Some say Georgia's brand in need of a makeover

Well we rank 50th in ethics in state government.
Dead last.
I could say we are number1 in unethical state leadership. That sounds better.

corporations are people too!

Oconee County BOE will vote on increasing millage rate

[quote][b]sweept[/b] - I personally have no problem with them increasing the millage rate a bit. They have done well with the money in schools so far (ie not having to let go teachers to this point). With the decreasing housing values, the rate needs to be upped to just keep the money totals where it was. Id guess most ppl in Oconee probably feel the same, since a lot (if not most) are here for the schools anyways.

I am curious about the last land purchase made for the new Admin building site.
I believe they purchased this from David and Chuck Williams.
Was this a reasonable use of tax money?
I wonder

Jennings Mill extension delayed as workers focus on safety

I have to wonder what is going to be built on that road.
Is there going to be another theater with all the bells and whistles?
What about whole foods?
What about a costco?
What will they bring?

I always thought Sabrina did an outstanding job as city clerk.
Poor ole Winder is in for a bumpy ride with David.

Senator sparred with student at immigration forum

I really expected better of Frank. He is usually much smarter than this.

This vast and wonderful state is still largely agricultural and competes on a worldwide stage. We will always need help during the harvest and planting season.
I would hate to be like Alabama and run off all the help.
Our economy is only now starting to improve.

Watkinsville attorney lobbies for family court

Anonymous Dude

"Well, no, David Sweat has been an awesome judge. The only thing you are disappointed about is that he is liberal."

I am not disappointed by his political views, He is not effective nor efficient in the operation of law.

Perhaps, he may improve.

Ex-pilot for food charity cites waste

Allgood is a fine young man earning a living as a professional pilot.

It seems, he is simply informing the public of the gross excess that goes on behind the ministry. Don't shoot the messenger.

Horton to run for Oconee County commission chairman in 2012

We are blessed to have Chuck Horton serve OC. He is an honest guy with vision.

I will certainly be voting for Chuck.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
