Time to bury the power lines
Editor: Every year there are situations where residents lose power. It always seems to be related to a weather incident, such as extreme cold or hurricanes. When power is lost, FPL or JEA dispatches a team of workers to replace power poles, power lines to get the power up and running. Then in acouple of months, another weather incident takes the power lines down and they have to do it all over again.
Seems to me, it would be much more cost effective to put those power lines underground, and be done with it. I know the power companies will respond with “but it’s too expensive”. Over the long term, the cost of annual replacement of overhead power lines versus the inconvenience of their customers should equal the decision to install the power underground.
All of the power lines that were replaced when we were visited by Matthew, were replaced when we were visited by Irma. All of those new lines will have to be replaced yet again come September when we get the next bad storm. There has got to be a better way!
Trump pushed forward while the left whines
Editor: The negative commentary about President Trump continues to be front and center of this paper.
Instead of reporting the positives that President Trump has accomplished, The Record relishes in printing the negative side of the story. The letters from the left still lamenting their take on how the government should be run are their talking points mantra.
The real facts are: Donald Trump is a businessman, not a politician and therefore conducts his job as president with a more practical approach to governing. This drives the left crazy.
Let’s face it, he has accomplished more in his first year in office than any other president. You can call him all sorts of names but he wont be deterred in “making this country great again.”
