I was wondering about that also. It seems the county is the one who uses the convention center theRead Morem ost. We should be able to see the data. I believe that creating additional parking was a good idea, but I think there has to be justification for the expenditure for the Convention Center other than someone assuming it would be a good idea. As a homeowner who is facing a higher tax bill since the county decided only homeowners should have to foot the bill for the fire department and animal control, it's not to much to ask to see how our money is being used.

I, too, think the Dollar General Store at Cedar Mountain will serve the area well. The closest DGRead Moreto the area is at Mirror Lake or at Walmart shopping center in Douglasville. However, I hated to see all those trees cut😟

I saw this on Moon Rd Powder Springs Ga. A nice man had stopped to help a turtle who was in theRead Moreroa dway. He moved the turtle to the other side of the road. No one minded waiting. We were all glad to see god's creature saved from a car that might come by before he could make it across the road. Thanks Sir who ever you were.

You can get the same treatment free from AA,NA,CA,EA,SA, so don't get roped into these so-calledRead Moretre atment facilities, so make money off your misery of substance abuse

You can and you are quite right, However most in active addiction or alcoholism are too fogged toRead Moreha ve the clarity of making a conscious decision to turn their will and their life over to Him^ . The point is Florida Recovery is enormous and there are a lot of like minded people when it comes to recovery. They need to be with people with time and the same goals of achieving long term sobriety or clean time. I hate to be cliche but if you hang out in a barber shop long enough you get a haircut. If you stay in the same area expecting different results. You better have a strong will in which you wouldn't need treatment at all, but if you are walking out the door to the dope man on the corner knowing full well that your a dope head with addictive traits and you haven't already changed the perspective of who you are and started acting accordingly, then you're probably going to go back to dope. We just want to be helpful to anyone needing it. thankyou for your comment though...
