Last week, the county commissioners voted 3-2 to keep alive the possibility of regularly scheduled commercial flights in and out of the local airport.
It’s too early to make a short list for the March 15 special election that will fill the void left by Charles Bannister’s resignation as the Gwinnett County Commission chairman. Still, folks are talking about who can lead Gwinnett out of its malaise.

I'm looking out my office window. It's dark out. Not just dark, but pitch-black dark. The kind of dark that swallows oak trees and makes buildings disappear and reduces motor vehicles to a pair of white dots coming and red lights going. Let's be clear: It's dark and it's only 6:15 p.m.
About six months ago, I used this space to give my take on the newspaper industry and how it relates to us here at the Daily Post.
Gwinnett County commissioners come and go, but not at that quick a pace. In the last 10 years, 10 different names have been inscribed on the nameplates in the commissioners' meeting room. Potentially, if each candidate would have been one term and out, that number could have been 25.
