  1. http://patch.com/georgia/dallas-hiram/dispute-between-brothers-leads-shooting-death-hiram-0 I haven't seen anything on PCom about this. And it's not even being covered by the news much. There was a little blurb early this morning. Evidently they are still investigating, but I can't believe it doesn't have this website lit up. Anything??
  2. A friend and her daughters tried last night to access the trail behind the chamber of commerce. Several police cars ON the trail. They were not allowing access at that point. Anyone know anything about this?
  3. Call cobb animal control. They'll come get it.
  4. Beside the point. I'm not the superintendent. Oh, and you spelled sentence incorrectly.
  5. I find it hard to believe that no one has jumped on the fact that this person is the Superintendent of the school system yet did not proof his letter prior to publishing it. There are two errors that jump out at me: 1st - the second sentence of the first paragraph should only have one comma. The one stuck after the word "available" is incorrect and should not be there. 2nd -- what is that gibberish in the first sentence of the second paragraph? It could have said "Closing the schools is a difficult decision for a superintendent to make, ....". Ugh!!!!
  6. Thanks. I am concerned about Hiram Sudie and Bill Carruth. Always a bad intersection anyway. Hubby and son on their way home from work across from Hardy Chev. and still have not gotten here. They are stuck in traffic and can't see much in front of them. They left work at 11:55!!
  7. where on Hiram Sudie, please??? Also, what about Bill Carruth at Ballentine? Any issues besides school?
  8. Two rounds. VERY loud and percussive. Any ideas??
  9. Ok. I just checked that page out. I'm glad it doesn't automatically get saved to my own page. Ugh! Ick! Yuck! Gross! Pathetic! Disgusting! Waste of space!
  10. Yes, it was a domestic violence situation in a subdivision on Ballentine. A coworker here lives in the subdivision and knew the family. The husband had been beating the wife over the last few years. He tried to take his own life that day. He is at Grady right now in ICU. I don't know names nor would I put them on here anyway. But that's the story.
  11. Such a long statement! Wow! But I agree. It's all politics. I never said I thought Austin was "dirty" BUT I did say (and maybe not very well) that I think it is bad judgement for him to be on both boards. The airport and all it's members may as well have put money in Austin's pocket because that's what it LOOKS like. And that's the part people can't put aside. I know of another case in Hiram where the Mayor was on a committee that got new tenants in that space at the Rotary. When you are in a public seat, you don't throw your weight around to get friends or charities their special favo
  12. Note that the definition for confidential uses Secret in it's definition and the definition for Secret uses Confidential in it (see number 5). Per Webster: con·fi·den·tial adjective \ˌkän-fə-ˈden(t)-shəl\ : secret or private : showing that you are saying something that is secret or private 1se·cret adjective \ˈsē-krət\ : kept hidden from others : known to only a few people : keeping information hidden from others ***** Full Definition of SECRET 1a : kept from knowledge or view : hidden b : marked by the habit of discretion : closemouthed c : working with hidden aims
  13. I agree with you that it is odd that Todd is so out of the loop. But, I also think that something this important should have been discussed some how some way -- even if Austin had to go to the Ballpark with Todd's kids or whatever. Not saying that Todd's time is any less or more valuable than any others. Just saying that this is a very important issue - albeit a confidential/secret issue --- but important none the less. I think that when things go wrong in a committee, one should look at the top. Austin wasn't clear on alot of things. He also doesn't have a good dictionary. He th
  14. I suppose it depends on how far back you want to go. I graduated with Carruths, Aikens, Ragsdales, Rakestraws, Austins........In fact they made up alot of our class that year. So I feel pretty sure it's been going on for close to 40 years.....
  15. While I appreciate your efforts to keep the council honest, I think you went a bit long on Pownall the other day. He said he paid it back. I don't really care that it took him longer than 2 yrs to pay it back. He paid it back. Just like he said he would. My issue is with the emails. First, David Austin and all of the commissioners should not discuss highly important issues via email alone. If Austin wanted Pownall's input, he should have called him on the phone. Everyone on the committee is part time except Austin. So they have lives to lead, families to deal with, etc. I don't
  16. Been going on for decades now. It doesn't help that the big names are still in politics: Carruth, Austin....They are old family who have lived here for ages. They also have big pockets with bigger appetites.
  17. Pubby: I respect your opinion. And that was my biggest issue with Austin as well - the transparency. I do not understand how something as serious as this issue was handled via email. Why wasn't everyone called in on a special meeting or conference call so everyone was notified? Especially the guy in the airport's district?? This is something I just don't get. And, the fact that Austin is on both committees. That screams conflict of interest. Screams loudly. I think Austin needs to resign from one or the other. JMO.
  18. The "county" agreed because Austin is on both committees. Funny how things work out that way. I emailed David Austin too. Told him to resign from one or the other committee. Conflict of Interest. He wanted to me with me AND my husband. I never mentioned my husband's feelings in the entire email. This was an email from me and only me. What's he want with my husband? Does he think if he gets my hubby involved the wifey will back down? HA HA HA!!!!!! Good one.
  19. What the hell kind of name is Sparkles Lashayla? Oh good grief!
  20. Regardless of whether or not Pownall could be trusted, my question is WHY would that even be an issue? WHY the secrecy? I'm not comfortable at all knowing that these people are on their podiums making secret decisions about the county that we ALL live in but, evidently, have no say in what happens to it. I don't care that Austin thinks there should have been a secret. I don't like him. I don't get a good feeling about the way he handled himself in this case. It wasn't professional, it wasn't transparent, it reeked of arrogance and political one-upmanship. There should be no reason
  21. You're probably right. While my kids did not have guns as they grew up, we have two sons who carry guns as part of their jobs and they are quite responsible. I don't believe that by not letting them have access to guns made them any less men. It is truly scary when a small child points his fingers at you in a gun shape and says bang! I've seen it before, although he was not aiming at me. That is irresponsible parenting, my friend. Not saying your kids do that. I'm just telling my side.....
