I totally agree with Buzzy. The column titled “Residents deserve better” was truly on the money.
It is a shame how we Rockford residents let this happen and sit back and say nothing! It’s time to do something now! County Road 18 and Nixburg Road are terrible!
I understand why some people go to Alex City and Kellyton’s Dollar General to keep from driving on these terrible roads, especially Nixburg Road which bypasses DHR and Rockford Church of God.
They said they would rather spend money on gas going to Alex City than tear their vehicles up. Some people want to come to church, need to come to DHR and even to the park there for children but hate to drive on Nixburg Road.
Why do you have to drive all over town to avoid these roads? It doesn’t make sense to me or to a lot of others. I have complained before. Why is nothing done? It makes me want to leave Rockford and not vote, etc. No respect at all to the residents. Where are the leaders?
Rockford was nothing like this when I grew up here. Maybe a little talk with Jesus and a big talk with Coosa County and Rockford leaders will make a difference, like putting water to a dry thirsty plant and talking to it makes a big difference.
One of my plants had drooped because I forgot to give it some water. I thought it had died. I gave it some water, had a little talk with it, and within minutes this plant came alive and stood up better than the other ones that I had given water to. How beautiful that was.
Can you imagine how beautiful Rockford would be if Nixburg Road and County Road 18 were repaired?
Buzzy, you might be flying over me, but you are not flying past me. I hear you loud and clearly. Thank you. More people need to hear you and look up to the sky and say, “Thank you, Buzzy, and thank you, Lord.”
I thank God for “The Coosa County News,” Mr. Lewis Scarbrough, Ms. Christa Jennings, Ms. Lydia Waters, and all the writers, including the guest writers.
Pastor Sam Kaufman of Church of God in Alex City gave us some very fruitful thoughts for this time of season (Jesus’s crucifixion). His column from January 21, titled, “Do this in remembrance of me: Significance of communion,” truly blessed me and Butch both.
Some of us take communion and don’t have the full understanding. Pastor Kaufman broke it down into pieces like putting a puzzle together, and now you see the whole picture.
If you may, read John 6:53-56, I Corinthians 11:23-25, and Luke 22:19-20. You will also see the Lord’s supper was at night.
Rockford Church of God’s family thanks God for sending us a young, smart, wise pastor who knows his duties. Pastor Chris Hill knows what a church represents!
Happy birthday to my nephew Terry Davis on March 27, and praying that he is doing much better. We love you always.
