It is tragic that this little boy drowned at the day camp, and no way I can imagine the pain that his family feels. This is a nightmare for them. But this little boy's parents chose to send him to a camp that was not licensed or registered with the state, and there are reasons that licenses are required for child care centers, camps, schools, etc.

I understand that the plan for Arnco access to Hwy. 16/U.S. Alt. 27 is to consolidate the Main Street and Lower Glover Road and the one in between them (near Witcher Road) entries to a single location at Witcher Road. I can see that. I also understand that there is no plan for a traffic light. If this is correct, I must ask- are you trying to kill someone?

No work should be done on the proposed bridge to nowhere on Herring Road until a bridge is built at the intersection of U.S. 29 and GA 154. This intersection is a major traffic problem in north Coweta and needs to be addressed yesterday.

I found one bottle in a refrigerated six-pack of diet cola was half-frozen at well above 32 degrees. The other five looked normal. There are industrial chemicals that can raise the freezing point of water-based liquids, such as diet cola. Obviously, I discarded this apparently contaminated bottle.

Democrats are quite pleased with Obamacare. They just want working- class Republicans to pay for it.

Hey, I haven’t amounted to much what with no education and zero ambition, but I do have a Harley- Davidson shirt and loud pipes on my bike cuz I’m starved for attention – so back off.

City cars, new and used, in lots and lots and on roads, along with anonymous white trucks of builders and contractors building on lots of new, too- dense housing lots, eating up our green spaces to draw more people with cars and big-rig trucks. Are we losing our sense of home, leaders? Ah, when real estate and growth becomes king.
