I would have thought anyone that is not being driven to and from chicken fights by the Sheriff would be an improvement. I heard this from a general reliable source but do not know if it is true.Either way, it has been a good lesson in how things can always get worse.

OOHHHHH I SEE THEN LINDA THOMPSON AND "FRIENDS" bought THE PROPERTY THAT THEY ARE PUTTING THIS EYESORE ON????? SIGNS ALL OVER ""STAY OFF THE GRASS"" AND THEY DO THIS,LMFAO.....Why does this bit of stupidity not surprise me,I am sure they are paying a good price in "rent" for the space they are taking,that way it will help out the city when the lawsuits start comming in for accidents...After all it costs 5 dollars to get in a public park when they have any kind of ACTIVITY THERE AND DEALERS HAVE TO PAY SOOOOO LINDA SHOULD PAY TOO,AND FROM THE LOOKS OF IT THERE ARE ABOUT 8 TO 10 SPACES SHE IS TAKING UP JUST TO MAKE STUPID HILLBILLIES SHINE IN FANNIN COUNTY!!!!!!
KEEP YOUR EYES AND EARS OPEN I AM SURE THERE WILL BE SOMETHING ELSE THIS FRIGGIN STUPID TO KEEP UP THE STUPIDITY COMPETITION THAT IS GOING ON DOWN TOWN!!!!

The only thing the city should have done is approve the business license and sit back and collect the lease money - should not have paid a dime toward the business.

The ice rink will as the"dead tree that has been removed from down town"a FLOP!!!! If we have a "mild" winter and it doesnt get cold enough to freeze the rink all the way thru then what good will it do,we could put ducks in town that way if we cant skate we can feed the ducks.....the ""mayor"" needs to stop treating blue ridge as her own personal back yard,if she wants to skate buy the field behind the furniture store where she lives and have at it... DONT make the whole damn town pay for HER stupid ideas!!!!!
You don't know what you're talking about--this was not just the Mayor's idea but the businesses downtown supported getting the ice rink here. Private donations paid for it and the city only has to pay the monthly maintenance. If you don't think the city can afford this--think about over 300 people paid Friday to skate--that's $3,000. Saturday was another bannder day. Also, during Thanksgiving week when the kids were out of school, there was over 100 people every day skating. I KNOW-- I take my kids there every day. And what its done for them is they have to work for that $10 so they are asking what they can do to earn money. It's a win-win for the city and the kids. It gives them something to do that doesn't involve alcohol and drugs. And it makes the kids more responsible to earn money to pay for their skates and to skate. Please check into things before you post negative.

A little boy DONE WHAT????? where did you go to school? Thank goodness for the tourist tax money and the money generated by the ice skating rink, perhaps the next generation of kids will have a better command of the english language than you.
A child can fall off a bike and have to go to the hospital. As grandpa would say.some people would not be happy if you hung them with a new rope

Lorac it is one thing for you to express your opinion but it is quite another thing for you to make fun of how someone talks. Yes, it was poor grammar but you were very RUDE to feel that you had to point that out. Could you please explain your reason for being so rude? You should be ashamed of yourself!

HA you must be dreaming that Industry would come here. As soon as a Corporation sees these Topix threads, they say no THANKS.
And lest you forget the Blairsville Topix was on the National news.

The truth is the truth...If you cannot speak the English language you should make it a point to learn.
As a "Retired Legal Secretary" you should know how important it is to be clear when one writes and speaks. I do not feel I was any more RUDE than "Duck" who had the nerve to blame the mayor because a child fell down on the ice.
