Linda Cook: Cites need for bridge on Keen-Wilson Road

Can now make creek crossing to get to Ozark and Putman County in Adair County, and Russell Springs, and Russell County only when the creek is down and in Ronald's pickup; her car is too close to the ground to ford the stream.

Linda Cook writes:
Fully agree with the author of this comment. My mother in law (the lovely Doris Cook) lives in the land of Putman. To get there is either a trip through town to go out 80 or up 92 from our house in Beautiful Joppa and backtrack from Russell Springs. The only time we can "cross the creek" is when it hasn't rained much and we are in Ronald's truck - my car is too low for such doings. Don't know in which magisterial district this problem lies, but would love to see some bridge construction there. - Linda Cook
Thanks, Linda Cook - It's a project which will benefit a lot of people, especially those in Third District Magistrate Sammy Baker's District and in Second District Magistrate Daryl Flatt's District as well as all of Russell County CJE Gary D. Robertson. And, of course, shot callers of political parties, who have 'say' with any government official who has more clout than a broke thumb. Don't know whether the Adair County Road Department builds Russell Creek sized bridges or not. They sure put some good ones over Sulphur. Hope you go for it. -EW
