  • LETTER: New billboards seem to take away community's value

    Dear Editor,

    It saddens me immensely to see billboards being erected on Lincoln Parkway.

    Most of these festivals take place over a ten week period that begins in late August and runs through Halloween and food is often the focal point.  During that time, you can find events dedicated to apples, country ham, sorghum, bourbon, honey, and barbecue.
