Letter to the Editor

Writer defends mud boggers

web posted February 7, 2008
Dear Editor,

Do the Edgefield County Police Officers have anything other to do than to hunt down "mudders?" I know for a fact that Edgefield County has "real" crimes and criminals that need to be convicted, yet we are tracking down people playing in the mud.

Have you ever looked at a BIG messy 4x4 and said to yourself, "wow, someone's been having fun?" Sure, I think we all have, that is why we choose to live in the COUNTRY, not in the city. Now, think of this, have you ever looked at that same big messy truck and said to yourself, "wow, someone's about to be facing felony charges?" I didn't think so.

Should these big trucks be asked to stop playing in the mud, maybe. I think that we should all start looking at this from a real perspective, and ask the question of, why are the trucks coming to this road... And the answer is, not because they are trying to mess up the road, but because the road is already messed up.

The road is messed up and then it rains, allowing big holes to fill with water and that calls out to boys and trucks, just like it just to call out to you on a warm summer day and you went outside to go jump in the mud. So, instead of pressing charges on all the "mudders" maybe you should talk to the SCDOT about putting gravel on your road or paving it. Don't you think that if the road has gravel and no way for mud build up these trucks would stay away from your road?
