Reason 1 year ago on OUR VIEW: Policy is changing on anonymous online commenting

Interesting. The media outlets you mention (none 12) are being put in place by nationally read examples, where the topics are less homegrown with comments, from folks abroad. The commenters in that type of format may not have insight and first-hand knowledge to local news items. A good bit of information is made public, by a public affairs representative of some sort. Locally, for the last half decade, there have been topics that have not made Gwinnett look very well in the political decision making process. At times, it has been refreshing to see public comment as a sideline to the actual articles, without commenters being mean to one another. However, if you are a news outlet, you should take the time to remove comments when they get out of hand. So, what you are in effect saying is, you are too lazy to do this anymore and will take an extra step to make the readers do something you should be doing on your own... What a disappointment, GDC. I kind of thought you were above that, I would have expected it from a national chain, not the local news. I understand your not wanting to see a readers feelings hurt by another reader. I just hope as a local news outlet, that the concern for a commenter, or tax paying citizen, equals that of a sponsor, or something of the like. In the future, if the article needs and deserves public comment in an open format, the public voice shall be heard, somewhere....So sad it may no longer be here. This way was a good way, worts and all. Reasonably, yours. P.S. Now I know how the old timers felt, when Ludlow was replaced by Neal, on 750.

Reason 1 year ago on Kaufman describes vision of 'community of tomorrow' for Gwinnett

"A community of tomorrow that sings". Wasn't that a Coke commercial? @Sheepdog blue, a recent article on commission planning for next year, is not looking too good for an appearent 5th year, without raises? Yikes!

Reason 1 year ago on Leaders call for sales tax referendum in November

Don't count on making internet purchases tax free if you live in Ga, for very long. Poor, Keverton. This is not the only news topic he has struggled with. At least we can count on him for consistency.

Reason 1 year ago on Former Disney star Lee Thompson Young dead at 29

The track record for kids on Disney Programs has not been too good lately. What kind of working environment are they being exposed, leading to all manners of tragedy in their lives? What is going on at the Disney Corporation. It is certainly not the same type of American entertainment quality that it used to be. But, what is anything coming out of hollyweird worth a hoot, nowadays?

Reason 1 year ago on Grayson City Council to continue working with Partnership Gwinnett

$3,000 and all I got was a lousy demographic map. Did the county get one too? I bet they already had one stashed away, somewhere... Ba-Dum-Bum/Cymbal Crash... No SPLOST, no upgrades for the cities. You guys got any of that SDS money left? Might need it for a non rainy day.

Reason 1 year ago on OUR VIEW: Make your voice heard on SPLOST

Do not vote for it and see what happens. The level of ignorance on display is truly amazing.

Reason 1 year ago on City, county leaders sign SPLOST agreement

Yea, don't vote for the renewal of this. You will be begging for it back, when your subdivision streets are cracked and potholed, with no funds to repair them. What a bunch of twits.

Reason 1 year ago on New York Times sells Boston Globe to Red Sox owner

Most papers and news outlets suffer from this, since the beginning of reporting news to the a...masses. Fish on!

Reason 1 year ago on Chamber to put on second annual Button Down Dash

Not a fan of the Chamber of Cheese. However, it is nice outreach to worthwhile charities.
