I here what you are saying Honest Abe but I have been to dozens of meetings through the years and if the BOC wants something you can scream till your are blue in the face. Hundreds protested the Silos subdivision because we could see what a diaster that was going to be. But the BOC was lying in bed with the developers you see what Newton County got. And you see most people that had been in Salem for years give up and left. It the right commisioners want this its a done deal.
Please don't send any people to Morgan we like our lives just fine. We dont' need shopping malls or any more places to eat. We leave all that for the folks in Newton. I am probaly the only one in America that likes high gas prices because unless you have a good job already you can't afford to move out to Morgan or Lake Oconee. Just saying it keeps the urban sprawl in check at least for a little while.
Let's see 2 shootings in less than a month. I lived 40 years next door to what today is the Silos and we never had any shootings. Anyone who thinks the Silos subdivision is not a ghetto/war zone should pull their head out of the sand.
I used to live next door to the Silo's subdivision before I was part of the white flight that left Newton County. I could see the writing on the wall when the little girl was raped on a Sunday afternoon by 5 thugs in the neighborhood. They weren't all living in the neighborhood some were visting friends. I caught kids stealing things from my property. The peoplle living there constantly threw things and tresspassed on my property. I did get revenge by selling out to a developer making a nice profit before the bottom fell out of the economy. Now all my dear friends see is over grown weeds and a partially developed subdivision. We begged the commisioners not to put a subdivision with that many homes in. But what do you expect when builders were saying don't work we pay closing costs etc. What kind of people did you think were going to bye those homes. I thank the good lord every day for the recession and higher gas prices the urban sprawl has at least been stalled for a few more years untill i retire and leave Georgia forever!
