Haddix libel defense: Logsdon remains ‘public figure’

There’s a new twist in the libel lawsuit filed by former Peachtree City Mayor Harold Logsdon against current Peachtree City Mayor Don Haddix.

Haddix has already admitted that he said that Logsdon “came to meetings part drunk” in an email to a city staffer Feb. 22. Haddix also has said he “regrets” making the statement.

In addition to using the public apology as a defense, Haddix is also planning to contend that Logsdon “continues to qualify as a public figure,” according to Haddix attorney John Mrosek of Fayetteville. Read More»

There are good ideas and then there are great ideas. Zara Morgan, 7, of Peachtree City had a great idea when she heard some of the parents at her sister’s morning swimming practices wishing they had a cup of coffee. If she set up a coffee stand and sold coffee and muffins, the parents needing a little morning pick me up would probably buy something. Read More»

3 commissioners block tax debate

It should come as no surprise that an immovable majority on the Fayette County Board of Commissioners — who put their relatives on the Board of Elections to oversee their re-election bids, push expensive and unwarranted road projects, voted on contacts and other expenditures in the millions without putting the items on an agenda, voted to keep us in the regional mass transit plans and consistently approve no-bid contracts for everything from grass cutting to engineering services — is frantically attempting to thwart a fellow commissioner from trying to rescue a failed budgeting process which w Read More»

Why is bypass so crucial?

Why does the bypass have such strong support from commissioners Frady, Hearn and Horgan? Do you ever ask yourself that question?

The road goes nowhere, it is wasting millions of dollars and there has never been a road study to support why it should be built.

The hidden force that has convinced the group of three, that this road is a must build, should make most people with common sense more then a little suspicious of the commissioners’ motivations.

I say hidden force because those people have never come forth to the public to state their reasons for supporting this road project. Read More»

PTC, honor and other intemperate thoughts: Haddix deserves censure

The ongoing saga involving our current and former mayors can best be described as nothing more than blight upon the reputation of our fair city. For a sitting mayor to accuse anyone of conducting city business while intoxicated (or partly) literally years after the fact and not surfacing the issue when it allegedly occurred demonstrates a character flaw I call cowardice. If it did not occur, then the man has proven himself a purveyor of prevarication. Again. Read More»
