I went to the office on Santa Fe to get my car transferred sometime ago and nobody knew how to handle the transaction. I went to the back office to see Larry Lippincott. He was surly and rude. He sent me back out front and said “That is what the girls get paid for.” They did not help me. I used a paper license plate on my car for six months — and they finally got the vehicle transferred for me.
We traded that vehicle in and bought a Cadillac in Arlington. When I received the notice to renew the tags I went to the Santa Fe office again. They told me they had no record of the vehicle and I would have to go to the county that sent me the
notice — that was Menard County. I had to go to Menard County to get my tags.
Vote for Marjorie King for tax assessor-collector and return courtesy to the office. Getting trained and polite employees back in this important office will be great.
Help the hungry
Whether you are a Democrat or Republican, you can be proud of the efforts the current administration has given toward global poverty and health.
In a pleasant change of pace, members from both sides of the aisle have come together on these issues, and great strides have been made in reducing poverty for those most vulnerable in our world.
In his State of the Union Address, President Bush outlined America’s leadership in this area and asked for Congress to help him do more in these last few months of his presidency. As citizens of Weatherford, and citizens of the world, we must ask our lawmakers to do all they can to fight the single most important problem our generation faces: Global Poverty.
