Dear Editor, I have held off writing this letter for close to a year, but since the question has been asked, "How many deaths does it take?", I thought it was time to share my views. I, too, drive this dangerous section of U.S. 127 daily. I am sure almost everyone who also travels this road can share many horror stories about the totally out of control traffic situation. The ones of us who meet many mornings and evenings at some of the quik stops always comment about how bad it is out on the road.

STANFORD - A sheriff's deputy says it's amazing that two women were not hurt when their vehicle struck two horses on U.S. 27 Sunday night in Lincoln County. Deputy Chad Smith said even though one horse died, the collision could have been much worse. Smith said Paul Lewis, 56, of Richmond, was traveling north on U.S. 27 in a truck pulling a trailer and boat and struck a horse that had gotten out onto the roadway from Mayor Eddie Carter's farm. Smith said a gate was left open on the property, and the incident happened just before 11 p.m. in front of Dix River Country Club.
