CHARLESTON -- A bridge to nowhere may be the perfect example of federal spending excess but a "ditch to nowhere" may be the only way for a county businessman to get rid of an excess of water.

Britton Ferrell said he farms land across the road from Thompson Flying Service located on the north side of County Road 220 near Charleston.

Ferrell asked if commissioners during their regular meeting Thursday if the county intends to put a culvert in to carry water from the north side of the county road to the south side where he farms. He said it would have an impact on the land he farms and other farmland in that area and would have liked to have been notified of the Commission's plans.
