After this last storm and being told it may be more than a week for everyone to get their power back, it's time for Wharton to get with the 21st Century.... I love this town, however; knowing there is a way to avoid these terrible outages with doing away with an antiquated above ground system and the town just trudges along knowing full well we will get hit again just is not right... put our taxes to work with something all Wharton residents will truly appreciate... apply for federal funding, do something, there has to be a way to upgrade this old system...we are seniors and cannot deal with the heat . We have no choice but to spend the next 2 or 3 days at a hotel or motel. Something, at our age and financial situation can I'll afford but have no choice... Thanks for listening..
