We’re not No. 1, but No. 5 is a nice feather in our caps


- — Bob said, “People get upset if they are four vehicles back at an intersection.”

How true. I find myself complaining just like everyone else. But traffic problems here are so minor compared to waiting at lights in big cities.

We complain about how long it takes to get through Hermitage because of the number of traffic lights, but compared to other areas the wait is minimal. But still, it’s human nature to complain when you have to sit at a red light.

OK, we don’t have the climate that people in Florida or western states have to offer. But if you can find a job, it’s obviously a good place to raise a family.

And just maybe the positive ranking in Forbes magazine will help attract more businesses to this area to provide those jobs. Let’s just hope that when new businesses do move in, we don’t have to add more red lights.
