Waycross J.H. Editor Spouts Nonsense.

Mr. Williams was at it again today with his idiotic refrain regarding the defunct bypass project ! He continues to make claims that the Georgia DOT is some how demanding Ware County reimburse them "their" two million dollars that was spent on engineering and environmental studies for the abandoned project. The Georgia DOT does not have "their" money, it is our money ! The point of these studies is to find out if the project is environmentally suitable to proceed with such a project. Projects are scrapped frequently because the studies show too much impact to the environment. While that was not the reason the bypass was halted it is a reason many projects never get off the drawing board. Mr. Williams states Commissioner Burton Carter has informed him the DOT expects to be repaid the two million dollars ! How about producing some type of official communication from a named official with the Georgia DOT that conveys their attempt to seek reimbursement from Waycross/Ware County ? Yeah, that's what I thought ! Also Mr. Williams makes the statement that if the State Street R.R. bypass could be fast tracked that would eliminate the need for the ABC avenue extension across Kettle Creek to Wacona Avenue. That is totally inaccurate ! The State Street overpass will do nothing to correct the issues that the ABC Avenue extension will fix, which is making a whole, heavily populated neighborhood fully accessible to safety vehicles at all times even when the damn train has all of the crossings blocked. What a clown ! It's almost like he lives in Pierce County instead of Ware !|
