“When you run this, you can do it your way”

Hall County Chairman, who will it be? I mentioned before that I am an official member of the armadillo hat club. This club should not be confused with the tin foil hat club. The primary difference between the two conspiracy clubs is that the armadillo club does not think that the federal government is using…

And the Candidates Is…

U.S. House 14 As mentioned, my fellow members of the armadillo hat club have looked at the census numbers and decided that Hall County would be the centerpiece for the new congressional seat. It is a useless exercise to try and predict the size of the district or even who could be in it, but…

Fill out your Brackets

While having coffee this morning discussing the conspiracies of the day with my fellow members of the armadillo hat club, our conversation turned to the elections in 2012. No, not the presidential election, but the local ones. It started with an announcement that one of the members received a fundraiser flyer from someone running for…

Not IT!

Conspiracy in the ranks As a follow-up to yesterday’s rift between the some of the members of the Flowery Branch council (Miller and Richards) and their commissioner, I had asked that you e-mail any information that you may know about the soap opera between the Mayor and Commissioner and I think we have something interesting.

What’s that smell?

Dissension in the ranks I just received an e-mail forwarded to me by a friend in Sterling on the Lake.

What makes this so interesting is that Lutz happens to be…

According to the finance director, “the expectation is we could see percentages of five to ten percent possibly.” Granted it is not the 20% that I speculated, but it is down.

Never Assume the Position

Rumor has it…. I heard a rumor from an inside source that our friends at the Hall County Citizens for Efficient Government (HCCFEG) may pay a visit to a superior court near you to force Hall County to seat their former president, Paul Barns. It was right here on the Truth where I laid out…

Rise Up to Raise Up

What do our politicians do? Over the past couple of days the Gainesville Times has reported that one of our city councils are considering a pay raise and that our officials attend a lot of meetings. I am guessing that the Gainesville Times had set out on a witch hunt, but found that our officials…

A Budget That Won’t Budge

Life as a drunken sailor… I used to say that our politicians spend our money like a drunken sailor; but that would be an insult to all drunken sailors, because at least a drunken sailor stops buying drinks when he runs out of money.  Our Hall County commissioners are in big trouble.  We know that…
