Russian news reporters should not be wondering around by themselves in Baltimore.
She's very lucky.
I got back from Reno but my Montreal job of last week was postponed so now I'm getting the boss's beach house ready for some quality time at the beach. I've got to play with those pesky fish!!!!
Just livin' up to their reputation!
I think it's gonna be a long hot summer in the cities.
Are you coming or going from the soggy Gulf yet?
Get it checked.
Quite creative but it will never work. Stonewall Village won't work as a shopping center--didn't before and won't now. And the traffic would be horrendous. Besides, why would Bonner be interested? Stonewall Village is just right for our County offices--why mess with it? Why would anybody named Patel be interested in anything at Dolce? Nice try though.
I was thinking about this last night. And maybe with more emails being released, we will discover the truth.
In my humble opinion, a rookie council member should not have been placed on the FCDA board in the first place. So the mayor has to take some heat for that appointment.
I was a little annoyed that he simply quit after a defeat. We don't see the great ones go home after they strike out. The great ones dust themselves off and wait for the next pitch to slap a home run.
But then it came to me. We didn't hear much from the FCDA on this. Could it be that they were behind this all the way and used him as a pawn/puppet? And he finally realized this?
In the end, it's probably best that he resigned. He was either used as a pawn by FCDA for his inexperience, wanted to make up for his approving the raises, or simply didn't do his homework.
The mayor probably has enough time to escape the damage, but only if she appoints someone head and heels above all others to this open position.
Fayette County government that is. This is really creative and I suspect Brown or Rapson will eventually wind up taking credit,but I don't care. Just consider this as a solution to the Aberdeen Woods 38 acres. Four easy steps:
1. Have Fayette County buy it. $6million or even a little more- a bargain.
2. Relocate all government offices from Stonewall Village and elsewhere to Aberdeen Woods/Dolce - the classroom building only. Minimal renovation.
3. Sell Stonewall Village back to Bill Bonner for current market value as a shopping center (which is what it was built as) and have millions in profit. Give the Main Street people a say in creating some restrictions - they will salivate over that.
4. Sell the residential and restaurant building at Dolce to Mr.Patel -any Patel will do. He can run a first or second class hotel there and the county workers all get free lunch and 2 for 1 drinks at happy hour. More profits to the county.
And then the Rapson Brown duo can reduce our tax bills by some significant amount for the next few years and take full credit for their leadership.
Simple solutions to complex problems.
That would be the best answer to both your questions.
I don't know if he's going to run again or not, but from the first batch of e-mails it looks like he and Terry were much too supportive of the Great Wolf. Have to read the second batch to be sure, but I think Mr.King is toast for not respecting the land use plan.
And whoever said Dolce is aware of the restrictions on the property and will act accordingly - NAH! There are no restrictions. It is zoned GC. It is also severely undervalued from the purchase price of $30million and besides that Dolce doesn't even own it - some capital investment firm does. All of which is going to lead us into a sale to some bottom feeder who will have nothing but his own interests at heart. Just guessing, but maybe $6million for 38 acres? That's pretty cheap for zoned GC land in PTC - less than $160,000 per acre. Cheap enough to tear it down and start all over. I'd be worried if I lived nearby. At least we know the existing buffers are there. Maybe the county commissioner that represents that area can come up with something. Or better yet, Mike and Terry can make amends by getting a community college there.
Human rights are moral, existing independent of political philosophy. Our view of these rights has changed throughout the course of human history. It was once a right to enslave other human beings and to discriminate against women, other races, religions, etc. Through time and the lens of history, we evolve and understand more about ourselves as human beings and what it means to have rights.
Voting democratically for a party or president, who then once elected enact promised legislation, can hardly be considered "forced". I freely voted for those advocating for healthcare reform. You didn't apparently. The system worked, you just don't like the outcome.
Healthcare is a right. You are on the wrong side of history. The self-induced stress of your position will make you sick, but don't worry you'll be cared for.
Every person that lives in Peachtree City decided to move here because it is a planned community. Wether you are aware of the plan or not, you are living and benefitting from it everyday. Peachtree City didn't happen by accident. That plan is clearly laid out and guided forward by the ordinances. Quite simple really, follow the ordinances to preserve the plan. We are all merely stewards of the plan moving through time. Those of us who understand this dynamic defend the plan and what is has created as countless people have over the city's 54 year history. It's about maintaining standards. GWL was looking for an exception to the plan. We are not a destination. We aren't designed for that. It is clearly stated in the city's ordinances that commercial within the city be for the benefit of the citizens and not a regional draw. I'm sure that Dolce's owners are aware of the restricted uses of the land that they own.
Does this mean Mr. King does not plan to run for another term on council?
Now who is the mayor going to select for the important representative on the FCDA?
currently has $100 billion in unfunded liabilities, which includes $15 billion in outstanding debt it owes to the US Treasury.
However, they did find enough moolah to buy the top of the line Snapper rider mower with a supersized cup holder and a shade awning over the drivers seat. The bad news is the only guy they have on staff who is trained and licensed to operate it is currently on Survivor and will not be back till after the finale next month. Oh, and you are spot on. Nobody at the PO does GAS.
by next Friday. No drudging necessary. Mother Nature decided to save the taxpayers a few million.
However, there will be a guy named Noah at the Battery boat dock with the biggest darn boat you ever saw, and he will be offering couples only rides for free next weekend to all those except the ones who live on the lake that have boats with weeds on the bottoms of them. He said it will be a mystery ride, will be BYOB, and you can bring your doggies and kitties. Casual attire requested. No RSVP needed, just show up, first come, first serve. Someone said it will be called Ark in the Park, but not quite sure about that yet.
Do they really have to look as bad as they do now? Can PTC Code Enforcement do anything? The Landscape/ grass/weeds are an embarassment in their current state.
I guess nobody GAS.
My Comcast works very well at my abode. Internet is especially good compared to neighbors who use ATT dsl.
Competition is also good, I will keep an eye out for the Nulink folks.
Miracles do happen.
Oh, and NuLink, the company that provides PTC city offices with certain telecommunications, has independent contractors going all over the city surveying what would be needed to provide fiber optics to homeowners. Look for them out in your neighborhood with their orange vests on and those measuring wheels and clipboards. They do not come to your door, just to the utility easements. Nothing announced so don't tell anyone, okay?
