    He did explain it.                                                                It made him mad that the state is treating us in a shabby manner. He and the others feel it is the state's responsibility to upgrade a state facility. Not sure he's wrong. This would be a good time to have leaders like Paul Heard and Dan Lakly around. Without fanfare or discussion our DMV branch would be as nice as the one in Rockdale. Have you seen that one? I can drive there, get renewed and drive back in less time than standing in line at Fayette's.
                                                                                                  They have a concierge who prechecks documents  and offers actual help. They will also give you a provisional license for 30 or 60 days if you need to track something down out of state. They always have 4 or 5 and once I saw 8 stations open and processing people. It shouldn't be that hard for a few government workers to just do it.

    Fayette County DMV situation has improved. I was impressed with how the staff makes do with what they have.  They have installed a covered porch to keep folk out of the elements while they wait in line. The staff also comes out and verifies paperwork of those in line to make sure their wait is not in vain. That's a nice touch. They are always fully staffed and friendly. Of course will never be as nice as when they had one at the PTC Kroger.

    Sorry I made you feel embarresed. 
    O'Bummer is gonna be on the Vineyard one last time, thank gawd, in a few weeks.  Will be nice when the Wampanoags can get it back from him and his gang and get that casino built. 
    As one resident just said, "looking forward to September already" and another said "Another reason not to vote for Hillary, we sure don't want the Clintons coming back every summer". 
    A little Vineyard humor there.

    Trump unfit to be president? Well we know for sure that Hillary is. She has proven that. With Trump we won't really know untill he gets a chance. As I see it while he may backfire, Trump is the only chance that we really have.

    Explaning them is dicey                                                         I was sort of making an old classic New England joke based upon his name and I know better than trying to explain jokes, so I'll just repeat it and move on.
                                            I went on vacation and took the ferry to Nantucket. (Response) Oh yea, how did he enjoy the trip.
                                                    I am so embarresed that I had to do that.

    Stranger than Fiction

    Today in the AJC I witnessed something I have never seen before.  All four op-ed columnists (Jay Bookman, Kyle Wingfield, Leonard Pitts, and George Will) agreed on the unfitness of Donald Trump to be president.  Amazing!  This certainly disproves that the Republican nominee is divisive.  He is bringing together the most diverse political ideologies in the country!

    As I wrote on the AJC a little earlier, I just hope she didn't hurt Slick Willie's chances of becoming First Lady.....

    Or maybe she is going to lawyer up with Hillary's Criminal Clan so that she can join her cabinet (she thinks).

    Bravo Councilwoman! Your assessments and concerns regarding Fayetteville Schools are spot on. Regarding the "fraud" issue, you did more than imply it, and for very good reasons.

  • Reply to: This weekend's lane closures   1 day 12 hours ago

    Here's a lane closure                                                              Debbie W. Schultz has resigned because she wants to spend more time with her family. Or maybe it was because she did not want to be a distraction. Or maybe she needs to consult with the clinton campaign about how to handle e-mail security. No reason to worry about the country. These folks have got it together.

    Took the ferry to Nantucket                                                           This was several years ago, but we went from Hyannisport and got on the boat (or was it a ship) and arrived in Nantucket shortly thereafter. Great trip, nice weekend, good food and great weather. I took the ferry back and he went back to his job in the big city and he said he enjoyed the trip.

  • Reply to: City manager leaving Senoia   1 day 14 hours ago

    Senoia will be better off without Mr. Ferry. He lies and plays favorites. It's okay for certain employees to get drunk in the city they work in and there's no consequences. He will also tell you something then doesn't follow through. Senoia is a wonderful city when they get rid of their drunk employees that play golf on city time.

    Steve Brown please explain why we spend $64,000 for a hot air ballon festival and can not explore ways to upgrade our Drivers Liciense facility?  Have you visited our DDS facility lately ? This was an old house 10 years ago. Please come by and note the lack of parking and citizens have to park across the street with no crosswalk. Someone will get hurt at this location with the parking issues. Brown please look into this for the citizens of your district and offer some solutions.  I do not hear you biring one solution to the table for discussion and I hope when Maxwell comes on board after the first of the year he will bring some fresh leadership to this Board. Brown has served almost 6 years and I can not think of one project or improvement that he has suggested.  Brown looks and talks like a Democrat but he claims to be a Republican.  Brown votes for the SPLOST  huge tax increase and probably will vote for Hillary in Nov.  That doesn't sound like a Republican. Aunt Bee ain't happy.

    I hear ya, Jessie.  We've got a "son of an innovator" in our family, too.  You're right about why folks flew to Fayette County.  And, I am so afraid you are right about Sandy Creek Rd.  Without a doubt, the most beautiful old home place I've seen in Fayette County is on Sandy Creek Rd.  It is almost impossible to see the home from Sandy Creek, but if the Waller Family were to invite you up their drive, you would see Fayette County at its best.  I would really hate to see a family home place that has been protected for many generations even touched by what some folks call progress.  I know some folks are tired of all my belly aching here.  Even my husband gets perturbed with me every now and then.  I'm just grateful that Mr. Beverly has provided us all with an outlet for our frustrations.  And, just maybe a few young people will find that my ranting and raving about preservation of a quieter, simpler lifestyle has some merit.  I'm very thankful that my family got to experience Fayette County when there was only one traffic light, one grocery store, one gas station, one fast food restaurant and one high school.  I know that sounds like a geezer talking, and I guess I am a geezer.  I guess if I had good sense, I'd walk away from Fayette County, go up to Cherry Log, sit on the back porch, listen to the river roll by, and let the developers have Fayette County.  No more nay saying from me today.  I've got to go bathe my dogs.

    Please explain how Coweta County can afford a performing arts cener and Fayette County can not? Did Steve Brown explore private partnerships or alternate funding for O&M ?  Did Steve Brown really look at the costs of getting this for Fayette County ?  How can Brown not spend time and explore and search for a solution as this is so important for Fayette County ?  Once again Brown has let us down. Brown should ask more questions and perhaps look at a scaled down approach. We don't need the whole hog but Coweta has a nice facility. Brown have you visited Coweta's facility? Brown have you asked about the operations costs and who pays at Coweta ?  I am disappointed in my Commissioner Brown as I do not believe he is trying to make improvements at Fayette County. 
    How much is a 1%sales tax going to get from me each year ? well guess it depends on how much I spend. If I buy a new truck for about $40,000. then the sales tax will hit me for $400.  If my normal home spending is about $250 per week then that is another $130 for a year.  At Christmas I spend about $5000 so that adds another  $50 for a year.   I buy supplies for my business here in Fayette And that could add another $ 600 easily to my cost.  So for me a small business owner This SPLOST will cost me about $1250 per year on average.  My question to my Commissioner  Brown is what will I get for that $1250?  The last SPLOST the County had back a few years ago and I hear we still have money that is unspent from that splost ?  Is that true Commissioner Brown  ?
    This splost represents a huge tax increase for the average taxpayer and small business owner. This splost makes our business owners less competative and could cost us jobs and growth. I hope we get to vote against this splost as I don't believe Brown will spend the money wisely.  As I read that Ognio and Brown did not want to partner with the State to make improvements/upgrade for our Drives License facility but did spend $64,000 on a hot air ballon festival. That sounds like a poor business decision.  Well I've got to head off to work..

    I agree somewhat with this assessment.  Any second generation businessman following a legend wants his own legacy.  I think the developers sought out Mr. Cathy thinking that with his well known and good name in the community, they could use him as the face of the development.  It would be interesting to know how invested he truly is?
