Ricky, I agree with Goosey. This discussion is about the airport, not about the Drakes. No one is Drake bashing here. You have set up that imaginary paranormal alien STRAWMAN of Drake bashing as an excuse to gush and obsess about them on every Topix thread. Strange. Get over it.

I have explained myself too many times. I am talking to children, I should know better.

You people are the ones Macon Co. should bash. It is embarrassing to read grown adults burp such mush on a public forum. It is a stuck-in-the-mud, close-minded, ignorant perspective. A graduating high school student with this perspective would have absolutely no shot to excel in this labor market. As a relatively young Franklin resident, I can only hope that fresh thinking and relevant skills take over.

I'm more Franklin than any of you guys. Sorry not Sorry!!!!!!!!!!

I saw Miles Gregory today and asked him about if the Airport Board had to report to the county and he told me that they didn't have to because they were an idenpendent authority.
Right there is the problem for people in Macon County. Tax money is spent on the airport but there is no accounting, no reporting, no answering questions about operations or expenditures, no records of usage, and no record of it ever bringing any economic benefit into the county.

It is essentially a private airport operated at public expense.

I defend myself from posts targeted at me, about me, and you respond with that?!

That is rich. Good one Joe, I'll be seeing yall around. Too much time on this forum will make the public dumber. It sure is fun though.

LOL! Ricky still thinks this thread is about him. It's about the AIRPORT, Ricky.

So let whoever uses it pay for it. Why should all the rest of us taxpayers be charged for it? It ain't helping the county any. Not one fact ever been put forth to back it up that people who use the airport help the county in any way.

Still more county money to be spent on this airport boondoggle. Estimated $240,000 our taxpayer share, but of course it will end up being much more. And no records about use of airport, who by, how often, etc. What a rip off.

I tried to go to the last meeting of the airport board but was told that I could not because they were an authority and not subject to open meeting laws.

Is this true?

Why did Ron Haven get shut down today?
Who OWNS the airport?
Who OWNS the County Commissioners?
Who OWNS Franklin?
Who OWNS Macon County?
Who OWNS the taxpayers?
Or who THINKS they do?

Nowhere to be seen. Big rip-off for taxpayers by a bunch of blood sucking leeches.
