The teachers at school, where you were run in on them in the black shirt and pants, talked endlessly about your movie career made jokes about you behind your back.
The kids have been told about your snapping pictures of the cheerleaders. And never using them in the paper. My daughter is grown, was in a dance group at high school, still talks about your stalking them while preforming.
<quoted text>
Norm has been an upstanding member of education committees for as long as I've known him. He has worked with some of the most brilliant educators in north Georgia.

The teachers don't criticize Norm. They're better than that and I hate to see them made to sound irresponsible and petty by a topix gossip. The students are not told ruors that someone started years ago as that would be unprofessional of any teacher. Ugly people have passed your rumor around for decades. I'm hear to tell you, it is false, a lie, and I know one person who loves to perpetuate these rumors.

It appears you might consider going back to school. Your use of vocabulary, spelling, and punctuation tells me you aren't the sharpest tool in the shed.

"Jess" is right Norm. YOU keep doing it to yourself. Have you ever heard the story the Emperors New Clothes? Thats you. You are the only one that doesn't realize everyone is laughing at you. The stories suggesting leering creepiness towards schoolgirls were on here long before I came around. People have hated you for being the Paris lapdog for a lot longer than I've been here. And nobody twisted your arm to moonlight on Topix making up stories about people.
And yes, you are a much better writer than Duncan, and yes Ken West is a wothless piece of disloyal crap in my opinion. And yes, you were an insanely hard worker at the paper as editor. Granted, you used your talent to spin facts, tell lies by ommission, and generally serve the establsihment and not the people - but you did work hard. All th pieces for greatness are there - except one... the Main Ingredient.
Your MISSING ingredient is TRUTH. You could have an amazing career as an investigative journalist. But you will never escape your past until you serve Light. That is the only road to redemption forward Norm.
And yes.... Paris is afraid of you. He's afraid of you because you do write well. And you know a lot of things. But Norm - my guess is he dreads having to be around you. You are an unpleasant embarrasment to him.
Norm.... take the 1st step out of darkness, and admit to yourself that you are powerless to go back in time to change the things you have done, but that going forward you will do the right things. And it may take a while, and you may have to make some amends along the way - but in the end you will find friends, loyalty and respect.

Norm has some faults - so do we all.

But do this: Put his magazine side by side with that zeroxed thing you put out and compare them. Which one is professionally designed, written and edited? Certainly not yours! Which one was a financial success? Yours? No, you had to beg for donations. Norm's magazine was chock full of advertisements. Hey, at least Norm set out to publish a magazine and he accomplished that goal. How many times, over and over and over, did you post about how your were going to start a newspaper? Time after time and time again. Still haven't done it yet, have you? One little zeroxed edition doesn't really count, and it certainly didn't look, read or resemble a newspaper in any other way.

Face it, the court battle with Norm only showed what you really are. How at about 50 you were living with your parents with no solid job or means of income, children in tow, living on public assistance and a monthly allowance from your mommy and daddy. At least Norm, in all his flaws, has managed to buy his own home and support himself.

As I said earlier - its really sort of sad watching you publicly being sent out to lick Norm affectionately in the hopes that you can placate him.

You sound a bit tired too. You've lost some of your zing. Like you don't have your heart in it. You don't like sucking up to Norm I think. Does it make you ill? Like you need a bath? Get used to it lapdog. Its part of your job description. Now suck it up and get back to licking before Norm figures it all out.

What's sad is watching a grown man with children playing on Topix all day and not supporting his family. While it may be fun and self-important to play the "savior of the world" jabbering along about the end of the world and such foolishness, most responsible people get out, get jobs and support their families.

Can you truly say that you are supporting your children? Do you have a real job? I'm not talking about pretending to be a publisher with a "newspaper" that comes out one a year? Neither is pretending to be a whistleblower / activist (agitator, more appropriately) a real job.

Seriously, Norm, with all his flaws and mistakes, makes you look incredibly silly.

Another bad day at the market. Also, recently filed financials show continued decreases in revenue. UCBI needs revenue streams, and their market is in one of the hardest hit real estate areas - with a heck of a lot of shadow inventory that will continue to drag on sales and building. That means no loan activity, downward pricing pressure, more foreclosures, etc.. The fundamentals don't look good.

One of the only reasons they don't look worse is inflated stock price propped up by New York investors that are milking the profits. The dropping stock price could make for an ugly financial number at some point, which could feed a swift and ugly selling spree.

Again, it is about fundamentals, and it is clear that soon we'll see more bank sacrifices. I see no saving market grace that saves UCBI in hte next round.

