I'm amazed! No ranting about the city lighting a Christmas Tree at taxpayer's expense! Can't we blame someone for this outrage?

AND, I'm amazed the city has yet to acknowledge the family that provided this tree for all Milton to enjoy.

I'm pretty sure the stories and publicity the first year sufficed. You want them to thank the Cauley's for the tree every single year?

Hey 8:45 am. You are crying sour grapes. Just so much a "wannabe" but never will.

A wannabe? What do you think they wanna be? Ya think they care about big houses, or big egos so they get thanked by who?
