    Is the visioning group a 501.C?  Guess the reason they are holdng everything in Fayetteville is because they are democrats..Anything Bob Ross is involved in I boycott. If Fayette County taxpayers pay for anything the Chamber of Commerce or Visioning Group does shame on the county commission for funding them

    Past Huddleston Elementary toward the lake/spillway beware that sight lines are very short for those of us turning off of Fishers Luck Dr.   ESPECIALLY when you are going 50+ easily...the speed limit is only 30.  Happened again today with a late model brown Ford Expedition....please be careful.   The city might should look at trimming a few bushes back.

    Not sure about that suggestion odoylerules.  I would not want a grumpy old man sentenced to a playground for therapy or punishment. Now Desoto State Park would be another story.

    apologies - my reply was in response to zerpsed's faulty logic and faulty math in his incorrect assertion that a US resident has a better chance of winning the lottery than being shot.  I really should stay off these boards!

    All Children Who Do Not Live Here Playground
    Wow, going for the title of grumpiest old man on the grumpy old man blogs?
    Parks are meant to be enjoyed by all  - regardless of where you live - like, you know, every state and national park as an example. Or Line Creek or the Ridge. Or Central Park. Or Centennial Olympic Park. Or like every park ever made in the history of the world.
    Children and familes enjoy the All Children's Playground and each other's company. They enjoy getting outside, meeting new people and giving their kids a nice experience. You enjoy nothing but wallowing in your own misery and moaning. 
    Maybe you need to go sit at a park or a playground, chill out and get your act together.

    I see obama and the DOJ are gearing up to allow more felons to walk because they are somehow "disadvantaged" and can't pay bail to get out of jail.

    <p>The bedwetters state ""Fixed bail schedules that allow for the pretrial release of only those who can play, without accounting for the ability to pay," the government said, "unlawfully discriminate based on indigence." It's not discriminatory if it applies to everyone. This is just more of Obama's attempt to turn America into a third world country. He would rather have people that have been caught breaking the law out on the street rather than keep law abiding citizens protected from them.

    Listening to prepared statements from each candidate, then having each sponsor throw out softball questions for each candidate to answer is not my idea of a spending my time wisely.  Until these groups agree to open the floor for the hardball questions, I'd rather spend time with the family or clean the lint from the dryer.  You won't see me this time.

    Lake Peachtree Fountain in the lake!!!!!
     
    Really? What next?  A boardwalk and casino and amusement park?  Ocean City boat parades?   Does it light up at night with a rainbow of colors?  Does it have piped in music lilke the Bellagio?  Does it dance? 
     
    So nice to see the sod, the GREEN SOD, going down on duck field.  After how many thousands was spent on grass seed and watering to feed the goose and duck flocks?  And the black rubber liner that is wrinkled and floating up on water's edge of All Children Who Do Not Live Here Playground is a lovely touch.  So the 2 foot wide patch of sandbox sand does not get weeds?  Is that it? Check again.
     
    A hint here, no shoes or even walking will be allowed on duck field for the dragon festival next month.  If caught messing up a piece of newly laid sod, you get to spend a week following the nutty couple who were out again tonight at Battery Park.  The ones who cover the registration number with the blankie and she has a disgusting mix of goop in that container on the back that she usually feeds the masses of ducks and geese.  However, tonight, she brought her black doggie with her and he was goosing the geese.  Yeah, you get to follow them for a week and report in what you see.  Keep the dragon festival and boats out at Lake McIntosh or sell the ripped up sod for a buck a foot.

    Why is vision getting involved in politics?  Are they sharing any of the expense to put this on?

    Brown making progress, jb                                         That WFB (aka Veterans Pkwy) is within 1500 feet of being finished. Seems like a lot, but no bridge or property acquision is needed. 14 years ago the same s. brown was mayor of PTC and he spent $850k (plus interest on a 20-year finance at 8%) and that didn't include the land on the other side (another $850k) or the construction of the bridge (maybe $2million). But that 1500 feet of unfinished WFB is only going to be a portion of the $1million per mile it takes to build roads like that - maybe $450k. 
     
