Don 8 months, 3 weeks ago on New agreement forged between Gwinnett government, nonprofit

Well how much were the legal fees for the trash plan case and how much was the settlement for the company that had the exclusive prior to going to court? We will never know the total.

GC*B uses Butch Conway's inmates to staff the Satellite Road center. Really not hard to document when the van shuttling them in shows up everyday.

Look at the bond for the rebuild of the center after the fire. Now look at the lease agreements.

"If you put lipstick on a pig you still have a pig."

I am sorry to hear that the sitting BOC have decided to rejoin with the group that cost taxpayers millions of $$$"s. Connie Wiggins should be lucky to still have a job after the trash debacle.

Hey can I start a business and get prison labor at $0.30 per hour? Can I get the county to build me a facility and do a lease back at cents on the dollar?

I guess what goes around comes around and GC&B is coming back around. Is this the beginning of our old ways in Gwinnett and the BOC?

Plastic gas lines have a copper tracer wire for locating them and when a lightning strike occurs it can burn/melt the plastic.

Obama wants to bans guns yet it it his adminstration and judges that have prosecute fewer gun charges than any other in recent history. His liberal appointed judges just do not want to be called racist when they start charging minorities with the crimes.

R- the way I see it is the trash program should be bringing the county about 2 million per year. Yes I do not agree with it but is should be a real money maker!

I never agreed with the stadium deal but how much can we afford to write off. Bond issue was for 30 million and then the 20 million we gave to fund this. No one in their right mind would offer more than 10 million for the stadium, we are stuck with it.

Wayne Hill has the business sense that we need in the county. I only wish Mr. Hunter was my district commissioner with this type of insight.

Good call and looking for some great things from Wayne in the future, he is a great asset to the county sewer and wate board..

It is all Virgil Williams plan plan, he wanted this long ago. I wonder who he has paid off to get this though?


Don 1 year, 3 months ago on Gwinnett man drowned on Lanier not wearing life jacket

The law does require life jackets to be on a boat but it does not require wearing one. Why should the government regulate having to wear one for adults, it does for children while a boat is underway.

Anyone who boats in the winter and does not wear a type 2 inflatable is asking for trouble no matter how good of a swimmer you are. Hypothermia sets in rather quickly. Cold weather boating also means most people are wearing extra clothing that will help drag them under when wet.

The government should not be in business to help people make the right decisions in life. How many people are killed by crossing a street not in a cross walk? Should the government pay to put fences up on all roads and build a walkway over all roads at the openings?

At some point in life people need to be accountable for their actions.

This is sad and I feel for the family .

The question of concern here is why is this only happening in Buford? IS it that they are placing too much emphasis on youth sports and not enough on medical awareness? It would seem that they need to start a very thorough medical evaluation process prior to playing. I do know they push these kids to the limit in their training starting a a young age. Is winning really worth the lives of our youth we need to ask?

I honestly think Buford needs to wake up and get a grip on what is happening in their town and youth sports High School included).
