$7 million is what they asked for and $7 million is what they should get. No borrowing, no more debt. Its time elected officials, even Judges who are elected, be forced to stick to their promises. What a refreshing change that would be for every politician.
The Butler, a movie designed to make liberals feel good as it bashes the Reagans and highlights racist Oprah Winfrey, just back from her exicting vacation in Switzerland.
Message to the school board and superintendent: Defending this God is Dead painting is making the situation even worse. It's not going away until that painting is gone and then we will remember who kept it up even after the people wanted it taken down.
I agree with the comments on the God is Dead painting at Alcovy High School. They wouldnt for a second have a painting saying God is King or God is Great! But the school system digs in its heels to protect a God is Dead painting. Who for a second thinks they would allow a painting insulting Islam or Judism? No one in their right minds. But its open season on Christians and the Newton School board has joined the fight. Remember that three of the school board members are up for reelection next year, Hold them accountable.
56 Vick, if Douglas is doing such a miserable job, why don't you run against him next election. I might vote for you if you can show me you would stand against gun control, tax hikes and midnight pay raises.........and the Conyers PD operating in Newton County. So how about it 56Vick? Why not do something productive rather than just complaining all the time. Get out there and let us have a look.
This is a dog and pony show, most commissioners will not hold the line on taxes and will not hold the line on pay raises. What will be next next?
Very proud to have Newton Medical Center serving our community. Newton County is fortunate to have their services and I hope they continue their tradition of excellence for many, many years.
Its clear the three tax hikers don't care what is already being paid, its clear they don't care what the total tax is. It is clear they only want more money because they believe the people who have to work for a living are not watching. What is really clear is that they will have big problems in their next election if this goes through. Particularly the "republican" in the crowd.
tax, tax, tax, all government knows how to do is raise our taxes. I agree with the previous poster, get out to the commission meetings to tell those politicians we don't need any more taxes, we need jobs and income for our citizens. Voting for higher taxes means you lose my vote in the next election. Period.
Very sad, prayers to the family.
