PTC Council expected to require pet leashes

Peachtree City pet owners may soon lose the ability to keep their pets under voice control.

At Thursday night’s City Council meeting, officials will consider adopting a requirement that all pets be leashed when off their owner’s property.

This would be a sweeping change for many pet owners who have become accustomed to walking their dogs on the path system unencumbered by leashes. However, several residents have told the City Council they have been accosted by uncontrolled dogs that were unleashed while they were on a path stroll. Read More»

PTC planners say OK to celltowers in shopping centers, office parks

The latest tweaks to Peachtree City’s new celltower ordinance will allow new towers in two new zoning categories currently not allowed by the existing ordinance.

Ramadan dinner & Grandma’s potluck

When I was a child, I spent a lot of time at my grandparents’ Methodist church in Winder, Ga. It was a tiny little church, full of wonderful people with warm hearts who took care of and loved each other.

Bill sets up 3% national tax

Everyone in America is being set up for a 3 percent tax, and most don’t even know about it.

On Feb. 23, 2010 a bill was introduced in the House of Representatives that will tax every monetary transaction made by anyone in the U.S. This bill must be voted on by Dec. 23, 2010, yet very few people have ever heard of it. Read More»

On private property, land grabs, Founding Fathers: Check history

Two weeks ago I sent you a email letter in response to Terry Garlock’s article about gas golf carts, which you never published. I’m thinking perhaps you may be biased as to its content, but perhaps one more attempt may be worthwhile.
