We need more police on the roads because of the way people drive these days,

Echo Ave. again. What's new? Somebody hurry up and die so they will look at changing this road around to something safer. That's the only thing that will get the State and Town off their ass to do something.

Police won't do much good. They show up after the fact.

Tom....One of the 1st of this new series of accidents at Echo & 25a DID claim a life...A young man, who was a blooming artist.... I've lived in the area for over 25 years and this corner was never this bad....Road construction was done for the entrance to the development that was Davis Peach farm and the yield (for the westbound turn from Echo to 25a) was extended..Seems like something in that new configuration could be the problem...

Mels Ditties, I live at the comminity you are talking about. When it was being built the original entrance to the Ranches was supposed to be where the turn lane is a few hundred feet West of what is now the entrance to the Ranches by Peach Tree Lane. The State came by and shut it down and told the builder to re-do his plans and put the entrance by Echo Ave. This was to accommodate the vacent property that the state was funding for assisted living home that is now bankrupt and the bank ownes. Lot's of people lost money on that deal or are still waiting for their share. Now they are planning another assisted care place but nothing has been approved. I guess the State is waiting to see what their share will be. You know how this works! Why do you think Bonner is all for it.

@ Ted Ratter, I guess that explains all of the Lutefisk restaurants popping up in the area.
