So its snowing like mad outside, roads are horrible. There are accidents everywhere, people sliding off of roads because they haven't been salted. Its sad that 3-4 accidents had to happen before the first truck was ever dispatched and even then, they had a very small amount of salt. Why isn't salt being used more?

Oh that's right, you didn't buy anymore salt from the last snow because you were too damn busy lining your own pockets and wasting money on things that are less important than what is best for the citizens of the county.

I'm so sick of the most basic of things eluding you because you are all about politics and doing favors for friends. Yeah you may have done a few decent things, but overall, your job performance is horrid.

Its not just about the salt either, there are many things that you overlook because it doesn't benefit you and one day, its gonna bite you in the ass and Ill be the one there laughing like crazy about it.

You sir, are ignorant and I cant wait until your term is up. I will promise you one thing, you will NOT have a 2nd term. Mark my words. I have never seen such a worthless PoS for a commissioner. People thought volrath and bruce were bad, but you make both of them look like Gods.

check out what he's doing to get his little lacky Stanford elected to post two. Maybe he knows he's on his way out and wants Stanford in there to carry on. Simonds leads Stanford around like a little baby. Takes him everywhere he goes. Stanford don't knos S*** about anything and lets Simonds do all his talking. Remember this when you go vote. If you get rid of Simonds in two years and he has his homeboy in there it'll just be like Simonds is still running things. Think about this when you vote. Get Simonds out. Keep Stanford from gettin in.

I have noticed that and a lot of people are talking. Simonds sure is Standford's mouthpiece. Don't hear squat from Standford but Simonds is out telling everybody who listens that he wants him in there. Something don't smell right here. Standford comes up here from Atlanta and thinks he can step right in. Don't think so. No body knows anything about him. And he works for the state anyway. Already getting paid for that. We don't need another Simonds. Get rid of Simonds next time and get somebody else in there.

Complain...Complain...Complain ! You people continually posting this crap never change. You bitched when Richard Stanley was Chairman. You bitched when Cline Bowers was Chairman. You bitched when Vollrath was Chairman. You bitched when Howie Bruce was Chairman. You are still bitching now that Bill Simonds is Chairman. You elected them all but you are never satisfied. What's the matter? Didn't they scrape your driveway or wouldn't they give a county job to one of your idiot relatives who couldn't find his/her butt with both hands? You constant bitchers are the folks who cost us the Walmart that went first to East Ellijay and next to Blairsville. You are the reason why industry won't come here and there are few good jobs available. Industry does not locate in counties ith an unstable political situation like the continuous one in Fannin! They require stability in government ...not constant upheaval. You are a bunch of malcontents who are not a part of the solution. You are the problem! The minute you put someone in office you start working hard to get them out. Nothing here is going to improve because you simply will not let it. So if you want to blame the ones responsible for the problems in Fannin County...blame yourselves! Shame on you all!

Supposedly, the group that will decide the future location of Project Orchard will view the property, according to the News Observer. I am sure the little two lane highway will help them decide if the land is appropriate for a major company, supplying 200 jobs.

I guess it depends on who you are on whether or not you get bailed out or not. Just wait till the next chairman is in and Bill Simonds is out the next election. All I have to say is What goes around comes around and just wait Mr. Chastain it will come back around one day.....You don't lie Mr. Simonds and get by either so enjoy your remaining term. There is another candiate just waiting to get your position. Ha Ha have fun while it lasts.

The property bought and being considered for the future site is across from Tri-state electric coop. Supposedly, the site for Project Orchard has been narrowed down to 4 possibilities, including this site. It is on an old 2 land highway. Within the county, it is thought of as a buddy deal. Only time will tell.
