I like corn and rice, but I'd hate to see the Spirit of Freedom celebration not happen this year.
This has been a long tradition since before I was even born. I really think Florence needs to quit being so conservative to the point that they're cutting back on the wrong things and driving people away from the city.
Coming into Florence and seeing half the stores in the mall closed, other businesses closed down around town, whole shopping centers sitting empty...it's time that our City Council does something to boost this town back to a place where people want to come and visit, shop, and live. If not, I think it's time that we tell them that they work for us, they're not doing their job, and that we will replace them in the next election.
