COPPERAS COVE — Looking to spread holiday cheer and also act as an advertising tool for businesses and organizations, a holiday banner sponsorship program in Copperas Cove appears to be off and running after approval from the City Council Tuesday.

The city has taken heat from residents of late over the lack of holiday decorations along Business Highway 190. It has been nearly a decade since the city decorated for the Christmas season. | 254-501-7559

Well thank you firstly to the businesses forking up the good cheer to pay for this, and secondly to city council for voting it in. Rarely do we see action for traditions anymore. Now, if we just teach the knuckledraggers what the median does to prevent the absurdly entitled from causing accidents. Oh is them. My bad.

As for the Christmas decor is fine but what idiot rammed through this island in the middle of the road was a idiot. Traffic backing up at turn lanes and more idiots making u tur ns into oncoming traffic is insane. Guess the bums can use it to beg money from. If it ain't broke don't fix it.


You want businesses to fund your idiotic program while at the same time you build an island down the middle of the road so the people footing the bill can't be accessed. What's next? How about giving out free bouquets of poison ivy!
