I guess Julia Hurley’s actions, or lack thereof, speak louder than her words ... about wanting to move past disagreements she has with the county commissioners, and incidentally, the law.
I include the latter because it seems to me, after reading the transcript of her extensive words with a state trooper, she has a problem with the citation as well.
If we, as citizens, were pulled over for speeding, I rather doubt our dialogue would become so excessive and argumentative! If ours did, I can almost guarantee you, our “you know what” would be in the squad car and we’d be on our way to “you know where!”
As I consider Miss Hurley’s recent election to the office of state representative for our district, it is clear to me that she is serving at the will of all the people here.
Which brings me to this: I totally disagree with Miss Hurley when she decided not to file the bill regarding Tiger Haven and the importance of tracking devices.
When we were visiting in South Carolina, a friend invited us over to see the wild animals fenced in on their property. These tigers and lions were being kept for filming purposes, and, were behind rather high fences. We walked to get a closer look at the tigers and stood looking at them and being quiet.
But the minute we turned our backs, bammmm, they ran fast as lightening nearby us at the edge of their fence, and began jumping up.
Just because no wild animal has escaped Tiger Haven doesn’t mean it won’t happen. I would urge Miss Hurley to reconsider her unwillingness to file the bill requested by the commissioners, so that proper parties are able to track any of these wild animals when they take that unpredicted moment to escape. I don’t think she wants to be responsible for, well surely she’ll get the picture!!
