Alert Winston Residents!!!

Glad to hear your doc didn't sell out to Wellstar. My did, then retired a year later. Now it's so corporate in the office, you can never get an appointment and can never get a person on the phone. Now the new doc that came in is leaving. Progress.  (Aug 30, 2014 | post #13)

Trashy punks. It's a shame there wasn't a chase that ended with the robbers dead.  (Aug 30, 2014 | post #2)

May 20, it's time for a change in the DC BOC

My turn: I have been here ten years, from the north, so yeah I am part of the problem. I do contribute a lot of property tax so here's my thoughts. Since I moved here, people have been bitching about the mall. Here's the thing: it ain't going anywhere, so deal with it. Growth is inevitable. Growth is good when done right and well planned. I drive to Newnan and Fayetteville often. Based on what I see, the commercial areas have grown just as much, if not more, than Douglasville. There is a noticeable traffic difference though - it's much more bearable in Newnan, Fayetteville, and Peachtree City. Why? Better, more sensible planning. I won't go out in Douglasville after 4 on weekdays or on weekends at all. It's well known: the traffic sucks. But the area is not that densely packed with people, so what happened? Piss poor planning. I guess 10-15-20 years ago the good ole boys saw dollar signs and approved everything in sight. Too many outlot businesses and strip malls on Douglas blvd. The strip mall where Bagel dude is and the outlots where the Panda meat place is should not have been approved or built without a larger setback and better traffic patterns through all the property. Morons. Hell, just wait until the Academy Sports opens: which I support but who the hell thought it was a good idea to put direct access, with a light off of 5 to get in there? That place should have only been accessible from the connector. So the only solution at this point is to spend a ton of money to improve traffic, because if the ridiculous gridlock continues around 20 and chapel hill, 5 & 20, and everywhere on Douglas blvd it will have a negative effect on the economic development of the area. That will drive development elsewhere along the 20 corridor (to which everyone says "great" until empty storefronts pop up). So yes, I will stand up for higher taxes if they can fix the damn roads around here. And heck, it's closer for me to go to Newnan, but I would rather shop where I live, so let's fix it. (Or develop the highway 5 and 166 corridor....then I would stay outta d-vile). I am not real familiar with David Scott but according to his commercial he got tons of money for Douglas County roads (don't worry I am not that gullible). But I have to question the judgement of the powers that be who are redoing the Lithia Springs interchange while seemingly ignoring 5's. Here is what we need to help with traffic....and it won't be cheap: Chapel Hill: - get rid of the cloverleaf exit from 20 to chapel hill. Make a left turn - need an exit on 20 east between 5 and chapel hill that dumps directly on to Douglas blvd - direct merging access from that panda / bagel dude area right on to 20 east - two lanes on Chapel Hill all the way to 166 5: - new bridge over 20. Two turn lanes on and off of 20 in every direction. - take Walgreens, Dunkin Donuts, and Cheveron (I think that's what it is) by fair priced eminent domain to unclog 5 and Douglas Blvd. Again, it need two lanes in every direction including turns ... so 5-6 lanes in each direction at the intersection (2 left, 2 thru and 1-2 right) I am telling you, the fact that the intersection backs up 1/2 mile to a mile in each direction is a ridiculous issue Bright star : - two lanes each way from central church to 5. - an exit off 20 to Bright star.....yeah sorry about this, bright star is my shortcut, this will ruin that but I am willing to sacrifice for all you people :) - direct exit on to Bright star connector on 20 west after 5..... You will all thank me later for that one. I can think of a few more but since I have already spend hundreds of millions of dollars, I'll wait. I guess I need to call David Scott? Or Joe's Beer Joint needs to run for election. Okay - time to take my short cuts to Kroger before Armageddon starts at about 11 on them clogged roads out there.  (Mar 1, 2014 | post #23)

Sorry to the car I cut off on S Fulton

Joe Yule - no I don't, still feel like a dick. It just burns me up when people do that to me and I stir about it for my whole drive, so at least on the off chance that silver compact reads topix he will at least know I feel remorse for being a crappy, uncourteous driver...  (Dec 23, 2013 | post #3)

Sorry to the car I cut off on S Fulton

So I was driving on South Fulton Parkway this morning, like a maniac, as always. A work van was going slow as hell so I went to pass the car behind him and him. Unfortunately a car came around the bend and I had to cut off a silver compact hatchback with those really bright lights (I know this because they were turned on for me) and sandwich between slow van and him/her. Dangerous and unsafe. I am sorry to the hatchback person. I hate when people do that to me and feel awful. I'll slow down and take me time for a while now. Merry Christmas!  (Dec 23, 2013 | post #1)

So I just wasted 36 minutes of my life and watched a video about some low-life self appointed "dr." jack hyles. Other than Shelly's (the letter writer) husband being mentioned in the first three minutes of the video as having been a bus driver for hyles, and accused of some bad stuff, what does the video have to do with any of this? Is Kings Way a cult like Hyles ran? Did the dude that try to off himself work for Hyles? I am confused, which is easy to do. Candace, nothing is hysteria driven.  (Oct 22, 2013 | post #37)

Church court? WTF. I don't think so. Talk about being able to fix the outcome and sweep it under the rug. Maybe dickface Hyles can oversee the proceedings. Jeri Massi - who are you and what's your connection to all this?  (Oct 22, 2013 | post #27)

I put my detective show, Law and Order, on pause to watch the video.... WOP...I am thinking the Foeller in the video is husband of the letter writer. Because it would be insanely ironic if there were two Shelly Foellers. Maybe she did't know all this crap was going on. Hell the video looks old..maybe 2005 or so. Interesting. Very interesting. What really shocks me is that people get sucked in to these cult-like congregations. Can't people think of for theirselves? All they are doing is lining the pockets of these old stupid farts. They are all pretty sick. Jack Hyles is a dork. Oh and I know the video is older than 2005.  (Oct 22, 2013 | post #25)
