Monica Beatty deals a harsh blow to the Dark Side of the Force in Flowery Branch. In a crushing 102 to 73 landslide, Ms Beatty beat Sith Lord Mike Miller’s hand picked candidate. I hear Emperor Andrews is a little stressed too. Ms Beatty, we wish you luck in your new position on the Council.…

Counting to Four

Mike_Miller

Sometimes when I am at forums like the South Hall Republican Club listening to public officials, I can’t help but to think about what I want to write because there are times when it seems like they are addressing me, but I am not allowed to rebut; as was the case this past Tuesday when…

The Tax Man Cometh

MikeMiller

I attended the Flowery Branch City Council meeting tonight to watch them raise my taxes for a 3rd consecutive year by a vote of 3 to 1 with Mayor Mike Miller casting the deciding vote and Councilman Joe Anglin casting the dissenting vote. The issue that I have is that only one person, Councilman Anglin,…

How Did They Do?

The past several years I started keeping the campaign material that I received from candidates. With the resignations of Council Members Gibbs and Richards (Tara), I thought it would be a good time to reflect on some of the campaign promises made.

rumours-album-cover

Ever since the announcement of a special election to replace two Flowery Branch council members and my announcement that I will/will not run, I have wanted to write about the people that have been rumored to be in the running for one of the two positions.

Pay Me, Pay Me Too

Pay me, Pay me!

While on my layoff, I received an e-mail of an e-mail that had me scratching my head a little.  The e-mail seemed innocuous at the time because I lacked context; in fact, when I read it, I wanted to give the Mayor of Flowery Branch a pat on the back for his fiscal conservatism.  It…

When is a Pay Raise not a Pay Raise?

I had a friend in Sterling on the Lake text me a picture of a push card left on his Mailbox for one of the disputed races in Flowery Branch.  My friend’s question concerned the comment about repealing the 70% pay raise.  He wanted to know if the information was true and why he hadn’t…

Spending Hazard in Hall

I grew bored one night last week at the Boar’s Nest while I was waiting for Daisy to finish her shift and I started thinking about the vast amount of blight that exists in Hazzard.  There doesn’t seem to be any shortage of old houses and abandoned businesses clogging up space, that’s for sure.  A…

LOST in another SPLOST

Are you ready for the next round of SPLOST?  Well, ready or not, here it comes.  The cities are starting to get their ducks in a row.  Forget about the fact that Gainesville is suing the County, or the fact that T-SPLOST was hammered in an election last year, the cities look to be positioning…
