Traffic ‘fix’ only fated to create bottleneck
Posted: July 28, 2018 - 12:00 am

The pile of concrete blocking the intersection and forcing all drivers to turn a direction on Highway 78 that they do not want to go then make a U-turn into oncoming traffic is the best that our engineers could come up with. And for the amazing price of the concrete of just under $74,000.

Zoning column missed point in many ways
Posted: July 14, 2018 - 12:00 am

Re: your Opinion article “Old Zoning Rules Create Recent Debate.”  First, I find it disturbing that Andrew Kenneson wrote an opinion piece on this issue when he was also the reporter who covered the meeting the residents of the Pollock neighborhood had with Paul Rosenthal.  I was a journalist for 42 years.  I was taught to deal only in facts and to keep my personal opinions to myself.  Even during my years at CNN, as it was beginning its hard turn to the left, several anchors and reporters were fired for expressing personal opinions on the air.  This raises questions about The Tribune’s standards of journalistic ethics.

Challenging Hice to make a plan on budget
Posted: May 19, 2018 - 12:00 am

GOP Chairman Roy Roberts in his letter replying to my letter on Rep. Jody Hice’s successive columns indicates that I did not make myself sufficiently clear in my letter or that he did not read it carefully.

Blame Democrats, not Hice, for national debt
Posted: May 12, 2018 - 12:00 am

It is always intriguing to me how Democrats like Stanley Kelley complain about Republicans increasing the nation debt (Jody Hice) when they increased the national debt under Obama from $10 trillion to $20 trillion in eight years ( More than the total for all of the presidents before him). He then criticizes the spending for the military that was reduced under Obama to critical levels that threatened the ability of our military to conduct its normal activities.

Tax assesment a long, complicated process
Posted: May 12, 2018 - 12:00 am

By now property owners may have received their Annual Assessment Notices which are sent out by the Walton County Board of Tax Assessors during the first week in May. Many people are concerned that the “100 percent Appraised Value” listed for their property does not accurately reflect its true value.  However, according to Walton County Chief Tax Assessor Harry Knight, the “Fair Market Value” listed in the notice is not the value of each individual piece of property but the median price of sales in the county for similar property.

Tax savings do not offset increase in insurance
Posted: May 12, 2018 - 12:00 am

The recent article about tax savings in Georgia struck a nerve with me. My gross income and standard deduction were within $200 of the prior year's figures, yet my 2017 Georgia State income tax was $500 more than the year before.

Roberts’ comments lacked needed context
Updated: May 05, 2018 - 12:04 am

I would like to clarify some of the statements that were attributed to me in the story “Loganville in line for 2 mill tax increase” that was published in the April 28-29 edition of The Walton Tribune.
