  1. I'm so mad about this! I realize it's only trash service....now, but what's next??!! It's crap, I don't want to change trash service, I like mine! Waste Industries does not pick up their recycling except every other week and most of our trash is recycling and right now my service picks up EVERY WEEK! I despise Waste Industries, their customer service rivals Comcast in POOR SERVICE! Yep! Lots of exclamation points!! I'm spitting mad! Who can decipher where those lines are in the City of Hiram? It looks like a small child took out their crayon and started drawing. So on one street in Creekside 4 houses are in the city, the next 3 are not, the next 2 are etc.... It's RIDICULOUS!! Ugh!! So mad
  2. Received a bill from Waste Industries yesterday....we don't use Waste Industries , we use A-OK Trash in Douglasville. Called Waste Industries, they were closed, left a message asking why they were sending me a bill? I do not use them and would never use them. Got up this morning to call A-OK Trash just to make sure, their phones are answered by Waste Industries!! Another local small business gobbled up by stupid Waste Industries. I loved A-OK, used their recycling (which is most of our trash) liked that I had two FULL size trash cans. I know several of you pink can owners love A-OK too, sorry to be the bearer of bad news Will you all please recommend a local company that offers recycling that is NOT Waste Industries
  3. We use Hale Automotive in Hiram. John and Amy Hale own it and they are the best! Reasonable prices, honest work. They also have an afterhours box and parking spaces in case something happens after normal "office hours".
  4. He sent me a message, unfortunately they weren't his.
  5. Yeah, the park and rec department didn't seem too concerned or helpful. We did call.
  6. Hubby and I found a set of keys at a local park over the weekend. May have been lost for a little while. If you know of someone or if you lost a set of keys recently, send me a PM with the park you lost them at, how many keys are on the key ring and any other pertinent info that would help us find the owners. Thanks! HMOT
  7. Before you start writing ugly letters or making phone calls...It's called PERSONAL PROPERTY tax and if you owned a boat, you would know that this tax is paid at the same time your REAL ESTATE tax is paid. If you never paid it, then you owe it and that is probably why there is a lien. Paulding County Tax website Check under your name here. HMOT
  8. Try Heath Flooring Concepts. Their showroom is off Seaboard just a few doors down from Chicken World, or if you don't know where that is, it's the stoplight right before you get to the new courthouse on 278. They are great people, their kids go to SPHS (I noticed your name) and I don't think you be disappointed. Ask for Denise when you call, her husband is the owner and they do a GREAT JOB!!! I'll PM you their number because I don't think they'll let me post in in this thread. If you have any questions, send me a PM. HMOT
  9. Thanks for the "heads up". I always get called for the blood drives in Douglasville and I always end up asking if they have anything in Paulding. Thankfully the Hardy car dealerships have been having one about every 8 weeks and we've been trying to go to those. Great to hear there are more going on this holiday season!
  10. I actually copied this from a family member of mine, I cannot take any credit for any of these ideas, but I think this is a great resource for all of us Christmas shoppers! As the holidays approach, the giant Asian factories are kicking into high gear to provide Americans with monstrous piles of cheaply produced goods -- merchandise that has been produced at the expense of American labor. This year will be different. This year Americans will give the gift of genuine concern for other Americans. There is no longer an excuse that, at gift giving time, nothing can be found that is produced by American hands. Yes there is! It's time to think outside the box, people. Who says a gift needs to fit in a shirt box, wrapped in Chinese produced wrapping paper? Everyone -- yes EVERYONE gets their hair cut. How about gift certificates from your local American hair salon or barber? Gym membership? It's appropriate for all ages who are thinking about some health improvement. Who wouldn't appreciate getting their car detailed? Small, American owned detail shops and car washes would love to sell you a gift certificate or a book of gift certificates. Are you one of those extravagant givers who think nothing of plonking down the Benjamins on a Chinese made flat-screen? Perhaps that grateful gift receiver would like his driveway sealed, or lawn mowed for the summer, or driveway plowed all winter, or games at the local golf course. There are a bazillion owner-run restaurants -- all offering gift certificates. And, if your intended isn't the fancy eatery sort, what about a half dozen breakfasts at the local breakfast joint. Remember, folks this isn't about big National chains -- this is about supporting your home town Americans with their financial lives on the line to keep their doors open. How many people couldn't use an oil change for their car, truck or motorcycle, done at a shop run by the American working guy? Thinking about a heartfelt gift for mom? Mom would LOVE the services of a local cleaning lady for a day. My computer could use a tune-up, and I KNOW I can find some young guy who is struggling to get his repair business up and running. OK, you were looking for something more personal. Local crafts people spin their own wool and knit them into scarves. They make jewelry, and pottery and beautiful wooden boxes. Plan your holiday outings at local, owner operated restaurants and leave your server a nice tip. And, how about going out to see a play or ballet at your hometown theater. Musicians need love too, so find a venue showcasing local bands. Honestly, people, do you REALLY need to buy another ten thousand Chinese lights for the house? When you buy a five dollar string of lights, about fifty cents stays in the community. If you have those kinds of bucks to burn, leave the mailman, trash guy or babysitter a nice BIG tip. You see, Christmas is no longer about draining American pockets so that China can build another glittering city. Christmas is now about caring about US, encouraging American small businesses to keep plugging away to follow their dreams. And, when we care about other Americans, we care about our communities, and the benefits come back to us in ways we couldn't imagine. THIS is the new American Christmas tradition.
  11. I don't profess to be an expert, but I believe that GOOGLE can be your friend if you are trying to weigh the pros and cons of toll roads. What I found was that it worked in some areas and it didn't in others. As a Californian now in Georgia, I can tell you that toll roads are a "GODSEND" in California. Commuting on freeways that are 6 lanes in either direction cut into a HUGE amount of your valuable time. As far as new jobs, here is an interesting article about the benefits in Orange County, CA. Now before you all start bashing me, I'm just providing one side to a story. Californa Tolls Will it work here? I don't know, but we definitely need some help out here in PC.
  12. Bankruptcy attorney - Thomas Williams - offices in Dallas, Cartersville, Rome and Dalton *free consultation* I'll PM you his number because I'm not sure I can put it in a post anymore. Great attorney that gives great advice whether you need to file or maybe not.
