Editor, The Commercial:

Now that Shirley Washington is our new mayor, maybe she will get the cooperation and support that our former mayor did not get.

Now that we have new City Council members, maybe the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff will start taping the City Council meetings again.

People in Pine Bluff and the surrounding areas, stop talking and texting while you are driving. Is it really that important that you can’t wait to get to your destination?

If you take your eyes off the road you are going to cause an accident. It is against the law to text while driving. When the red light turns green, I see people just sitting there holding up traffic while texting. Stop it. Finally, put on your seat belts.
