...fines for texting while police discretion...

In the City of Greed, one can be texting and commit vehicular homicide. No Ticket, no points. It is at the discretion of the Police of Greed. Special consideration is given to slumlords, combat veterans, city officials, and 'almost' officials. Of course if you are a bank robber or a rapist or hold up a drug store or beat someone to death, drown someone or use drugs on Trade Street you are pretty sure to get away as well. Just my opinion of the City of Greed, of course I have no proof...just what I read in the papers. Jack Davis Third Ward City of Greed  (Mar 11, 2010 | post #1)

Greer Police Search For Bank Robber

The police in the City of Greed are too busy with war stories and "playing army" to pay much atention to any crime. They would rather solve imaginary crimes and generate spread sheets with faulty formulas. Jack Davis Third Ward City of Greed  (Mar 10, 2010 | post #1)

Greer primes for return to growth era

Ed Driggers, administrator for the "City of Greed" paid your tax money for the following plan. An aggressive annexation policy, (Force residents of Taylors to submit to Greed taxes with no increase in the quality of life) Extensive utility infrastructure development and improvement (Spend CPW money to build instead of using funds to reduce the cost of CPW services) Best management practices in land-use planning, (push the poor out of the city, they will not be able to afford to live here anyway). And Comprehensive economic development strategies (Raise taxes and fees on existing businesses) ... Factors that should contribute to the city of Greer sustaining its population rate of growth into the near future (Using taxes to improve the value of "Pals of Greed" property and forcing areas to accept annexation or have their water and sewer cut off) The city would: Recruit a unique retail anchor (Neiman Marcus? Tiffany’s?) Market “hip and historic downtown,” (Slogan: "Come slumming in Downtown Greed; bring your own fire extinguisher" ) (Vehicle manslaughter and parking tickets validated) City Park and the events center at City Hall (only the water-fountains are free) Establish a tourism strategy and a visitors’ center. (Borrow more money to build another building that we do not need) Greer businessperson Amanda Somers can be counted on to speak up for the City, with whom she has a contract to provide services to all the employees of Greed.  (Mar 10, 2010 | post #1)

Citizens of Greed made to pay for upgrades

Citizens of Greed made to pay for upgrades to businesses by JackDaniel_ » Sat Mar 06, 2010 10:20 am "[Greer] CPW will replace an old, often-repaired 1.5-inch water line with an 8-inch water line behind buildings in the 200 block of Trade, add a fire hydrant and run a new 8-inch line along an alley parallel to Randall Street over to School Street at a cost of $41,000." For a CPW that charges $600 to replace sewage taps the $40,000 sounds low. (This is only the first of many charges to make someone else’s Trade St. property more valuable) The Administration of the City of Greed has been pushing the development for a 'trendy' development of Trade St. The Citizens of Greed were not told that it would be their money used to make the property more valuable. The excessive number of restaurants on Trade have pushed the limits of the infrastructure past what it can handle (especially considering the fire-trap nature of 100 year old buildings with 'boom town’ roofs made of pine wood and tar). The next changes the City (through CPW) makes will be to improve sewer and power to the 'favored restaurants' and condos. I suggest the Citizens of Greed look at who owns the buildings, which real estate company is selling them, and who will benefit most from the City or Greed dipping into your pockets. The City Administrator is paying for a “Planning“ project (with tax payer money) so that they will have someone to blame on for the continued purchase of property for parking and the continued development of Trade Street Slums should the citizenry ever wake up. I suggest turning the lawn of the New City Hall into a parking lot and selling some of the high priced speculative property the city has bought from ‘connected’ individuals.JackDa niel_  (Mar 6, 2010 | post #1)

Ludwig Law: Too rich to get punished for murder

Greed is the biggest problem in America, I think excessive Bureaucracy is a sign of Greed and 29651 and 29650 have too much Greed.

