Don't merge, rename Valley towns



I saw in The Augusta Chronicle that Burnettown - which has a mayor and police department but no post office, and has already merged into outlying areas by planting flowers, bushes, etc., posting town limit signs and sending their police cars everywhere - are now desirous of taking over and renaming the entire Midland Valley area.

With all of its ills, I, for one, am quite satisfied for Clearwater to remain Clearwater, thank you.
