Sunday alcohol sales proposal heads to Senate and Rogers: Sunday alcohol issue to be revived ...
Jack at West Oaks wrote - It's time for Georgia to move out of the Dark Ages and stop allowing religious groups to impose their narrow views on all of society. There's no reason why I shouldn't be allowed to purchase a bottle of wine for dinner just because someone else is in church.
Changing Parties wrote - I've got to remember to tell all my friends and family not to vote for Chip Rogers. We are traditionally Republicans, but it seems our party is getting way out of touch with the average citizen.
Traditional American wrote - Of course some customers at grocery stores and convenient stores have been "clamoring" for the change, drunks and alcoholics get pretty testy on Sunday when they can't buy their booze. I had a friend once tell me that a liquor stores' best customers are the local lawyers and politicians. Must be true.
Against Sunday Sales wrote - If a person does not have the foresight to buy his booze on Saturday, and enough of it to last until Monday, then he has problems that new laws and legislation cannot cure. If a person is so desperate for a drink that he cannot wait until Monday, he needs to seek help.
Survey: Cherokee's homeless population in hundreds ...
So Sad wrote - In a county with a church on every corner, there should be no homeless, or hungry or lonely. Quit building mega-complexes to tout your own success and sell your belongings and give those more needy. Read all about in First John.
One Bobrop 2 wrote - There are many houses in Cherokee County that are empty; most of them are under foreclosure and owned by banks. Why do the banks make the owners move out? They should let the owners live in the houses and charge them rent they could afford. That would be better than let them standing empty and deteriorating and losing value. There shouldn't be as many homeless as we have with as many empty houses we have
Dee Osborne wrote - I read that someone thought tearing down foreclosed homes would be a solution to the housing problems we face. Why not let the homeless have them? Seems like such a waste to bulldoze a perfectly good home so some corporation somewhere can make a profit.
Ex-officer sentenced in death, cover-up...
Matt R. wrote - Four years - are you kidding me?
Disbelief Jr. wrote - Not enough time. If Kenneth Reda was really trying to hide an affair, why did he send his girlfriend off with evidence and try to repair the boat?
Not Surprised wrote - Four years for lying to the police and a boating under influence death? You have to remember, the judges, the prosecutors, and the law enforcement people all eat from the same trough. Sort of a "you wash my back, and I will wash your situation."
T. Teeps wrote - Are you kidding me? A murder... alcohol... cop... and only four years in prison? A person who robs a store and nobody gets hurt and the robber walks away with $244 is sentenced to 10 years in prison? Something is wrong with this pic, for sure.
Unsure KSMS wrote - Odd the SWAT Brent Stephens had blunt impact trauma, with abrasions on his scalp, leg, forearm and wrist. Other reports have noted broken ribs; the other two, no impact trauma... the whole story still makes no sense! Seems like no truth is really being told. They all were at the right place by there own will (in those three minds) at the wrong time, and what is the real punishment for that except for the people having to live with the guilt? Time means nothing. Sad, sad for everyone. So wrong in so many ways, for everyone. And very heart-breaking for the aftermath, all to have a good time. None of it really seems to make any sense.
