  • Can you build a toll booth for the occupiers of Gainesvilles median? I’m sure Wild Spaces will cover that. Those funds are being exploited to the hilt, right COMMIEmisioiners?

  • Wow. What a great idea (sarcasm). 222 will remain rougher than a corncob, but it will have a nice median.

  • Just what we need, a longer median to give the panhandlers more real estate.
    What a shame, the taxes for our property keeps going up while the panhandlers get more land and live rent and tax free.
