One method for county commissioners and the Washington City Council to find out what citizens’ concerns are would be to have booths at the Washington-Beaufort County Business Expo. Just standing by several of the booths and listening to some of the discussions was informative, enlightening and sometimes amusing.

The Turnage Theater would be wonderful for one of these mega-churches with a large population.
