not all those people are "rich" What is wrong with someone wanting to live in a nice home, in a nice neighborhood? Most of the people in the neighborhood have mortgages just like anyone else. It is not the residents that want the road widened, actually they are opposed to the project and also think it is a total waste of money. Maybe all the jealous people should further their education and get better jobs so that they can live with the "rich bastards"

College Drive is a state highway, not a city street. We can all thank State Senator Jerry Rhoads and his wife, MCC President Dr Judy Rhoads, for this load of crap.

Doesn't anyone think that the college needs sidewalks going to it? Have you ever seen the amount of people walking down the side of the road? Just a matter of time before someone gets hit. I do agree that putting in a turn lane is over the top. IMHO

the people in the college drive area have been asking for street lights and sidewalks for 20 years now. and guess what..they pay their fair share of taxes too. as for being in the 'rich' part of town? seems they lay new sidewalks on kentucky ave about every other year. hopewell has streetlights. simply add sidewalks and lights and reduce the speed limit to 35 and ENFORCE IT! hell there are sidewalks from walmart to anton! talk about a waste of money!!! oh well, if nothing else maybe we can get one of those beautiful cast iron statues

If you would install a basketball hoop at the end and have a few dealers and hos standing on the side of the road the city would put in the sidewalks.

I'm sure you were paid well for that half acre you "lost." Geez! You wanted someone to think the state just came through there and said hey, we're taking this so get over it and have a nice day?!?

Well, tell me, how much of a kick back dod Jerry Rhoads and his female dog wife, the bitch if MCC President I mean Queen Judy get from the college after Jerry got the state to set aside all that money. A while back Jerry got $5 million to make the entrance more beautiful. This is after Bitch Judy cut programs at the trade school. Good thing that Jerry's days are comming to an end as state Rep. Hit the road, Jerry Rhoads. You are out!!!!!
