    If the ncwildlife,, would get in the creeks and blow up all the beaver damns,,the water would drain and we would not have these problems

    Can we get road names instead of state road numbers? Road numbers don't help.

    You would have thought that when they reworked that drainage last year they would have raised it to eliminate the flooding of the road at that time. OOP's,that would required some foresight and intelligence, MY BAD.

    Why don't the dot put the sign for worthington rd closed at cubbies, instead of at the bridge,so then everybody is not trying to turn around at the bridge. Common Sense
