Mr. Thomas offers much criticism of the Affordable Care Act but fails to add anything to the discussion how we can repair our broken health care system.
Why did the city council ever let any historic district map of the city to be drawn up withouth the cemetary and its WWI and WWII veteran grave sits being included?
I will have to agree with Messrs. Hicks, Knapp, and others in opposition, that the projected property tax revenues could be negated by the county services the residents in the development will require ongoing. This is not to mention any county infrastructure improvements that may be required to facilitate this development.
Pope Francis suggests we follow two well known precepts: love God (Yahweh/Allah) and love our neighbor. Even if one does not espouse the former, we can all practice the latter.
Just as children need to be reminded to say “please” and “thank you,” adults need to hear messages of not only “work hard,” “be kind” and “be patient,” but now, with our culture, even “be courteous,” and “be responsible,” and maybe even “be self-reliant.”
A successful businessman once said “Don’t bring me problems for solutions. Bring me solutions for approval.” I agree.
If you are old enough to have a pet, then be responsible enough to take care of their mess.
As a member of the Storm Water Authority I believe the adoption of these revisions would be in the best interests of the ratepayers/taxpayers as well as in the best interests of Gwinnett County from an ongoing maintenance standpoint.
My wife and I have had season tickets with the Aurora since our first experience there as guests of Emory Morsberger for “Annie Get Your Gun.” We have never been disappointed. Certainly some productions were more appealing than others, but overall, the Aurora continually provides theatre at its best.
It is difficult to watch people neglecting their children, but I don’t see how putting more rules and demands (extrinsic motivation) will cause the parents to be more concerned and caring (intrinsic motivation) for their own children.
Regarding Peachtree Corners lowering the cost of trash pickup (“Peachtree Corners residents’ trash cost gong down,” Aug. 11, 3C), it is truly amazing that most of Gwinnett households pay mandatory pricing of $18.88 per month for an assigned hauler (billed in advance via annual property tax bill), while a small community within our county can offer weekly pickup with more features at $11.50 per month.
I personally support these cameras because it makes our kids safer at school bus pick up and drop-off zones . But one thing we can all agree on is that we should not be doing business with vendors with suspect track records.
One of my grandsons stayed with us Saturday and Sunday. Since he recently turned 11 and is a baseball fan, my wife and I decided to take him the Gwinnett Braves game on Saturday.
So far as I am concerned, Mexico can cry me a deep river. I am tired of taking in Mexico’s problems thus allowing Mexico to avoid having to address their deep internal social and economic problems. As for you employers who lust for cheap labor at the cost of us American tax-payers, please don’t call your self patriotic Americans.
Nate McCullough’s column (“Upscale dorm room an oxymoron,” Aug. 9, 8A) about his experiences moving into his dorm at UGA had me laughing out loud to myself. Kids these days are so pampered, mine included.
