[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?
Man, I need to write that check to Regina Quick.

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.
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.
Wow!! that is a great video.
My wife has stage 4 breast cancer and we both laughed and cried over this.

"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.posted @ Saturday, May 14, 2011 - 11:35

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.posted @ Sunday, December 5, 2010 - 10:09
We are blessed to have Chuck Horton serve OC. He is an honest guy with vision.
I will certainly be voting for Chuck.posted @ Saturday, November 20, 2010 - 10:22

Rep. Regina Quick, R-Athens, was one of two local delegates to score less than an "A+" in the Chamber of Commerce's annual legislative score card. She and I played phone tag Monday when I was reporting the story and I wasn't able to get her comments in a timely fashion. Instead, she sent over this statement Wednesday morning and she did not mince her words. (Links and italicized portions are my own; otherwise, it's as she wrote it.) Dear Friends: read more

Of note: The Athens-Clarke County attorney highlighted that the proposed times are, in essence, placeholders for the commission to change or keep as it pleases. Full text of the Use of Public Right-of-Ways ordinance draft is below. read more
