  1. While I agree industry is needed, that will all start with proper transportation infrastructure. Would love to see a "highway 61 connector" from I-75 to I-20 right down the middle of the county to bring in industry.
  2. I don't think I would want to give any money to an organization that spent 5.5 million to build something and then sold it for 4. Isn't real estate suppose increase in value? That is what I am told about my property taxes year after year.
  3. I love the part where they need to continue the tax so they can borrow money (bond) to pay off long term debt....
  4. Will be interesting to see if the local residents who came up with lots of money to fight noise in previous lawsuits will once again open "their" pocketbooks to save the county from the "loud and ugly" aircraft. My bet is this never gets off the ground.
  5. I learned yesterday that the Bartow landfill no longer takes out of county customers. My $2.20 load yesterday will not cost $10 at Paulding.
  6. "elections have consequences" I think I heard that once on the BoBo the Clown show.
  7. yes - something that is $40-50 in Paulding is $7 in Bartow even for out of county. $10 is Paulding's minimum load fee.
  8. SG - the Bartow landfill in Emerson is much cheaper than Paulding.
  9. yeah, but I did find a great deal on moth balls!
  10. I'd point the finger at the judge too who is allowing the nonsense. The attorney is just pushing the law.
  11. I have endured 22 months of unemployment in my 30 years of working after college. Never missed a payment or was late. I did take unemployment benefits and mortgage assistance that helped me survived, but my ole-man's teachings prepared my family for that circumstance. The difference between my family and the moocher class is that I am not dependent on others.
  12. Here is old school wisdom that my dad passed along to me - "son, you can't always depend on others - make sure you have 90-180 days pay stored away for a rainy day." If you live paycheck to paycheck you are 2 weeks away from disaster. We are all products of the choices we have made that have gotten us to this day. If your choices got you to head trash-keeper making $30/hr at one of the national parks and you can't make it without a few paychecks then I find it hard to have a lot of compassion.
  13. RFP should have been put out. I would think that it was county policy to bid jobs of a certain value.
  14. If you go with a BGE then check out the festivals in the spring and fall that sell the demo units for a good price. We got ours at the North GA show a few years ago and my wife really likes it. Dual probe wireless thermometer and ash basket are two good accessories to have. Cowboy charcoal from Costco is best price performer.
  15. Maybe a trespass charge and bill for emergency services expenses will deter this type of behavior in the future.