Of all the banks in Union County UCB is the ONLY one that hasn't been taken over or sold multiple times. They provide decent paying jobs for alot of locals. Sure, they've took chances and made mistakes but guess what? They're a BUSINESS and in business you have to take chances if you really want to succeed. I'm not fond of some of the bigwigs there myself but they're the best we've got in this area. They have came thru for me time and time again when the other banks wouldn't.

I think to underscore a point it is time to bring back "The Comparison".

UCBI is a member of the NASDAQ stocks. It is also a bank stock. Other bank stocks one might look to to get an idea of the sector might include:

Bank of America (BAC); Branch Bank & Trust (BBT); Synovus (SNV); or Suntrust (STI).

I've made some comments recently about the banking sector still being in serious trouble. Primary reason still being real estate problems hanging over the market, plus the fact that revenue streams are really challenging for these banks.

So lets look at the Trading Results for these stocks since March 21:

The NASDAQ has been..... DOWN 1.21%
BBT has been.......... DOWN 5.13%
STI has been.......... DOWN 5.23%
SNV has been.......... DOWN 6.16%
BAC has been.......... DOWN 13.70%

UCBI has been....... DOWN 22.01%

So - this is based on general fundamentals continuing to trend downward for the banks. But UCBI is doing MUCH worse than the general sector. Do you know why?

Downaward trend continued today: Friday May 30:

The NASDAQ..... DOWN 0.13%
BBT .......... UP 0.08%
STI .......... UP 0.42%
SNV .......... UP 0.04%
BAC .......... DOWN 0.07%

UCBI ....... DOWN 0.97%

UCBI is solidly the biggest loser, with a continued flat to negative. After losing almost 95% of their value since 2008, they were propped up, but that looks like it is over. I must admit I am impressed with the huggling act, but I feel that as support continues to leave this bank, and as fundamentals continue to worsen in their revenue model, the laws of economics will pull this one down.

Employees got their paychecks, loans were made for cars and maybe a couple new homes today. The local economy was helped a bit by those actions. Thankfully Gods will was done.

PS... they are already rolling this out in mass in the U.S. They are basically automating ATM's with interactive screens, and the ability to conduct almost any business you would inside a bank - right at an ATM - with a live person "On Screen".

These units are very expensive. Banks that are incredibly leveraged like UCBI will have a hard time keeping up. Smaller rural banks will have a hard time keeping up. The big corporate banks will be installing these in rural towns and taking customers.

And bank employees, just like in so many other industries, will be replaced by machines.

Humans are expedable under the new world corporate regime... and no place is immune. The interesting thing is... people in small towns think they are isolated from all of this,and yet it has already taken a toll. Your jobs are all gone, and soon the largest employer will be gone.

It's all simply fundamentals of things at work. No magic. Just the facts, the economics of why United Community Bank is going to die, and the town with it. You'll just be left with no jobs and a lot of debt.

blocked post due to link I think. Here is the excerpt:

"Intelligent machines could replace human bank staff in high street branches within five years, the Telegraph has learnt.

Several major banks are understood to be in talks to introduce "express" branches, which would be similar to self-service checkouts in supermarkets. These smaller outlets would be almost completely devoid of human interaction.

If trials are successful, the new format is likely to be adopted across Britain, sources said, with larger branches slimmed down and staff numbers reduced in branches.

Martin Shires of banking technology firm NCR said: "As early as next year, you could see one of the major high street banks buying a convenience store location and fitting it out with ATMs that mean you can do 95pc of your transactions through self-service. Within five years this will be a common sight."

He said technology is now so advanced that all transactions could be screen-based, enabling banks to replace over-the-counter staff and leave just supervisors in branches. ".
The one part bears repeating: The "technology is now so advanced that all transactions could be screen-based, enabling banks to replace over-the-counter staff and leave just supervisors in branches."

It amazes me that no one ever refutes what this man says. It is always some remark about jjob, family,,kids, record or anything in his personal life but never denying what he says as being true. Now to me that means that he is right and no one can deny it. This seems to be true whether it be UCB or Paris or who ever. Now that is just my thought on it but doesn 't it make sense that if he is right. If he is wrong why not say he is wrong and put forth why he is wrong. Stuff like they paid their employees and made a car loan and a home loan today doesn't refute anything. It doesn't take a real genius to know that United is on the slide. They have managed to stop that slide before and they may do it again lbut give everyone some credible answer or just stay quite..

No I play golf all day with ole Goofy Golfer. I bet money on the game and he is such a poor golfer I win enough to pay my bills. He goes off and makes some stupid commercial and then we play golf again. I'm getting tired of taking his money. Maybe you would like to play one day. I may have to eat at home tonight .

Not only are you the most negative person I've ever seen, you must have mental problems. No wonder you can't keep a job. Who can make any sense out of your moronic ramblings?
