  1. I know they have been calling - well at least until I blocked the number.
  2. I would not impose the responsibility of my children on others. I guess that is the conservative and take personal responsibility side of me.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. I love the part where they need to continue the tax so they can borrow money (bond) to pay off long term debt....
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. "elections have consequences" I think I heard that once on the BoBo the Clown show.
  9. yes - something that is $40-50 in Paulding is $7 in Bartow even for out of county. $10 is Paulding's minimum load fee.
  10. SG - the Bartow landfill in Emerson is much cheaper than Paulding.
  11. yeah, but I did find a great deal on moth balls!
  12. I'd point the finger at the judge too who is allowing the nonsense. The attorney is just pushing the law.
  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.
  16. Voted yesterday - quick and easy with lots of workers yet it was busy. Somehow I did not get purged - I know my name and address and have docs to back it up.....
  17. Horrible trends - like low unemployment and more of my money in my pocket.... I'd be happy if the unaffordable healthcare act was fixed. Life would be good then.
  18. The fruits of Oboma's policies finally showing results! Right? Personally, I am glad we are past the blame Bush phase for everything.
  19. Article in the Paulding Neighbor noted that Nova Engineering "did the testing of the site's sub-surface area to determine if it was suitable for construction." I hope the county is looking for a refund.
  20. One of my friends helps this place out: https://halfthewayhome.org/
  21. It would be interesting to learn whose brother-in-law "performed" the engineering studies for the new construction.
  22. Wouldn't the seller of the land need to disclose this information (that he/she had a dump on their land?) Tax records show the previous owner had the property at least back until 1976.
  23. "At this festive season of the year, Mr Scrooge, ... it is more than usually desirable that we should make some slight provision for the Poor and destitute, who suffer greatly at the present time. Many thousands are in want of common necessaries; hundreds of thousands are in want of common comforts, sir." "Are there no prisons?" "Plenty of prisons..." "And the Union workhouses." demanded Scrooge. "Are they still in operation?" "Both very busy, sir..." "Those who are badly off must go there." "Many can't go there; and many would rather die." "If they would rather die," said Scrooge, "they had b
  24. so I don't get it - did Ford make a business decision to stop selling a low performing car in the US or did tariffs kill it?
