"Septem Tired The 72 years old his younger years (like lots of other presidents) but give him a break not votes: 11 iR orter What do you call someone who takes a lot from the government, even as that someone refuses to put their fair share into the pot? Apparently, you call that person Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate for governor. Yep, ole Stacey got caught with her curls down by the Atlanta Journal Constitution. They reported on Tuesday that she's a leader in the state legislature, and not in a good way. No, she's in the Top 5 among lawmakers in the number of days she daims to do work out- side of the 40-day session. Each day she claims allows herto collect $173 in daily expenses from the state treasury. In 2011 she daimed an unbelievable 155 days of non-session work, allowing her to pocket $26,815 in addition to her $18,000 per year salary as a part-time legislator. Well it's good to see them Democrats are winning at something. Now, maybe Abrams is just working extra hard at law-making and deserves that bonus pay. Maybe. After all, she pays taxes into the coffers like the rest of us. Except, she doesn't. It's well known that Abrams owes the IRS $54,000, even as she loaned her campaign for governor $50,000. Apparently, getting power is more important to her than paying her taxes. Look, Abrams seems like a nice lady. She has a nice smile. But her socialist ideas are bad, and her own personal ethics seem even worse. We ain't real keen on her opponent Brian Kemp. He apparently owes people money too. But at least he pays his taxes before his lenders. We're gonna have to vote for him. It's a matter of self-defense.

She invites everyone to "Come by and say 'hello!'" at 51 W. Johnston Street, just off the downtown square. Customers will find special gifts, clothing, jewelry, home decor and, of course, monogram- ming. Bramlett said that one of her favorite things about having a business in Forsyth is the small town atmosphere, where every- one knows one another. She knows that customers will be delighted when they check out her low prices, and it is important to her that customers are satisfied with their shop- ping experience. Future plans for Home- town Treasures Mono- grams & Gift Shop are to grow with Forsyth.

The plan to bring Plant Scherer to Monroe County was actually started in the mid-1970s, and Williams did not take office as a commissioner until 1981. 109D Pmr01R0ad ply and manage }our account online CREEKSIDE SUBDIVISION LOTS Build To Suit 1-2 Acre Lots Great Schools Private Living FIBER INTERNET-suRF, STREAM, EMAIL AND WORK FROM HOME LIKE NEVER BEFORE POWERED BY 100% FIBER NETWORK!!
