  1. As Lorenzo said the taxes are never enough. WHy? Because more and more of the ad valorem taxes we pay go to something else. The forefathers of this county meant for taxes to go to basic services like police, fire, water and sewage; and public schools which were held accountable. Infrastructure has been kicked down the road for years because it can be, and also due to only a near term vision (which is based on a two or four year election cycle). Our priorities are way too distorted.
  2. We have two bridges; one built pre WW2 (1937) and what we call the new bridge (1973) . It has a main beam that is split in two. Barge Traffic was suspended for a while but its flowing again as of friday. Local engineers at state and private level saying even if they can fix it quickly stress points are going to show up elsewhere prompting a longer shutdown. Really hurting local businesses at this point. Our world famous local BBQ contest just cranked up.
  3. Most likely barge traffic suspended for fear of a runaway tow hitting it and making things worse.
  4. Just a warning in case any forum members are trucking and traveling through Memphis or West Memphis. Our main 40/I 240 bridge is closed. Only the south bridge is open. Considering West Memphis is one of the busiest trucking routes in the County things are getting chaotic here. Major structural crack found; TDOT and ARDOT saying it could be closed for over a month.
  5. Yep Producers in the Delta area already complaining about how all of the inputs and anything related to irrigation is going up.
  6. One thing is or sure; no liberal could stay in the room with him in a debate. His facts were spot on as well as his history. Met his brother one time in Cape.
  7. Got a good friend in this area who built himself a small table with top about level where the bottom of housing is. Makes sliding it backwards onto a platform much easier on the back.
  8. 10 F here in Memphis. Now thats cold for us deep south boys. Another round coming late wed/thur.
  9. Do you split between the range and speed and roll the speed transmission out with the front end first?
  10. A good delta man he was. I was raised about 30 miles from his home town of Sledge. He and Conway Twitty were our local contributions to Country Music.
  11. Are you reffering to the cab solenoid in the fusebox compartment?
  12. tks Will check those out.
  13. Went to crank my 52's the other evening and when shutting down one of them the starter kept going. Engine was off; key switch was off. Jumped off and pulled the cables to shut it down. What are some of the common culprits?
  14. Side exhaust was common for many years in the south around gins. Saw a lot of M's and 806's used around gin yard to move cotton trailers. Side exhaust was used to keep sparks from jumping up into the cotton trailer.
  15. Wonder whats going to happen soon when most of the class of 21 has to take the ACT or SAT? I expect colleges to minimize it eventually as a requirement when they find out how much was missed since March.
