Tomorrow night!!!
Ride For 45 And Also Supporting The Men And Women In Blue !
Anyone know who this sweet puppy belongs to
The "flowerbeds" in the middle of Church St that our tax dollars paid for to keep semi trucks from traveling down the road are definitely not working. Where are the city officers? You would think there would be someone patrolling the road to be sure this doesn't continue to happen. Instead, there is nobody in sight and our tax dollars are getting spent on ridiculous stuff like flowerbeds in the middle of the road.
Seriously. Dumbest thing ever. Road is totally garbage, potholes and horrible repairs, but hey let's make the roads even worse!
TONIGHT!!!
Georgia Residents .
We are ready for fall weather!! 🥵 anybody else?
hey Sharon!! Any idea of what movie will be playing in the Loganville drive in as well as the location?
Who or where do concerned people call regarding this constant mess at chic-fil-a Monroe with the traffic? Can not get into the shopping center either side of chic fil a drive thru blocking entrance to go to other businesses!Cars in the pouring rain literally stopping traffic on 138 headed towards 11 ??? This is such a bad bad situation right now !! People going around this white car into the oncoming lane to get through. Called chic fil a they said there was nothing they could do about it ? I suggested they could call the sheriff maybe for help .. they said they “can’t call” a director would have to call?? This is so dangerous !
