happen to be a Democrat.
