My Dad was in the Military in […]

Dear Editor I appreciate the letter (01/31/2018) from Sheriff Sid Lockhart regarding the inmates and litter details. I am aware the inmates do a lot of community service as Sheriff Lockhart pointed out and they are very much appreciated. I am also aware that these highways are state and federal highways but it appears inmates […]

Dear Editor, I would like to respond to the letter to the editor from Mr. Randy Talley referencing littler along local roadways. First, I would point out that Highways 50, 77, and 431 are state and federal highways so the maintenance falls back to the state. However, the Chambers County Sheriff’s Office operates two inmate […]

Letter to the Editor: It is a disgrace the amount of litter on the highways in Chambers County. Entering Chambers Co. from Randolph Co has the appearance of a trash bin. Highway 77 North and section of 431 South have many areas where trash is the overwhelming view as opposed to the country sites. Oh […]

To the Editor: I see that you are soliciting letters to the Editor in the LaFayette Sun (Jan. 10, 2018 issue, bottom of p. 4A “WRITE US”) I decided to respond, especially since there appeared on the same page an editorial entitled “Congress is too old” that advocates term limits for our elected representatives, and […]

Dear Editor: Kudos to the Chambers County Sheriff’s Department for having the litter picked up on County Road 16. It looks great!! County Road 16 is a cut-through road between Hwy 431 and Hwy 50. Drivers who use this road, please help us keep it litter free. It will make everyone’s commute much more pleasant! […]

Dear Editor Wilcox: Re Steve Flowers’ column of April 5, 2017, it ill behooves Flowers to sneer so callously at the disgraced governor of Alabama by referring to him as “the ole fellow,” who is widely regarded as a “buffoon or clown” and has as much influence as “the former goats that used to graze […]
