"A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives."

There seems to be a question of priorities regarding spending of money. There is not one shelter in Scottsboro built by the City of Scottsboro. The Jackson Coiunty Courthouse is the only approved shelter; this leaves areas west, east and south in the City of Scottsboro without sufficient storm shelters. There are large mobile home communities in these areas.

What happened to the almost six million dollars not used on the service road project? Have we wasted it on worthless or unnecessary things as have shown up recently.
