I am from the west coast. I am shocked at the crime and behavior of africian american I mean black community. Where are their parents? They are walking down the street in herds. Where are their parents I ask! If they start holding all parents personally responsible for their childrens behavior maybe things would change! I also had a cousin in the west that if a kid acted out the parent is required to escort the child daily to school until the child decided to straighten up. It usually only lasted a day!
Also, It seems like everyone is so afraid of the blacks here? Speak up if see something you don't like. Take charge and never ever bow down to them. The south bowed and look what happened!

Funny how people see things differently. I have about 75 Chapel Hill Clients. These people that I know are very established, successful, keep a nice home, and their checks are good. Black, white, Korean, etc. The homes are very well kept, well furnished, well manicured. So, I'm not seeing it.

There was a neighborhood, can't remember the name of it right off the top of my head, but it was in Douglasville, and it wasn't Chapel Hills. On the surface it looked nice enough, just your standard cracker jack split foyers. But, I was approached by 'thugs' and felt very unsafe. They "were stayin with their aunt." It wasn't Chapel Hills, though. Wanted me to 'charge their cell phone,' very creepy, gold teeth, ass hanging out of their pants, what looked jail tattoos or gang symbols. Glad my husband was with me. I felt very unsafe. I really, really want to get a gun. I would have shot the bastards if they laid one hand on me.

People who live in Corn Crib don't get on this site silly! Those people over there mind their own business. they just get drunk, beat up their "old ladies," and aspire to do nothing more with their lives - remember though, they are all contained in one small area by the county landfill. They aren't spreading their borders like Chapel Hills. The new Chapel Hills area residents come out with weapons loaded, car jackings, shootings, slicings, rapes - for Heaven's sake - where have you been for the last 2 years? It's a ghetto over there! I feel sorry for some of my friends who bought homes in the area and now can't get out.

Well, you're just an 'across-the-board' redneck, huh? Just how narrow minded are you?

I live in Chapel Hills Golf and Country Club subdivision. Our subdivision is beautiful. We have very strong restrictions and we abide by them. The problems on Chapel Hill Road come from Annewakee, aka. The Armpit of Douglas County. The greedy builders keep expanding that area and it has destroyed the Chapel Hill schools. Our property values are the same as the rest of the housing market...down. However, when the market comes back, so will the property values in this subdivision unless Annewakee overtakes the entire county which is entirely possible. I was told by one of our commissioners that Rita Rainwater IS responsible for the downturn that has occurred in our county. She just wouldn't say "no" to any of the builders who wanted to build subpar housing.

As much as I disliked Rita she was only one vote, remember there were other votes to approve the rezoning.

THe commissioner that they talked to was probably 1 of those votes. Ritas gone but the sellout continues. How could this be? No more Rita no more problem? As with Bill Clinton Rita is no longer in office. When will people Start dealing with the current cast of bad actors and stop dwelling in the past and seek solutions for the future.

The county can easily prevent more section 8 housing. All they have to do is stop zoning residential developments that want to build on 1/6th acre lots with subpar construction. Building higher value homes would outprice section 8 tenants.

The county has already approved steps like min lot size for a septic tank, min sq footage. The problem now is the investors buying an incredible prices and turn those homes into rental property. If you have the money you need to start buying and get on the ban wagon.

You can't stop the commisioners. We had a subdivision wanting to be built up the street from me and the lots were zoned 3-5 acre. The deveoper threatend to sue, his attorney met with the commisioners and they approved them for 1 acre lots. We never got a say so. There was never any zoning notices, NOTHING. When I called and talked to Mike Nocare he stated they worked it out among attorneys and there was nothing for us to do!! This is how our wonderful county is run. If they turn it down the builder/developer will sue and they get what they want. We are screwed. OH yeah my property value has tanked!!!! Now the subdivision is sitting empty and will most likely be sold at some point and they will allow 1/4 acre. Then they will be turned section 8. Or the builder will build if he can get a loan and rent them out to undesireables!! I read recently in the Douglasville paper that Douglasville has enough empty subdivisions with and without houses already built to last 4 Years. UNREAL!!!!!

This is from a guy who says":

Faith-Based and Community Initiatives - As Chairman I hope to build a partnership with the communities to build a county that values dignity and equality for all people. This initiative believe we have more that unites us than divides us, and that people can honor their convictions through work for the Common Good. I support religious freedom and the right of all people to worship as they see fit. As Chairman, the county will fund 2 million a year to support Faith Based Social Programs. I will also be asking our local Churches to get more involved and take a bigger role in our social programs. The purpose of government is to help the people and that exactly what I am going to do.

He is a fake ladies and gentlemen - I have seen many time purchase beer and wine at local stores on Hwy 5 and looking very drunk! Yes it was James Quarterman. He is a shhep in wools clothing! Vote against this " Clayton County wanna us to be".

He also says:
This county for years has had a history of supporting a "Good Old Boy - Special Interest" agenda-- why don't you go ahead and say james quarterman that the white man has ruled here and do not beat around the bush. Nothing wrong with the way it was! I wished we still had the " real old Good ole boy network" and fools like you would not come in and try to make our county any worse than it already is. What do you want James, another Dekalb Fulton or Clayton County. I hope one day to see you heading east on I20 back to your old stomping grounds, because you will NEVER get elected here in DC!

Mr Quarterman you say: "I serve in my church as a trustee, youth advisor and choir member."

I ask "what church do you serve as I need to call and advise them what I saw and ask if the approve of YOUR alcohol purchases and drinking while serving your church.

or are you a "hypocrite" too?

If you live on the ocean, you can look out each day to a very beautiful picture.The warm breezes, the sea gulls, and OH YEA, the hurricanes.No matter where you live, you should have your home covered by insurance.The people who lived in the hurricanes path pretty much were free riders of the welfare system.Had they had home owners insurance they would be back in their homes by now.If they had had any common sence, they would have had a way to leave when the area was required to LEAVE to avoid the hurricane.You live on the ocean, you have to pay the price to live othere, or you can move to douglasville and get on section 8

I'm originally from NY and I have been living in Douglasville for about 3 years now. First, I don't really feel that in order to remain a safe town that public transportation and sidewalks should be frowned upon. Yes, I'm from NY however I'm from Westchester county and the majority of towns in Westchester either rival or put Alpharetta and Dunwoody to shame. There are sidewalks and transportation all the way through Westchester going towards the city and CT. However, the crime does not compare to the city at all. In my opinion, towns/cities/counties have the responsibility of providing residents with functional services. I just don't understand building a school next to 5 sub-divisions and not providing any sidewalks? Why not have an option for older/impaired citizens to travel using public transportation instead of driving? Why can't children use sidewalks to go to school/library or walk to the park? Where is your community Douglasville?

In case you didn't know there is a big difference between Dunwwody and DC. In case you didn't know DC is more rural. In case you didn't know our property taxes are lower than that of NY state.
