She couldn't have cared less about it. It was almost trashed and I figured it would be cool to have hanging in there. She apparently didn't.

Can you post a picture of it ?

The timing, however, is very suspect. Husband sends out letter against the pumps, people in the area get upset, store closes.

She'd already removed gas pumps recently and that didn't seem to me to be the sign of somebody looking to shut down.


I knew as soon as Billy sent that letter the store was gonna tank. You don’t crap on people when they are under stress. I also find it funny that Billy is worried about saving South Delta wetlands but is supportive of a project that will destroy thousands of acres of critical wetlands in the Pearl River basin.

I believe he’s referring to the two lakes project. A complete sham.

I would not be opposed to seeing the federal refuge that supposed to be going on the Rankin County side buying up all the land on the Madison and Hinds side as well and having the refuge exist on both sides.

I grew up as a kid with that treasure in my backyard and would hate to lose that wetland to development.

They have renamed and redesigned the 2 lake project to one lake and are trying to justify it by calling it a flood control project.