                                                                                        See how the boy wonder is improving with his spending decisions? Gotta make you proud District One peoples. He was certainly a Democrat, but now that his spending seems under control, he might be a Republican soon. You know what they say - liberal until you start paying taxes at 30, then conservative. That assumes people with real jobs, so maybe he's a late bloomer at 40 by now and finally maturing. Hope so.
     
                                                                                         Moving along to the election in November- sure he's going to support the liberal Dem opposing Maxwell. He hates Maxwell, loves liberalism and will clearly ally with him or her (whatever that Dem candidate is) and the incumbent District 5 affirmative action commissioner. - Charles R. That's a sure path for him to be chairperson again. BTW, that would then be 3 Dems running Fayette County because Brown can pivot faster than anyone you have ever seen - you ready for that? Up to only you, people in Barlow's District (which is actually Maxwell's district now). Maxwell's unless you lose it through neglet or indifference. Be careful. 
                                                                                          Of course this November we have a huge turnout because of Hill vs. Trump and Fayette County will turn out 80% Republican and about 20% Democrat, so all will be fine.
     
                                                                                                    Just print this out a take it with you when you hear Brown or his candidate speak and see if any of what he says makes sense unless you look at it through my template. Power corrupts the corruptible. Absolute power is worse.

    What do expect from a guy who was NAACP Man of the Year, wrote a diatribe about all that opposed district voting as a bunch of backwoods bigots until getting a real beat-down in two elections and then changing his tune, was against TDK Blvd, then for it, then against it. Can you say "career politician with no principles?"

    How hard would it be to hold a candidate forum for any position, at any time, anywhere BUT in Fayetteville?   Peachtree Ciy has the largest population, the most traveled two highways, and meeting room venues up the ying yang.  Is this because the visioning, c of c, naacp and two parties are all based in Fayetteville?  Is this the ultimate in laziness or the we have always done it this way mentality?  Or is there a more underhanded, unspoken reason to not offer these forums to those who live in or closer to PTC?

    Steve Brown sits on his duff until there are some re zonings and now lets but a hold on everything for 6 months. That is nuts!!!!  If this was really a problem why didn't Brown bring this up 3-4 years ago. Could have taken all the time Brown needed to "fix" the problem.  Another Knee Jerk reaction by Brown. No vision for the future just react.  We have had enough of Brown's negative knee jerk leadership. It is time to turn the heat up on Brown and analyze each and every item that he brings to the table. Let's start by watching who he supports for Commissioner. He has already said he is supporting the Democrat. Now ain't that jus flat wonderful. Brown supporting a Democrat imagine that. Brown has not accomplished much and I hear he has the City of Fayetteville angry at him again.  Aunt Bee ain't happy and this ain't Mayberry any more. My break is over and back to work.

    Again I say Steve Brown has been sitting on his duff and doing nothing to improve the way re zonings are handled for at least four years.  Steve Brown has done nothing to help improve the land use plan and now low and behold he wants to stop everything for 6 months while he appoints a committee of his buds that will come up with some half baked Brown ideas. Come on now. That is not the way to be proactive. Brown loves to come in and tell everyone there is a problem and then he wants to become the savior with the solution. No Steve we ain't buying that bull any longer. Jesse you are correct the land use plan is only as good as the Commissioners that support it. Brown's Board of Commissioners has failed miseribly. Lets look at the spot zoning that Brown's BOC approved  on Sandy Creek that is now over 1000 acres that is now part of Fayetteville.  Can You SAY HERE COMES the HOOD?  That property was  zoned AR and now it is full blown Commercial.  does that sound like solid support of the land use plan by the Brown team.  Now that is just Peachy.  Anyone that believes Brown can lead  the Commission is just simply wrong. Look at what Brown has Accomplished. He can't even finish Veterans Pkwy and that is only 1500 ft to tie in with 92 at Colemans Store.  Brown has been working on that 6 years. guess it takes a year for every 100ft which means the wait is not over. Brown is supporting the Democrat in the Commission 1 race just as he did when he supported Pota Coston in the District Commission race. Brown is a Democrat and only reason he ran as a republican is to improve his chances of getting elected in Fayette County. Jesse you need to see if Brown has a Hillary sign for President in his yard or on his car. Be Careful and don't drink the Brown Kool Aide or you will be fooled like many before. Aunt Bee ain't happy and this ain't Mayberry anymore. Got to head off to work now.
