"Also council members agreed to spearhead beautification efforts along I-20 exits, specifically exit 90. "
I was in the military, in transit coming home on leave and had no idea about the Tornado that had passed through. I couldn't get in touch with any family to pick me up at the airport because the phone lines stayed busy so I decided to surprise them. Imagine my surprise when the Southeastern stage bus drove down old Covington Hwy.through Conyers. I will never forget the despair I felt.
For the record John, there is "no law on the books in Ga. for running a caution light". I stand behind my intial statement and will gladly do a rebuttal if I am wrong. That's part of a growing problem with drives today, many are mis- intepretting the rules of the road and the law although I will say once more "Your point is well taken". State to me the state traffic law code in which a driver can be ticketed for running a caution light.
For the record John, there is no law on the books in Ga. for running a caution light. Although a caution light should cause drivers to start stopping and not speed up Your point is well taken I only mention this because many of our fellow posters believe anything they see in print or hear on the news. By the way I see that Mr. Douglas has changed his mind about running for a higer office, likely because he feels that the public didn't react to his attack on his fellow commisoners as he thought they would. I think he plays to the crowd and no sympathy from me because he as myself happens to be a cancer survivor.
The more I hear from Douglas the less I think of the man. His shananigans began while as a senator he was stopped by the Conyes Police and cried like a baby to anyone that would listen. He seems to be either playing to the public or trying to further his own career by his tactics. Seems to me he tried to throw his fellow commissoners under the bus on this issue because so many people have strong feelings. As for henrystamm the Sheriff has stated publicly that he is for 2nd amendment rights and given his reasons for seeking change, guess you have started early campaigning for the next election? Or maybe it has something to do with comprehension?
I bet this idiot is a transplant from another state or country. Many of these fools coming here were not raised in the area and they want to bring their thug mentality to our once serene county. This fool could have easily been shot or worse shot a deputy if things had played out a little differently.
Some of the young women are no better or intelligent. I was in CVS to have pictures made Friday and this young lady, looked to be in her early twenties, was talking loudly about having spent the night in jail the night before. No priorities common sense or decency.
"The PSC voted Thursday on the complaint, deciding that there was no probable cause to investigate any further." Maybe this will put the issue to rest but I doubt it.
Okay BOC time to get it right. First, apologize to Mr.Durden for not handling this situation right then give him some type of clarity as to his current status and when he should be expected to end his duties. Hopefully he doesn't feel villified because of this mess, he did what he was allowed to do and any tom foolery that took place happened within the BOC. Good Old Boys hard at work.
The paper will not put readers comments in paragraphs to save space and cost I guess. The citizen poll is another matter, I have seen comments in paragraphs in the past.
I totally disagree with you on the above. I didn't just move to the area and I don't think Frank did as much for the city as he did for himself and his friends, (the man made $80,000 a year in the seventies in a city as small as Covington) During that time the managers of counties as large as Dekalb (Manuel Maloof) weren't making that kind of money. Although Mr.Horton himself is an honorable enough fellow There were more qualified people who could've and quite possibly should have gotten the job but Frank wanted Horton and the council did whatever Frank wanted. And as far as the city being a good place to live, I think that depends on where you happen to live in the city, there are disgruntled homeowners even on historic Floyd street. Thanks for your prospective.
