The RHATT Pack Watch
Today is Thursday, October 25th, Say 183 of the Rhatt Pack Watch.
Just about everyone who has been driving north on US-41 and lives on the southeast side of White Springs, has at one time or another, taken a right onto Sunrise Drive. Right after crossing the train tracks and directly in front of the old wastewater treatment plant, there’s a pothole in the middle of the road. That pothole has been there from the first day, the Red-face Ratt, came into power. Since that time, it has grown from a tiny piece of cracked asphalt to a large hole. Everyone has seen it. Everyone has driven around it to avoid damaging their vehicle. And of course, everyone has wondered why the Town of White Springs hasn’t fixed this pothole.
This pothole is directly in front of the driveway into the old wastewater treatment plant property. Town employees routinely visit there. AT&T telecommunications workers are on that property every week. Yet for some reason, no one thought about the pothole. Why?
The Lapdog “Just keep paying me” Tebow is an “Out of Towner”. She stays in her closed and locked office in Town Hall, if and when she bothers to show up in White Springs for work. She doesn’t know the streets and roads in Town. She probably never drove on Sunrise and doesn’t even know where it is. She just doesn’t care about White Springs’ residents and what they need. In fact, you need to look long and hard to find an employee of the Town who lives here and knows and cares about it and its people. And, no one’s going to count the Ratt’s dealer, just because he’s set up operations out of Town Hall. And the Ratt, well all he cares about is how much of the White Springs precious revenues he can divert into his pockets or those of his “Cousins” and “Cronies”.
A quick check with Lowes and Home Depot indicates they sell ready to use “Asphalt Repair” materials. These include items like Gardner, Ready Road Repair and Black Jack Speed Patch at Lowes, and Sakrete Blacktop Patch, Road Rescue Asphalt Repair and Latex-ite Driveway Filler at HOme Depot, and more at both establishments.
For under $50, White Springs could repair that pothole any day of the week. Maybe $50 is too expensive for the Town. Let’s See! In the last three years (i.e. Fiscal Year 2015-2016; Fiscal Year 2016-2017 and Fiscal Year 2017-2018), the Town has received over $510,000 in Local Option Fuel Tax revenues and according to the State will receive at least an additional $210,738 in Fiscal Year 2018-2019.
The Town doesn’t need to hire one of the Ratt’s Cousins for $10,000 to study the pothole and another “Cousin” for another $10,000 to fill the pothole. All it would take is for the Town to send one of the people who is sitting around Town Hall on his/her butt now, to Lowes or Home Depot with one of the infamous White Springs’ credit cards and pickup a couple of containers of asphalt patch material. That should take about an hour. At least, that is what it would take for any normal person in White Springs. It should take another fifteen minutes to open the container and pour the material into the pothole.
The “Watch” realizes this may be too much for a Town Manager to understand. If you need help, consider speaking with anyone in White Springs who’s worked construction. Try Woody Woodard, Robert Marshall and more. Heck, Lowes or Home Depot might even send someone to show you how to do it. In fact, buy a pallet of asphalt patching material and fill all of the potholes in White Springs.
White Springs, you’ve got a bunch of folks in Town Hall that don’t live here and couldn’t care about what you experience each and every day. They destroyed all of the infrastructure and let crime run rampant. Get involved. Join the team. Call the FBI office in Jacksonville (904) 248-7000.
