Officals Taking Us For a Ride

Category: Talk — clifford_gordon @ 12:29 pm

Welcome back Larry. Hope your feeling better man. Well it’s been a long time but I’m back. There are so many new topics going on in the world and Bainbridge til I can’t count. The latest is this double taxation of taxpayers in Bainbridge.

It seems our trusted officals have been taking us for a ride again. It’s sad that we can’t trust anybody to look out for our well-being. It seems every time we turn around there’s something else we’ve got to pay taxes for and then we find out that we’ve been over taxed for services we don’t even get.We as the taxpayers of Bainbridge need to wake up and stop being taken on this ride and hold people accountable like they hold us.

Some of these people should be fired. If you and I did some of the things our so-called policians do we would lose our jobs. But we continue to put our trust in these people and they let us down with greed and looking out for there buddies. You no it and I no it but we turn a blind eye to this every day. It’s not a world of what you no it’s who you no. A prime example is taking a look a our roads. It’s mighty strange that certain areas of Bainbridge have better roads than others. It’s because certain areas have do nothing representation by our city and county officals. They sit up there at city hall with there pompous ass and look down on others that elected them and do nothing as long as no-one complains. You no it’s true and they no it’s true. It’s time that this attitude stops and we have the power. The power is in the Vote. Something that many of us are afraid of. It’s time to stop taking things at face value and hold these people accountable. These are just a few thoughts off the top of my head for right now but I will be back.

I no some of you are saying he’s back complaining about everything but if I don’t do it who will. It will be business as usual if I don’t say anything. Some of you might like that but I don’t so be ready. I’m turning the heat up again.

lets see some action

Category: Talk — citizen @ 1:39 pm

I am tired of hearing about a skate park, lets see some action.

And furthermore, where’s a baseball field the kids can just go and play on when they want,and is not locked up all the time. Some of my best memories are having a game on Sat. afternoons with my friends at the Boat Basin. Why not have a field that can be used anytime. Do for the kid’s

Gas Prices

Category: Talk — citizen @ 1:37 pm

I am trying real hard to understand why gas is about 30 cents higher here in Bainbridge than it is in Cairo. This is not cool at all. I am getting my gas from Cairo and any other place I travel to. The gas in Tallahassee, and Havana is also cheaper than Bainbridge. It is interesting how all the surrounding counties gasoline is going down…while Bainbridge continues to hold at 3.37/3.38. Gasoline is 3.05 to 3.11 in Cairo.

In response to: “DJJ Investigators warned by About Unfinished Cases.”

Category: Talk — citizen @ 6:00 am

My comment: Our nation’s children are being prosecuted for breaking the law because Dept. of Juvenile Justice refuses to join with Dept. of Family & Children Services in working with parents to help with children who break the law. Who do you think are responsible for raising children. Yes you are correct, parents are responsible. So how did the nation come up the idea to prosecute a child without finding out what’s going on within the home?

A Sorry State …

Category: Talk — post @ 5:12 pm

Some of these people have a mental illness and some have mental illness with drug dependency. Many mentally ill are homeless and commit crimes. After Southwestern State Hospital is closed the problem may get a lot worse.  The mentally ill are often paranoid and delusional. Jails do not work for these people.  They may be mentally ill but they still have the drive to survive.

It is a sorry State we live in that is going to leave S.W. Georgia with no reprieve for the mentally ill.  These community based care home will only give them doors with no locks.  This way they can wonder around in the community and you do not know who they are.  They will look for a way to survive and or listen to the voices in their head.  Does this sound like a problem to you? I think it is.  I work with these people every day and many are dangerous when off their medication.  So in closing,  ” Coming soon to a neighborhood near you”, the mentally ill will be in the communities you live in.

County Employees

Category: Talk — post @ 11:43 am

It has come to my attention that several of our county employees live outside the county like in Grady county.And some how the county warrants letting them drive county vehicles home at the tax payers costs.Last week I read where they are going to raise the property tax by 1.5 mill. This is BULL!!

Why is it every time the county needs money they raise property tax? Why does the people in the county that work and try to have something always have to foot the bill? Why not raise sales tax so everybody that spends a dollar gets to pay a share of the tax? Not just the people that owns property.And far as the county employees that drives county cars home that lives in another county…Don’t anybody pay my way back and forth to work so why should the county.

Father Arrested in Infants Death

Category: Talk — kindness-matters @ 7:25 pm

Every time a see a headline or an article about child abuse it makes me physically sick. What adult finds pleasure in hurting an innocent, helpless child? When are we going to punish these inhumane monsters like they should be punished? Don’t give him/her a headline. The crime will never stop until the punishment is severe enough to deter the criminals. And “no” it will never “end”, but you could make one huge dent in it if all the “followers” and “copy cats” KNEW what price they would pay. I am so glad for this child that the pain is over, the tears have been wiped away…but a life was lost too soon…this child could have made a difference in the world. THIS CHILD DID MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD! Now it’s just a name, a headline, a story to one day be forgotten…while the scum that snuffed out this innocent life waits to see if we will feed him three hot meals a day, let him lift some weights, play some b-ball, watch some TV. No justice for the victim! When is enough, enough? I pray that all those involved in the prosecution of this monster will look at him like it was their child he murdered!

Support needed for bainbridge skatepark

Category: Talk — mcd87 @ 7:23 pm

For the past 6 years the city of bainbridge has pland to build a skatepark for the kids in this town but still no progress. What I don’t understand is why do we have new baseball fields, soccer fields, and basketball courts and no skatepark? Half or less of the basketball courts could’ve been use for our skatepark, don’t you think? Im 100% positive there will be more kids skating everyday and night. I want to make this project happen, so any and all comments on this post will help move forward with what the city of bainbridge has promised our youth for the past 6 years so let’s make this happen

Someone needs to run against her and get her off the board. Sorry, but she is out of touch with the issues that face us as Decatur county citizens…

Ripped Off

Deb Writes

As a person who was robbed after hiring a person to clean my house I am putting this warning out to others in this community.  Always keep valuables locked or have a camera system because these people can steal from you and get by with it just because they say they did not do it.  I am one who found out the hard way…

County Heads Into the Sewer

Category: Talk — Larry @ 11:00 pm

Decatur County government took a sharp turn into the sewer on Tuesday morning, in several different ways as Commissioner CT Stafford assumed the County Commision Chair for 2012.

Not only did they revert to the old days of hiding discussions they fear the public hearing(more below), and not caring if anyone knows they did so, but they abandoned any Decatur County residents who have a septic tank. On Tuesday morning, Decatur County Commissioners voted 5-1, with Commissioner Mosely voting no, to suspend accepting sewer tank pump out waste at the Decatur County sewage plant.

A Sad Reflection

Category: Talk — post @ 11:00 pm

kindness-matters writes

It is such a sad reflection on our town that it takes a man losing his life to get a thief off our streets! What is it with these repeat offenders? Put them in jail and leave them there or show them the county line and put a price on them if they come back into Decatur County!
