    There's Steve Brown's boy! He sure loved trashing Sheila Huddleston to get this clown elected, and lo and behold, Barlow turns on his own benefactor later. They both deserve each other.

    MLC: I just read the agenda item and this is what I am getting out of it. Some of the PTC companies along Hwy 74 have employees who would like to each lunch by the lake. It looks like the companies are willing to pay the $50 yearly pass for each employee and possibly pay for a placard in the car window. Its a tough call. These companies pay taxes. I would like to hear more, but if it were me at this point I would allow the companies to buy yearly passes for their out of county employees for one hour lunches predicated on each company also putting down some type of retainer for the additional trash and litter detail that will eventually be required (due to some moron). I'm not to confident this will pass. Some folks are jealous and may like to stick it to the other.

    "Georgia has 159 health boards with seven mandated members for each board." Georgia also has 159 counties. Not a coincidence. That means they need ANY seven people per county with more time on their hands than brains. David Barflow should be ashamed of himself in his neverending self-promoting ways.

    Next up Listen to the next lovefest at the BOC meeting Thursday about the use of Lake McIntosh park by everyone who works in the county and does not live here. A park paid for by our FC Water System dollars. FCDA is rounding up out of county folks to push to use the park. An administrative (financial and resource) nightmare, if it comes to be.

    Scraping the bottom of the barrel. This is why Georgia lags behind in so many facets. He must have been the only one to raise his hand when asked who wanted the position.

    I wonder if the city asked the FCDA to provide a financial report that shows the projected income from the 4th of July festivities

    Here's to a prayer for the good health and welfare of the Chair for the next year. Amen. I'm passionate about having a few gazillion in the bank, that doesn't make me qualified to run the Federal Reserve.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I don't like all my co-workers. But if they are right and simply recommend a way to provide additional checks and balances without adding any costs, then I will be for it. Gwinnett leaders agreed last week to hire an internal auditor, adding another layer of review to county spending and operations. If Fayette is not careful, one day, we will have this extra layer too. Trust no one especially when they are in charge of someone else's money. It may not happen under the current regime, but it will happen.

    Brown just can't figure out how to get along. Seems to always be trying to stir up something...just not my cup of tea.

    This place is needed in this area. It's ridiculous that all the opposition and first denial is coming from a Villa Rica treatment facility. Even Piedmont that is already in the area supports this. You have a vacated hospital that you want to turn into a treatment facility for those with mental and substance issues. It astounds me that there is opposition to this. Of course, that opposition is from other for-profit enterprises but it's total BS. It reminds of how years ago FC had to fight like hell to get a hospital in the area.

    The hospital will provide a needed service to a deserving population group.

    One thing great about being on show like TWD is that you can milk it for 20 years after on the COM-Con circuit

    Does anyone know what the financial impact will be should they not be able to have the 4th of July fireworks celebration? I bet it would be more this year since its on a Saturday. I guess liquidated damages against the county won't work since it would come from our pockets anyway. Guess city administration and council were all dreaming of being the first ones down the water slide and possibly reacted too late to address the schedule delays that effect one of the most important days on the PTC calendar.

    We appreciate your efforts Mr. Brown, never stop sharing truth to the lowly, sleeping, stressed taxpayers. Our eyes always seek transparency!

    The decision to dredge by the city sure helped this timeline, didn't it? Way to go, council and mayor.

    Cricket I wonder if the city planner has talked to MOBA USA to see if they would allow one of the soccer fields they want to build to be used for cricket, too. Notice Zaheer Faurqi's leadership again. Some of these guys used city baseball fields here in the past and it wasn't exactly a good setup. Hope this works out. Have never seen a cricket game, looks pretty complicated to me, but if Mother Nature turns off the spicket, might be interesting to go watch. 6 hours. Wow.
