Peachtree City

Sidewalks to nowhere in a city of cart paths

The forethought and design of Peachtree City and the 90 miles of paths intertwined within makes it an ideal place to live. Whether you’re walking, running, cycling or carting, the paths provide a means of fun, safety and access. It eliminates the danger and congestion of automobile traffic, crosswalks, and red lights. Wow! What a concept!

Sidewalks in Peachtree City, you have to be kidding! Have you seen them? They’re not even sidewalks. Just mere cement pads to identify crosswalks. What a joke, besides a waste of time and money that could be used elsewhere. Read More»

Why is our tax money going to communists?

It would be interesting to see a tally of how much tax money Peachtree City collects from refugees of communism, having escaped Europe, Asia and Latin America.

From military members who have fought with service and blood against communism and from families who have lost loved ones in this never ending fight.

Yet the Peachtree City Council sees it fit to use part of this tax money, the people’s money, $50,000 to support a communistic enterprise masquerading under the name of SANY, subsidizing them, so they can compete in free world markets. Read More»

Councilwoman Fleisch: Recalling the days that changed our lives

Early last week, while doing things in and around Peachtree City, I overheard a conversation between two women. They were discussing the 9/11 remembrances going on across the country; the gist of the conversation was this: “that it was time to get over it.”

I was flabbergasted and couldn’t believe what I had heard, “get over it.” As I watched the memorial service at Ground Zero Sunday morning I couldn’t get that conversation out of my mind as I watched the names of those who perished that day scroll across the TV screen. Read More»

PTC needs ‘plastic bag’ law for dog gifts

As the crow flies, the distance from my back door, to the cart path is about the same distance as from the goal post to the 50-yard line.

No referee would be needed to come to the conclusion that my back yard sometimes has the aroma of a cow barn. Many people in PTC have dogs, and I have yet to see more that one dog walker in a hundred with a plastic bag hanging out his back pocket. Read More»

Thanks to friends after a storm

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our friends and neighbors on Journey’s End in Peachtree City for helping my husband and me when storms destroyed our home May 26.

We were at the movies and had no idea that storm had hit our home.

While we were gone, our friends notified authorities, helped emergency personnel secure the home, and removed trees blocking the street.

They opened their homes to us and our pets and showed us such love and support.

As we move back in, we’re daily reminded of their support and want to thank them all for such a generous outpouring. Read More»
