A complete ban on gas golf carts on Peachtree City’s paths in 10 years was temporarily postponed tonight.

Bon Jovi tribute band at 'The Fred,' Aug. 28

Wenzel unsuitable for superintendent

To the Fayette County Board of Education: I read each of the candidate’s applications and was struck by the lack of [Lyn] Wenzel’s suitability for the position in relation to the other two seemingly good choices.

Furthermore, I am surprised she is even being considered since she was a significant member of Dr. DeCotis’ totally flawed and failed administration.

I have spoken with many well-informed Fayette County residents and I can say without hesitation that none of them has a favorable opinion of Wenzel or of Dr. DeCotis’ former administration. Read More»
