termlimits 1 year, 2 months ago on Lawsuit filed against Newton school board for January bus wreck

Unreal. You folks want our BOE to pay for this? Who do you think pays when they are found liable? Not them personally!!! It's you and I that pay via taxes. It was an accident and now this ambulance-chasing lawyer has it so you can bet there will be a settlement. We, the tax payers, lose!!!!!!!!!

Gun Control????????????? The latest version of the "shooting ordinance" is less restrictive than the last one. Try to follow along here - - - less restrictive. For you people that seem to be slow "less restrictive" in this case means you can essentially shoot in more places than you could before. It was a positive step for us shooters.

termlimits 1 year, 3 months ago on Douglas pins pay raise on fellow commissioners

The raises are ill-timed indeed but commisioners have stated what they will do with their raises and why they feel the way they do. If you disagree with the final action then there will be an election cycle to demonstrate your view. Time to move on.

Don't for get commisioners, your raise will increase your payroll taxes at all levels. Refusing or giving the raises back is noble but you will still pay taxes on the raise - unless it is deductible to give it back to the county. All this state law is doing is ensuring you pay more taxes, assuming you give the money back. Hmmmmm, poetic justice?

"Gun control"??? This ordinance was not about gun control!! It was about shooting safety. I have a right to own a car but I do not believe I have a right to drive it in any manner I choose because the safety of others is involved. Driving laws outline that for me and everyone else. I own and shoot guns all the time but I have to consider there are other people living near me that could be injured if I do not exercise basic safety. Shooting laws and guidelines outline that for me. Neither driving or shooting laws are needed for me but there are idiots out there that do need guidelines. All that said, the new gun ordinance is less restrictive than the old. That's right - less restrictive. Read the old and the new very carefully and you'll see what I mean.

The Almon overlay variance was nothing. Just wait until the Hub overlay battles begin.

termlimits 1 year, 5 months ago on Attorney: No conflict with Nelson Heights

The Nelson Heights thing is part of a SPLOST trade-off between JC and a previous commissioner. Nelson Heights for Agricultural Center - remember? So if we never get an Ag Center, what happens to the money appropriated for it? Guess who would be appointed director of the Ag Center if it ever were to open? You got it - the former commissioner. Our commissioners are much, much smarter than we give them credit for huh? I don't know about the rest of you but it sickens me.
