Willie,
It seems the editor has once again been duped by his Jefferson misquoting friend. Thursday’s quote regarding the possible fate of democracy — Jefferson never said it, nor ever wrote it.

Willie’s on the move, but I’ll have a home soon | Test

As for me being in sports, the paper is changing the way it is printed and is in a transition. Within a couple of weeks I should be in my new spot to stay, but they haven’t told me exactly where that will be. By the way, notice I made it up to news today. I kinda feel like Waldo instead of Willie — you know those “Where’s Waldo?” things! Stay tuned.

Willie,
I’m a waitress at a local restaurant. We make $2.13/hour plus we have to tip the hostess out because they make $2.13 also. Ten percent tips are no longer acceptable. Twenty to 25 percent is the rate we need based on your bill.

Willie’s pals at the Journal report the good, the bad, and the ugly, no matter what | Test

Willie,
On The Journal for Wednesday, March 31 front page, you have a picture “Family grieves after man found dead.” I think it is very inappropriate. This poor family is in enough sorrow and to have them pictured like that is inexcusable. You could have taken a picture of something else.

Willie,
Appreciate your column; it’s the best thing in the paper. I just wanted to pass on some information to the folks.

But they need to check it real good because it’s not Dish Network, it’s Saveology. You got to watch these people. They’re making a percentage of it, so it’s better to call Dish Network direct because they give you a whole lot better deal.

Willie,
Discovered on one of many roadside ads, the kind realtors use, a green round seal, which was a temporary permit, dated as well, for Anderson County. It was stuck into Oconee ground, with the Anderson seal. Does Oconee have such requirements? If they do, how ’bout I pick up all those illegal signs. I hate those things!

Willie wants to wish all his readers a happy Easter and Passover! | Test

Willie,
Since I spend part of my day with you five days a week, I figured the least I could do was drop in and wish you a very “Happy Easter”! When I color eggs with my grands, I’m going to make one with your name on it and when they ask me who it’s for, I’ll tell them it’s for a man that makes me laugh or cry, but, most importantly, THINK each day!
