Re: Re: Gas or Oil out, What is the problem????

Go to township board meetings and county commission meetings...the squeaky
wheel gets the grease.  We complained about our poor road going back into
our subdivision at several meetings, always getting excuses (the shaft
basically).  I wrote letters to the editor...made a lot of people mad at me
that still don't like me because I dared speak up.  My argument was that it
was too narrow, not enough room even for two cars at some spots (more than
one accident had occurred), too curvy, washed out in the spring (it had no
ditches) and that in the winter, sometimes it was impassable.  I pointed
out that it would be a shame if someone ever needed an amubulance or
firetruck and they couldn't make it to us in time.  So guess whose house
burned?  Me and my big mouth....yep, the firetrucks got stuck (snowstorm in
March, ya know!) and the ambulance had a tough time getting around them to
take Nelson to the hospital (smoke inhalation...why don't men listen when
you tell them NOT to go in there????) and a few months after we were gone
(bought the place we are in now) they widened and straightened that road
and put in beautiful ditches!!!  So, we got what we wanted but it was too
late for us... so I say, if you want something done, sometimes you have to
ask and then sometimes you have to fight.
