EDITORIAL: Time running out to share your opinion on monument expansion

How many times have we heard the lament, “No one asked my opinion”? In our hustle-bustle lives, there are times when we’re asked about what we think, but we forget to respond. Such might be the case with the expansion of the Ocmulgee National Monument. In case you’ve not heard, there is an effort to expand the footprint of the 702-acre monument by as much as 2,100 acres. When the monument was originally designated in 1934, it was supposed to be about 2,000 acres, but as usual, money was tight and the size of the park never reached its designated size.