Property owners think they got a raw deal…

Property owners think they got a raw deal… Spartanburg County Councilman Dale Culbreth said. "One of my pet peeves is the fact that -- with commercial properties in particular -- the reassessment we went through this past year, they're basing it on 2007. And business has declined drastically with most people. I know it has in my businesses. It doesn't really matter what it was worth in 2007, 2008. My property is worth what I can sell it for today," Maybe this is why the City of Greed imposed a flat fee on all property owners. The City of Greed has maxed out the cap on millage rates (? Highest in the state?) so they can cover up the additional raise in taxes by invoking a flat fee. The thing that gets me is that Ed Driggers (Administrator for the City of Greed) is going to take $100,000.00 of tax money to pay for a “planning study”. I wonder if they are planning a ghetto or a gulag. Increasing the taxes here in Greed will hurt property values…at least for the average citizen. Has anyone got any idea how to get the Greed out of Greer? At least Spartanburg is meeting in public to discuss it. “Culbreth, chairman of the council's personnel and finance committee, and other county leaders will gather at 9 a.m. today to start what's likely to be a long, perhaps painful conversation about crafting next year's spending plan.” All this is decided in “executive session” in the City of Greed.

“Truck hits, kills man at Whitney convenience store”

“Truck hits, kills man at Whitney convenience store” Why is the driver of the truck here listed by name and the man who ran over the retired teacher in Greer on 205 Arlington Rd. kept from the public? I have driven that road a dozen times since the tragedy and cannot see how anyone could have run over an 82-year-old woman. The road is straight and the lighting is sufficient. The posted speed is 35 mph (52 feet a second). Normal reaction time is one tenth of a second. (Five feet). It is impossible for me to conceive that the driver was not distracted. I think the City of Greed worked to cover up the killers identity. I am old enough to remember back when the city officials and the police were people who could be respected. I sure do miss America and the American Ideals. Where did America go? Jack Davis Third Ward City of Greed  (Mar 5, 2010 | post #1)

Greer looks for ways to deal with shrinking revenue

Mr29651 Wrote (in the GnoozHow about cutting about 48 city employees? (commensurate with the unemployment rate plus the downturn in need) Some of them have actively participated in the *City of Greed* master plan. Let us get a City Administrator with a salary we can afford. Why do we pay about the same as towns ten times our size? I wonder who "totes the note" for the recent expansion? What kind of interest rates do we pay to the “Greer Station” and “Mayor Bank” crowds? Did you ever think about what "Greer Station" means? It is a scheme about the “City of Greed” having a light rail "commuter feeder station" to bring business to the *downtown* slumlords and real estate barons. What effect will that have on businesses located away from downtown? I admit there are advantages to the plan, but the taxpayers will foot the bill and others will rake in the money.  (Dec 26, 2009 | post #2)

Greer anticipates slow start to year

Lan Nundeen wrote: “GREER — Things might be looking up a little, but not loosening up yet as far as the flow of money goes, according to folks who track the economy in Greer, which until the recession hit was experiencing almost boom times." This lead-in is almost as bad as the story about the utility truck chase in Anderson. Did you actually go to journalism school? Were you absent the day they taught writing? Do you *ever* question what you are told to report? It’s in the movies and fairy tales that one is supposed to have a "voluntary suspension of disbelief" not the news and not the *journalist*. Are there any facts to substantiate the claims Wryley Bettis makes about the success of the Greer Development Corp? Why don’t you do a story about Reno Deaton, the “future commuter rail station”, and the condemnation of hundreds of pieces of property by Phil Rhodes? How about a story on money laundering or slum lords?  (Dec 26, 2009 | post #1)

Greer grapples with a newly projected $1.3 million deficit

Charles Lindsey ran for mayor of Greer several years ago. In his campaign he predicted that spending plans by the city administration were excessive. In spite of the "smear campaign" (audio files available) Charlie garnered a respectable vote count against the current Bank of Greer candidate. When one looks at the budget for Greer as compared to Spartanburg or Greenville it is apparent that the budget for Greer is way out of line for the size of Greer. The salary for the City Administrator is about equal to that of Spartanburg and Greenville (public records not available). I am not suggesting that the city administrator is not worth what he is paid. I do suggest that his salary and his plans for Greer are beyond what Greer can afford. Can Greer find a candidate for Mayor and three council persons who are qualified to represent all the citizens of Greer and who are fiscally responsible for the next election? Of the current crop of council persons only one stands out as a real representative of the citizens.  (Dec 17, 2009 | post #1)
