— To the people who live in the eastern part of the county, especially the North McDonough Road area. Let’s see how Griffin feels when we go to Locust Grove to shop. It’s not that far, so let’s send a message.
— To the cruel person who wrote about Ms. Dodd not being with Georgia government. I already knew that, but unfortunately I am not as well-informed as you are, but your Republican commissioner is the one who had these people from Gwinnett County to bring it into a county commission meeting. I am glad my parents raised me better than to call a person an idiot, because of their political beliefs.
— Griffin, it’s time to stop arguing about dogs, NASCAR and bad drivers. We have a real threat to our community, tax base and lifestyle. Developers in Paulding County have proposed a 300-foot-wide toll road that will replace Maddox Road and run right across South Sixth Street. It will run a total of 22 miles through Spalding County and drastically transform the rural quality of our county.
— Is is not surprising that a canine (that is a “dog,” for all you goobers out there) would be a part of the raid on bin Laden. The military and law enforcement having been using canines in operations for many years.
— I would like to inform the My Two Cents contributor of May 11, don’t you know that a front-yard fence would depress your already-depressed property values, besides being quite tacky. When was the last time you saw such? I think it may even be against city code. My complaint is about people that let their dogs run free in a controlled animal area.
— Griffin use to have a very successful downtown shopping area. Highway 155 has run through the city at least the last 60 years. It was not because of trucks downtown that businesses left Griffin. Go to the local shopping centers and you will see a lot of businesses. The city and county now own most of downtown Griffin and the only thing the city has is more government.
— The city is changing the election districts due to a population growth of only 192 people in 10 years?
— The problem with this country is not really “big oil” or “big business,” but big government. Too many people in this country have an entitlement mentality and believe that the government should take care of their every need. Politicians are well aware of this and will promise voters anything in order to be elected.
